House GOP: Approval Of Special Olympics Torch Run Trumps Obama Address

Post by Guest on Fri Sep 02, 2011 6:12 pm

It became clearer today why John Boehner this week became the first U.S. House Speaker in the nation's history to turn down a president's request to address a joint session of Congress.

The House has pressing business Wednesday evening, when President Obama asked to speak to members of Congress about his plans to goose the stagnant jobs market.

Pressing, as in:

Considering the extension of the "Generalized System of Preferences."

Contemplating the Civilian Service Recognition Act of 2011.

And authorizing use of the Capitol grounds for a Special Olympics torch run.

At least that's what's listed on next week's House agenda released this afternoon by Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia.

The agenda wouldn't, of course, mention the GOP presidential debate that's also scheduled Wednesday.

A debate that's fourteen months before the election. Yes, it's very necessary. (please hear my sarcasm).
