Yesterday President Obama requested a joint session of Congress on September 7.  He did so knowing that the Republican Presidential Debate was schedule for the same date in the Reagan Building.  This was clearly a political move on his part; it was also wrong.

This is not to let the Republicans off the hook; they have been party to more than their fair share of political chicanery.  This time it was the Democrats, but I have no doubt that the Republicans will do something just as egregious. 

I think I speak for a majority of Americans we are tired of the partisan political games and brinkmanship.  We want the two parties to work for the commonweal of the nation, not the commonweal of their political supporters.
