POTUS's schedule for Friday, October 12

TGIF!! 25 more days until the election! On this morning after the debate, all the talk is about Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. President Obama told the press twice last night when he landed that he couldn't be prouder of his vice president. But today, he lays low. He has nothing on his public schedule until this evening when he goes to dinner with some winners of a recent campaign contest. He leaves tomorrow for debate prep in Williamsburg over the next few days. We can only speculate that there just might be some more debate prep going on today at the White House as well. Press Secretary Jay Carney will hold a briefing at 11:15a this morning and we expect more questions about the administration's response to the attack in Libya to come up as well as more post-debate analysis questions.

Full guidance released by the White House:

6:30PM THE PRESIDENT has dinner with winners of a campaign contest

      With all the photo ops and fund raisers, how does Obama find time to squander SIX TRILLION DOLLARS of OUR hard earned money ??? Well, we know he doesn't have time to fulfill his duties as President. After discovering how 60% of his online/overseas contributions hide who the donors are, we now know how he has raised nearly a BILLION dollars, much of it from countries who are anti-American ... what's he paying them off with ???. And, who helped pay his Harvard tuition? ... It's pretty obvious WHY he's paid over a million dollars to seal his college records. And, regarding the murder of our Ambassador and Navy Seals in Libya, Obama is still trying to cover up his lies about the obscure web video, instead of the truth about a planned terrorist attack ... while Biden lies to the American people about never receiving multiple requests from our Ambassador, for more security. After getting away with the cover up over the Fast and Furious murders, they now think they can get away with ANYTHING !!! ...Time to replace these liars with real leadership !!!

        Retards are at it again.

        Look, the Republicans left the economy in a mess, started two wars and gave away trillions in dollars to the super wealthy. Now they are complaining that Obama did not clean it up fast enough.

      • Jay in NC

        You say "gave away trillions in dollars to the super wealthy"? What, when?

        According to Forbes there are 425 billionaires in the USA. Their net worth is $1.39 trillion. So how on God's green earth did the Republicans give them trillions?

      • Howard

        So, Biden claims he and Obama never received requests for more security from the Libyan Embassy ... on 9-11 ... when there is documented proof to the contrary. And, when they stick to a bogus story, for two weeks, about youtube videos, and spontaneous protests ... when they actually knew within the first 24 hours, it was an organized terrorist attack ... they are lying ... for self-serving political advantage. When your leaders get caught lying to your face ,,, and you still choose to believe them ... even though you and your children's entire future, and survival depends on the truth ... you're a fool.
        It's time to remove these liars from office.

        Wow Howard were you asleep from 2001 to 2008? Clinton left Bush with a national debt of 3.8 trillion, a massive budget surplus in the billions, and a plan that if Bush had followed the U.S. debt would have been wiped out by now. It was the policies of the Republicans in the House, Senate, and the White House that caused the problems we have today, and if anybody thinks that ANY President could turn around the country in 3 and a half years needs to get their head looked at. Here are some really facts, and not made up like Romney and Ryan love to do. Bush created 2.8 million jobs in the 8 years he was President, Obama has created over 5.3 million jobs in 3 years. Bush started 2 wars, one of which we are still fighting today after a decade. Obama has ended the Iraq war and is ending the Afghan. war. Bush gave tax cuts to the top 2% hoping that it would create jobs, and we all know how that worked out for America. I could go on and on, but level headed people get what I mean. So if you want to go back to the failed policies of the Republican party than that's your choice, but if you want to stay on the path to continued job growth, and strong financial market, than vote Democrat.

      Oh really, and Republicans don't do this.

      Once we see Romney's tax returns on Wikileaks and Mother Jones it will be game over.

        923 Executive Orders in 40 Months

        During my lifetime, all Presidents have issued Executive Orders, for reasons that vary, some more than others.

        When a President issued as many as 30 Executive Orders during a term in Office, people thought there was something amiss.

        We would find out he donated more than and 10 dems combined. So what?
        We all know if Obama donated that kind of money that would be all over the news.

    Biteme was very entertaining last night, ill give him that. A dead Ambassador, unemploy thru the roof, 90 billion in bad green companys, al quaida on the rise and spending out of controll are not laughing topics. I really dont want this clown making decisions on that level, these are very serious times. I say demote cracker joe to jester, if he wants to stay in the whitehouse. We need to get some serious people in there. We do not need a rock star and jester running the country

    Meanwhile.., another day goes by without a word from CNN on the Lybian cover up. Hmmm....

