Romney: In Six Months, Obama's Done 100+ Campaign Fundraisers, ZERO Job Councils
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?
