The White House

www.whitehouse.gov - Everything you need to know about what goes on in our Executive Branch of the federal government. President Obama was adept at using the Internet during his campaign in 2008, and his staff has not slowed down since he took office. There is a ton of information on the White House website. For instance, right from the front page you can:

  • see videos and pictures from recent events
  • get information on health care reform
  • follow the blog

The front page also has recent legislation plus a long list of related information at the bottom of the screen. If you want to stay on top of the news through other means, you can friend the White House on Facebook, get speeches on iTunes, watch videos on YouTube, or follow tweets on Twitter.

Use the tabs at the top of the screen to find information on all kinds of issues; to see more videos; to read speeches and remarks made by the president, first lady, and members of the administration; to get some biographical information on members of the cabinet as well as past presidents and first ladies; and to find out how the three branches of US federal government work together to keep the country running.

Students looking for introductory material will find quite a bit here, and citizens wanting to keep current on the issues in the news will certainly not be disappointed.
