DAILY GUIDANCE AND PRESS SCHEDULE FOR
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2009

In the morning, the President will travel on Marine One to Andrews Air Force Base. The President's departure from the South Lawn will be open press. President Obama will then depart Andrews Air Force Base en route Ft. Myers, FL. President Obama will deliver remarks and take questions from residents of Ft. Myers, FL, describing his commitment to put aside politics as usual and implement a plan to create jobs, jumpstart growth and transform our economy for the 21st century. Across the country, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan will help businesses create jobs and families afford their bills, while laying a foundation for future economic growth in key areas like health care, clean energy, education and a 21st century infrastructure. This plan is particularly meaningful to families and businesses in the Ft. Myers area, where the unemployment rate has jumped from 6 percent to 10 percent since last year.

The President will return to Andrews Air Force Base on Air Force One and then travel to the White House on Marine One. The President's arrival aboard Marine One on the South Lawn will be open press.

In the evening, the President will meet with members of the Democratic Blue Dog Coalition in the State Dining Room. This meeting is closed press.
