POTUS schedule for February 16, 2011

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Wednesday marks the first time we'll see the new White House Press Secretary Jay Carney behind the podium. Yesterday at the presser, POTUS said  "I figured that I’d give Jay one more taste of freedom before we lock him in a room with all of you, so I’m here to do a little downfield blocking for him." Carney's first briefing will be at 12:30pm. 

President Obama starts his day with a series of the usual closed press meetings with his senior advisors and regular briefings. This afternoon, he'll have two other closed meetings- one with Secretary Clinton and the other with the Senate democratic leadership.

The only time we'll see Mr. Obama on camera is later this afternoon when he gives remarks in the East Room for America's Great Outdoors Initiative. The president signed a Presidential Memorandum last April in order to promote conservation of America's outdoor spaces through community involvement. He'll update those efforts in his comments this afternoon.

    @AMERICA 1st; Oh, is that so? BTW, if CNN or any American newstation was 'communist' connected, all you'd hear about would be the 'dog sniffing itself'! The communists don't feel the need to be 'transparent' to their people! They don't want all of their 'moonlighting politicians' picking apart each and everything they're intending to do! Oh, you wouldn't hear about anything that could be deemed 'important news'! About 'nobama' and nobody else, OK? Be careful what you ask for, you MIGHT get it! Geeez!
