As you all Obama supporters, and non-Obama supporters know by now, President is schedule to address the nation next Wednesday to layout his Jobs Plan in front of a Joint Session of Congress. But the problem is, its the same time and date as the Republican debate, which will be Rick Perry's first. So there's a little bit of tension of this issue. Earlier today, President Obama requested John Boehner permission to address US in the Congress:
"I respectfully request the opportunity to address a Joint Session of Congress on September 7, 2011, at 8 PM. It is my intention to layout series of bipartisan proposals that the Congress can take immediately to continue to rebuild the American economy by strengthening small business , helping Americans to get back to work, and putting more money in the paychecks of the Middle Class and working Americans, while still reducing our deflect and getting our fiscal house in order."
President Barack Obama made this letter public before John Boehner could even respond. John Boehner allowed the President to make his address the following day - Thursday. Technically the President of the United States cannot address a Joint Session OF Congress whenever he wants. But public denial, as such, is unprecedented.
