POTUS's schedule for Friday June 22: The Sunshine State

President Obama heads south for a day trip to Florida today. He'll be speaking at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) at Disney World in Orlando which is where Mitt Romney spoke yesterday to the same conference where he had a mixed reaction from the audience. Obama's remarks today come a week after announcing the changes in immigration policy for young immigrants. He also won 67% of the Hispanic vote in 2008 so he's likely to get a better review from the conference attendees. After his remarks in Orlando, he heads to Tampa, where he'll have a campaign event at the Hillsborough Community College- this time likely targeting younger voters. He returns to DC late this evening.

      At the Obama Latino luncheon in FL, the SS asked the attendees to eat their lunch quickly, and turn over their forks to the SS, as these utensils were a "security risk". "I don' trust you, but vote for me."

        Mr Berg, It's probably a good idea to set up a retsigration page for people who are wishing to attend. On this page, you should have a donations section, to raise money to ensure shuttle buses and train fares are supplied to all who wish to attend. The website will help people guage the size of the movement, and the more people they see signed on, the more they will feel that they too should register to protest. It's time to get serious, and not do this in a half hearted manner. Make sure the people know that you are willing to help get them to the event, that they will be fed at the event, and that they will have protection at the event, ie, hiring of your own security forces to ensure your saftey (never been done before in a protest, and I have never heard any laws suggesting this is illegal). Think smarter, Mr Berg, not harder. What you need is;-1)Registration of interest website, detailing time, place, and collection of donations for transport, security, and refreshments/hotdogs.2)Logistics team to put together the event security strategy, the distribution of information, and transportation.3)Unemployed volunteers to keep the people refreshed with water and hotdogs. They don't have to be unemployed, but unemployed people have more time to share right now.4)Respected members of the community, to talk at the event, such as ex politicians, and business owners. They must show clearly why Obama's presidency is not qualified, and why it is more than dangerous to the American people.If build it they will come .Emeritus

    President Romney will restore REAL dignity to the occupancy of the people's house. (And we won't have to spend thousands a month for that silly photo-op garden - LOL.).

      Showing what a moron you are again? I'm sure there is nothing more satisfying than showing everyone you are a fool.

      Did you know that George Washington who never lived in the White House laid the groundwork for the first White House gardens? John Adams (and family) were the first occupants who not only planted a garden, but also grazed sheep on the White House lawn. Eleanor Roosevelt planted a WWII Victory Garden. The Rose Garden was planted by Ellen Wilson, The Jacqueline Kennedy Garden dedicated by Lady Bird Johnson, and the East Garden, there is a Children's Garden, Pat Nixon was the first to open the White House Gardens for tours....and on and on. Gardens are a tradition at the White House.

      I'm very happy to see the First Lady plant a new vegetable garden, and I certainly thank her for writing a book the proceeds from which will help fund the National Park Foundation which maintains the gardens at the White House.

      If anything, some of the right-wing clueless idiots posting here remind me of the bully boys insulting that elderly school bus monitor.

    RS, CA: yeah the stables will cost much less than a garden. thousands a month for a garden where do you get this crap

      Except the stables will be on Romney's land and he will pay for them. Unlike Obama where we pay for almost every penny spent by him and his immediate family (i.e. vaca's, golf, etc.) , his extended family and his illegal aunt and uncle.

    I must have missed something. Where in this schedule does he spend any time at all doing his job? I see where he's spending our money to chase more money for his re-election campaign, but no time spent doing the job he's running for.

      The president, works for us 24/7 and 365 days per year. He e does his job wherever he is and with whatever else he may be doing at the time.

      Mitt isn't going to be that generous to the hoi polloi....you will get a carport, only if you are already independently wealthy, and could otherwise afford it anyway.

    Just a few more months of this fraud-in-chief and then real leadership...a present with a real resume and love for America and ALL Americans.

    lets see some articles on obama's gun running and lies and cover up...cnn is censoring everything written on these blogs this morning about it.

      Too late! The name "International Arms Dealer" has already been taken by George W. Bush.

      Bookslinger, I don't think the Obama campaign is the first thing the pshrae regime change brings to mind.And don't worry, if only non-conservative Republicans vote for McCain (the only kind you would be willing to blame for his possible failures), I doubt there's much chance he gets elected.Or is it that regardless of how they vote, nothing bad that happens can ever be laid at the feet of conservatives?

    Yes....As usual the "jerry" has another vapid, ignoramous remark for the ages. How clever....calling our President a "Gun Runner" I thought you had taped out on the stupidity but look you've been able to out-do yourself yet again.

    . I have another frminag on the problem. Candidates are evaluated along two lines: their record (i.e., what they have done in the past) and their rhetoric (i.e., what they promise to do in the future). A candidate must lock up the base with his/her record and then attract independents with rhetoric. Obama did this, whereas McCain never could. Party loyalists demand allegiance in return for their enthusiastic support fundraising, GOTV, etc. Having tracked their candidates, they are intimately familiar with voting records and other accomplishments. Note that by party loyalists I mean not just operatives and chairpeople but those everyday folks who vote a straight ticket. Independents and other uncommitteds probably haven't been following party X's candidate closely and don't know his/her record well. What they hear is mostly speeches and promises from the campaign trail i.e. the rhetoric. They are more swayed by promises than are party loyalists, who believe that candidates' true preferences are revealed in their pre-campaign record. Thus a winning strategy is to lock up one's party base (and nomination) with a record that the party likes, but focus one's rhetoric on centrist proposals that appeal to independents and other undecideds. Obama executed this strategy perfectly. His voting record is strongly aligned with the Democratic party, so loyalists felt they could trust him. His rhetoric, however, has from an early stage been aimed at centrists and non-partisans. True, he explicitly shifted several policy positions from the primary to the general, but I think the above still holds. McCain, on the other hand, with his history of bucking the GOP, never had the party's full support. They knew they could not count on him to push the agenda and failed to produce for him (with weaker party turnout than in '04). Perhaps because he sensed this unease, he tried to use rhetoric that would re-ingratiate him with the party I'll include the Palin selection in this which did garner more base support but at the expense of the middle. What the GOP needs (in 2016, assuming Obama is smart enough not to screw things up the next four years) is someone with an unassailable party line record who can talk to more than the base. Yes, we're looking at you, Bobby Jindal. Huckabee, stick to your talk show.
