The Obamas visit Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery dedicated to lives lost in Iraq and Afghanistan
An a day of service:
The Obamas participate in a service project at the DC Central Kitchen in Washington to commemorate the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance
Tomorrow they will participate in the September 11th Anniversary Commemoration Ceremony in New York.
Then it will be time to hit the road with the American Jobs Act.
President Obama will continue to promote his jobs bill this week, following up on Friday’s visit to Virginia with stops in Ohio on Tuesday and North Carolina on Wednesday.
There are rumblings that a visit to Colorado will come after that.
So we have a speech to a Joint Session of Congress followed immediately by visits to 4 big swing states. You think perhaps the President is serious about this?
In one what was certainly his most impassioned -- and maybe even his most consequential -- speech since taking office, he proposed something bold and specific, demanded that Congress pass it, and promised to take his case directly to the people. As Greg Sargent noted, "The tone of urgency bordered on overkill — which is a good thing. ... Aides had promised he would challenge, rather than beseech, Congress to act. That turned out to be an understatement."
Indeed, the message seemed clear. The inside game is over. The outside game begins now.
