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

Obama Schedule || Week of January 9, 2011

From the White House:

On Monday, the President will welcome President Nicolas Sarkozy of France to the White House.  As France assumes the Presidency of the G-8 and the G-20 for 2011, the President looks forward to working with President Sarkozy to sustain the global economic recovery.  The two Presidents will also discuss a broad range of current foreign policy and security issues, including Lebanon, Ivory Coast, Iran, Sudan, Afghanistan, the Middle East, and counterterrorism cooperation.

On Tuesday, the President will travel to Schenectady, New York to visit the birthplace of General Electric. The site is home to GE’s largest energy division, including steam turbines, generators, wind and solar, and the future home of GE’s advanced battery manufacturing facility.  The President will tour the site with GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt and he will make remarks on the importance of growing the economy and making America more competitive by investing in jobs, innovation and clean energy. The GE plant in Schenectady is a direct beneficiary of GE’s power turbine deal with India announced during the President’s trip last November.

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

On Friday, the President will attend Ambassador Holbrooke’s funeral in Washington, D.C.

  1. re: the Prez’s factory tours
    It must go like this in the WH; let’s send MrO to different factories to meet the workers and give a nice speech and America will see that he’s involved and concerned about the state of the economy.
    It goes like this in the factory city; Traffic is stalled, life is disrupted because the Prez is in town to visit and things won’t be back to normal until he’s gone. The general opinion is that he should stay in DC, quit flitting around and get back to work.

  2. GE Schenectady won’t be closing in 6 months. I want to know, since I work there, how I can get to shake the president’s hand. The whole route is set out and doesn’t look like the president is going to be doing a lot of walking around.
