Coincidences on the Presidential Political Level Do Not Exist

Well said by the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza in regard to the timing of President Obama’s requested time for his jobs speech to be before a joint session of Congress next week…a time which would be directly coinciding with the next GOP Presidential Debate from the Reagan Library.

Admittedly, a part of me wouldn’t mind if the speech and the GOP Presidential debate went back-to-back.  It’d be either the longest opposition party response to a Presidential address in the history of the country or the night we find out if the Obama White House political shop is full of geniuses or complete boobs.

UPDATE: Scheduling conflict avoided. The President is moving his speech to September 8th.

Now he only has the NFL Opener between the Saints and the Packers to deal with.  (America will probably go with the football over the politics.)

President Barack Obama has agreed to move his scheduled special address to a joint session of Congress from September 7 to September 8, after consultations with House Speaker John Boehner, the White House said Wednesday night.

For those saying Speaker Boehner is being unreasonable here, do recall that in any Congressional address, the President sits in front of the Speaker and the Senate President Pro Tempe.  It is a sign of who’s in charge of the building.

Like any other household, the House of Representatives doesn’t like to deal with uninvited guests.
