Carney On Why Jobs Council Hasn't Met In Six Months: Obama Has "A Lot On His Plate"
Real Clear Politics ^ | 7/18/12 | staff

Posted on 07/18/2012 12:27:28 PM PDT by Nachum

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.

In March of this year, just four months ago, an executive order launched interagency effort to cut red tape and improve outcomes for infrastructure projects.

He has the nation’s heart on his plate, and the vampire is devouring it as fast as he can.

Obama’s fund raising takes precedence over jobs.

Yep, Obama has a lot on his plate and it is not about jobs for the average Joe. It is about him keeping his job with all the fund raisers going on.

Maybe if he’d put down the shovel and back away from the fundraiser and golf course buffet he might have room on that plate for some real work.

IIRC, the Jobs Council’s last report recommended reducing taxes and regulations. That may be a factor in why Obama doesn’t want to hear from them again.

Name me one president that HASN'T had a lot on his plate.

For God's sake.....it's the nature of the job, you idiot!

A lot on his plate?

It's true that plates are taking up the majority of his time. At $30,000 per plate fund raisers with his Hollywood and campaign bundler pals in LA, Chicago, Paris, China, Dubai, UAE, Turkey, Sweden, Switzerland and NY City.

And he has a lot of plates too! I'll bet he gets some pretty good chow at all of those celebrity fundraisers he's always going to.

But, I thought he would NOT rest, from dawn to dusk, from the first thing of the day to the last, his focus would be on jobs, jobs, jobs. Just maybe, perhaps,... the focus was more like having the govt boot on the neck of jobs, jobs, jobs.

In the bottom left picture, he’s smiling like he’s a 5 year old child. I really dislike him.

The only way we are going to see our economy rebound, jobs, a comfortable, content middle class is when we have a government that recognizes what it is they are supposed to be doing instead of what they are doing.

THAT would be staying the “H” out of our business, and doing as the Founders designed the Federal Government to do in the first place.

His daily schedule is released by the White House.

Many days, his briefing- if he gets one- is around 0945. Then he might have a lunch to attend which might last until 2. Then, that is it. Unless if you happen to check his schedule and he see he is campaiging EVERY SINGLE DAY ON THE TAXPAYER’S DOLLAR instead of doing his JOB.

The rest of the time, he is busy with Reggie, ESPN and hiding from mooch. Period. He ain’t workin’.

Never has, you liar.

All the Carney barker ever does is spin himself into a pretzel by attempting to misinterpret what zer0 actually said. If it was SO clear jay, you wouldn't be talking about it. Explain this statement jay, on May 7, 2011, from the liar-in-chief ...
