    John Boehner to House Republicans: Please attend Obama’s speech

    Every member of the House of Representatives should attend President Barack Obama's address on job creation tonight, House Speaker John Boehner said Thursday in response to reports that several in his caucus are planning to skip the speech. "He is the president of the United States and I believe that all members ought to be here to do this. Doesn't mean they're going to," Boehner told reporters Thursday morning after a conference meeting with fellow Republicans. "Remember, I'm just the Speaker. There are 434 colleagues who have their own opinions and they're entitled to them. But as an institution, the president is coming at our invitation. We ought to be respectful, and we ought to welcome him."Republican lawmakers in both chambers, including Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, who said he would attend an NFL kickoff party instead, have announced they won't attend.

    We saw the same exact speech with the trillion dollar failed stimulus plan. They should just show a rerun of that speech and call it even.
