Kudos to Speaker John Boehner for his timely and appropriate response to a juvenile stunt pulled by the Obama White House. That the short notice demand for a Joint Session of Congress was anything other than junior high level one-upmanship was dispelled today when the zero gravity press secretary, Jay Carney, compared the scheduled GOP debate at the Reagan Library with a “wildlife show.”
Speaker Boehner’s response can be found here. In essence it says we can’t do it Wednesday because we won’t be in session until 6:30 pm. We’ll see you some time Thursday.
