Obama to Take Deficit Reduction Show on the Road

President Obama is doubling down on his fiscal policy speech Wednesday – widely panned, including here, as more a political than economic initiative – taking it on the road for three town hall meetings next week.

One of the events will be at Facebook HQ in Palo Alto as part of what appears to be a growing alliance between the social website and the White House.

The Big Question: If Obama’s speech was primarily political, should the DNC be pitching in for this travel?

Anyway, I’m sure, since he doesn’t get out to California every day, and since lots of his money is out there, we’ll have some fundraisers thrown in as well.

From the White House:

Next week, President Obama will travel to Northern Virginia, Palo Alto, California and Reno, Nevada to speak directly to the American people about his vision for reducing our debt and bringing down our deficit, based on the values of shared responsibility and shared prosperity.

On Tuesday, the President will hold a town hall in Northern Virginia. On Wednesday, the President will hold a town hall at Facebook Headquarters in Palo Alto, California. On Thursday, the President will conclude his three-day town hall tour in Reno, Nevada, discussing the ways the leaders in Washington can come together and meet the expectations of the American people.

  1. He’s going to “travel to Northern Virginia”? That’s not very specific. Are they going to hold the town hall in a specific town or just an open field somewhere in the country.

  2. Maybe it’s time for someone to ask FB CEO Mark Zuckerburg if he supports Obama’s re-election. If he does, should he inform FB users every time they log in that ad revenues derived from their personal info are going to the Obama Campaign? Has FB received an Obamacare waiver? Why has FB “friended” the 2012 Obama FB page?

    These are questions that would be asked – if we had a real Fourth Estate.

    Instead we have a Fifth Column.
