POTUS's schedule: Quiet day at the White House

President Obama returned home from his trip to Mexico overnight on Tuesday. It was an uneventful flight home with the exception that he did make an appearance in the press cabin on Air Force One to wish a reporter a Happy Birthday. Marine One landed on the South Lawn last night at 1:20a. So Obama is taking it easy today. His administration says he'll have meetings at the White House today but we won't know when or with whom because there are no public events listed on his schedule. Not even a briefing. But we'll keep you updated on any changes that happen throughout the day!

      I thought the press conference went very well....and I think Russia will realize that shipping arms without insurance cover a problem they don't want to deal with indefinitely. Putin knows the hand he is holding is not a winning hand, it will not win those in Syria over to loving and living with a Syria where Assad stays in power. We all know that isn't going to happen. As the old song goes "Know When To Hold'em And Know When To Fold'em", but Putin will need to save face because he will be key in negotiating a change.

      What? People today are talking about Obama's press conference and how bad it was. They are also talking about this administration skirting the law with F+F and illegals. People like you better get your act together and really look at what this president is doing.
      Mitt is a good man who has been successful at everything he has done in his life. He is what this country needs now. The community organizer, pot + coke head had his turn and it didn't work out.

    Quiet day? I guess Obama decided that jobs were not as important as protecting Holder today. Another example that this is THE MOST CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION IN OUR HISTORY!! The only conclusion we can make of this is Obama's name is all over the documents. We get this fron Obama today when for a year they have said "we gave you the documents"? How stupid do these criminals think Americans are?
    These stupid people think they are still in Chicago.

      I'm really psesid off about this post.You should look after some german sources that are telling that the Germans are angry with tarantino because of inglorious bastards, you will NOT find anything.Fact is, it isn't true that the germans are angry with QT. Almost every german news magazine has reported about inglorious bastards in a very forward looking way.It is just wrong. British press is telling lies, like always.

    isn't it ironic, the whole world listen carefully to Obama, ask for his advice. Yet, the GOP tries to sabotage the president every opportunity they try. silly, isn't it? Romney can only play dough, yes, he did.

      People in the GOP knew what this guy wanted to do, unlike you apparently.
      If a robber came to your house to rob you would you want him to succeed? After his first year in office, many of us feel the same way about Obama. He is clueless. If he did nothing this country would have been much better off. Things are getting worse and will get more so when the ruling comes down on Obamacare. He will be remembered for messing up healthcare, F+F w/border guards getting killed and putting 800,000 "illegal" people on the governmnet payroll.

      No, 2020, what is ironic is that is the "hope and change" you all voted for, and now, after promising Russia the moon 2 months ago, Putin won't even make eye contact, Iran and Syria continue to snub their nose at his "demands," Pakistan, once a cautious ally is becoming a foe, Egypt's bringing on a regime that appears it may be as brutal and hostile toward Israel as any in the Middle East. Europe is falling apart and NOT looking to the US for guidance/assistance, Obama's gift to world leaders is an i-pod with his speeches...And you BELIEVE the world asks Obama for his advice? The only reason they listen carefully is to know what crisis they are going to have to avert/work through next.

        he had never seen the ad and only read press reports about it. He also said: Having now revwieed the ad, it is even more clear to me that given the disgraceful tenor of Senator McCain's ads and their persistent falsehoods, his campaign is in no position to criticize.” Does anyone besides me think this sounds like a variant of the childish retort, I'm rubber, you're glue. Whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you! Of course the Obamessiah has a habit of acting childish whenever he thinks someone has scored points on him so why should this be any different?

    isn't it ironic, the whole world listen carefully to Obama, ask for his advice. And now scoff and laugh at his ignorance..

      Seth R.,I've read most of what you wrote before on a news wetbsie In general, I think McCain lost for the reason DKL posited, or for the reason that Reagan won- that he was not polarizing enough, or that he was polarizing in the first place. McCain's policies where pragmatic and good, having sound conservative fundamentals, for the most part. One could disagree with them, but not discredit them.I think the one place McCain lacked was the idea he portayed. He tried to run on change like Obama, but Obama marketed better. McCain picked Palin in a very strategically brilliant move, but failed to market her well. He did not have great ideals like people think Obama had.However, looking at the reasons why Obama won, none of this matters- there is no singular reason Obama won. No significant number of people cared about any one particular issue that voted for him. He was a historic, black, academic, eloquent candidate. This was the biggest Kumbaya presidential election in history. I'm not upset at all about the outcome, but people voted for Obama because he made them think of their own Utopia, whatever that is.McCain was an excellent candidate- good policy, excellent record, and arguably the most honorable character of any politician in office. But he didn't have a chance because many people didn't care about any of that.

    Well I'm glad he is taking it easy because he has the private sector doing fine and there are such a surplus of jobs that he is granting 800,000 illegals the right to work to fill them and he did just complete his 100th game in golf since he has been President so he should take a break I mean how hard do you people expect a guy to work?

    16: Can you be pro-environment, or pro-choice, or anti-Patriot Act, or anti-spending, or e2€œbring the boys homee2€9d, pro-gun control, or any nubmer of things (not all of them at once), and still be a conservative? Many would say no.In the ideological mainstream American movement conservative sense:Pro-environment? Yes.Environmental extremist? No.Pro-choice? Probably not.Anti-spending? Are you kidding? Mandatory. Bring the boys home ? Usually not.Don't rush into unnecessary wars? Absolutely.The first thing to recognize is that Bush and McCain are moderates who might be more accurately characterized as soft-liberals than conservatives. The conservative wing of the GOP has rarely been dominant.Nixon conservative? No.Ford? No.Reagan? Yes.Bush 41? No.Bush 43? No.President Bush has not governed as a conservative. Most conservatives think that his foreign policy is too Wilsonian, and that the decision to invade Iraq was foolish (at least in retrospect). They also think that Bush and the GOP congress has complete lost all spending discipline over the past decade or so, that Bush's domestic policy has been a disastrous combination of neglect, more of the same, and federal over-reach.Whate2€™s the definitive, minimal core of ideas required today to be a conservative?I would say strong support for:1. Limited government2. Federalism / subsidiarity3. Strong national defenseHuckabee, by the way, is generally considered to be a Bush-style moderate, not a conservative.
