One of driving forces behind my interest in current events and politics is the fact you should question nearly every media report you read or see. It astounds me continuously how the press can take a story and present it in such a fashion that you can’t help but question the validity of any of it!
The latest example is the row between the White House and Speaker Boehner over the President’s request to deliver a speech to a joint session of Congress next week. I DO believe the White House decided to announce the President’s intention BEFORE the formal request to the Speaker’s office. That in itself sounds like par for the course behavior for Mr. Obama. With date rescheduled from September 7 to September 8, per the formal response to the President, the media hype is all about the conflict. Obama proceeded on the notion to upstage the Republican presidential contenders debate next Wednesday (another point I could DEFINITELY believe!)…..Others contend the urgency of our economic situation was what was behind the entire mess. The fact that THIS President can offer NOTHING of substance aside, we have competing stories..with conflicting points of view….
So…take your pick….All I know is it is yet further proof of the classless, petulant attitude put forth by this chief executive. President Obama’s time in office is riddled with such childishness…and, no doubt, it will continue!
