If there is any doubt that Washington DC is out of touch with reality and just a petty as it so come look no further than the fight about the President's speech about jobs.
First..why did it take that long to come up with a jobs plan?
Then...knowing the republican debate was going to take place the same night of his jobs speech he went ahead and scheduled it.
Then...all heck broke loose about the timing.
Remember..the president has to be invited to come and address Congress.
John Boehner shot back it was a bad time and how about some other night?
After a dustup the president backs down and schedules his speech for the same night as the NFL game between the world champion Packers and New Orleans Saints.
Well..that's a problem.
But..this whole thing is dumb and it shows the tone deafness of everyone in DC.
First of all...
This is not 1971,.
We have the little thingies called dvrs and tivos.
Some of you out there may even still be recording on vhs tapes.
Deal is...if you are interested in the republican debate you'll watch that.
If you really want to hear what the President says...record it and watch it later..or visa versa.
Or, just watch the President.
Did the president means to schedule his speech to draw attention from republicans?
You bet he did.
That date was set in stone for a long time.
If I were John boehner I would have told the President to go ahead.
We'll catch up with you later...because chances are...what you are going to say..we've heard before..spend more money.
All this is why people are really fed up with politics.
High school with money.
That's my point of view what's yours?
