Obama bows to Boehner; jobs speech will be Sept. 8
Boehner gets his way; Obama to talk about jobs on Sept. 8
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' 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.

But the change now will allow a planned Sept. 7 Republican presidential debate to proceed without Obama upstaging it.
