President Obama Asks Angryman For A Meeting! Angryman Tells Him NO!??????
“No Mr. President. We won’t be able to have you over tomorrow night. You see; we have this little family discussion group tomorrow night and it’s been scheduled for a while. Couldn’t you and Mrs. Obama stop by the next night? We could squeeze you in then for that little chat you wanted to have with us.”
Yes; Yes. I know that would be my answer to the chief executive of our Nation. How about you? No? You say that it would be disrespectful?
Well, perhaps you’re right. Perhaps I have an obligation to drop what I’m doing and listen to what the President has to say at anytime of the day or night.
Not that I am required to get up and watch a televised speech in the middle of the night. But if President Barak Obama or any other President called me and said that he wanted to stop by to talk to my whole family, what would I not drop to accommodate him? Probably not many things I’m thinking.
I’m also thinking that I would be making the correct and appropriate choice. That to do otherwise would be a show of the worst kind of disrespect. Needless, humiliating disrespect. A touch humiliating for that President; but far more humiliating for you and your friends and family.
As a matter of fact; I would not blame you if you became angry and accusatory and berated me publicly for my audacity and lack of appreciation.
Or, if I were a political adversary of the particular President in question I would completely understand if you felt that I was being disrespectful to my President just for the purpose of embarrassing and belittling him in front of the whole nation. Or if you felt that I was shamelessly treating The President of the United States of America like a lackey or a young school boy of no account.
If I truly had a good reason to postpone a Presidential visit personally requested by the President; I would still understand if you felt that I should handle it privately, say, over the phone instead of in a press release bragging about my poor manners and arrogant, narcissistic, elitist attitude.
Now that I think about it you would be completely justified in demanding that I publically apologize for my presumption and pompousness.
You might feel that my behavior was made even more abhorrent if that President; ignoring the intended slight; graciously assented to my wishes.
And if you did feel that way about my actions you might decide to loudly complain to your Senator or Congressman; even if you were of the same political opinion as me.
Yes that is what we could expect you to do if I was so rude and arrogant and disrespectful…………………………………………………………………………………
Obama Changes Speech Date After Dust-Up With GOP
By Tamara Keith-NPR
The White House announced that Obama would address a joint session of Congress next Wednesday. But House Speaker John Boehner sent the president a letter recommending that he pick a different night to give his speech.
“There’s a kind of etiquette traditionally that says to leaders of Congress, it’s a good thing to defer to the president,” says Ross Baker, a professor of political science at Rutgers University. “He is the person elected by all of the people. And if he wants to speak at a particular time, he really should have that opportunity.”
