The President's Schedule Monday Sept. 12, 2011

What looked to be a low-key day for the president is now a bit more exciting with a presidential address from the Rose Garden added to the schedule at 10:40 AM. The president will talk about his new jobs proposal and announce his plan to sent the legislative language to Congress sometime this evening. Here’s how the White House announced the event:

On Monday, the President will make remarks in the Rose Garden on the need for Congress to pass the American Jobs Act. He will announce that he will be sending the bill to Congress on Monday evening when Congress comes back into session. He will call on Congress to pass the bill, which contains the kinds of proposals to grow the economy and create jobs that have been supported by both parties in the past. He will be joined at the Rose Garden event by people from across the country who would benefit from the American Jobs Act, including teachers, police officers, firefighters, construction workers, small business owners, and veterans.

And the official schedule for today:

10:00AM THE PRESIDENT and THE VICE PRESIDENT receive the Presidential Daily Briefing

10:40AM THE PRESIDENT delivers a statement on the American Jobs Act – Rose Garden

    We don't know what's in Obama's bill (it hasn't been written yet) ... we don't know how much it will cost ... we don't know where the money will come from ... but, Obama is trying to RUSH IT THROUGH. How could anyone allow this thief and con man to get away with this ???

    Twelve Words to Describe Obama's Jobs Speech

    Presumptuous: He demanded – 17 times – that Congress immediately pass a bill no one has seen.

    Tired: The speech contained little new, just mostly recycled ideas or extensions of current programs that haven’t worked.

    Small: Its proposals, while expensive, offer little hope of really jump-starting the economy.

    Mind-boggling: Mr. Obama wants to drains hundreds of billions from Social Security for another stimulus.

    Slippery: It will all be paid for, the president said, but it’s up to a Congressional committee to figure out how.

    Misleading: These were just GOP ideas. Really? Republicans have proposed another $450 billion stimulus bill, Mr. Obama?

    Arrogant: He refused to consult in advance with anyone on the Hill, even refusing a meeting request from the House Speaker and Majority Leader.

    Self-centered: The only job he’s really concerned about is his own. If he really wanted a bipartisan package, he would have worked with Republicans to come up with one.

    Unnecessary: The president would have been better off traveling the country this week to lay out proposals, surrounded by people he could claim would might benefit.

    Completely political: Before he spoke, Mr. Obama sent supporters an email titled “Before I head to the Capitol” that ended with “You should donate today.”

    Hyper-partisan: This speech – especially its angry tone – was aimed at setting up the Republicans for blame next fall. Then he’ll say the economy would be better if the GOP has just done what I ordered them to do.

    Misguided: Mr. Obama is betting his re-elect on a massive spending bill

      JoeyDee, Clinton left the nation in debt $ 5,727,776,738,304. That's $ 5.7 trillion.
