His Majesty is Not Amused

Seems like His Majesty, Barry I, isn’t all that happy his speech on jobs was postponed – from Politico:

It seemed like a trivial matter: On Wednesday, House Republicans forced the president to delay his speech to a joint session of Congress by one day.

Who cares? The White House cares. Very much.

“It is a big deal that the House said ‘no’ to the president from our end,” a White House source with intimate knowledge of what took place between the House and the president told me Thursday. “This confirms what we all know: They will do anything in the House to muck us up.”

On Wednesday, the White House staff did not know exactly what President Barack Obama was going to say in his major jobs speech, but it knew exactly where and when he was going to say it…

This is a sign of a floundering White House…they are not only mad about something as trivial as this, but they are letting people know they are mad.  The White House cooked up a plan and, darn it, Congress didn’t meekly go along with it!  The nerve!

Leaving aside the fact that the Congress is not at the beck and call of the President, it speaks volumes about the Obama Administration that they didn’t clear the date in advance with Speaker Boehner.  This shows that they just presume that obedience is automatic…that at the end of the day everyone will defer to The One.  While Obama has lost his luster with the public, it seems that for himself and his closest advisers, the rules of 2008 still apply…and when it is time for the Prophet to speak, everyone else is supposed to tremble and obey.

I’ve got one piece of advice to Obama and his crew – get used to this.  Its not that we disrespect the office of the President, but that we’re not about to follow the Obama script.  Obama is one player among many – certainly an important piece of the puzzle, but in no way does he rule the roost.  And, as an aside, if Obama and his cronies hadn’t so continually insulted us and lied about us, things would be different.

    It isn’t so much that the delay happened but that it happened publicly which is the fault of the White House. These negotiations between the White House and the full house of Congress are standard and normally held behind the scenes but Obama thought that by making the request and then making it public before the majority leader could respond was showing who was in command. Bad move for the little boy who wants to be King.

    Bitch slapped like he deserved

      Pretty much – and the doubles down on the error by making it public that he’s upset. Should have just graciously thanked the Speaker and had done with it…a Presidency in collapse…

    Poor widdle baby Obama, can’t get his way, tries to upstage the Republican debate that was scheduled months ago. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!

    even james carville said he’d rather watch the republican debate than the president’s speech. so the GOP did zerobama a favor. he also said that if a republican president did the same thing that zerobama tried he’d have a big problem with it.

    when carville doesn’t even try to spin this in your favor…man that’s bad. alan colmes could try to spin it though…but he’s nuttier than a fruit cake.
