White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley took heat from business executives Thursday for the Obama administration’s regulatory expansions. Daley also said he didn’t have any good answers for some of what President Obama is doing and expressed frustration about the “bureaucratic stuff that’s hard to defend.”
“Sometimes you can’t defend the indefensible,” Daley said at a National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) meeting.
Daley couldn’t answer basic questions and continually faced criticism from the executives in the room. The business leaders even applauded each other’s criticism of the administration. “At one point, the room erupted in applause when Massachusetts utility executive Doug Starrett, his voice shaking with emotion, accused the administration of blocking construction on one of his facilities to protect fish, saying government ‘throws sand into the gears of progress,’” wrote Peter Wallsten and Jia Lynn Yang in the Washington Post.
Americans for Limited Government Communications Director and former Labor Department Public Affairs Chief of Staff Rick Manning told The Daily Caller that Daley’s inability to defend Obama’s regulations is an indication that the administration’s plans aren’t working. Manning also points out that Daley’s meeting may have large political implications.

Yes I do, I sure would have to be the one to try to defend all the anti-business policies that Obama has come up with.
We need to vote him out before he does much more damage to this great country before it is too late
If he isn't stopped soon it won't be reversible..

Daley should hide that teleprompter, without it Obama would not be able to fire him.

Its too bad that regulatons were eliminated a few decades ago. If you don't know why Regulations in Finance are so important, try watching this DVD "Inside Job" and you will be horrified at what Wall Street and Banks did to all of us due to the lack of regulatory safeguards!

I didn't know you took advice on Wall Street and banks from an old 70's rock band member.

Charles Ferguson made the DVD....he is NOT a rock star.
I just wonder if you guys are intoxicated most of the time or have dyslexia or just make a lot of bad guesses and pretend you know what is going on.
Good luck with that.....
