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

Obama Morning News || April 6, 2011

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.

  1. RE: Budget. Hoorah for Paul Ryan. 4tr is not enough, but its a start … if we can keep Congress from spending more money. Good to know that Obama, when the kitchen gets hot from the budget battle …. is leaving the White House.

    RE: Shimon Peres visit. Did he enter through the kitchen? Was he asked to wait in the foyer? I don’t understand *why* Israel puts up with an anti-Semite in their midst. Peres should have turned down the visit until after the election. There is *nothing* Israel can gain from meeting Obama (except a large knife, stuck squarely in the back).

    RE: SF Fundraiser. Sheesh, I was hoping that there would be a huge GLBT protest against the Messiah, but with DADT all but gone, that probably won’t take place. The GLBT masses have now been given their pacifier which they will suck on until they are in need of something else.

  2. Oh, they have already started in on Ryan…he will make us seniors eat cat food, etc.(Nancy). Hey, my cats aren’t hurting. Anyhow, my AOL screen showed a person in depressing shadow…Ryan takes aim at old and sick. AOL–I guess that’s Arianna now…Man, we have our work cut out for us. By the way, Arianna just fired all the AOL writers–but said they could continue for free if they want.
