Source: “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.”
Ohhhhh, that Obama thinks he’s so clever, doesn’t he? Obama thinks this kind of a dick move is the real job of being President. These stupid, childish games he plays, it’s the only thing he seems to enjoy.
Can you hear Chris Matthews now? Howard Fineman, let me go to you first, is this a masterstroke by the most brilliant political tactician we’ve ever seen? He’s saying to the American people, ‘Make up your mind’, right? ‘You can listen to me or you can watch those crazy Republicans: what’s it going to be?’ In other words, he’s giving the American people an ultimatum. I love it. I think it’s shear brilliance, by this man. It’s gutsy. It’s courageous. I love it. Greatest political move we’ve ever seen, Howard Fineman?
Since this joint session business is at Boehner’s discretion, he should tell Obama to go fly a kite. When was the last time Obama had a speech that had ratings? It’s been a steady, progressive decline ever since the first one three years ago. No one likes watching Obama on TV anymore. Even his supporters don’t. He’s not going to say anything new or interesting. He’ll rebuke Republicans for not caring about Americans and he’ll ask for more money. But the cat’s out of the bag. Obama couldn’t convince a narcoleptic to take a nap. He’s impotent.
Meanwhile…that Republican debate in California is being hosted by Brian Williams. Translation: if you thought the CNN debate with John “uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh” King sucked, it won’t get any better with Williams’ weird weather anchor routine. More horrible questions, more attempts to brand Bachmann and Perry troglodytes. True/false questions. Questions about their favorite episode of Matlock. Efforts to drive a wedge between the GOP and the Tea Party (because leftist Brian Williams cares so much about the fissures in the Republican party, right?). With that in mind, why would Obama want to interrupt Brian Williams from performing a hatchet job?
Why does Obama need all this time to come up with a jobs plan? He’s like the kid who didn’t do his homework and is coming up with every possible explanation…Next week, teach! I swear…I got it, you’ll love it! I just need to edit it one more time..I’m almost done with it, just another tweak..I promise the week after next…A bit of a delay due to the Christmas vacation. I’ll have it on your desk in 2 weeks!…
