    President’s Schedule – November 12, 2012

    No public schedule.

  • Russell

    Doug, FOX is 300,000+ over the next runner up. Where did you get YOUR information?

  • Jeff

    I just had to dig up the old photo of President George W. Bush, when, in the hours after Hurricane Katrina struck the US mainland on October 29, 2005, George Bush flew to California to have a birthday cake with Senator John McCain, and take funny photos laughing together while Americans were quite literally drowning in New Orleans.

    And what did President Obama do after Hurricane Sandy struck the east coast, destroying large swaths of New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and more? Less than two days later, President Obama flew to the scene to comfort the victims and get a first-hand briefing on the extent of the damage.

    Maybe you should go? :lol:

    This admin is allowing FEMA to do their job with dedicated and competent leadership. Not a guy that watched dancing horses from the long list of bush Kronies. The Gov. Of NJ seems satisfied. The Gov. Of NY and Mayor of NYC seem satisfied, seems just you and the sour grapes gang are looking for anything to b-tch about. B-itch away….it’s all white noise now Obama won in a landslide.

    Schedule for the Week of November 12, 2012

    On Monday, the President has no public events scheduled in observance of Veterans Day.

    Seems hosting Vetrans at the WH on Vetrans Day is some how offensive to Sore Sour Righties.

  • tony

    The 50-48 victory by Obama was won because though the economy is still down and US has high wrong track polls –what saved Obama is the perception that most still blamed Bush.Exit polls expressed that after 4 years, I wonder if all holds and the economic numbers still down– will it change after 8 years?

    @coffee steve
    do you remember me saying the race would be called by 10 pm ?

  • Ratboy

    @ Jeff

    You really are gone beyond help! What i posted came right from the presidents web site for the schedule for the day!!

    Grow the hell up!

  • tony

    @Jeffie–Just keep gloating, there are tough times ahead for all of us.When Obama goes over the cliff all including you will be going down for the ride.

  • Coffee Steve

    Quick Lunch Break…


    Yes I do, good call :-)


    Chores? That’s why I had alot of kids LOL


    Those poor folks on the East Coast are going to get even more, another NorEaster may form soon and a blast of artic air as well :-(

  • Jeff

    “Grow the hell up”………… Mmmmkay?

    Try including the full truth for a change. Its Vetrans Day, Stop lying man-child.


    Regarding the Papa John’s pizza BS…
    First he said OHHH BOO WHOO! I have to increase pizza prices .15 cents due to Obama care. Mmmmkay??? I’d pay a dollar more to ensure a family has health care. He’s been raising prices for every other reason under the sun.

    So! Lets cut hours for Obama care for basically minimum wage workers.


    Give AWAY 2 million FREE pizzas.


    Host Lavish parties at the owners multiple million dollar home golf course.


    Donate Millions to political superpacs and Politicians to further one mans interests.

    F- That!

    But lets be clear, I don’t buy pizzas from big chains like this douchebag owns. I support the little mom & papa shops because they taste a lot better and deserve my business. Plus from past experience Papa Johns pizza sux!!! The sauce is too sweet.

  • Jeff

    @tony, your party had the same lines when Clinton won a second term……whatever!

  • Coffee Steve

    Quick Headlines

    *Egyptian jihadist calls for destruction of Sphinx, Pyramids…

    Yeah?? We’ll, we’ll break your nose Bud :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    *Petraeus Lover may be the source of leaks on Libya

    Is this like a soap opera or what?

  • Coffee Steve

    Back to school…

    I just think we all should admit both parties stink and none of them knows what in the sam heck they are doing


  • tony

    @Jeff–This will kill you,my fam has owned a non chain pizza place in Michigan for 59 years. Thank you for supporting mom and pop pizza places.

  • Mark

    The libs were celebrating all week, trying to keep their euphoria alive by watching the pathetic clowns at MSNBC. The rest of us couldn’t watch another minute of the non-stop analyzing and speculating about the election, which will most-certainly be the final nail in the coffin for this once-great nation.

    Step 1 – click on link below
    Step 2 – read the page
    Step 3 – realize that there is NOTHING on the presidents schedule at this time.
    Step 4 – stop with all the vulgarity as you post


  • 1966

    @coffee steve
    didn’t you say you would pay 1 millon dollars tp the winner?

  • JM

    This is the first time I’ve been on here since the election and the last. Our country is down the tubes. The libs and takers have taken over and I’m tired of hearing it. Just remember when what happens to our country is like Europe, I DIDN’T VOTE FOR THIS ASS.

  • Jeff

    @tony, I’m sure you fam’s biz pizza would blow Papa John, Dominos & Pizza Hut away!
