  •  Seriously? (10+ / 0-)

    Working people at dinnertime probobly care more about hearing their president talk about JOBS than a pre-primary GOP debate that maybe 2% of the country even watches.

    He chose this date because it is the first day congress is back. The GOP chose that night to have their debate for whatever reason, that's their problem.

    Will work for food
    Will die for oil
    Will fight for power and to the rich go the spoils
    The millionaires get to pay less tax
    The working poor get to fall through the cracks

    •  I suggest that the sound bites over dinner time (0+ / 0-)

      will exclude reasoning.  What people will hear is what I just heard on the radio, President schedules speech at the same time as Republican debate, plus pundit verbiage about the ensuing pissing contest of how to resolve the scheduling...
