President Obama had no public events over the weekend, but he was seen at a NBA game between the Washington Wizards and the Chicago Bulls on Friday night (picture above).
The White House also released two statements by Mr. Obama. In his regular weekly address, the president defended his budget blueprint which was released last Thursday and also said he was gearing up for a "fight" with lobbyists who oppose his plans.
The White House also released comments Mr. Obama made via video to the State of the Black Union conference, an annual event led by talk show host Tavis Smiley. In his remarks, Mr. Obama touted his accomplishments in his first month in office, specifically how they relate to blacks.
He said: "These are policies that will make a big difference in the African American community. You know that tough times for America often mean tougher times for African Americans. This recession has been no exception. The unemployment rate among black Americans is a full five points higher than the rate among Americans as a whole."
