A day after his surprise press conference, President Obama is set to receive Vice President Biden’s much anticipated recommendations on the issue of gun control.
The recommendations follow more than a week of meetings involving the vice president and several stake-holders on all sides of the issue. It’s expected the recommendations will include both proposals for legislative action as well as executive orders the president can issue unilaterally.
The prospect of the latter has especially riled gun rights supporters, who fear Obama will single-handedly undermine the spirit of the Second Amendment. During the press conference Monday, the president insisted that was not his goal.
Full schedule after the jump:
10:00AM In-Town Pool Call Time
10:45AM THE PRESIDENT and THE VICE PRESIDENT receive the Presidential Daily Briefing
12:30PM THE PRESIDENT and THE VICE PRESIDENT meet for lunch
Private Dining Room
12:30PM Press Briefing by Press Secretary Jay Carney
Dumb and Dumber on the move
: We are not a deadbeat Nation: Bambam, Im just a dead beat pres, like a drunken sailor on shore leave
Standing guard: President Obama's Chicago home on the border of Hyde Park and Kenwood has a constant Secret Service detail 7/24 and we pay for it if you cabt see what a jerk pres we have thab you are blind.
We also have the same at each past president's homes, plus several other persons, and it has been the law sin 1901.....so do you have a problem with that?
After the assassination of President William McKinley in 1901, Congress directed the Secret Service to protect the President of the United States. Protection remains a key mission of the United States Secret Service.
1.) Today, the Secret Service is authorized by law (18 United States Code § 3056) to protect:
The president, the vice president, (or other individuals next in order of succession to the Office of the President), the president-elect and vice president-elect
2.) The immediate families of the above individuals
3.) Former presidents and their spouses for their lifetimes, except when the spouse remarries. In 1997, Congressional legislation became effective limiting Secret Service protection to former presidents for a period of not more than 10 years from the date the former president leaves office (*which means we still cover George W. Bushwith a security detail at his home 24/7)
4.) Children of former presidents until age 16
5.) Visiting heads of foreign states or governments and their spouses traveling with them, other distinguished foreign visitors to the United States, and official representatives of the United States performing special missions abroad
6.) Major presidential and vice presidential candidates, and their spouses within 120 days of a general presidential election. As defined in statute, the term "major presidential and vice presidential candidates" means those individuals identified as such by the Secretary of Homeland Security after consultation with an advisory committee consisting of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the minority leader of the House of Representatives, the majority and minority leaders of the Senate, and one additional member selected by the other members of the committee.
7.) Other individuals as designated per Executive Order of the President
8.) National Special Security Events, when designated as such by the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security
People like you make me sick. All presidents have security details even after leaving office. Pound sand!
You are beyond stupid.....
he will not return to chicago...like the clintons they will move to a local the suits their elitist pursuits. Who would live in chicago anyway...except to track to power? Total waist of tax payer funds...but then obama could care less.
A new online video game is taking political discourse to a whole new level. We already reported the death threats being received by NRA executives and now, a video game which allows users to shoot NRA President David Keene in the head, has been released.
Libs in action, can anyone say hypocrite ???? if it wasnt so sick it would be funny, these people are against guns ???
How do you know it is libs? Teatards like to shoot everybody, especially women and children who represent a tyranical government......
There are morons on both sides of this issue, no surprise there!
The feds ordered the arrest of an "llegal immigrant and registered sex offender" working for Senator Bob Menendez to be delayed until after the November election.
Wonder which party he belongs to????
Well I can see some Free Republic web crawler has got his daily myth fix. Really now..... was it David Keene or Wayne LaPierre whose head is featured in the video? I can find a lot of discourse but no actual video.. and chats that say it features one or the other, but contradicting which of the two is featured......LOL! Unless you have the link to the video I'm a mind to think it either doesn't exist..or if it does whose to say who created it....false indignation and anger has not been unheard of before.
Someone also seems to have overlooked the fact with all the NRA crying about video games being the cause of violence when they themselves have partnered with the video industry to produce many video games.
"Really if they believe video games promote violence, when they have not been shy about promoting video games to promote violence......fact is: that is a discussion they can't have both ways.
So typical, YOU CANT FIND, must not exist, if YOU CANT FIND IT, Lady get over yourself
Gee, moose, provide a link already. Jean at least does her research and looks for more than just one site and one opinion. You should try that sometime.
Obam we arent a dead beat Nation, Well we have a dead beat pres who accused Bush of using the credit card,
I thought this pres was going to go thru the budget line by line if he had to, to keep his campaign promise of cutting debt in half,,,, i guess he forgot that one to.
Hows sen Menendez doing??? the feds put off arresting a sex offender that worked for him till after the election, go figure, oh maybe bam boy will give him immunity !!!!!!!!!!!!!
great cnn moderating again when they see something they dont like, FREEDOM of speech ????
Everybody gets their turn at being moderated. Geesh, go over to the FOX site,....oh wait, they don't have a comment section. What was that about freedom of speech?? They don't even give you an opportunity to excercise it.
I still have waiting for mod on posts, every time ive tried to post a link, cnn blocks this will prob also, try rt news & DW journal for some honest reporting, not opinions
No president has line item veto, yet some fell for that one
Understand, point is he never even looked at it, correct me if im wrong (according to jean everyone is wrong but her) if i remember my civic classes he can put a freeze for an audit on any item that has to do with budget , im not 100% if that still rings true or not.
I remember the axe, scalpel conversation back in 2004. We got neither.
