-- controversy erupted today after president Barack Obama announced that He intends to unveil this jobs plan in the form of a speech.
To a joint session of congress however one little itsy bitsy problem.
House speaker of the house has essentially declined the president's request now things are just a little bit different for the anointed one now that he's not on Martha's Vineyard.
And it all started when the president sent a letter to speaker of the house John Boehner to formally asked for the joint session be held next Wednesday night.
Well not so coincidentally that happens to be the same night of the next Republican presidential debate.
But let not your heart be troubled today the white house Press Secretary He generously announced said He wouldn't mind -- the Republicans rescheduled -- debate.
Which has been on the books for months by the way the debate organizers have dismissed mr.
And that brings us to speak debater who in light of the pending GOP debate and other legislative concerns has asked that the speech take place on Thursday instead.
Well to get Ann -- -- reaction of the shoving match coming up straight ahead.
Meanwhile -- was high noon deep in the heart of Texas yesterday as the two Republican presidential front runners -- they collided for a brief moment.
And the showdown took place at the veterans of foreign wars national convention in San Antonio.
And despite being on the turf of his political rival Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney showed He was not afraid.
Of taking a shot at the Texas governor Rick Perry let's take a look.
Now I'm a conservative businessman.
I spent most of my life outside politics.
Dealing with real problems in the real economy.
Career politicians got us into this mess and they simply don't know how to get -- out.
And joining me now with reaction all the drama in DC in beyond is the author of the the New York Times best seller demonic in Coulter is back -- -- -- Are you -- you in studio hi this is pretty amazing.
-- -- the president -- on vacation.
Pop gonna come up with a plan on three years into my administration it's time to get a plan shovel ready jobs alright putting all that aside.
He has to pick what what bright light around the president.
I think it was intentional -- -- -- -- And and the idea that He will not take today off come back early from Martha's Vineyard vacation today to come up of his jobs plan but He will just.
Try to interfere with the Republican -- I also likes it wasn't and the way it was originally reported the White House.
I'm told NBC they were allowed to -- schedule the Republican debate.
Which does at least give the order of things the White House the boss of NBC.
But I think they are suing absolutely the right thing now Obama not only looks -- looks weak Boehner said no come do it by.
They're -- why not do -- Tuesday.
Why not today right after Labor Day -- he's gonna until Wednesday.
Not quite immediately after Labor Day not Thursday can't wait until Thursday.
Oh what no one day 24 hours we have another -- and -- -- -- the same old nonsense anyway and the guys did -- calling eight joint session of congress and as I'm not just for.
State of the Union Address is for an announcement of war after an attack -- -- nation.
I enjoy the session of congress just a year the same old nonsense from the sky and that while it.
Here's -- thing it's almost like he's reaching down into his inner cry baby child -- -- And and could that you know that they plan that's somebody -- what a great idea will put the Republicans in the box they're gonna say noted the president he'll look good and they'll seem petty.
I of the -- let's see Brett -- is the president that's.
This was on the books or ever now and He wasn't gonna stop is vacation to give this speech so I.
I think this is gonna backfire whatever genius came up with a psychiatrist I think that's -- particularly once we hear the same nonsense in his speech or I mean there's no possible way Obama can come up -- some.
Actually useful idea for creating jobs because.
He is a dyed in the wool liberal and liberals don't know how to do what for the president -- said -- now supports extending the gas tax.
He keep us talking about it.
-- we'll talk about this later shovel ready jobs new infrastructure SpinRite new investment but they want to new stimulus bill with a shovel ready jobs because the last stimulus bill only funded public school teachers pensions.
Mike -- always telling you that and clips are going it run over and over again until your viewers are -- complaining.
You have to do the one where Obama says He wants to get gas prices up to seven dollars in order to -- -- people to drive laughs but the reason is is because.
They did inflate your tires and get a truly not a.
We get better yes my reason is because liberals are not -- and they believe in this global warming and it claims -- over the can make us all live from.
I don't know like the -- -- I didn't know it's going to be very difficulty for you to talk about anybody other than Chris Christie Chris Chris Europe's Chris what's with a smile ice.
Chris Chris Chris Christie -- -- so and it what do you think look at the poll numbers Perry's come out of Barak strong.
Romney saying -- in there Iraq was doing well.
Palin is not -- but she still polling very well who do you think.
You know at this point what do you think of -- have an answer about him.
I -- The fact that He leaps to the head of the polls -- does show enormous dissatisfaction with Romney and for good reason.
Though we may have to get used to it if my love in Trenton, New Jersey doesn't -- band.
But I think precede our -- rather Perry does have some problems of his own and I I think it's very important for people to remember that there is a difference.
Running and being elected in Texas -- Massachusetts or New Jersey.
I mean basically Perry has won elections.
In a state that is entirely the Republican base is I -- He's up by -- four points and he's got -- biggest -- -- -- but when it if you can is moreover but the more important point is when your entire electorate.
Is a conservative Republican base.
You have room to make a single mistake and that has made mistakes he's made big mistakes on illegal immigration vulnerability here in terms of Obama the economy -- and half but even the even though look Maxine Waters criticizing him as important Maxine -- gonna vote for Barack Obama.
-- for Republican.
What percentage of his his space -- stays home builders are out of work the economy's not gotten better hope and change -- fizzled -- right and nobody agree Obama has a total -- glass jaw and it could be that any of these candidates could win but him is well run your best candidate at all C -- -- about which candidate.
Is going to govern probably -- would also say that since I think if if Chris doesn't come and it's going to be Romney perhaps this is wrong.
But that is my -- item one -- a Romney.
We should think about the United States senate because in both cases we want to Republican president will sign the things that the Republican senate will send up this should be a good year for Republicans in the senate so don't -- about me.
Election -- if you're if governor Christie doesn't run.
Which I don't think I look I've asked them enough times and I'm taking him at his word -- so He doesn't run.
Would you want whoever gets the nomination pick Christie's BP or maybe somebody like not.
I don't know it's definitely got -- Marco -- I don't know of the presidential candidate is -- -- be -- -- of the vice presidential candidate -- the -- -- -- Marco -- -- He turns it down and I don't know why you -- well I don't know why would and I don't think He should because I think he's the future although it is getting to the point right now the reason Marco -- -- just seems like such an obvious choice is the choice of the Tea Party He is the choice of on the Hispanics He is the choice for Florida which is normally a swing state.
Obama's numbers are so bad in Florida may not may not even need somebody from Florida let's go for somebody from California.
He's got to take back what is that I -- that's that back up.
It's a possibility.
No but I do think what the I do think Obama has a real class job but things can change last question powers of incumbency and -- -- the mainstream media so what do you think of all these attacks Congressional Black Caucus members including -- to show this next Andre Carson.
You know standing by these comments about.
With Tea Party wanting to lynch African Americans.
And tea parties members of terrorist.
They can go straight to hell they're racist.
Why do you think they're ratcheting up its obviously strategy the Democrats be well I think it's a somber and mature response to the shooting of Gabriel -- firm where we've all decided to -- -- Cut the hyperbole and political writer that's so this is all come by in a moment.
All right Coulter good to see if Tennessee -- -- you know as soon as Christie tells me what his decisions I think I'm gonna you know first you better tell me first.
