On the Timing of the Jobs Address

President Obama will address a Joint Session of Congress tonight (Thursday, Sept. 8th) regarding his job stimulus plan. He had originally requested to do so last night (Wednesday, Sept. 7th), but House Speaker John Boehner asked him to change the plan, and he agreed to it.

Mr. President: Please allow me to show you what the correct response should have been.

Rep. Boehner:

I have instructed the Secret Service to secure the room by 6:30pm on Wednesday, Sept. 7. I will begin speaking at 7:05pm.

You can either (1) be there, or (2) miss it.

Sincerely,

Barack H. Obama
President of the United States
