Obama Schedules 'Jobs' Speech to Coincide with GOP Debate

As Mark Halperin would say, he's being a dick.
President Barack Obama will make his long-awaited speech about jobs Wednesday night to a joint session of Congress at the same time that the Republican presidential candidates are scheduled to debate at the Reagan Presidential Library in California.
Long-awaited? Huh? Since when, 10 days ago?
While the debate isn’t the first Republican debate of the cycle, it is the first since Gov. Rick Perry entered the presidential contest, and polls have shown him taking a commanding lead in the race for the GOP nomination. Political observers have said that the debate could provide crucial insights into how Mitt Romney’s and Michelle Bachmann’s campaigns plan to deal with Perry’s surging candidacy.

In his letter to House Speaker John Boehner requesting the joint meeting of both houses of Congress, Obama wrote that he will unveil a series “bipartisan proposals” that Congress can take up immediately to “rebuild the American economy.”
Boehner should tell him to pound sand.

Tell DumBHO to go to go back to Solydra (greentech tax tick) in Fremont, CA  to tell the thousands of workers who were laid off today how his policies are helping them. He can do a "listening tour" and bring Dr Chu from DOE along with him to tell how he meant well when giving out over $500,000,000 in taxpayer guarantees to a business had been identified as completely uncompetitive on a global basis. BTW, ABC reported back in MAy that DumBHO & Co, broke many regualtions to rush through approvals and dish out the dough.

Yesterday, DOE must have had "heads-up" and scrubbed their website of details on the loan guarantee scam that could total over $30 billion - big bucks to VC greentech parasites

What to watch? Omama and another one of his finger pointing sessions with his lap dogs the Lame Stream Media eagerly awaiting the crumbs and lies Omama is sure to toss them.


A debate featuring the next President of the U.S. along with a series of gotch-ya questions by an in-the-tank group of ass kissing media people masqurerading as "political reporters" designed to make the Republicans look ______________. You fill in the blank line yourself.
