Obama SpeechDespite planned “prom night” seating — where congressmen sit with members of the other party — a host of notable Republicans say they will skip President Obama‘s job creation speech tonight.

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and Senators David Vitter (R-La.) and Jim DeMint are just a few of the congressmen who are boycotting the president’s address.

Their reasons for missing range from opposition to what they consider political posturing by Obama, to not wanting to miss the opening night of the football season.

Having a number of members skip a president’s joint address is not unprecedented, however. The last time was in January 1999, when multiple members — led by Speaker of the House Dennis Hassert — skipped President Bill Clinton’s State of the Union, feeling that is was “disrespectful” to a Congress in the middle of an impeachment process.
