Obama Weekly address #2

Yesterday President Barack Obama put out his second weekly address, via youtube. The president makes it clear that washington politics must be put aside in order to pass the rescue package that is currently on its way to the senate. This after the bill failed to get a single republican vote in the house. I find it a bit humerous that there still seems to be such partisian politics going on at the same time as it appears that our president is about to nominate a republican to be his commerce secretary (Judd Gregg of NH). What I find interesting about this nomination, is that if it goes through, then that would remove another republican from the senate, and if governor Lynch (A democrat) appoints a democrat to that seat, that would give the democrats a filibuster-proof advantage in the senate, as well as control of the house, and executive branch. I wonder how much pressure will be on Governor Lynch to make that decision, and what the correct answer would be in that situation. This is going to make for an interesting week!

President Obama’s first Weekly address

So it’s still a bit interesting, every time I hear the words “President Obama” I can’t help but think that I can’t believe that it actually happened. I can’t believe how lucky we are to have a real president for once. I have made a commitment to be much more involved with our government and what it is doing. Here is the first of Obama’s weekly address’s which are posted over at www.whitehouse.gov If you haven’t gotten a chance to check out the new White House website, I would highly recommend checking it out. There is a ton of information available.

The only other thing that I would really like to find a better way to watch or at the least listen to every day is the daily white house press briefing, which is available from C-Span however, I’m still not sure what the rules are as far as re-posting c-span material, and I would like to find a way to get the audio direct from the source, and be able to use it as I see fit.
