    what a horrible person and Party..this is how much they CARE about jobs... AND YOU..links in article at site.

    SNIP:
    The American left and its handmaidens in the Old Media spent 24 hours desperately trying to spin Obama’s attempt to schedule a joint session of Congress on the same day as the GOP debate as an example of how the GOP is refusing to work with him. These leftists categorically deny that Obama was simply engaging in political brinkmanship, using his selection of Sept. 7 as a political ploy. But the very night that Obama was shot down by Speaker Boehner on the date he chose for his jobs address, Obama’s campaign sent out a fundraising letter that pretty much proves that Obama intended the whole episode to be the very political ploy his pals in the Old Media tried to deny was happening.

    SNIP:
    This was an unprecedented move.

    Politics is a blood sport and Obama just bloodied himself again.
    Good find, Steph.

    he sent out a fund raising letter on the same night Boehner asked him to switch the speech. Whoa...that means....what does that mean? Obama sent out campaign letters? OH THE HORROR! I thought I would never see the day when someone didnt know the definition of proof

    The problem I see with this joint session speech is that it shows how amatuerish this guy is.

    This is the kind of thing you do when you are a "Community Organizer". Show up at someone else's ceremony or event and start a little protest to get some attention. And Obama learned at the feet of the masters of this like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

    But a President has to be a bit more than that. Joint sessions are for things like declaring war or announcing a vast program. He was treating it like a demonstration at a WalMart opening.

    Is English you second language?

    This leaves open only two possibilities, both quite plausible:

    1) Boiking doesn't know the constitutional protocol for assembling a joint session of congress for the purpose of presidential addresses.....A high degree of plausibility, seeing he's shown himself to be completely incompetent in other areas of the protocol of the office.

    2) He knew the requisite formalities and chose to ignore them for whatever reason....Also carrying a high degree of probability, as he has shown numerous times that he seems to fancy himself an autocrat.

    So, he's either stupid or a tyrant...Take your pick.

    Is there an "all of the above" choice?

    :lol: The hubbub earlier this week was over his request (of Boehner and Reid) for the joint session, not some imaginary "announcement" or "decree" from the White House. You couldn't wait a full week to rewrite history to fit your narrative?

    Dear Mr. Speaker: (Dear Mr. Leader: )

    Our Nation faces unprecedented economic challenges, and millions of hardworking Americans continue to look for jobs. As I have traveled across our country this summer and spoken with our fellow Americans, I have heard a consistent message: Washington needs to put aside politics and start making decisions based on what is best for our country and not what is best for each of our parties in order to grow the economy and create jobs. We must answer this call.

    Therefore, I respectfully request the opportunity to address a Joint Session of Congress on September 7, 2011, at 8:00 p.m. It is my intention to lay out a series of bipartisan proposals that the Congress can take immediately to continue to rebuild the American economy by strengthening small businesses, helping Americans get back to work, and putting more money in the paychecks of the Middle Class and working Americans, while still reducing our deficit and getting our fiscal house in order. It is our responsibility to find bipartisan solutions to help grow our economy, and if we are willing to put country before party, I am confident we can do just that.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Sincerely,

    Barack Obama​
