Makes sense, since Barry has already gotten into the habit of bowing to other leaders...
linkWASHINGTON (AP) - In a retreat after an hours-long test of wills Wednesday, President Barack Obama agreed to deliver an address on jobs and the economy to a joint session of Congress on Sept. 8, yielding to House Speaker John Boehner, who had balked at Obama's request for a Sept. 7 speech.
Obama's address still gives him a grand stage to unveil his economic agenda, but it will compete with the opening game of the National Football League season - a conflict the White House wanted to avoid.
The change now will allow a planned Sept. 7 Republican presidential debate in Simi Valley, Calif., to proceed without Obama upstaging it.
