President Obama To Play Hardball With Congress Over Jobs Program

August 31, 2011

This is a great starting idea for President Obama as he prepares the nation for ideas about moving the economy forward.

Go to the lion’s den and make all aware who the nation needs to hold responsible for inaction.

President Barack Obama has sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid requesting the opportunity to lay out his jobs plan before a joint session of Congress at 8 p.m. ET on September 7. 

“It is my intention to lay out a series of bipartisan proposals that the Congress can take immediately to continue to rebuild the American economy by strengthening small businesses, helping Americans get back to work, and putting more money in the paychecks of the Middle Class and working Americans, while still reducing our deficit and getting our fiscal house in order,” the president wrote. “It is our responsibility to find bipartisan solutions to help grow our economy, and if we are willing to put country before party, I am confident we can do just that.”

    yeah, hardball, he already caved on the night. He shoulda told Boner if Wednesday’s not good for him, he’d just speak to the Senate. Maybe he’ll include school uniforms and midnight basketball (a la Bill Clinton) in his speech, that should be good for a few jobs. At this point it’s getting to look irrelevant if Obama is re-elected. Keeping a Senate majority is important. Then they can just refuse to approve any appointees for 4 years for Mitt or Rick like the Repugs have done for Obama.
