Speaker John Boehner has rejected Obama’s request to address a joint session of Congress on September 7th to discuss his jobs plan. Boehner has asked that Obama consider the following night instead.

According to Politico, Boehner said in a letter to Obama that Sept. 8th would be better “so we can ensure there will be no parliamentary or logistical impediments that might detract from your remarks.”

It is important to note that on September 7, the GOP Presidential candidates will have a debate that is sponsored by NBC and Politico that will air on MSNBC. NBC and Politico announced earlier today that they would air the debate and not show the address to Congress.

In addition, the Republicans should laugh maniacally whenever he mentions spending.

Obama should golf on Sept 7, then address Congress on the 8th. Winning.

Good move, Mr. Speaker.

The skid mark will move forward with his pointless, vaccuous tripefest in a third grade-level attempt at disrupting the debate, but who cares?
