Republicans and the White House each dug in Tuesday, as the chances for a government shutdown seemed to grow. The White House believes the budget plan by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), which is shaves some $6 trillion from President Obama’s own budget, is the perfect political target.
Meanwhile, the GOP is strongly opposing Obama’s nominee to be Office of Management and Budget deputy director because, well, she has no budget experience and this might be a sign Obama is not serious about the budget, according to The Daily Caller.
Fox News takes a look at whether Obama has kept his campaign promises.
Obama met with Israeli President Shimon Peres to talk about a peace plan, and the remarkably few details to come out of the meeting suggest something substantive may be occurring. The White House sharply criticized Pakistan’s effort against Islamists within its borders.
And Obama on April 20 will hold a “town hall” meeting on Facebook in Silicon Valley and then head to San Francisco for a pricey fundraiser.
