And stupid too.
The next Republican candidates’ debate has long been scheduled for September 7 in California. Today Obama’s office announced his big jobs’ speech will be the same night just before the debate – and it will be delivered to a joint session of Congress. (This is assuming John Boehner permits it – it’s his decision.)
I hope I’m reading this wrong, but I think my prez just effectively shifted the focus from the jobs issue to the politics of the freaky scheduling. And precluded any serious discussion following his speech. It’s all spectator sport now for the political class.
Let’s leave rude to the lower life forms.
UPDATE: Looks like Obama took another bullet from a gun he aimed at himself. Boehner said ‘pretty please come another time” and Barry said ‘sure, whatever works’. Makes me wonder again, what the hell kind of advice is he getting.
