Good morning from the White House. This morning President Obama receives the daily briefing and then meets with senior advisors in the Oval Office. At 12:30, the president will take off from the South Lawn and travel to Cincinnati, Ohio for a speech on the need for infrastructure spending at the foot of the Brent Spence Bridge – one of the most highly trafficked spans between Ohio and Kentucky. Coincidentally – or not – those two states are the homes of the top Republican leaders in Congress, Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
There is no press briefing today, but Jay Carney will gaggle aboard Air Force One.
