I am hoping that a list of the names of the business leaders and their companies will be released. I would like to know more about who they are and what was discussed.

Can I get a copy of the remarks President Obama made today (July 2, 2009) at 2:20 in the Rose Garden? If so, where? Thank you.

Rose Garden remarks,

Here are his remarks on the Civil Rights Anniversary today, too.

"I am hoping that a list of the names of the business leaders and their companies will be released. I would like to know more about who they are and what was discussed."

I thought the exact same thing, anybody know where we can find out who those people are?

I too would like to know the names of the companies. Where is this transparent White House we hear so much about!
