House Speaker John Boehner is either an oblivious prick or made a calculated political move designed to make president Barack Obama look bad this week.
Either way, he’s a real fucking cunt in our eyes.
Obama begrudgingly moved his long-anticipated speech on jobs and the economy from Sept. 7 to Sept. 8 at Boehner’s request. The Green Bay Packers open their season against the [intlink id=”234″ type=”category”]New Orleans Saints[/intlink] on Sept. 8.
Why did Boehner make this request? A fucking Republican presidential debate.
You know, for an election more than a year away. I’m sure everyone has been awaiting this debate with bated breath, unlike the start of the NFL season or the president’s speech.
Obama’s speech is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET. The game is scheduled for 8:30 ET.
At least one Wisconsin station has committed to interrupt the president’s speech for the Packers game if they overlap. I guess those of us in the rest of the country just have to hope Obama talks fast.
Fuck them both. And Fuck the bears.
Boehner isn’t president. The president can give his speech whenever the hell he wants to. You are as good at deflecting blame as the president is. Maybe you should be his press secretary.
No damn way this speech lasts more than 30 minutes. Therefore, no issue…
Actually he can’t give his speech whenever he wants. In order to address Congress the President needs to be invited by both houses of Congress.
Yeah, and the way that works is the President has his White House secretary contact Congress to let them know when they are inviting him. Good point.
And President Obama did contact Speaker Boehner’s office abut the date. They raised no objections. So he announced the speech for Wednesday and then the Speaker objected. First time ever Congress has not called a Joint Session when the President requested it.
Boehner requested Obama move the speech. He didn’t tell Obama to move it one fucking day up. Obama’s the one who scheduled the speech on Thursday. He could’ve picked Friday, Monday, Tuesday…maybe even next Wednesday if he’s feeling ambitious. None of this is on Boehner. Try again, moron.
Why doesn’t Obama speak on Tuesday. Day after labor day would be a great day to do that.
Unless the President doesn’t have his plan complete yet and needs a couple of more days, which would be very sad.
He wouldn’t have agreed to change it if the fucking Bears were playing.
Maybe we can reach across the aisle on this one to make note that this special year, 2011, is the one and maybe only chance EVER that the packers have an opportunity to beat the bears four, yes FOUR, times in a single calendar year.
Is this the new blame Bush spin?
I would not have watched the president lie on camera no matter when it was scheduled, so who the hell cares?
Obama fucked-up the economy and as a result he needs make yet another speech composed of deception and lies. It’s definitely Obama’s fault.
The economy was fucked up way before Obama was elected. With that being said…I agree if it was a Bears game it wouldn’t be an issue. I’m gonna be furious if the game gets interrupted.
Obama is the one causing this conflict! Lets vote his ass out! He should have kept his speech about an hour before the republican debate. That would have made for a better debate on the topic of job creation! America could get to hear the Obama approach and the republican approach. Obama needs to change the debate time to about 4:00PM central time.
So its Boehner’s fault that Obama is stupid enough to get screwed playing politics after Obama tried to play politics to interupt the GOP debate and lost.
Obama is a clueless… if he goes through with this he’s making his own “Heidi Game” moment.
If I may, sir, I believe it is you who are “a clueless.”
I fucking hate it when assholes say shit like “You sir are blah blah.” Do you think you are at a murder trial or in the movie “A few good men?” If I could say one thing to John Boehner it would be “You sir are a DICK.”
Boehner may be a dick but so is Obama. He obviously knew there was going to be a debate at that time. If you want real change (and someone whos not a dick) vote for Ron Paul!!
We won’t miss the game, the NFL is a powerful force to recon with “$$$$$$$$” The hell with politics, I want to watch Clay Mathews beat the birth mark off Drew Brees’ face! Go Pack!
Another intelligent, articulate post by our liberal, foul-mouthed blogger. After reading this brilliance, I’m voting for Obama going forward. Thank you so much.
What this really shows is that none of these professional fuckups from either party give a rat’s ass about anything other than their own deal. They all slop at the same trough.
Why doesn’t Obama just STFU? We all know the same crap is going to fly out of his mouth as the last 3 “jobs are my focus like a laser beam” speeches. He’s never created so much as a job at a lemonade stand, what does he know about creating jobs in a 14 Trillion dollar economy?
For what its worth I was told it had something to do with Security and having all the places checked for bombs etc. coming off a Holiday.
Obama just needs to shut the fuck up anyway , who cares what the fuck he has to say. go fuck your daddy obama according to the poem you wrote you and daddy just fuck each other in the ass
