Boehner Says "No Thanks. Mr. President. Let's Do Your Silly Speech On Thursday Instead"

My respect for John Boehner just went up immeasurably.  Obama announced plans for a silly jobs speech to a joint session of Congress at the same time as the GOP CA debate.  What a lot of people on the leftt apparently don't know is the president only appears before Congress if the Speaker invites him. He has no power to order Congress to listen to him.

Speaker Boehner, seeing the obvious petty political move by Obama, politely declined and suggested the following night instead.  This has the left (and probably the White House) in a rage.  Good times.

Who says a summer congressional recess has to be boring?

What's funny is the left is now demanding all sorts of deference to Obama's wishes that they never would have accorded  Pres. Bush.

This isn't over.
