Harry Reid might be finally growing a pair. He did something very sneaky tonight:
The handful of Republican members who had planned on skipping President Obama’s jobs address to a joint session Thursday night might have to think again.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has scheduled a vote for Thursday to proceed on a measure related to the country’s debt – a can’t-miss vote for most members.
The timing of the vote? Right after Obama’s 7 p.m. jobs speech.
But hooker using, still Republican Senator David Vitter is having a little hissy fit over it:
Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), who had sent an e-mail to supporters Wednesday trumpeting his decision to skip the speech and host a New Orleans Saints party instead, said Thursday that he would remain in Washington for the speech and vote – but he was not pleased to be doing so.
In a second e-mail to supporters and in messages on Twitter and Facebook, Vitter accused Reid of playing politics by scheduling the debt vote for Thursday night.
