White House day ahead: Irish Prime Minister, Middle East Trip
President Obama departs for the Middle East on Tuesday evening, but before he takes off he'll have a day full of ceremony. In the mid-morning, the president meets with Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny in the Oval Office, with a pool spray at the top of the meeting. Later the two leaders will attend a St. Patrick’s Day lunch at the United States Capitol. The President’s remarks at the lunch are private but there will be coverage of the entertainment.
Back at the White House in the early evening, Obama and the First Lady will host a St. Patrick’s Day reception in the East Room where both the president and the Irish Prime Minister will speak.
At 7:45 the president departs the White House for the Middle East – the first international trip of his second term:
We should let Joe Biden meet with the Irish prime minister again, that was funny.
No wonder this administration wants to go green. Apparently all "fuel" is the same to them.
cartoon bubble...... Netanyahu swapping the diesel / petro labels at the pump, then seen giggling as The King's limo breaks down............
Apparently MO wanted to introduce her new "Let's Move + Push Program"...
OK, I am weary of 3 day old stories! Nothing CNN about the trip to Israel? Nothing about the protests by the Palestinians? Is this the "No news is good news" approach? What the heck? Where is everybody? I'd hate to see this forum die out and that is exactly what it appears to be happening!
Same here Steveo. I check in each day to see if there is anything new to talk about. We haven't seen anything from December or Jean (hope all is okay).
Did anyone notice Bidens Hotel bills ????
Yeah I did! How does anyone spend $550,000 for 1 night in Paris. I mean I get the security and stuff, but it was one night, how much security does the VP need? Who wants to harm Joe Biden... what does he do?
Its been one bonehead move after another with this admin, i think cnn has caught on !!!!!!!!!!
Caramon, I too hope all is well with our blogging buddies!
Anyone watch Jake Tapper's new show yet?
@Marie – I too find Biden hilarious – cannot understand how why aor where he could the VP of any country and his wife is a total joke !
So today is March 26 and the White House day is still on March 19 – guess not much being done at the White House
Somebody could have ana-lyzed the recent trip to Israel and Jordan. There are stories to be told! CNN is just not telling them!
Biden latest $325,000 in limos bills, this admin is just such a joke, once i could see, but i cant believe there were that many stupid voters to put these inepts ones in office for term 2, enjoy it you voted for it, by the way king bammy and fam are on vacation again !!!
Exactly, other news agencies reported on it. It's as if they have no one updating this section anymore.
How does 1 person spend that much money on limos? Did they have $2000 dollar a bottle wine in these limos... what? I don't even understand how it is possible.
CNN needs to catch up. They do 2 stories in a day and then nothing for about a week.
What is going on with the Saudi's and this president in the midst of the Boston bombing? Why did Obama meet with a Saudi leader yesterday, which was not included in official White House meeting list, and why is a Saudi "person of interest" in the bombing being deported for national security??? What's going on? Another cover-up?
Quick–Gas up Air Force One–The engines are getting cool–My vacation isn't over yet–Not until 2017–
Wow, what back breaking schedule. How does this Gentlemen do it? There has to be two of him to cover such a heavy schedule.
