POTUS' Day Ahead: July 5, 2011

Good morning from the White House. Coming off a long holiday weekend, it's a day of closed-door meetings for President Obama.

After the president receives his daily briefing at 9:45 a.m. ET, he will sit down with Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan Crocker, and Lt. Gen. John R. Allen. Allen is Obama's choice to replace Gen. David Petraeus as the new commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan. Patraeus was confirmed as the next director of the Central Intelligence Agency last week.

Later in the day, the president will meet with his new Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta.

    David Patraeus is as bad as they come. Keep your eyes on him. He can not be trusted. Either Obama made a huge misjudgment or Obama's just as bad. I'm beginning to think the later.
