Yeah, the president scheduling a speech before a joint session of congress is a political power play but the republican speaker of the house having a hissy fit and telling the president to reschedule, something that has never been done before, that was proper statesmanship, right?

I'm pretty sure the president trying to schedule a speech before a joint session of congress does not fall under the separation of powers. He sent a letter to the speaker of the house (the person who schedules the agenda for congress) and requested some time.

Also, he's the fucking president whether you like him or not. Imagine Nancy Pelosi telling Bush to fuck off when he requested some time to speak before congress. lol

No one is crying. It's just sad that a fat drug addict talk show freak apparently runs the republican party. I guess it shouldn't be too surprising though, it's not like the tea party retards can think for themselves.
