This president, the Dear Leader, President Obama, is simply unfreakingbelievable.
For some reason, the Dear Leader, President Obama, feels that he needs to get congress together, force them to watch as he speechifies the latest, desperate attempt at kick-starting the moribund economy.
And today to much fanfare, the Dear Leader, President Obama, announced that he asked to speak before a joint session of congress. On Wednesday, September 7.
Oh, darn it! It is by sheer coinkidink that there is going to be a Republican presidential debate that same night. At the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. And two members of congress will be there to debate the other Republican presidential wannabes.
The two congressman are Michele Bachmann and Crazy Uncle Ron Paul.
And many Republican members of congress may not even be in Washington if possible. They may be at the debate.
But if one reads the Dear Leader, President Obama's letter to both Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid (D-Nevada), he pretty much sums up what I am certain will be a long winded speech. Here is the letter:
Dear Mr. Speaker: (Dear Mr. Leader:)
Our Nation faces unprecedented economic challenges, and millions of hardworking Americans continue to look for jobs. As I have traveled across our country this summer and spoken with our fellow Americans, I have heard a consistent message: Washington needs to put aside politics and start making decisions based on what is best for our country and not what is best for each of our parties in order to grow the economy and create jobs. We must answer this call.
Therefore, I respectfully request the opportunity to address a Joint Session of Congress on September 7, 2011, at 8:00 p.m. It is my intention to lay out a series of bipartisan proposals that the Congress can take immediately to continue to rebuild the American economy by strengthening small businesses, helping Americans get back to work, and putting more money in the paychecks of the Middle Class and working Americans, while still reducing our deficit and getting our fiscal house in order. It is our responsibility to find bipartisan solutions to help grow our economy, and if we are willing to put country before party, I am confident we can do just that.
Thank you for your consideration.
Your Dear Leader,
Barack Hussein Obama
OK, I kind of threw in the "Your Dear Leader" at the end. And yeah, I did add that Hussein thing too.
But seriously, why does the Dear Leader, President Obama, feel he has to have this big speech before a joint session of congress? Can't he just make some proposals and invite the congressional leadership over to the White House?
No, it is all part of the wicked narcissism of this president.
But a funny thing happened as this was asked for.
House Speaker John Boehner showed some testicles and fired off a respectful letter to the Dear Leader, President Obama, asking that the speech be put off one more day. That would move it to Thursday, September 8.
Now the propaganda minister, er presidential press secretary, Jay Carney, suggested that the Republican debate could be put off so that the Dear Leader, President Obama, can speechify to the joint congressional session.
Now lets keep in mind that this is a speech about a proposal. It is not a national emergency. It is not to ask congress to declare war. TEE HEE ! ! Don't forget Libya! TEE HEE ! !
Yet to hear the White House press flak, it is the most important presidential speech, evah!
So important that they decided to move it to the next day after all.
But the best news is that it is the opening game of the National Football League 2011 campaign!
Such schmucks, these people at this White House.
Sure, there was no attempt to try to steal the thunder of the Republican presidential debate scheduled for the same day and essentially time. And back to press flak Carney. He essentially said that the Republican debate can and should be rescheduled. And that the White House actually got the OK from Speaker Boehner's office. Only they never did.
Now the speech will be on the same night that the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints usher in the NFL season. Really, what are you going to watch.
Hey, Dear Leader, President Obama, you and your team ought to actually think things out before trying to pull another one over the people.
November, 2012 can not come soon enough!
