Obama's childish and classless action in trying to upstage the GOP debate the same night was seen for what it was and forced him to "reschedule".
The latest sparring began early Wednesday, when Obama’s staff surprised leaders of both parties by informing them the president wanted to reserve a prime-time slot, 8 p.m. ET next Wednesday, to address the House and Senate on the nation’s employment crisis and how he plans to reconcile the need for job creation with the imperative of deficit reduction.
That the White House sprang the speech on short notice to everyone isn’t in dispute. The president’s letter was leaked to the press shortly after House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) was told of the request.I am so proud of the GOP and Leader Boehner for having the balls and further exposing Obama for the petulant and weak leader he is.
Republicans were incensed. The address would conflict with Rick Perry’s debut in the POLITICO/NBC Republican presidential debate — which administration officials insisted was pure coincidence.
