Barack Obama gave in to Speaker John Boehner tonight. He’ll move his jobs speech to Thursday night September 8.
The AP reported, via Free Republic:

President Barack Obama has acceded to House Speaker John Boehner’s wishes to deliver an address on jobs and the economy to a joint session of Congress on Sept. 8. The president had requested Sept. 7 for the long-anticipated speech.

In agreeing to Boehner’s schedule, Obama’s address will compete with the opening game of the National Football League season — a conflict the White House wanted to avoid.
