From CNN's Carol Costello:
After consulting with House Speaker John Boehner, President Obama has agreed to move his scheduled special jobs address to a joint session of Congress back one day to avoid a clash with Republicans.
Now, the prime time speech will be on TV at the same time that the NFL kicks off its first game of the season, instead of the original date, when it would have competed with a televised Republican debate.
This scheduling clash has left many worried that lawmakers will continue to be unable to work together once Congress reconvenes.
As a Washington Post op-ed put it, "This spat sums up so well the image problems that Obama has faced since the start of his term. If the White House has spent months working to appear above the partisan fray – as the y insist they have – then pulling a blatantly partisan stunt like this torpedoes all of that PR work."
