    So on the FIRST DAY that the Congress and Senate come back from vacation, the President wants to schedule a joint session to address them on his new proposed plan for creating jobs in America ASAP.

    The President submits the formal request to the Majority Speaker of the House of Representatives....and about 4 hours later is told that ANOTHER time would be more convenient due to "security arrangement" matters and the like.

    Since the early 1900's when President's started making actual visits to the House to address them, NO PRESIDENT'S REQUEST HAS EVER BEEN DENIED UNTIL NOW.

    Interesting that the very political party that has been wailing for months that they are waiting for the President to present a plan for jobs in America SUDDENLY can't fit the President of the USA in for a quick address.

    Now if one is to believe the GOP's favorite pundit Rush Limbaugh, Speaker Boehner rejected the initial request date in order to put Obama "in his place" and not let the President have the upper hand as taking a leadership position....especially since it would coincide with the first scheduled GOP Presidential candidacy debate.

    This is just another example to the American people that the GOP is NOT about the general welfare of the people, but about the corporate welfare and secured economic greed of the wealthiest 1 to 3% of the population.

    Now a true leader, like the Castro of old, would have frog-marched them all into session.

    Which only goes to prove that Our Kenyan President is ineducable.

    Of course. The conservative GOP representatives have never been about the people. Rather, it's all about the greed. Always has been. On another matter, I've always found it interesting that so-called devout Christians keep backing the greed mongering right-wing republicans, rather than candidates that are totally in favor of the poor and down-trodden. Clearly, they're not real Christians. Jesus would be ashamed of them, of that we can be assured. One thing certain, when their time comes, it's not upward they'll be going.

    Well better then backing a system of government that slaughters hundreds of millions of its own people, and works to centralize all the power into the hands of a few.

    What better way to help the poor and the worker then to have a healthy and free economy based on freedom. A system that has worked for hundreds of years and made this world 100 times more wealthy everywhere it is tried. :evil: It is NOT perfect, but it is the best we have.

    MATTHEW....Personally, I'm a Centrist. I believe in elements of both sides. Just not extremes of either.
    However, socialism isn't a step toward communism. Most of the European nations are socialist, yet the public is free to vote for whom they please. They can also own property and become rich. It's just that because their governments are socialist in nature, the public has a safety-net, should they need it. I see nothing wrong with ensuring that your people are taken care of. Afterall, they've supported their governments all their lives. Once elderly or unable to do, it is only fair that their government support them.
    For the US, I believe in social security and medicare. If you've worked all your life supporting the capitalist system, I don't think it's asking too much for the government to return the favor when you are unable to do so, or having difficulty taking care of yourself. All people in their nation, should have access to health care, nutritious food and a clean, comfortable place to sleep. To not believe so, is to be less than human.

    Oh please. Obama and his crew knew damned well there was a GOP presidential campaing debate scheduled LONG in advance of his suggestion to speak before a joint session of Congress.
    Can you give a good solid reason why the Congress and the American people would want to through a 45 minute campaign speech under the guise of doing something no one in government can do which is force the private sector to hire people with nothing of substance.
    Obama may as well use his time a bit better and go out to try to save his political base.
    He's not going to get anywhere if he intends on introducing another federal spending plan.
    It's not going to happen.

    I assure you, Matthew, The Republicans learned a lesson from the huge white paper delivered to be passed by Democrats in Congress before 2010. It was a horrendous bill, and nobody had time to read and understand everything about it because it was too long and devised by people greedy to micromanage every aspect of people's lives and foist a failed system of micromanagement by the federal government of things only states and districts should finance and govern.

    All of us are torn by claims of foul play when it comes to taking care of the health care of children and people in poor families. The only trouble is, the level of poverty today in America includes people who own 3-bedroom homes, 2 cars, 2 color tvs, computers, washer, dryer, refrigerator, stove--people who in the 50s were considered upper middle class.

    We need a balance, but it's a mistake for a party to elect only extremists like Obama and Pelosi to guide a party who makes the rules or makes big splashes on the news about the alleged heartless people on the other side of the aisle, which is also not true.

    We need to get a grip and stop electing extremists and get back to electing regular people from among us who we think will represent not only us but our country in a way that is beneficent to all Americans.

    That's a difficult balance in its best light.
