Not good enough. His address should be boycotted or attendees should stand with their backs to him. Or else what's been gained?

All the new date means is Zero won't be embarrassed by the debate's higher ratings.

Obama Agrees to Address Congress on Sept. 8 By George E. Condon Jr.
Updated: August 31, 2011 | 9:26 p.m.
August 31, 2011 | 1:21 p.m.

President Obama agreed to address a joint session of Congress next Thursday, at the invitation of House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, the White House announced late Wednesday.

But Thursday was not Obama’s first choice—he originally asked to address Congress on Wednesday night, Sept. 7. A month after they went toe-to-toe over the nation’s debt, Obama and Boehner slugged it out on Wednesday over the calendar and the president’s desire to give a speech to Congress. http://www.nationaljournal.com/obama-agrees-to-address-congress-on-sept-8-20110831

How about having him be the guest speaker during third quarter. Anything is better than Jerry Jones (and I am a Cowboys fan). Oy.

The Packers are Obama’s team; the Rams and Browns are close seconds. And of course, the Lions.
