11. I don't think the GOP looks childish because of this.
That debate has probably been scheduled for a long time.

It's a version of the "accept the first invitation you receive" rule. The GOP booked America that night and it's odd that the Administration would schedule a conflicting event without good reason.

  - Perhaps that's why they did this. nt.  Hosnon   Aug-31-11 09:12 PM   #17 
  - Nothing is gained. Obama wanted a Joint Session. Boehner refused to approve it.  Magister Ludi   Aug-31-11 09:04 PM   #9

        - A pile of lies does not equal one single truth  Magister Ludi   Aug-31-11 09:16 PM   #19 
           - I try my best not to be partisan when reason requires.  Hosnon   Aug-31-11 09:18 PM   #21 
  - Actually, the news tomorrow will be that Obama bowed to Bohener.  kelly1mm   Aug-31-11 10:28 PM   #28 
  - Administration tried to play chicken. And lost... nt  Clear Blue Sky   Aug-31-11 09:07 PM   #10

  - didn't you hear frenchie? moving the speech has doomed his reelection chances!  dionysus   Sep-01-11 08:38 AM   #40 
  - Ok - this is the best I can think (since folks have pointed out that the NFL begins Thursday):  Hosnon   Aug-31-11 09:10 PM   #15 
  - The game won't be interrupted.  godai   Aug-31-11 09:15 PM   #18 
     - Hmm - well it'd have a similar, albeit diminished, effect.  Hosnon   Aug-31-11 09:16 PM   #20 
        - No, they'll watch ESPN pre-game until game time.  godai   Aug-31-11 09:22 PM   #22

  - What a massive fuckup. Did they have any plan for if the GOPers were obstinate?  Mayberry Machiavelli   Aug-31-11 09:53 PM   #25 
  - Have no f'ing clue. Doesn't look like the WH does, either.  blkmusclmachine   Aug-31-11 10:01 PM   #26 
  - According to those 'in the know' ...  GeorgeGist   Aug-31-11 10:17 PM   #27 
  - One of two things.  Beacool   Aug-31-11 10:36 PM   #29 
  - The second explanation doesn't make any sense, though...  Hippo_Tron   Aug-31-11 11:57 PM   #33 
  - Then they are a bunch of incompetents.  Beacool   Sep-01-11 12:09 AM   #34 
     - This isn't incompetence...  Hippo_Tron   Sep-01-11 12:15 AM   #36 
  - Or, Wrong and Wrong (again!)  CakeGrrl   Sep-01-11 12:11 AM   #35 
     - I doubt anyone outside of the MSM/blogger bubbles has even heard about this  Hippo_Tron   Sep-01-11 12:17 AM   #37 
     - I think that's overreaching.  Beacool   Sep-01-11 09:20 AM   #42
