Why Did the White House Cancel the Rose Garden Bill Signing Ceremony for the Free Trade Agreements?
Obama signed three new free trade agreements behind closed doors, instead of the planned public ceremony...
why? the article guesses because he doesnt wnat the republicans to be seen as working with him on issues that improve the economy, because he wants to continue the lie and misrepresentation that republicans are out to make people starve and die in the streets.
i say there is another reason: much of the OWS communists and anti-globalization zombie fleabaggers are against such free-trade agreements, so I say he doesn't want to piss them off, and wants to maintain their support for him.
Why did the White House cancel a Rose Garden bill-signing for the Free Trade Agreements, opting instead for a behind-closed-doors event?
White House officials say the president’s schedule is too busy. (Though, it should be noted, he made time to greet labor leaders and workers in the Rose Garden who had planned to attend the signing ceremony. That event, however, was off-limits to press.)
Republicans on the Hill say that they suspect the White House wanted to avoid a big splashy image of Democrats and Republicans working together to get something done for the economy – since that steps on the president’s narrative that the Republicans are obstructionist.

The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism.But under the name of 'liberalism',they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program,until one day America will be a socialist nation,without knowing how it happened - Norman Thomas,6-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America
The federal government has taken too much tax money from the people,too much authority from the States,and too much liberty with the Constitution - R. Reagan
Note how it was also done on a Friday, the usual day for politicians to dump or release items that they do not want to be covered by the media due to being controversial or damaging in some way, as it is usually a slow reporting day as people head off for the weekend.
But he took the time to meet with union leaders in the rose garden which was closed to the press. He could have skipped or cut back the meet and greet and just signed the bill and said a few words.
Maybe he did cut back the meet and greet. Maybe there were some concerns about the death of an ex-Libyan leader, or some details with today's decision to bring all our soldiers home from Iraq by Christmas, which is a lot more important that a stupid signing ceremony.
