POTUS' Day Ahead: All quiet on Pennsylvania Avenue

After a busy, and unpredictable, weekend at the Summit of the Americas in Colombia, President Obama is laying low Monday with no events on his schedule. Sadly for reporters, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is also not, as of now, planning to hold a press briefing.

Still, it will be a busy day of news surrounding the White House. On the Hill, the Senate is expected to defeat by a partisan vote a measure that would take steps to initiate the so-called "Buffett Rule" the president has made an aggressive case for over the last couple of weeks. It's possible the president might react on camera to the defeat, though a paper statement is more likely.

Meanwhile, the secret service scandal continues to dominate the news cycle three days after it broke. With the story breaking late Friday night, it's likely most Americans are just now catching up on it, so look for another full day of coverage on the issue.

    Hope this scandal throws all the Democrats out of office along with Obozo. This is really a disgrace to Obozo's
    Administration. First the GSA and now the SS scandal all this shows how poorly of a job the Administration is doing. Yea Republicans 2012, Yea Mitt 2012 and this is a Latina female speaking.

        well another mess in the obama administration...one gaffe after another... the Russian mic, GSA,Supreme Court obama care fiasco, and now this embarrrasment in Columbia. I did see the story where Hillray was partying, drinking, and dancing in Columbia and knew this was a big gig to them...but wow! If the press pulls the sheet off this obama administration I'm sure we will see some real scum bag dealings from the chicago white house mob.
