Updates On Obama, Palin Speeches
Obama Accepts September 8th Date

— Ace

Breaking: Obama takes the offered Thursday date.

Very good (at least, it's interesting) piece on the Palin/O'Donnell confusion in Indianola from ABCNews.

It gets at a point I was just making to Russ From Winterset in emails: Many people find it charming and authentic that Palin is planning her campaign (or non-campaign) at a kitchen table with her husband and a very small number of confidantes, but that leads to a disorganized sort of disorganization.

But then it goes on to the O'Donnell matter:

According to rally organizers, O'Donnell reached out to the Tea Party of America and asked to speak. Crow agreed, and on Monday she was invited to speak. Crow said that almost immediately, the group received negative e-mails and at that point "panicked" and decided to rescind the invitation. (They added that O'Donnell's team was "less than truthful" about her current relationship with Palin, implying it was closer than it actually is.) On Tuesday, Crow said he decided to re-invite O'Donnell because "it was the right thing to do and we made a mistake." O'Donnell tweeted that she "humbly re-accepted the re-invitation" to speak.

But then that offer was rescinded. And Palin's team confirmed the former Alaska governor was indeed back on board.

Did anyone in this Tea Party of America think about asking Palin about that? Or are we operating on the Honor System here? (True Conservatives always tell the truth!)

Honestly. I don't get it. Naiete is not a virtue.

More on that:

Then on Wednesday, Palin's team "put the event on hold" and one of the things on Crow's list of "mistakes" that he needed to correct was informing O'Donnell that she was back off. Crow said that he "found out we in fact had been lied to by her [O'Donnell's] people and we didn't want to participate. I didn't want to expose the governor to that sort of stuff."

It seems O'Donnell stretched the current relationship she has with Palin, whose endorsement led to her beating Rep. Mike Castle in the 2010 Delaware senate race. One of the Tea Party of America organizers said it's just not the case: "I can tell you that the governor and Ms. O'Donnell have not spoken in a year, but that's none of my business."

O'Donnell did not return requests for comment left with her publicity firm.

It gets very difficult when so many of your political allies are swearing someone must be a wonderful, sweet woman, and yet the vibe you've always gotten is "shifty fame-hound."

Clarification: I am referring to O'Donnell. I've said it. I will keep on saying it. You cannot judge a candidate solely on ideology unless you have some master plan to insure that only your ideological sole-mates vote.

Meanwhile, Jim DeMint says he'll do what he can to block the Joint Address, in the Senate.

“The president should pick another night. I’m planning to watch the Republican primary debate … and the president should watch it, too,”

The iconic South Carolina conservative said. “If he has a jobs proposal, put it in writing, give us a cost estimate, and send it over. I want to read the bill, not listen to talking points off a TelePrompter. If he insists on playing politics by picking the night of the GOP debate, I will object to the session.”

A lone determined senator can tie the chamber in knots for days, and the House and Senate must both pass a concurrent resolution to allow for the president to speak to a joint session.

Mark Levin says he hears Obama may just do an Oval Office address if Congress balks. This could work for him. It was speculated the whole point of calling a Joint Session was to force networks to cover him. And they are getting tired of giving him very pricey prime-time slots to speak in. But a Joint Session is fairly rare and networks wouldn't balk for that kind of speech.

However, now that he's raised the stakes for this, it could be that a simple White House address would get covered by everyone.

All Obama really needs is a chair, a desk, a camera, and a pair of teleprompters (plus a back-up emergency teleprompter, of course).

That's unconfirmed, though; Levin isn't certain of it. The Right Scoop passed that tidbit along.

Boehner denies he ever agreed to the Wednesday date for the speech. The White House "notified" him they were seeking that time, then announced it to the press, before Boehner had answered.

11 Kaus had a point. If you have something big to say, you don't need a big venue. It will dominate the news either way. if you don't have something to say, a big venue will not help you, because it will come off as tiny. Eh, he still believes his old newspaper clippings.

14 I feel sorry for people who are emotionally invested in Palin as a candidate.  As for O'Donnell, she sure looks like a Dem plant.  The Tea Party only works until it gets organized, then it falls apart.

I'll disagree with this point, Ace.  Obama needs the joint session so the Democrats can give him standing O's every time he mentions more stimulus spending (green technology, high-speed rail) or increasing taxes (on only the wealthy, of course).  That kind of visual will allow the MFM to loudly proclaim 'and, the American people support more spending and higher taxes, but the Republicans apparently aren't listening'.  He needs the visual of someone cheering for and supporting his idiocy and, if he's sitting alone in the Oval Office, he's not going to get that visual.  JMO.

I remember Tony Blair's speech being pretty good.

