White House Speech To Clash With NFL Regular Season Opener?

Uh oh, first the President unemployment speech was stepping on potential Republican nominee’s toes, now Obama’s got the NFL by the tail.


Boehner, R-Ohio, balked at the president’s original request to appear before Congress to discuss the nation’s chronic unemployment problem on Wednesday, Sept. 7. That’s the same day as a Republican presidential debate in Simi Valley, Calif.

Obama agreed to move his speech to Thursday, Sept. 8, which happens to coincide with the opening game of the NFL regular season, a prime time contest between the New Orleans Saints and the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers from Lambeau Field.

How about we move it up to Tuesday? I suppose no matter what happens — there’s going to be an issue here.
