POTUS Screws NBC and Politico

POTUS has now scheduled to give a jobs speech before a joint session of Congress on Sept. 7, thereby potentially screwing over the NBC-Politico sponsored GOP presidential debate scheduled for that same evening at the Reagan Library.

Who will you watch — President Obama or NBC’s Brian Williams and Politico Editor-in-Chief John Harris?

Politico has to be burning up that they have to place a bright red banner announcing POTUS’s speech just under their own debate advertisement.

We’ve requested comments from both NBC and Politico.

AP‘s Phil Elliott reports: “The @presssec Carney says timing of Obama jobs address and GOP debate: ‘It is coincidental.’”
