... Gawker said this:
"...The most gratuitously -- and joyously! -- dickish move of his presidency."
"The contrast the White House is hoping to force is between a sitting incumbent spending his time trying to find solutions to the big problems facing the country and a motley crew of Republicans fighting amongst themselves as they all try to run to the extreme ideological right."
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) wrote President Obama to ask if he would address a joint session of Congress next Thursday, September 8 -- the opening night for the National Football League.
So Boehner lied, what a surprise.
Meanwhile, as all of these games are being played out, Americans are out of work, need decent health care, are trying to recover from being slammed by earthquakes and hurricanes, and could use a dose of constructive legislation from their representatives.
In other news, President Obama asked The Boehner to move his drinking hours to after his term is up.
