POTUS's schedule for Thursday, March 22, 2012

Day two of President Obama's energy tour will bring him to Cushing, Oklahoma a major trading hub for crude oil and the site where a key portion of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline would begin. As our White House correspondent Brianna Keilar reported this week, the president Thursday will announce a new executive order to streamline the permit process for infrastructure projects and a specific memorandum addressing what the administration now calls the "Cushing pipeline" or the southern part of the Keystone pipeline. Republicans have been critical calling the move purely political since this portion of the Keystone pipeline does not require presidential approval. In January the administration denied approval for the pipeline that would bring oil from the Canada's oil sands to the Texas coast.

Mr. Obama then returns to Ohio for his 19th trip as president to this critical election battleground state as he speaks at Ohio State University in Columbus.  He will highlight the university's energy related research and development. The president will return to the White House Thursday evening.

    @Judy...So true...and when history is written and it's been proven that his wisdom on everything he's stepped on up to accomplish on his own, even without the help of many of his own party, well not openly anyway, was in fact JUST WHAT THIS NATION NEEDED,....all of them Dems and Rethuglicans will be jumping out screaming they were there...they were a part of it...they helped in the processes of the transition to 'CHANGE in AMERICA!! Obama can't take the credit...WE did it!! They are so selfishly, VAIN!!

      Change to what, a country where everyone wants something free, the government tells you what to do, how and when, where to live, what you can it, what car you can drive and what doctors you can see in 1/2 year.
