Rush Limbaugh: Boehner’s got to say no to Obama speech
Speaker of the House John Boehner should outright reject President Obama’s request to deliver a speech outlining his jobs plan before a joint session of Congress on Sept. 7, a night that happens to feature a nationally televised debate among Republican presidential candidates.
So says top-rated radio host Rush Limbaugh, who urged this afternoon, “Boehner’s got to say no.”
“Why should the Republicans grant the president a joint session of Congress to make a political campaign speech on any date?” Limbaugh asked. “Why should the Republicans handcuff themselves that way?”
