Obama to meet with deficit commission, Qatari emir

A day after announcing his proposal to cut the U.S. deficit by $4 trillion, President Barack Obama will meet with the co-chairmen of his bipartisan deficit-reduction commission.

The plan Obama proposed Wednesday relied on some of the measures proposed by the panel in December. Vice President Joe Biden also will attend the White House meeting with Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson.

In the afternoon, the president will meet with the emir of Qatar in the Oval Office. Afterward, Obama and Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani will talk with the media. Qatar backs the Libyan rebels who oppose Moammar Gadhafi's regime.

Later, the president will travel to Chicago. He'll speak at several Democratic National Committee events in the evening before spending the night in his hometown.
