Hey, did you hear that the Chicago Jeezus decided to call the entire Congress to witness his mad TOTUS reading skillz on the same day as the Republican debate was scheduled MONTHS in advance.
Boehner's spokesman added in a statement that the White House ignored protocol by not first requesting a date from the speaker's office.
"It's unfortunate the White House ignored decades -- if not centuries -- of the protocol of working out a mutually agreeable date and time before making any public announcement," Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said.
A senior House Democratic aide called Boehner's office "childish" for asking the president to reschedule.
"The childish behavior coming out of the speaker's office today is truly historic," the aide said. "It is unprecedented to reject the date that a president wants to address a joint session of the Congress."
The White House had insisted the timing was coincidental. Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters there were many scheduling "considerations" and suggested the president has no interest in detracting from the debate viewership.
He said the administration would "welcome" a decision by debate hosts to "adjust the timing of their debate so that it didn't conflict."
But Carney downplayed the debate as one of many on the political calendar.
That's right Opie, just like there are waaayyyy to many warmed over
I wonder which the MSM will show in it's entirety if they're on at the same time??????
