Team Obama Trips on its Shoelaces Before Fall Campaign Kickoff
It's been a long time since Congress was focused on what the American people need them to be focused on. I know that you're frustrated by that. I am, too.
-- President Obama in an email to political supporters asking them to watch his speech on the economy next week.
Maybe House Speaker John Boehner did President Obama a favor by rebuffing his request to give an economic speech to a joint session of Congress at the same time as a long-scheduled Republican presidential debate.
The most notable prior occasion when Obama sought to step on a Republican rivals moment in such a fashion was on May 21, 2009, when the president opted to preempt a speech by former Vice President Dick Cheney on terrorist detainee policy. Obama gave his talk, Cheney gave his and then a Democratically controlled Congress sided with the guy they call Darth Vader and refused to allow Obama to import the inmates on the Guantanamo Bay prisoner of war camp.
Obama had put his presidential prestige on the line quite considerable in those early days of his administration against the most reviled member of the hugely unpopular previous administration and got shown up.....

Hear the sizzle!
Completely self inflicted wound that only reinforces what an amateur Premier Hussein really is, and what hacks he has for staff.
I’m glad Boehner finally let ‘em drop and called the White House’s bluff on this one...
Taste my nightstick!!!
Last year for the House win, I drank a Slurpee (TM). A win next year, and I might just go to Ruth’s Chris...though if it’s a known lefty hang, I might not want to go to a place with sharp knives...just sayin...
ok, now i’m totally hungry!!! What is that?
ah, but Ruth herself was a conservative. Did a lot of advertising on Rush Limbaugh’s program.
The photo is Ruth’s Chris ribeye with extra butter, taken by a customer.
Way too thin for a ribeye. That thing needs to be at least 1.5” thick, seared on both sides on high heat for 4 minutes, and then covered with foil off of the grill for 10 minutes to firm up the inside.
The thing you posted looks like a flat tire.
I’ve only been there once, but I still dream about it. And not just the steak. The Brussel sprouts are UNBELIEVABLE!!
Here is what a real ribeye should look like.
That picture was taken by a customer. My one time there I was VERY impressed. They aren’t cheap, but you get what you pay for.
Ignorant, delusional buffoons are actually the driving force behind the sad state of the Country. It is not likely to get better any time soon.
Hey, Obama, did you ever stop to realize that *you* are as off base as Congress? Because your life will make a lot more sense once you sit back and realize that the reason you run into worsening problems at every turn is that ... you are making them worse.
Other than that, enjoy the arrogant, condescending schoolmaster routine. That's doing wonders for your popularity. I'd crank it up a notch. Really lay it on thick, you know? People just can't get enough of being talked down to by a colossal failure.
Yep the President is supposed to request from both the house and senate a joint session of Congress not announce when He will do it like he is King.He just does not grasp the concept of equal branches of government.
