POTUS Day Ahead

President Obama will hold his second public signing ceremony in two days on Thursday. After signing the STOCK Act on Wednesday, he’ll turn his attention to the JOBS Act, which he will sign in the Rose Garden at 2:10 PM.

The White House is touting the bill as another example of bipartisanship. When asked if President Obama agreed with economists’ criticism that the JOBS Act would diminish investor protections, possibly increasing more get-rich schemes, Press Secretary Jay Carney said the president supported the bill after Senate Democrats added certain amendments.

“[The bill] includes at its heart provisions that the President initially put forward for consideration by Congress,” Carney said. “And he's pleased that even in an environment where getting bipartisan cooperation is very, very difficult, we have seen enough of it to enable us to pass two pieces of legislation that the President called for.”

The rest of the president’s day will be away from cameras. He has his usual briefings and weekly lunch with Vice President Biden, but in the afternoon he’ll be hosting a private screening of “To Kill a Mockingbird.” CNN White House Producer Adam Aigner-Treworgy previewed the event here.

The president will spend the evening campaigning with two events at local DC hotels. These will be the first campaign events since President Obama formally became the Democratic nominee for President. Neither one is on camera.

The White House press briefing is schedule to begin at 11:30 AM.

      You wanted him to defend the person who the Dems threw out there – who wanted free birth control for her and her friends? You libs live in another world.
      BTW, you libs do know this incident this incident sent Rush's ratings through the roof right?
      But, what is important here is BO's racord (or lack there of). People like you use the talking points to try to deflect the fact that we have a president that has been a failure, especially given how Obamacare will be ruled against the law. 3.5 year of spending, 20% more spending than when he entered office. The new strategy has BO avoiding his so called achievements – instead he cries havoc about the GOP and the house budget , as well as the supreme court at the same time he has his boy Carney hitting all the news programs with more divisive speak.

    CNN – nothing on Uncle Obama? I understand it doesn't fit your agenda, but it is a story about the presidents illegal uncle who was caught drunk driving. He had/has a SS card and a license, not to mention that he was and continues to work in this country.

      Nothing either on the Muslim Brotherhood members from Egypt being personally invited to the white house. Looks like Egypt's next president will be from the Muslim Brotherhood as well, of course this is probably what Obama wanted all along. We know what the Muslim Brotherhood's record on women's rights is and then Obama turns around and rolls out the red carpet for them, he's one big hypocrite.

    HYPOCRISY ... on the same day, meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood, who totally abuses women, while at the same time, pandering to women in front of the cameras, and accusing your political opponents of being anti-woman. This lying snake will do, or say anything to get reelected !!!

    Hey simpletons! President Obama is concerned with the futures and the 'real' issues concerning ALL women! You loons probably hadn't heard yet, but as quiet as it's kept, the Muslim/islamic religion also include women!! I guess you instigating male-chauvinists thought they were all men! LOL!! Some of them may have their own heinous ideas on how they should treat their women,...but I've known 'Christians' right here in America who have treated their women just as bad!! That behavior is not isolated to just Muslim Men ! The insensitive, destructive, demeaning behavior is not found to be limited to any particular religion! They all need to be 'pulled on the mat' and get a good talking to, along with some admonishments for change! How will that ever happen if a dialogue is never opened to do that?? Not to speak of the need for President Obama to communicate with them on the issues that involve Egypt and Israel, as he tries to diplomatically negotiate a compromise of possible agreement; also finding some common ground and common interests!! That's what 'civilized' people do!!! Operative word is....CIVILIZED!!
