Obama calls for a joint session of Congress to give a campaign speech about jobs – on the same night and time as the Republican Presidential Debate
White House Press Secretary Tells GOP “They can reschedule”.
UPDATE: Speaker John Boehner refuses to convene the session, asks Obama to choose another night.
It’s just incredible. As far back as this blog’s inception, warnings about the arrogant condescension of His Heinous, Barrack Hussein Obama doesn’t assuage the incredulity that his regime generates. It’s truly surprising.
What is stunning, is not the hubris itself that was expected from this President, but the acceptance of it by large majority of Americans whom historically, have rejected such blatant arrogance from it’s civil servants.
It’s amazing to watch and hear the blatant and in-your-face efforts this regime is ramping up, taunting and almost daring someone to defy him. There’s not even a semblance of courtesy or gentlemanly statesmanship from this regime. The monarchy of Lois the XVI’s cannot compare to the extravagance and disdain this Administration showcases.
Because the collapsing economy and the need to create jobs are so important to The One, he decided that he would wait until AFTER his ninth vacation and 68th round of golf since he was crowned in 2009 to give what the media will most likely dub ‘his most important speech as President’ to outline his own “jobs” plan. We assume His Heinous will entreat the country with yet another demand for a trillion-dollar “stimulus” designed to grow the government behemoth even larger and bankrupt the nation further into eternal debt.
But given that we know Obama is a broken teleprompter of useless campaign tripe and class warfare, what was startling about Obama’s call for a joint session of Congress to deliver another lecture in Socialism, is the day and time he demanded it.
You see Wednesday September 7th at 8 PM Eastern, is the Republican Debate from the Reagan Library. A date that was planned and set since May 3, 2011 at 4:59 PM.
But the audacity of Obama knows no bounds, and in typical Chicago Political Thug fashion – he decides to try and nullify the Republican event altogether by holding the networks captive to cover a joint session of Congress for the purpose of providing a platform for another Obama teleprompter speech. And speaking of joint sessions of Congress, those are given historically for special occasions like the State of the Union or urgent situations such as declarations of war or consultation for use of force authorizations. To use such occasions to attempt to ramrod yet another big government political agenda down the nation’s throats is again, the audacity that characterizes the Obama regime.
Where the arrogant condescension and disdain are self-evident, is in the remarks by Obama’s Propagandist in Chief: Jay Carney.
First he lies and says that the scheduling of the request at the same time and date as the GOP Debate is ‘coincidence’. Obama sent the request for the joint session on Wednesday, the Debate has been set since last May. Does Carney really think the American people are stupid enough to assume that the Obama regime did not know when the Republican debate was going to occur?
But I’m more interested in the choice of words and tone this guy used.
“It is one debate of many [that will air] on one channel of many… [and] there are many other factors here” to consider when scheduling a major address from the president….Carney gave NBC his permission to reschedule the Republican debate so it doesn’t conflict with the president’s speech, saying “if the network so chose and the candidates so chose” to reschedule, “that would be completely fine with us.”
How mighty white and benevolent of him to grant ‘permission’ for a news network to reschedule an event they had set since May to accommodate an egomaniacal narcissist who can’t get enough of his face on TV to lecture the American people and make demands!
But miracles do sometimes happen, and the Speaker replied to the request from the White House with these words:
“Sept. 8th would be better “so we can ensure there will be no parliamentary or logistical impediments that might detract from your remarks.”
What will be interesting is the fallout from John Boehner suddenly growing a set and telling the TOTUS that he gives him permission to reschedule his ‘joint session’ campaign speech for the following night. Look for the term ‘obstructionists’ to be screamed from the pulpits of punditdom and Jay Carney’s office over this slight against the Anointed One. Yet as Boehner points out in his letter, a Resolution is required to be passed by both Houses before an agreement can be made to receive the President – and Harry Reid himself said that they will not be in session until 6:30 PM on the 7th and no time for voting for that resolution.
Still, expect this regime and the media mouthpieces of the MSM to try and capitalize on the Constitutional ignorance of their audience and constituencies.
But I’d bet dollars of debt that even Obama’s constituencies are going to be watching the NFL as opposed to TOTUS on the evening of the 8th.
Oh goodie, look for The One and the State-Foisted Media to use this ‘acceptance’ as a pointer to insist that Obama can “compromise” with the GOP and therefore, because His Heinous has bent the knee and relented on the date he demands an audience with a joint session of Congress – everyone should “compromise” and agree with his “jobs plan”.
The more hope and change, the more things stay the same with this regime, and worse for the rest of the nation.
