    • One would think that if the WH could alter the official record and text of President Hollande’s public speech about Islamic Terrorists they could manufacture a few syllabi. For the record, of course. For the legacy.

  1. In the afternoon, the President will host a reception for Greek Independence Day in the East Room; the Vice President will also attend.

    What EXACTLY does Greek Independence mean these days….
    H

    • I was in Greece once on that day I think it was and I asked the people standing next to me at the parade. They said it was in celebration of the day that Greece saved Europe from the Nazis and liberated themselves.

      Of course, that could have been another Independence Day when the Greeks saved themselves and Europe from the Nazis.

  2. I wonder if Stoltenberg and the Combatant Commander and Military “Leadership” prepped themselves for the military genius of Obama and watched the Fox News/Brett Baier special.

  3. More info regarding Obummer’s trip to Chicago on Thursday:

    WASHINGTON – Both President Barack Obama and his Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland have Chicago roots and on Thursday, Obama will discuss the importance of filling the vacancy on the nation’s highest court at the University of Chicago Law School, where he once taught.

    The town-hall style conversation with law students and faculty will “continue to shed light on why it is so important that everyone does their job and give Judge Garland a fair hearing and an up-or-down vote,” White House Strategic Communications Advisor Rachel Racusen told the Chicago Sun-Times.

    Obama’s visit to the law school where he taught constitutional law between 1992 and 2004 comes as Republican Senate leaders are blocking the nomination of Garland, a federal appellate judge here who was born in Chicago and raised in north suburban Lincolnwood.

    Obama wants to use his U. of C. session — his first public event to talk about the Supreme Court slot since he nominated Garland on March 16 — to show the bigger, broader context of what is at stake, Racusen said.

    The president wants to discuss, at a school where he has a deep connection, “the Supreme Court, the integrity of it as an institution and the importance of it for our country’s judicial system.”

    He will talk about Garland and his qualifications and the importance of him being able to join the court as “quickly as possible to get their business done,” Racusen said.

    In taking “the case directly to law students,” Racusen said, the president is aiming “for a conversation focused on the importance of the courts, the integrity of the courts and in that context talk about the importance of Judge Garland’s nomination.”

    The White House is waging a robust campaign, helped on the outside by a team of former Obama administration aides, to press the case for the Senate to act.

    “This is the president getting out of D.C., going to his hometown in a place where Judge Garland also has roots, to a school where the president himself and Judge Garland also have connections,” Racusen said.

      This is the President twisting arms on his way to a weekend of golf in California

      • Ron in Ohio Sez:

        Yeah, what gracepc said!

        To fully understand ya’ gotta’ use a bit of “Obungler-logic” – It goes something like this;

        “Let’s see, Since I’m going to Chiraq and I’ll be so close to Californicate anyway, I might as well hop on over there, drain some more money outta’ them zombies and play some more golf. I mean, it’s been – How long? 12 days! Since I played golf. Really? That long? And I know that it’s been 2 weeks since I took Mooch, my family and that freeloading mother-in-law on another treasury depleting fun trip. Yeah I’m overdue.”

        It’s great to be the king!

    • Of course the Senate has a role and a duty but it does not have an obligation to exercise those now. I do suspect this will end with a worse nominee from Hillary–but that’s politics–throw the dice.
