The Obama Morning News || May 16, 2011

President Obama is methodically rebuilding his grassroots election army, the Associated Press reports.

POLITICO says Obama is polling pretty well. But the publication also reports that Obama has a dearth of outside defenders willing to go to bat for him.

Following his meeting Friday with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, Obama on Sunday will address the Israeli lobbying group AIPAC. Newsweek looks at John Kerry’s trip to the Middle East and ask’s if he’s in line to become Secretary of State.

House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said they’re ready to make a deal with Obama on the debt limit, but they’re not offering any concessions.

Newt Gingrich came out against the House GOP Medicare plan, calling it “right-wing social engineering.” Ron Paul won’t win the GOP nomination, but his ideas might.

The author of a biography of Obama’s mother talks to the Daily Caller.

And Shirley Sherrod is returning the the Department of Agriculture. Not to her old job, though – she’ll help the agency improve its civil rights record.

  1. Thank you Keith. Lots of interesting news today, but the articles on his campaign efforts takes the cake. Can’t believe how tone deaf Obama and his campaign crew are. People are angry out here in flyover country. You can almost see the fabric of this society being torn apart at the seams, and his constant campaigning is only stoking that anger. We are seeing everything we believe in, everything our ancestors fought and died for being ripped apart by this wannabe dictator and his band of merry marxists. He is in for a rude awakening if he believes everything the sycophant press is telling him.
