From Politico:

President Barack Obama has not met for six months with the CEOs and others on his Jobs Council in part because he’s simply been too busy, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday.

“There’s no specific reason, except the president has obviously got a lot on his plate, but he continues to solicit and receive advice from numerous folks outside the administration about the economy about ideas that he can act on with Congress or administratively to help the economy grow and help create jobs,” Carney said in the White House’s first on-the-record response to
a POLITICO story noting the hiatus.

President Obama, why set up a jobs council if you don't use it?  Why not just multi-task a few fundraisers so you can focus on jobs 100% for a couple hours?

It's hilarious how you guys pick one thing to obsess on for a few days then move on. It's like " ooooo, there's a shiny object". It's highly entertaining to watch.

obama's mantra is to deflect, deflect, deflect from the real problems. Yes, as president he is busy, but he also isn't doing his job for the American people. He is also getting caught in all his promises that he didn't even begin to follow through on because his agenda is quite different than he wants us to believe, but some of us know his real agenda.

I don't equate the openness of government administration or lack thereof to "a shiny object."

 Yes. We're "obsessed" with jobs and the economy. Too bad the POTUS isn't.
