View the President's Schedule

Met with Cong. Ldr.ship—Dem. & Repub. Things got a little tense re the deficit & the need to extend the debt ceiling. I told them there wasn’t a state in the union that didn’t have a better budget process than the Fed. Govt. We submitted a bud. on Feb. 5th—some weeks ago the Cong. finally passed a bud. resolution which I agreed to—but here it is Nov. & they are fighting over appropriations entirely at odds with their own bud.

Later an N.S.P.G. meeting on aid to Savimbi in Angola. [. . .] Had a T.V. interview with 5 foreign press—5 countries—U.K., Switzerland, Italy, France & darn if I can remember number 5. A meeting with Rep. Strangeland—he’s concerned about the farm situation but aren’t we all.

Dick Wirthlin came by for the usual polling. I’m 65% in job approval which is higher than Ike was at the same time in his 2nd term. I’m also way up in my dealing with the Soviets.
