Skip to comments.Senate jam: DeMint also vows to block Obama speech
Posted on 08/31/2011 5:31:33 PM PDT by maggief
Sen. Jim DeMint vowed Wednesday to try to block President Barack Obama from addressing a joint session of Congress on the same day as a Republican presidential debate next week.
Obama could learn something from the GOP, DeMint reasoned, in adding his voice and his vote to a growing chorus of Republican objections.
The president should pick another night. Im planning to watch the Republican primary debate and the president should watch it, too,
The iconic South Carolina conservative said. If he has a jobs proposal, put it in writing, give us a cost estimate, and send it over. I want to read the bill, not listen to talking points off a TelePrompter. If he insists on playing politics by picking the night of the GOP debate, I will object to the session.

This President is so weak at this point, only John McLame would support him. I fully expect McLame to start bashing Boehner and DeMint for not letting King Barry hold court by tomorrow.
Because the Obozo wants to make a campaign speech in a forum where he'll get applause from the brain-dead dems. He wants to look presidential by having congress sitting at his feet while he blathers on about his "jobs" plan, with Bite Me popping up to cheerlead the applause every few seconds. Plus, nobody listens to his teleprompter cr*p from the WH anymore.
In most mass movements throughout history, the people are divided roughly into 30% groupings. 30% strongly support, 30% strongly oppose, and 30% don’t care.
Oh, if we could only get 30% of those who are supposedly for America to stand up against the leftists like DeMint has done, we might have a fighting chance of saving our republic.
I hate that the "aids" are running the country. No one elected them, and we don't even know who they are.
Can't Obama and Boehner just pick up the phone and do the work themselves?
LMOA!! Listen to talking points from TOTUS! Now that’s funny.
Obama will have to give his campaign speech the next night. What is he going to argue - the NFL is important but the American democratic process is not?
Why doesnt he just give the speech from the WH?”
Because no one would listen. At least this way he is assured of some kind of an audience. I think he should just post it on the internet and then go vacation in Vermont.
Great line ... should have worked it into the thread header.
I can’t bet against that
America is the greatest bla bla bla
more stimulus is needed bla bla bla
Shovel ready projects bla bla bla
Green Jobs bla bla bla
extend payroll tax break bla bla bla
win the future bla bla bla
shared sacrifice bla bla bla
those earning more than $250,000 bla bla bla
random tea party dig
Put Americas back to work bla bla bla
best days are ahead bla bla bla
God bless America, goodnight.
There, I saved everyones time.
Do you really want to put "Obama" and "work" in the same sentence? It's like putting mustard on ice cream.
I'm wearing my kevlar. ;)
Recall when we heard the “You lie” line at a joint session of Congress, it’s because BrackBrack WAS lying and smearing his critics.
He can go pound sand and pay for his OWN political advertising broadcasts.
He’s the best!
You must be the second coming of Nostradamus. It’s uncanny.
Barack Obama himself is attempting “block speech” by counterprogramming the GOP Presidential Debate.
Free speech for “me” but not for “thee”.
Screw this tinpot dictator.
