Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Nov 15, 2012, 04:49 PM

Have you ever wondered what President Obama is doing?

As it happens, the President's daily schedule is posted at the link below every day:

http://www.whitehouse.gov/schedule

You can also go look up past days' schedules.

Today, for example, the schedule is mostly his trip to visit New York and New Jersey to check on progress since Sandy. That's what he did today. This evening, he'll be screening the new film "Lincoln" with notable guests from the cast and crew of the film.

Perhaps I'll go to the link first thing every morning and post his schedule for the day, so we can all see what is occupying his time. There doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in the President's activities on DU, so maybe we need to have a look at what he is actually doing.

2. It seems that the schedule is only of major events during the day.

I'm sure there are many other things going on, like the daily national security briefing, and stuff like that. President Obama's toilet schedule appears not to be one of those major events.

Perhaps you could create a petition on the whitehouse.gov site to include that information in the daily schedule. If you can get 25,000 signatures, they'll consider it.

8. My dear MineralMan...

I have wondered, and I had no idea that his schedule was available.

I like your idea a lot, and I hope you do it!

11. I'm planning to do just that.

I've added the President's schedule to my bookmark bar. I usually get to my desk about 8AM CST, and will post that day's schedule then. I didn't know that schedule was available either. It would be good to know what our President has on his agenda each day, I think.

10. I think it's safe to say

that gymnastics has been very, very good to Aly Raisman's gluteal muscles.
