POTUS' Day Ahead: Behind closed doors

President Obama spends the day largely behind cameras, save for some quick comments ahead of a Cabinet meeting this morning.

In the evening the president hits up two high-dollar fundraising events, but these two are closed to cameras.

As the political world watches Florida on this day, it's probably a good time for the president to fly under the radar.

    Pres. Obama is the hardest working president we have ever had. He has the beat interest of ALL AMERICANS regardless of race, religion, sexual preference, and political choice. Everything he does and says is done with vigor, research, breeding and class. He is aware of the hate that is in the hearts of so many Americans, he ignores it keeps on doing what is beat for this country. He finally got the message that the GOP's did not want to compromise, focus on making America a better place for all. He had to go through this, test them. He is a fast learner, street wise so now he takes it to the American. Change starts from the bottom UP. The 2%, wealthy wants to set America back working class surfs, slaves, no rights at all. The governmt provides checks and balances. Check history, unions, anti trust, regulations which protect Americans (29 miners killed, 11 oil drill workers killed). The pipe line from Canada has to b safe for all involved. Off shore drilling HAS to be safe, check oil spill 1995 in Gulf of Mex. no regulations or safety measures put in place even though the 1st was 300 feet down. The governmt is not too big , it protects our food, meds, water, inspects imports that kill our pets, manufacture inferior products. If there is not governm to protect us the 2% will be in charge and more people die b/c they give less than a dam about people. Most of them LOVE MONEY NOT GOD. If the GOP wins the 2012 election we will be at war again, this time it will be Iran, another small nation with people of color. I have no clue as to what God they serve.

      Yes, Obama is the first to tell us we must change the way Washington works and tells it like it is. I do believe the internet and the protesters has made this the only option he has to save our nation, as the truth is coming from all areas. We must take our stand here to stop the corruption. It can not be done without large groups bringing the facts to the people, and insisting they be corrected.
