  •  Evening, joe (13+ / 0-)

    and good people.

    I just heard that the meeting Obama scheduled with the House Dems is causing the Grayson hearing to be rescheduled. So basically, he stepped on it.  It was scheduled for 9:30am eastern.  Obama then came in and scheduled his for 10:10am eastern.

    I just noticed on Twitter that Keith Alexander is scheduled to give a keynote at 9am pacific/noon eastern at the BlackHat hackers conference on the same day.  So it occurred to me: Did that have anything to do with Obama deciding to step on the Grayson hearing?

    Alexander would be giving his speech during the Grayson hearing, presumably, or right after it ended.  Was he so uncomfortable with that that he asked the president to get the hearing rescheduled?  Or did Obama's meeting with the House Dems have nothing to do with Grayson's hearing at all?  There was also some speculation that Alexander would back out of the keynote speech, but I tend to doubt that.  However, I do think he may decide to prescreen the questions in the Q&A or decide not to do a Q&A.
