President Obama will have at least three bilateral meetings while in France this week for the G-20, and he plans to end the week with a press conference.
On Thursday, he’ll meet with French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel and on Friday he will meet with Argentine President Cristina Kirchner.
The President’s press conference will be on Friday, before he returns to Washington.
Thanks Lisa – you have to wonder how Mittens will cope with the pressure if he makes it as far as the Presidential campaign ……. 😉
Hi everyone, I’ve just added a section on the site for videos of your very, very, very most loved speeches by the President – you’ll see the link on the sidebar on the right. I’ll update it over the next few days, but would be huuUUuugely grateful if you could let me know in the comments (here) which speeches were your favorites – I’ll be be happy to include them. Thanks people.

President Barack Obama walks back to the Oval Office
Politicususa: On Fox and Friends, guest Laura Ingraham kicked off FNC’s Easter attack on Barack and Michelle Obama by suggesting that Obama is full of ego for handing out autographed commemorative Easter eggs as part of the White House Easter Egg Roll. Ingraham claimed that Laura Bush never did this….Only the Obamas would be so arrogant as to give away autographed Easter Eggs to the kids:
In fact, the tradition of handing out autographed Easter Eggs at the White House event began with…….Ronald Reagan (“Autographed eggs were hidden in the Egg hunt for kids to find during President Ronald Reagan’s reign. By affixing signatures to the commemorative egg, President George W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush became the first to do so”):

Desperate wingnuts sure love embarrassing themselves, eh? 😆
Fred reminded me of similar previous outrages:
‘Obama has no class – he puts his feet on the Oval Office desk! Can you EVER remember a Republican President doing that?!’
‘Obama has no class – he throws a ball around the Oval Office! Can you EVER remember a Republican President doing that?!’
‘Obama has no class – sometimes he doesn’t wear a jacket in the Oval Office! Can you EVER remember a Republican President doing that?!’
‘Obama has no class – he wore flip-flops in Hawaii! Next thing he’ll be wearing Crocs in the White House!”
‘You know, Obama is so classless it wouldn’t surprise me if he eats his meals off the sacred Oval desk!”
