He can’t give the speech later because that conflicts with the first game of regular NFL season.
And now it turns out his new speech time conflicts with a lawmaker charity hockey game benefiting wounded warriors.
Next Thursday evening, September 8, was going to find the PuckBuddys at Kettler (on assignment for RMNB!) covering the game between the USA Warriors Ice Hockey Team and the Lawmakers, made up of members of Congress and their staff.
We’ve been doing interviews this week with the Warriors’ coach and players, only to find out this morning that there may be a scheduling complication.
It seems nothing is easy in Washington anymore. The tiff between President Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner that pushed the President’s Joint Session address on jobs to Thursday evening may affect the charity game. We’ll stay in contact with the Warrior front office and share developments as soon as we learn more.
The game time is 7pm. The charity event for wounded warriors is sponsored by the NHL and Washington Capitals, amongst others.
So which will get rescheduled? The charity hockey game for wounded warriors? Or Barack Obama’s 1,960th pointless speech on “job creation” that just spends money and inevitably leads to zero jobs created?
