Just when you didn't think it could get any more petty

Pelosi Peeved Republicans Opt Out of Rebuttal to Obama Speech


Published September 07, 2011 | FoxNews.com

Republicans have decided they're not going to give a rebuttal to President Obama's jobs speech later this week, a decision House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi took as a high affront to the White House.

At least three GOP lawmakers also have announced they're not going to show up for the presidential address. House Speaker John Boehner's office then confirmed Tuesday evening that nobody from the party would deliver an official televised response.

Pelosi said the party's "silence" would "speak volumes about their lack of commitment to creating jobs."

"The Republicans' refusal to respond to the president's proposal on jobs is not only disrespectful to him, but to the American people," Pelosi said.

But Boehner spokesman Mike Steel said Obama's proposals on Thursday "will rise or fall on their own merits," suggesting a GOP response was not needed.

"Republicans are, and have been, entirely focused on job creation. Every member of Congress, and -- more importantly -- the American people, will provide a reaction to the president's address," Steel said.

Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., said there will be "plenty" of response to the president's speech on Friday, but told Fox News he suspects the reason there's no formal response is "the speaker doesn't expect to hear much to respond to."

Some members of Congress, though, won't be there when Obama delivers his address to a Joint Session of Congress.

Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., has said he doesn't think he'll attend -- he told Fox News he's "sick and tired of speeches." Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., also said he'd skip, writing on his Twitter page that he has no interest in being a "prop" for Obama's speech. Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., will not attend either.

Dana Perino, former press secretary for George W. Bush, said the lawmakers should attend the session because "you're an elected leader, and it's quite a privilege to be able to be there."

As for a GOP rebuttal, Perino said there is a downside to it in that it always makes the opposition look small in comparison to the president.

"This is not a State of the Union address, but still tradition would say there should be a rebuttal. I don't think it's necessary, the game is starting," Perino said, referring to the first game of the NFL season, which immediately follows the president's speech.

Perino said congressional leaders have opened Statuary Hall in the Capitol to allow any member of Congress to talk to the media.

I don't care about the formal response especially when everyone will be available for interviews right after.

It is petty if those three don't show up. Show some respect for the office even if you don't respect the man.

First off, it can always get more petty.

Secondly, this speech is little more than a campaign add. Lots of sizzle but no steak. I don't see how attending or not attending the speech will matter one iota.

At this point, Obama has the feel of an NFL coach who has lost his team.

Wonder just how bad the tv ratings will be. Obama speech fatigue has to be setting in.

Why would you show up when your POTUS just pulled this "sophmoric stunt" attempting to show up the GOP debates?

The only thing this "usurper" in the oval office is serious about is "destroying" America, PERIOD!!

BTW, Dana Perino is a very "smug RINO". Of course she would say the Repubs should show up and give a rebuttal. She is all about "coming to the middle" which is the RINO's mantra.

In order to save this country "We The People" can't come to the middle, PERIOD!!!

Perino said they should show up, and that it isn't necessary to give a rebuttal, you extremist goon.

The message is clear from the Republican leaders, if you can't put a plan on paper don't count on us attending the speeches.

It's entirely the Congressmen's power to attend the speech. Common respect for the office and the country's government says they should, not the President.

And yeah, you're an extremist. You're about as black/white prism as al-Qaida and Noam Chomsky.

I seem to recall, that this was used by the right on the anti-Bush crowd.

That doesn't make someone an extremist.

Then "Usurper Zero" needs to start respecting "We The People" FIRST not the other way around.

And "THERE" is the "idealogue difference" Jentzy Boy!!

The color "grey" is the worshipped color of the radical lefty Marxists because then you can live in continual "relativism" without any hint of "absolutism" thus there are no moral absolutes thus you can live anyway you want and thus you are reduced down to a mere "animal unit" that better produce or you die.
