WASHINGTON — Republican aides are calling out the White House for scheduling President Barack Obama's remarks on avoiding the sequester at the same time House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is delivering a major address Tuesday afternoon.

Cantor's address to the American Enterprise Institute at 1 p.m. has been on the books for weeks, and is billed by his aides as an agenda-setting speech — and one, that according to excerpts, will continue the party's shift away from a singular focus on fiscal isses.

I was not aware of this epic, agenda-setting, teeth-brightening, hair-volumizing speech, that has been on the books for weeks.

But if I am to believe the GOP, millions of Americans were anticipating this speech like Beyonce fans tuning into the Superbowl and that has now all been ruined by the Ruiner of Everything, Barack Hussein Obama.

Brendan Buck, House communications director for legislative initiatives.

Now all the C-Span watch parties that were planned in anticipation of Eric Cantor's speech, have been ruined as the President rains on the GOP's parade, with a speech about his proposed alternative to the automatic sequestration cuts arriving in four weeks.

So in order to save the Republic and in the spirit of bi-partisanship, please watch the President live and then TiVo Eric Cantor, who is giving a very important speech today.

The President is scheduled to make his presentation at 1:15 CT (Cantor Time.)

For those that can find the words, feel free to discuss how past speeches from Eric Cantor have fundamentally changed your lives.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
