President Obama will address a Joint Session of Congress on Sept. 8 to lay out his plan for jobs and the economy, the White House announced late Wednesday night.
The date is one day later than the day Mr. Obama had requested earlier Wednesday because the original date conflicted with an all-important debate of Republican presidential candidates at the Reagan Library in California to be carried on MSNBC.
House Speaker John Boehner objected to Mr. Obama’s original date suggesting that Obama come to Capitol Hill on Thursday night, a day later and Mr. Obama being the spineless jellyfish he is, agreed to Boehner’s request.
Got that? The House Speaker is now President Obama’s puppet master. Boehner tells Obama to jump and Obama asks, “How high, Massa John.” No wonder Boehner was able to confidently proclaim after the recent budget battle, “We got 98% of what we wanted from this president.”
Seriously folks, I have never in my life seen a more namby pamby, milquetoast excuse for a Commander in Chief. The unbearable spectacle of President Obama bowing to the Republican House Speaker has become too painful to watch.
I have lost all respect for Barack Obama. He is weak and lacks the necessary backbone and character to be president. In politics, leadership is rewarded and weakness is punished.
Mr. Obama will pay the ultimate price in the 2012 general election.
