After consulting with senior advisers and receiving his daily briefings this morning, President Obama will meet with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, FDIC Chair Sheila Bair, SEC Chair Mary Shapiro, Comptroller of the Currency John Dugan, White House economic adviser Lawrence Summers and economist Christina Romer in the White House at 11 a.m. ET.

The meeting with economic officials will focus on "ongoing efforts to stabilize our financial system and get lending moving again so that it supports economic recovery," according to a White House statement.

Following the meeting, Obama will speak briefly about the administration's plans for future action on the economy.

We are on a road to economic recovery, but the mess will surely get a little worse before it slowly gets better.

Obama needs to watch what he and his entire administration says in touting the economy. They don;'t want to get caught in the "fundamentals are strong" trap.
