They said in the article they are going to intergrate the speech into the debate and have the candidates respond in real time to the address. That should be a GOOD thing...no canned answers...we will get to see their honest beliefs...which should be entertaining.


lol brilliant!

"Why should the Republicans grant the president a joint session of Congress to make a political campaign speech, on any date? Why should the Republicans handcuff themselves that way?"

Because we all know that this is nothing but a glorified campaign speech. If it was so important of a speech, shouldn't he have made it BEFORE he went on (another) vacation?


Right...I guess we should just cancel the next State of the Union as well...because it's just going to be a "glorified campaign speech".




Let Obama do his job...and stop crying about it. That's my solution.

Jobs Crisis > GOP Debate


We have been in a jobs crisis since this fool took over. He had total control of Congress and didn't do squat to help.
Are the Shovel ready jobs finally ready that Obama laughed off? Were did all the stimulus money go?Is he just going to spew that people need to pay more money? how's the summer of recovery working out?

State of the Union is mandated by the Constitution.

Let Obama do his job? If he was doing his job there would be no need for the speech in the first place.

UPDATE: 5:04 p.m. -- Boehner's response to Obama's request may be unprecedented. The Senate Historical Office said it knows of no instance when Congress has refused a president permission to address a Joint Session of Congress.



To be fair and correct Speaker Boehner did not REFUSE the President permission to address a Joint Session of Congress - that is "spin". He said that the day requested will not work for logistical and security related reasons. You can call that political gamesmanship but it is no more or less than the President asking for a time that directly conflicts with a major opposition party event. Both sides play the game.

Id rather hear the debate than the ongoing lies of Obama. All he does is lie and tell the people what he thinks they want to hear. He will promise that his plan will get the job market booming again...yada..yada.yada...and the sheeple will believe him, then they will go back to sleep until next year when the job market is even worse.

Hope and Change? Summer of Recovery? Yea it all sounds good, but it is nothing but words, words that are nothing but lies....Its really disgusting...

I've been waiting for three years for him to start doing his job, In my opinion hes out of time and I could care less what he says anymore unless its has to do with his resignation. I will be watching the debate which I'm sure will be infinitely better than whatever crap rhetoric Barry is going to drivel. I would suggest everyone else do the same.

So you want to forgo hearing one set of lies....to simply tune in to hear a bunch of other ones?


I'd rather watch paint dry instead of watching Obama stutter and lie or watching a bunch of lunatics debate about their love for jesus christ, lie about what they'd do a president, their hatred of non whites, and their allegiance to the corporate elite that fund their campaigns.

Yeah, what you said.
Because at least paint CHANGES when it's drying. (Actually pretty fascinating!)
