Now UNEMPLOYED jerk of the year, Dan Grilo, sparked outrage Tuesday night when during a three-minute standing ovation for Carryn Owens, widow of U.S. Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens at the Joint Session of the United States Congress, Grilo mocked the widow in a nasty tweet.
The blowback was immediate and harsh enough that Grilo walked back his tweet, deleting the tweet and his twitter account.

Hatred from the other side. I would think this is beyond what a human is capable of saying to someone, but it’s not! pic.twitter.com/nNVfFWJmDh

Grilo who formerly volunteered for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama eventually apologized but the damage was done and karma was about to kick in on Grilo sooner rather than later.
…Grilo followed up, apologizing for what we called a “poorly worded tweet.”
Grilo’s account soon went private, and was then deleted entirely. But the tweets were saved and archived by other Twitter users.
Grilo’s LinkedIn page says he works as a principal for the Chicago-based Liberty Advisor Group. But as of Wednesday morning, Grilo’s profile page on the site had been deleted, and the company later confirmed that an employee had sent what they called “an offensive and inappropriate tweet” regarding the Gold Star family[…]
Liberty Advisor distancing itself from the kerfuffle terminated Grilo earlier today and issued the following statement:

It is still open season Grilo who has a new twitter account, @Daniel__Grilo. After all, you can run but you can’t hide. Unfortunately, Grilo is not the only Progressive who attacked this Gold Star family. The ugly left literally had a meltdown.
H/t Robert Trent.

“On Wednesday, House Republicans forced the president to delay his speech to a joint session of Congress by one day.
Who cares? The White House cares. Very much.
“It is a big deal that the House said ‘no’ to the president from our end,” a White House source with intimate knowledge of what took place between the House and the president told me Thursday. “This confirms what we all know: They will do anything in the House to muck us up.”
On Wednesday, the White House staff did not know exactly what President Barack Obama was going to say in his major jobs speech, but it knew exactly where and when he was going to say it….
…The White House was well aware the president’s speech would conflict with a planned Republican debate sponsored by POLITICO and NBC to be held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. The debate would be broadcast live by MSNBC and live-streamed by POLITICO. CNBC and Telemundo will re-air the broadcast.…”

If what Obama has to say is so important, then why wait until next week? He could have said what he had to say weeks ago.
The House was correct to make Obama wait one day. Furthermore, Obama should not be permitted to hold a joint session for the purposes of campaigning and spreading a Marxist ideology.
It was always Obama’s intent from day one to rain on the GOP’s parade and now it has backfired. So how does Obama behave? Like a cantankerous child.
Moreover, this is not about jobs, the economy of the misery of the American people. It is about Obama getting re-elected and finding an excuse to spend, spend, and spend while raising our taxes.
Obama is desperate for money to pursue his Communist agenda, therefore, he plans to lie as he present a faux another agenda. In other words, the snake oil salesman has another bogus idea he wants to impart on us.
I say that we, the American people, send this child back to his room….in Chicago, Illinois at first light.
