    I totally agree with Maxes assessment that Obama was using the bully pulpit, and looking quite childish to boot. Then Obama and his propagandists try to convince the people that they had no idea there was the GOP debate on the same night. That makes them shown to be incompetent liars as well as out of touch with the reality of just how informed the citizenry has become recently.

    As far as the TIVO bit is concerned, while it is true most political junkies and concerned citizens might go that route, this appears to be a struggle for the primetime limelight, and we all know that Obama considers himself some kind of Hollywood star that deserves top billing, anyone elses schedule be damned
    .Personally, I feel I,ve got a very,very good understanding of Obama’s core ideology (Marxist/Socialist/Radical Leftist) and no teleprompter propaganda will ever make me ignore what he has done to America in 2 1/2 short years, period. I,m way too old to be spending my time listening to his tired B/S.

      DJ,
      The fact Obama rolled over so easily on this (moving to Thursday night) tells me his advisors are the rabid dogs pushing for more controversy. Carney’s arrogant press corps comment proves Obama wasn’t firm on the date, his advisors were, and they succeeded brilliantly in embarrassing their boss.

      It’s arrogant actions like this that only fuel the anti-Obama fever spreading around the country.

    To my knowledge, there is no requirement for Reps. Bachmann or Paul to attend the joint session.

    I can’t imagine there being a whole bunch of negative feedback if they don’t vote on a resolution to allow the President to interrupt the GOP debate.

    Now, Obama will be able to say that they didn’t care enough to hear his speech in-person, but seriously.. we’ll have the text 30 mins before he goes out there and so will they.

      By definition, a Joint Session is both houses, comprised of all members. Their attendance is a matter of obligation, unless extenuating circumstances prevent it. So, yes, it’s a judgement call, and I’m sure Speaker Boehner would allow Bachmann and Paul to miss it. It just shows bullying by our President, making him look even less presidential, so in the end it’s a win-win for republicans.

      Just saw Boehner’s reply to Obama asking he move it to the 8th. I wonder what the divider-in-chief will do in response. Should be fun to watch.

    Unfortunately, this is much bigger than a simple DVR or TIVO viewership issue. Our President has chosen bully-politics, knowing full well that republican candidate members of congress will have to drop out of the debate to attend a Joint Session. How immature.

    One more reason to vote “NOBAMA” 2012.
