POTUS is up and out of the house early

President Obama takes off for a two-day swing across the country with a mix of official and campaign-related events. His first stop is in Colorado Springs, CO to speak at the Air Force Academy's graduation. We'll see if he refers to the troop withdrawal from Afghanistan in his speech to the graduates. His remarks are available live at 12:25p ET.

The rest of his day will be spent focusing on raising money for his campaign. He holds a fundraiser in Denver for the Obama For America Futuro Campaign and speaks live at 5:30p ET. We'll see if he continues the back-and-forth with the Romney campaign over Romney's experience as Massachusetts Governor and also his time with Bain Capital. We'll hear from him one more time on Wednesday when he flies to San Jose for a couple of fundraisers. He'll hold an event at a private residence which is closed to the press but later he speaks at a fundraiser at the Fox Theater in Redwood City, CA. Those remarks will begin at 12:15a ET.

    This one is for CNN.
    I, and several of my liberal friends have conducted a test. We post almost the same posts on this CNN site. One of the post is worded as if it anti-right, the other similar post is worded as if it is anti-left. Half of the anti-left posts are blocked by the moderator. None of the anti-right posts are blocked. We have done this with almost 30 different posts in the last 3 weeks.

      And why would I think this is not a ruse?

      if you believe he is liberal, then you believe all of the news on fox is the truth

        I assume you can provide us with ONE lie you heard on Fox?
        It is obvious you libs do not even look at Fox. Unlike MSDNC, Fox actually has award winning journalists, many of them with "left bias", including people from the Huff Post, NPR, Time, and more. I laugh every time I see you libs, who are totally ignorant on the subject because you do not bother to watch, cut down Fox. There is a reason they are the highest rated news show on TV. There is also a reason MSDNC is in the pits rating wise.

        The Daily Show has great rating too, but I wouldn't get my news from them. FOX is not news! It's propiganda!

      Now that's a hard one John. I certainly don't believe that. As many anti-left posts I've been debating against, I can't tell!! CNN seems to let some of the worst hateful ones out on here!! Including the stupid anti-left videos that one of your friends like to post taking up so much space. Furthermore, if you ask me, CNN may as well merge into FOX because I don't see them being much different! Hadn't seen them being of an 'anti-right' opinion for some time now. During the last campaign, like you had FOX, I had CNN. Since the election, they have literally become an extension of FOX!! So why in the world would they block anti-left posts, when anyone who watches them knows they've 'evolved' into a 'RIGHT' media station?? They try to be subtle about it, but we see it.

      So what is it you think you have dicovered. Since you conducted such a scientific experiment? It's a compuer that screens the posts. i doubt it has anything to do with right or left.

    People. Try it and you will see.
    Liz, do you watch CNN? Those people love Obama. It is not unusual to have their on air folks promoting Obama and his policies.
    Liz, you, and people like you, are so far left you think the middle is far right. Let us test that theory – where do you think Obama falls right now? Far left? Middle? Lean right?

    Try ABC, they definitely censor posts, while NBC who you would think would do it, doesn't at all.

    So, given the posts I see here – none of you folks have had a post blocked? Given the number of mine that are, which was the reason I tested the process, I am amazed that none of you have has a post blocked.

    Anyone noticed there was no report of the Primaries in Arkansas and Kentucky for Democrats? Mr Wolfe who is running against Obama got 42 % of the vote in Arkansas and 47% were undecided if Kentucky, LOL seems like not everyone is drinking the Obama Kool-Aid.

      We didn't see much on the convict almost beating Obama either. The states that rely on coal as an industry now hate Obama for what he has done to that industry. We are also not seeing the Cupp/Hustler story. I assume we will not. Two weeks of the Fluke/birth control issue by CNN. Do you libs want to tell us again how CNN leans right?
