Wednesday May 30, 2012 at The White House

Hurricane season starts on Friday. Sorry Florida. So to prepared, President Obama will attend an annual hurricane preparedness briefing in the Situation Room.

The President will then head to the EEOB to sign the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank. In a released statement the administration claims, "this important step will help American businesses create jobs here at home and sell their products around the world – all at no cost to taxpayers."

In the East Room later in the evening, the President will make remarks and host a Jewish American Heritage Month reception.

    Why isn't CNN asking Obama to help the real hero that got Osama?

      I'm not sure what you expect Obama to do?

      On another subject – the press keeps asking about the birth certificate – that is why the story continues. Has anyone heard Obama or anyone who represents Obama explain why he claimed to be born in Kenya when they introduced Obama's first book?

        I expect Obama to do what Obama has does best.
        Take the credit for things that go right and pass the blame and shame for things that go wrong, while doing very little either way to protect his plauseable denial clause proped up by the media.

    "Dr. Shakil Afridi, the guy who helped Obama track down Usama bin Laden, was sentenced to 33 years in prison for assisting a militant Islamic group"

    Assisting a militant Islamic group!?
    But, but.., Obama is not a muslim.., right?? I'm so confused....

        One would hope that Obama's proposal refres to cases of obvious neglect. A gun owner is responsible for securing his or her weapon. To me, that means when you're around it's under your control and when you're not around it's locked up where nobody can get it. Guess it depends on how Obama would define "securely stored." Unfortunately, I have to agree that in gun control parlance, "securely stored" probably means "always locked up where nobody can get it, including the owner."I'm also wondering how many firearms used in crimes are actually burglarized from private homes, stolen from cars, or (the liberals' favorite scenario) taken from their "overpowered" owners during self-defense situations. Anybody have statistics?

    Not on Obama's list:

    Yesterday's massacre that left more than 100 dead in Houla,Syria. including 32 women and 43 children.

      Okay Joe, it's another massacre and it looks like it's going to continue. Oh what should Obama do?? Should he go in and stop it, or should he just stay home and sit this one out?? Historically, for him, whichever way he decides would be wrong for you, and many others who sit at your computers and blog all of this humanitarian, caring BS!! As soon as he goes on over and tries to help calm the situation, you and Congress stands up in his chest with all 4 feet, and demean, diminish, and berate him for doing it!! You even start claiming America is tired of wars, and we aren't the police of the world!! Obama took it on his own will to go over there without 'begging our permission' screams Congress!! So what I mean is what the hell?? He's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't!! He may as well just flip a coin, whichever side it falls on, it's hell to pay for him!! That's because you all are spawn from Satan!!!

      Can everyone just smeimr down about the awful cast? I've only been visiting this site for a few days and I can't believe how many people think they know what makes a good Tarantino movie more than Quentin Tarantino. How about we give QT a little credit and wait until his movie is at least filmed before we write it off as terrible? If you had told me years ago that you were going to give John Travolta a prominent role in a cool crime movie, I would've assumed you were snorting heroin. One of the reasons to like QT is his fearless casting choices. Give the movie a chance!

      $20.00 fine for spreading leftist lies.

      His books make him look far worse than anything that has been said on Fox.
      You Fox bashers are a joke. If you actually watched Fox a little you would see that they present both sides with some pretty good people representing people like you who lean left i.e. Juan Williams, Alan Colmes, Kimberly Guilfoyle, etc.
      BTW, Charles Krauthammer is a regular on Fox. I see him as the best on any news show.

        What makes Charles K great is he just tells the truth...and he has a wonderful mind that retains those facts... the worst enemy of leftists are those who remember.

        John, I watched Fox myself throughout the first campaign in 2007 and 2008; even blogged on behalf of the now President, as they were trying their best to rip him apart even back then!! They kept it up til I had to get away from them before they made me take something and bust up my tv and throw it outside!! I have flipped back and forth often, ever since Obama won the Presidency. They are still sitting up there like frogs on toad stools, dissing and belittling the President and his administraition; his family and even his supporters!! You are the joke if you think any differently! Or either you think we're stuipid!! All of them on there are bobble-headed, talking-head trolls, who call themselves pundits, reporters, and journalists!! Commentators??? I could be a commentator, and so could you!! FAUXNEWS IS THE WORST!! It is the most racist, hateful, divisive cable'noise' station on TV!! They should be shut-down!!

      Jerry, just shut up!! Everybody who's been watching or reading you knows that as soon as he tries to set foot over there, or send some military over there, you'd be sitting up here spewing poison against him for doing that!! Syria, may as well be on their own, if it's really left up to you and you know it! I remember your bashing him about participating in the last humanitarian effort, right after you got through bashing him for taking so long to go in!! Pathetic!!