Most of Reagan's best speeches were given from the Oval office or on-site(Berlin, Point Du Hoc, Goldwater "Time for Choosing Speech")

I think the Obama production team figures all that Barack has going for him is his speech making abilities, but I think most of the public is beginning to realize that they're essentially the same of sh^t

29 o'really thinks maxine and company, out there urging black Americans not to watch fox news, "the enemy", to turn them off, are really worried that black Americans might not vote in the numbers they did in the last election, might not vote at all and so they have to give them an enemy to vote against, the tea party and fox news.

That's so sad and transparent if it is true.  Would he really want to win his election with folks who weren't out there voting for him but against some fictitious enemy?

correct me if I'm wrong, he couldn't win with the black vote alone right?  I mean what blacks are 11% of the population and yet they hold more government jobs than any other group and he wants them to have more, as a bribe maybe?

I love DeMint's take, for all that I'd allow Barky his Thursday 8th joint session. 

"Send us the numbers - we don't need another speech" could be a campaign slogan.

It's a win-win if Obama insists on the 7th and things go down this way.  Boehner and the GOP offerred an olive branch, and a lone senator who's known to be to the Right of leadership does the Barack-blocking.

And, I'll tell ya.. I'm getting really freakin' tired of all the histrionics..  Palin and all the rest of the "players". All of this crap.. it's bullshit..  sideshow type crap.  Our country is going down the tubes and we got a SCOAMF running the country into the toilet and the candidates on our side are a bunch of pussies unwilling to put forward any real solutions lest they "show their hand".  Well, we can't wait another 2 years.  Maybe it's the whiskey talkin, but I'm just getting plain fed up.

Maybe it's Palin's cutesy manner..  We need serious people tackling serious problems.. And taking on Obama directly.   I wish she would just butt the fuck out.

80 Anybody still want to try defending Christine O'Donnell?  Late last year we had huge flame wars in the comments where not supporting her earned you instant RINO status.

Meh, that was mostly the Palinistas.  When Palin publicly endorsed her, they followed in lockstep to vigorously support O'Donnell.  Now that a COD appearance isn't in Palin's interests, she's persona non grata.

81 Technically, he may not need anything but a camera but he really wanted the joint session backdrop. He's been previewing this speech for weeks as a list of bi-partisan ideas and he wanted the visual of all those Republicans either sitting on their hands or applauding his motherhood and apple pie stuff. He lost this round just like he's been losing rounds since he managed to bribe his way to Obamacare.

101 I don't mind the timing, and I think Boener should have just let it slide.

It detracts from the debates?  Good.  They're for a primary, not a general election campaign.  The people who care about primaries will watch the debate (or a replay) anyhow, and those who'd prefer to watch Obama would have mainly just paid attention to the Republicans jabbing at each other.

I encourage Obama to give us many speeches as possible, give as many interviews as possible, appear on TV as much as possible, and generally draw as much attention to himself as possible.  President Out-of-Touch is his own worst enemy.  I say, give him the spotlight.

Think about this. He announces that he's going to have a big speech on the night of a primary debate. He starts a fight with Boehner and he either (1) moves the venue or date of the speech or (2) moves the GOP debate.

Then what?  NBC is televising the debate, so I guess they'll continue to bend over for him, but suppose they move the debate.  Then what?

He's just being an ass for the sake of being one.  That's the only goal here. Spite.

I think boehner went along with this.  I don't see any balls for boehner.

re: candidate "she," considering how poorly Hillary campaigned last time, she might be dumb enough to jump in.  However, her party still owns Barack's policies (which it supported), his shitty economy (which it created) and his base (which she can't defy any more than he can).

The Dems' problem doesn't originate so much with their candidates as their constituency*.  When AFSCME, the SEIU and the UAW run your party, you get economic policies like Obama's, and even assuming Hillary wanted to do something different, she wouldn't be allowed to.  Unless the economy rebounds markedly by mid-2012, whoever's running on "more of the same hope and change" will get mauled, regardless of whether the doofus or the harpy gets nominated.  And their platform's going to be more of the doubled-down same because the unions want it that way.

*You could argue that the Republicans more often have the opposite problem.

190 #168  I caught a clip from him the other day (radio) saying that there needs to be a moratorium on new regulations for business.  Also some other things like lowering capital gains.  Not normal dem stuff.

Then I remembered that he has a vendetta against Pelosi and the uber left because of him being prevented from running for speaker back in 2006.

And they also prevented him from running for mayor of New York,  or for Senator.

Hey,  he's authentically American black as opposed to Kenya-Hawaii, he's good on TV,  and he's guaranteed to clean Obama's clock in a debate.

And he is the ONLY potential challenger that won't piss off the black community.

That is my reasoning.  It may be wrong,  and it's only a theory.  But you have to admit it makes a little bit of sense.

They blew it and the Palin team is full of shit if they think they should be able to control the agenda for an event they aren't running or funding.

My understanding is that there are multiple things happening, not just her speech.  The organizer was talking about available slots.  Otherwise, wouldn't it be a Sarah PAC event and not just a Tea Party event? 

Is the purpose of the Tea Party to promote Sarah Palin or to move a political agenda forward?

