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.

Ice cream. Barbeque. Beer.

Yup. That plate’s really getting full!
And then there are all of those people under THAT bus.
“memorandum of August of last year that selected 14 job creating high-priority infrastructure projects “

He has the nation’s heart on his plate, and the vampire is devouring it as fast as he can.
Private sector is in good shape...
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.
Hey no one said getting a hole in one is easy work..gotta keep on trying and trying and trying til the darn ball goes in the hole
He DOES have a lot on his plate! And it looks delicious!
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.
Gawd, he’s a pig.
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!
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.
He’ll have more flexibility after the election....
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.
Focused like a laser beam on jobs, he is.
This is the guy who played more rounds of golf in 2011 than my SIL who’s a PGA pro.
What a bunch of boolsheet.
Those 1/2 days, golf games, vacations, and campaign stops really wear a fella out. Who has time to run the nation! You arel all being very unreasonable, you racists SOB’s!
Carney’s tap dancing would make Shirley Temple jealous!
Yes those pesky tee times and basketball games getting in the way.
Trying to figure out how to give a speech without reading every word from the teleprompter is tough. Full time job. Who has time for meetings?
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.
Laziest presedent ever!
He’s been too busy meeting with his base, you know, the homo’s at the International AIDS Conference and the race-baiters at the recent NAACP tent gathering ....oh wait...nevermind....
