In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Carney Briefing is Cancelled

I assume the White House doesn’t want to talk about things like the immigration bill today, which makes sense. Likely they will offer up federal national security and law enforcement types to take questions from the press. I will keep you posted.

Nevertheless, in a meeting newly added to the schedule, Obama will confer at the White House with Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) on immigration. And he’s keeping his appointment to celebrate NASCAR champion Brad Keselowski on the South Lawn.

Earlier today, Obama ordered flags at the White House and all other federal building to be flown at half mast.

  1. If Brad Keselowski had good sense, he would claim a debilitating migraine or feign an appendecitis attack that would prevent him from attending a meaningless ceremony at the WhiteHouse, and send his regrets to the President.

  2. If Preezy Revenge (h/t Susan) had any internal fortitude, he’d say “To Hell with the Sequester, the White House is again open to the public!” However……he doesn’t have any………

  3. Why was the meeting added? It has NOTHING to do with what happened yesterday.

    Will he still have his working lunch with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed of the United Arab Emirates?

    1. Photo op for Obama. As for the NASCAR guy, as Rick W said, Millers Lite is his sponsor. Probably put pressure on him to go. Does anyone know if Millers Lite is a supporter of Obama?
