As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Schedule || Monday, July 9, 2012

Let’s take a look at this schedule for a second. Obama is planning to spend about two hours being president.

The press pool doesn’t have to arrive at the White House until 10:00 am, which means there’s no chance of anything happening until then – at the earliest – which means Obama is probably in the White House Residence in his pajamas eating oatmeal.

He starts work at about 10:30 am or so, looks like. And by noon he’ll be having lunch and prepping for his interviews, mostly with anchors who broadcast to markets in swing states, with New Orleans thrown in for cover.

And then he’ll be fundraising.

10:45 am || Receives the Presidential Daily Briefing
11:15 am || Meets with senior advisers
2:00 pm || Participates in interviews with local TV anchors from New Orleans; Manchester, New Hampshire; Louisville, Kentucky; Miami; Raleigh, North Carolina; Davenport, Iowa; Milwaukee; and Las Vegas.
4:15 pm || Attends a fundraiser; The Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Washington
5:20 pm || Attends a second fundraiser; The Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Washington

All times Eastern
Live stream of Carney briefing at 12:30 pm

  1. Two hours? You’re being overly generous, Keith. I only count 30 minutes.

    For the record, the term ‘senior advisors’ is code for ‘campaign staff’. Any time he meets with senior advisors, it always has something to do with helping him get re-elected.

  2. Ha! Don’t forget, this is after a relaxing weekend at Camp David. But, he usually rolls in late on Mondays. I often see the late morning start time for the press pool and I think how much they will hate it when there’s a real president in the Oval Office and the work day will finally once again begin at a normal hour!

    Over the weekend, I saw his schedule for this week and when I saw a few days with “meetings at the WH” (which is code for little to nothing, maybe a quick photo opp or a fundraiser in DC), I said he’ll probably do a few fundraisers in hotels in DC this week. He really is such a lazy PO(tu)S. His schedule has always been a joke.

    Take a look at this easy week he has ahead – NOTHING but campaigning and fundraising:

    Schedule for the Week of July 9, 2012

    On Monday, the President will attend meetings at the White House.

    On Tuesday, the President will travel to Cedar Rapids, Iowa to deliver remarks at a campaign event and will return to Washington, DC in the evening.

    On Wednesday and Thursday, the President will attend meetings at the White House.

    On Friday, the President will travel to Virginia for campaign events before returning to Washington, DC in the evening.

    On Saturday, the President will travel to Virginia for campaign events before returning to Washington, DC in the evening.

  3. Welcome back, Keith, nice to see you again.
    I found an interesting video on Hot Air this morning , ” George W Bush and the warriors “. It´s – believe it or not- a feature made by Piers Morgan for CNN, maybe Morgan is trying to get at least some interest for his disastrous show. Anyhow, it´s stunning to see the relation between W and the veterans. It looks genuine to me. Compare that with Obamas shows where he uses veterans as props. He never connects at all, just pretends.

    • Swedishlady, I work often with disabled vets and active military who liaison with them. Should W’s name come up, its been 100% positive, even from those who disagree with him politically. Bam’s name comes up, its usually silence, a glare, particularly from active duty types. These men and women can see thru the b/s.

    • Swedish Lady, I am retired and so is my husband and we both work on a base with active and retirees… Let’s just say there aren’t many Kool Aid drinkers in the military. Now other Civil Service employees, that is another story…

  4. Keith,
    I seem to recall that years ago the MSM made a big deal out of GW Bush not holding enough open press conferences. When was the last time President Obama actually took 30 to 45 minutes of unscripted questions from anyone in the media?

    Perhaps Mr. Carney can give us some idea when we can expect Dear Leader to do something other than pose and preen.

    • Aww, not come on… do you really expect Obama to be held to the same standard W was? It hasn’t happened in almost 4 years, why would they now?

  5. Let’s review last weeks schedule too, Kieth. He spent a long weekend at Camp David – until the fourth on Wednesday. He showed up for a few showy appearances, then went off campaigning for a day and a half before he returned to Camp David.

    And now this. He’s on an extended vacation, is what he’s doing.

  6. And why dosent the Romney campaign EVER mention Obama’s “weak” “non-working” schedule???!!!

    (we could make up some pretty good campaign ads I bet…)

  7. This is a Good news/Bad news calendar. The Bad news is that POTUS is back “working”. The Good news is that he is staying in the WH/DC area so we taxpayers save a LOT of money today for Air Force One flight time, etc.

    • They’re slowing down because no one wants to be seen with him anymore or give anything. I can hear Axelrod on the phone, “But it’s his first birthday party, why not celebrate with the Pres? He’d be happy to stop by for a few minutes and wish whats his name a happy birthday. Would it be okay if we asked the guests to donate his gifts to O? What a memorable birthday party it would be!”
