Obama’s Got A Lot On His Plate, Too Much To Meet With Jobs Council

Laughtastic copy from Wonderkid Jay Carney

(RCP) REPORTER: On the Jobs Council, obviously they’ve reported to haven’t met formally or publicly for six months. Why is exactly is that?

CARNEY: Look, the president solicits and receives input and advice from members of his Jobs Council and others about economic initiatives all the time. And I would point you to the numerous initiatives put forward by the Jobs Council that this administration under the president’s direction has taken action, presidential memorandum of August of last year that selected 14 job creating high-priority infrastructure projects for expedited review. Four of those are already under construction.

Initiatives Obama has mostly ignored. At the most, he managed to put them on a sticky note for others to do the actual work.

REPORTER: So there’s no reason they haven’t met publicly?

CARNEY: No, there’s no specific reason except that the president’s 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 he can act on with Congress or administratively to help the economy grow and help it create jobs.

A lot on his plate. Like fundraisers, golf outings, vacations, demonizing political opponents, accusing people of crimes with no evidence, more fundraising…..someone should put that in a video. Oh, look, someone did!

As for “soliciting and receiving advice”, reading letters from his supporters who want free stuff paid for by others doesn’t count. Nor does listening to union big wigs who want kickbacks. Obama has not met with the Jobs Council since January. Romney stated on Wednesday

“In the last six months, he has held 100 fundraisers,” Romney said. “And guess how many meetings he’s had with his jobs council? None. Zero. Zero, in the last six months. So it makes it very clear where his priorities are. His priority is not creating jobs for you, his priority is trying to keep his own job and that’s why he’s going to lose it.”

Romney also released a video slamming Obama on the failed Stimulus, wondering where all the money went.
