Well, the Sergeant-at-Arms won’t be put into an awkward position. President Obama has agreed to address a joint session of Congress on September 8th, rather than September 7th. Of course, a debate amongst the GOP candidates at the Reagan Library had been scheduled that night. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney insisted the scheduling was entirely coincidental. Even if we are to give Carney the benefit of the doubt, the Obama Administration has only itself to blame for yet another unnecessary kerfuffle.
But now that Congress has agreed to hear President Obama speak about jobs does he have anything to offer? Because when Obama visits an employer to tout them as success stories due to his economic policies those companies have a tendency towards ending up in the red and turning the page to Chapter 11. Today, California-based Solyndra announced it was closing its doors and laying off 1,100 employees despite general federal subsidies. Allentown Metal Works suffered the same fate a year ago. Heck, all Obama need do is mention a business by name and he puts a hex on it as was the case with a restaurant in Toledo he claimed was an indirect beneficiary of the auto bailout.
I am sure that every CEO in the country is praying that Obama sees fit not to mention their company in his speech next week.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
