So he cancelled...

He cancelled because Nancy Pelosi has say over the house... and she said NO!

Man, I can't wait for when Republicans win the House and don't invite the current Dem Pres to give the SOTU.

Nice precedent she just set.

Unheard of.

I don't think this will ever happen again.
Pelosi will get to carry this albatross throughout history.

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.


I have a question. Sometimes I get into trouble asking questions. But I have to ask this one.

I understand, as Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi is in charge of the members of the House of representatives. Who, or what agency, is in charge of the building in which the house of representatives hold their meetings ? Which part of the U S government is in charge of this agency ? Who is responsible for keeping the lights turned on and the door locks and hinges working properly ?

It would seem to me these are the ones who could tell the President, or anyone else, if they were welcome to enter or not. My point being, Pelosi is only in charge of the members of the house when it is in secession and not the building itself. Could she be over stepping the bounds of her role as Speaker ?

"If this is true", to use a term slightly over used recently, how can she dictate where and when the President of the United States can deliver the State of the Union Address ??

No he didn't. Not to us voters and the American people. He will still talk to us and THAT is what matters. You can believe that Ol Nancy is dictating what he does but she is not. She is being a righteous bitch in her own mind with her own little House friends. She almost did not get the chair till they started threatening those who opposed her. They cave and gave in to her and voted and THIS is what we have.

A House of Representatives run as dysfunctional as possible.

Hate to break it to you deary, but the SOTU cannot be cancelled by anyone without the risk of violating Constitutional requirements of the office. If you actually heard/read his exact words, it was postponed. For the ignorant that do not understand that word, here is the definition:



postpone verb

post·​pone | (ˌ)pōs(t)-ˈpōn
postponed; postponing
Definition of postpone
transitive verb

1 : to put off to a later time : DEFER
2a : to place later (as in a sentence) than the normal position in English
postpone an adjective
b : to place later in order of precedence, preference, or importance


It will still happen, but he has set the precedence to be lower than getting the government back up and running first. See, it seems, at least to the president, that is more important than giving the SOTU. And, if it lasts until the end of the year, it would risk being a Constitutional violation. Then,. those attempting to block it from happening would be complicit in that Constitutional violation (i.e. Nancy Pelosi).

Correct. He will, again, change what has been for decades a pompous clapping for our leader moment.

Last year remember Democrats calling on others to not attend? I do.

Multiple Democrats did not even bother to show up but had there own 'State of OUR Union' event put on by female activists. Here are some of them Reps. John Lewis, Maxine Waters, Frederica S. Wilson, Gregory W. Meeks, Danny Davis, Bobby Rush, Jan Schakowsky, Albio Sires, and Earl Blumenauer. All haters so who cares. If they do not want to know about the Constitutionally mandated SOTU f'em.

I am looking forward to hearing the president talk about the 'State of our Unon' and she how divided politics in this country.
