Default Peolosi cancels SOTU at the People's House

So the Speaker of the house sent a letter to the President essentially rescinding her invitation to come and giver the SOTU speech on January 29, 2019.


So The President will likely invoke plan "B." whatever that is, and speak elsewhere.

However;
I think Trump should go anyways. What would be really cool is if the President threatens to show up at the House of Representatives, despite her objections. He can march down Pennsylvania Avenue with a phalanx of Secret Service and the only thing Nancy can do to stop him is build a wall.

All those Democrats campaigning on not voting for her as Speaker must be really proud of her. Tear apart the Republic because Pelosi the petulant child cannot bear the indignity of the President delivering the SOTU speech before a joint session of Congress and the SCOTUS as has been done for decades. Waa, baby Nancy in a spectacular show of partisan political pique throws a tantrum.

Link?

the reason you can't find one is it isn't true. Pelosi said the President and she could get together on a date for the SoU after the shutdown is over. Trump is supposedly looking at other venues besides the state house.

When Trump rescinded the military transport for Nancy's & friends oversea trip, the media went ballistic on the tit-for-tat...Will they do so, here, with Nancy?...

Personally?...I say hold the State of the Union in Pelosi's district...

I don't know which Fox report people are looking at but Pelosi did not call off the SoU
Trump did and went on to stoke fear in his speech. Even he said he was looking into other venues. Nancy repeated he could do another venue but that she and he could set a date after the shut down is over.

She is preventing it from happening in the House for the bogus reason of security.

Quote:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday rescinded her invitation to President Trump to deliver the State of the Union in the House next week denying him a national platform for the annual speech in an extraordinary standoff between the two most powerful figures in the nation.

The sparring has now led to the effective cancellation of a decades-old tradition in which presidents aimed to unify the nation, even in times of divided government. An annual show of unity has devolved into disunity.

That isn't a Fox source, and many other sources besides Fox have reported this, as a simple Google search shows.

She didn't cancel the State of the Union, merely postponed it
yes it might have been political but so was trumps reneging on the first deal
and who wants the secret service to work w/o pay?
anyway it's moot now.

Seriously? You need a link to the top story of the day?
I posted within minutes of the announcement, there was no "link" as there was no published story. I would suggest you stop depending on the internet trolls for your information. There is no guarantee you will find the truth there.

And it is true. She cancelled her invitations, (technically she rescinded it) so the thread title stands.

The question now its she shot her last wad here. What's left to do???? All she and her compatriots have left is two years of obstruction , resist, and investigate. Whilst it may be the prerogative, it is not the purpose of the Legislature.

The problems on the border are not manufactured. They are real. the president has offered solutions, Good or bad, by contrast Pelosi has not.


I feel sorry for the 800,000 Federal workers currently not working or getting paid. But they were all employed back in 2009-20016 when up to 10% of our workforce was unemployed. And a majority of them supported the Democrats. Does the Speaker not recognize they are getting a taste of what Americans deal with every day? That being non essential by definition means your job is not guaranteed.

Our government has gotten so overwhelmingly big that it 's stupidity and partisan fights effect the machinery of the economy. Based on the well published intentions of our Founders, it wasn't ever supposed to be that way. We can thank progressives, going all the way back to Roosevelt, for tinkering with the apparatus.

BTW,,,; if you think I'm referring to FDR you would be mistaken.

Trump gave in and will postpone the SotU until the government is over.

A little pissed at Trump for caving. I like his response and reasoning, but still disappointed he let that hag have her way, although I think this makes him look like the bigger and more mature person and will make him look better in the public eye.

Here's Trump's response:

Quote:
"I am not looking for an alternative venue for the SOTU Address because there is no venue that can compete with the history, tradition and importance of the House Chamber," he added in a second tweet.

What he shoulda done was hold it in front of her house and that wall protecting her house.
