President Obama heads to South Bend, Ind., around 9:30 a.m. He addresses the state of economic recovery efforts in Wakarusa, Ind., at 11:55 a.m. ET.

He returns to Washington in the afternoon, ahead of a meeting with his senior advisers at 4:00 p.m.

White House press secretary Robert GIbbs will gaggle on Air Force One instead of holding a press briefing in Washington.

parkerfl1: You are clueless. The liberal press is doing its best to try and cover for Obama. The truth is this is a house of cards and we continue to pile on more debt on the backs of the American people. We get saddled with billions in debt to bail-out the automakers and the unions, and now we are being saddled with more debt to be forced to buy the government cars.

I think you and many in Washington and the press have been smoking the green shoots.

These campaign-style events are the only way for the president to cut through the misinformation and media hostility and get the facts out on the improving economy and health care.
