I cannot hear the speech from my computer due to my hearing loss.
However why would you invite the President then give him an earful of advice that you know he does not listen to or would heed?
Sounds like a publicity stunt to me. Shalom
I don't know - I don't know what the politics, if any, of that annual event are, but somehow I don't think boycotting it would have done him any good. He has his hands full as it is - the unemployment numbers are up again this week, this morning Walmart reported sales $1 billion less than expected, and if the sequestration takes place next week we will officially enter a new recession, which he will not be able to blame on Bush as we exited the last one 2 1/2 years ago. Add to that the new revelations that he left a "do not disturb" order during the Benghazi attack because he wanted his beauty sleep for a campaign speech in Denver the following day, and he is facing some real issues. On top of everything, the UK reported their economy slid down .3% last quarter and they are likely to slip into the third part of a triple-dip recession, and things are pretty depressing.
Plus, I'm right in the middle of an ice storm. I may go back to bed and leave a wake-up call with you to wake me up when the world gets back to normal...this is too depressing.
Speaking of wake-up calls, I saw a commercial for something or other the other night where this guy checks into a hotel and the clerk said "here is your wake-up call" and handed him a rooster...