NBC will not be showing his speech at all.  I mean its the NFL, and there is a set way that they do this.  The game starts at 8:30.  That means NBC is going to be starting coverage at the LATEST at 8:00.  And I really doubt Obama wanted a 7:00 address for his speech.  And they really can't have him as the lead in to the NFL because they will have to cut away from his address because he is going to start late like always and take longer than planned.

Thanks for the link!  The comments are fun too.  I loved this line from the article:

"A lot of the time he quote/unquote 'worked from home', which was sort of a shorthand - and people would say it sort of wryly - shorthand for not really doing much."

 

Heh!  Especially in light of the fact of Carney making that statement that he didn't think anyone would begrudge Obama the time he was taking off (this last vacation) to spend time with his daughters.  So when he's out there golfing, Obama is essentially "working from home."  Heh!

Ryan Lizza "Cleared" officially downgraded to "consulted." So someone at WH anonymously passed along inaccurate information to several journos. Nice.

NBC will not be showing his speech at all.  I mean its the NFL, and there is a set way that they do this.  The game starts at 8:30.  That means NBC is going to be starting coverage at the LATEST at 8:00.  And I really doubt Obama wanted a 7:00 address for his speech.  And they really can't have him as the lead in to the NFL because they will have to cut away from his address because he is going to start late like always and take longer than planned.

 

So essentially, we'll get Obama for the post-game wrap up!

We knew this.

 

I may doubt Boehner's backbone from time to time, but if he says "red" and Obama (or one of his lackeys) says "green" there's no doubt it's "red."

245 POTUS*

Pussy of the United States.

If that asswipe Onutless was going to take on the Repubs, he shoulda manned-up and stood his ground.  Once again, he lifted his skirts and flounced off.

Lucy van Pelt could kick his ass.  Hell, Frieda with the curly hair could kick his ass.  Frieda's curly fucking hair could kick his pussy little ass. 

Man, I hate that motherfucker.  Opussy, not Frieda.

VOTUS. 

I hear they do a lot of shopping at Fredrick's of Hollywood.  And you just KNOW it ain't for Moochelle...

I would laugh at his sorry pansy ass and not care, but there are brave men (and women) who stand guard over this country (thank you) who become more and more at risk every time this effeminate, neutered, pansy-ass, wussy, ugly, boring, stupid, cock-sucking, beat-off motherfucker looks like the chickenshit pussy he obviously is.

My apologies to pussies, pansy-asses, cocksuckers, chickenshits, wussies, little girls, vaginas, and those who are boring, stupid, and ugly, all of whom are smarter and more manly than the VOTUS.

Oh - and Obama is a Stuttering Clusterfuck of a Miserable Failure.

246 Oh, and why does Obama hate New Orleans?  If you ask me, pre-empting their season opener makes me feel the same way I did when George Bush opened the levies during Katrina.

I've been fortunate to see a lot of this country and I've yet to find a place I didn't like at least a little bit. Except Detroit.

Try being a southerner living in the NE or Midwest.  And I grew up military living everywhere.

257 @259  No kidding.  NYC is the only place, of the many I've lived, where upon introducing myself to a new acquaintance and informing them I am in the military, I frequently got the idea they felt pity for me.

They tolerate being treated like crap.  It's no surprise, I guess, as they're all dems anyway.

Had Bush's admin been caught red handed lying about some petty thing like this, they would make a big deal out of it.  This isn't the first time.  It's basically the only way Obama knows how to handle disputes with the GOP House.  Pretend to agree with them and leak the agreement.  I don't know why they keep doing it, though.  It didn't work for them even a single time, as far as I can tell, but I'm sure it's incredibly annoying.

I know 99% of folks will not be thinking about this on election day, so I guess it doesn't matter that it makes Obama look pretty weak.

260 Nice commentary. last thirty days I uncovered this internet site and desired to permit you be conscious that i’ve been gratified, heading via your site’s posts. I should certainly be signing equally as much as the RSS feed and can wait around for another post.

261 Yeah, the urban community will let Harold Ford Jr bump Obama off the ticket. I'm sure Ford's wife will help keep the base loyal to the party's new standard bearer.

262 Really handed BO a gift. Shouldn't have. Should have made BO go first, and then all of the candidates could have just ripped his plan in the debates, or not depending upon what he delivered. Now, I only hope that they ask for a summary of a jobs plan from the candidates at the debate, with some details included, so that we can see how well prepared they are and then we can compare those proposals and details to the BO "big" plan details, if any.

263 Haven't read through the comments yet, as I've been trying to uphold the whole AoS lifestyle of getting completely hammered tonight out n about. However, bitch (aka O'Donnel) has always seemed to be an attention whore, and not very good at it - good riddance. She remind's me of quite a few wa-who-rays that try to make a name for themselves, cuz that's all they got. As far as the SCOAMF goes, who really cares? That's the reason why he is the SCOAMF, because nobody really gives a shit what he says