    It's hard to imagine that under Bush this story would be treated the same by CNN. If this kind of catastrophic attack - and cover-up - had happened in 2004 or 2008, it would have certainly dominated the presidential debates and election coverage. But with Obama in office.., crickets from the so-called un-bias goverment watch dogs. Disgustingly dshonest.

      Stop politicizing what happened in Libya.

      Remember it was the Republicans who started two wars that have cost the taxpayers trillions in dollars.

      October 12, 2012 at 2:16 pm |
      • rosco

        we have dead Americans and the pres is trying to pull a fast & furious, thats not politicol???

      • JS

        You are a complete idiot. Biden threw good people under the bus WHEN HE LIED WHEN HE FIRST SPOKE DURING THE DEBATE!!! They knew what happened when it happened. Crazy (literally) Joe knew what happened WHEN IT WAS HAPPENING. THE STATE DEPARTMENT KNEW THOSE POOR PEOPLE NEEDED MORE PROTECTION!!
        Speak to anyone in the military familiar with military procedure for this kind of event. There are recordings. There are videos. There are logs of who was called when. We need the facts. Covering this up, like you shameful libs want to do is unAmerican.
        BTW, Every time Obama and Biden talk about Bin Laden – that is politicizing, you idiot. Americans died because of this administration not acting, either before or during this terror attack. God bless those people.

        so Lionel i was pretty sure we went to war becuase we were attacked on 9/11 or was i dreaming republicans didn't start two wars our country was attacked and we defended ourselves yet Obama without congressional approval invaded Pakistan secretly assisnated osams bin laden then helps destablaize libya syria and egypt to get the middleeast against us also you mention in another comment that republicans gave away trillions in taxs to the super rich state your facts correctly its tax cuts not tax giveaways we shouldn't have a big blated government were the only awnser is to give it more money we should cut and balance have minimal government.

      Another day and the country is trying to dig out of the hole that the Republicans left it. Two wars, economic mess and trillions in tax give aways to the super wealthy.

    Biden looked like the old guy you remember as a kid that always yelled "get off my lawn". He was completely wrong about the Iraq war, he voted for it yet claimed he didn't. He rambled a lot too and referred to "Ronald Romney", who's that? I think those hair transplants and new dentures have poisoned his mind. Lefties eagerly lapped it all up.

    October 12, 2012 at 1:13 pm |

      Biden was speaking to my elderly parents, while Ryan was speaking to the super wealthy.

    biden whipped lyin ryans ass, Of course he laughed and smiled. Ryan tried to tell his big fat lies and Joe shot him down . Repos love guys that lie . Ok to bail on your taxes if you are mittens. He lies about almost everything but howard jerry and the gang don't mind thats because the are they are a bunch of friggen liers too. Vote all repos out

    October 12, 2012 at 1:52 pm |
    • Lionel

      Agree, Biden ripped into Ryan and called him out for his lies. Biden won this debate.

      The poll that CNN took had more Republican than Democrats and this is not representative of the country.

      October 12, 2012 at 2:18 pm |
      • rosco

        all the world saw was the same . first thing he did was blame bush for getting in over thier heads, then the point and blame, it is really getting old, more do nothingess

        October 12, 2012 at 2:33 pm |
      • Caramon

        Actually, I think you will find it is pretty representative of the country. Biden's demeanor during the debate was interpreted as disrespectful. While Ryan appeared to listen. Plus the constant interruptions were plain rude. Judy and Lionel, you can say what you want about me. But it is getting a little old. Try discussing actual issues for a change.

They will all cost more under mitten. act numbers don't add up for mitts tax reform plane everyone will pay more except rich. whats the matter repos no comments on the facts. ???? Where are mitts tax returns you never have answered that one either. Idiots.

    The Romney/Ryan ticket should be called LIAR/LIAR 2012
    Romney refuses to release his taxes and changes his position on abortion, tax policy, and stonewalls on the specifics on his 5-point plan. He slams 47% of the electorate as moochers while catering to his 1% job-creators and finally spoke his truth during this private $50,000 plate fundraiser. Romney release your taxes and man up if you want to be the POTUS.

    Another example of Obama's commitment to America – Friday off – If he actually worked this would have been a 4 day work week – problem is he did not have a single dayor hour this week that was any close to working -just jet setting & campaigning. Presidential? Leadership? Not!

    in 2000, there was a clear choice to elect Al Gore but America made its choice,then in 2004.Then came the full blown economic chaos in 2008,and Obama was elected and worked hard to turn things around with cunning GOP obstruction and disrespect.Now there are those who look at Romney like he is a saint.If he wins, then America,we dont think and we deserve bad leadership
