Thumbs down President's Job Council Hasn't Met In SIX Months

His press secretary says, "no specific reason...the president has a lot on his plate"

Yes Obummer has time for 189 fundraisers and 100 rounds of golf.... yet he can't find time to meet with his jobs council...... This loser doesn't get it!

One must set one's priorities mustn't one?

Just think, if he had minimized his fundraising activities or at least used a surrogate once in a while why, he might have actually accomplished something. Besides raising the misery index to new heights that is.

Let's just get this over with, fast forward to the vote and let's see what Americans are really made of.

How do you two expect a largely privately-structured 'Jobs Council' to function if those that attend could face significant consequences for affiliating with a presidential nominee a few months before the election? You think CEOs and high ranking economists are just hoping for a chance to dive into the mess of the upcoming election?

With the rate at which both sides are amplifying any allegation into a negative portrayal of the opposing nominee, what do you think the first thing Romney's campaign will do when they see Obama "working with" big business?

It's supposed to be a bipartisan thing but obviously, given the toxic campaign atmosphere, it would be highly unwise for Obama to engage in talks which could so easily be spun against him.

A pretty obvious notion and not one warranting a new thread, imo. Unless of course your goal is to sensationalize Obama in your preferred way...

The excuses are never ending...

I expect the President to do the job he was elected to do and not let campaign politics impede on his primary responsibilities -- to serve the people. Not to mention, the opposition has already pounced on his well documented abilities of doing NOTHING.

This is Obummer's jobs' council, he created it, he is in charge. This is just another fine example of his poor leadership abilities and the leftist who continue to blame someone else for his failings.

Obama put out a jobs plan a year ago. The teabaggers in congress have blocked it. Nothing will get done until after the election. How do you not get this?

You really need to open a book and learn how DC works. Obama can't magically make things better all by himself. He needs the teabaggers to get on board and actually work for the benefit of the American people, not just those who fund their campaigns.

I have worked in DC for my entire life, so trust me when I tell you, I know more about how DC works than some nit-wit kid from the leftcoast. And that's all I am going to say about it. You would be better served by keeping your trap shut about things you know nothing about.

And don't forget the historic number of filibusters and secret holds that have been used to block any of his legislation. How can you expect him to get anything done when the GOP constantly blocks anything he does.

Guys you seem to forget that the "teabaggers" weren't around until 2011.

By "anything" do you mean more so-called "stimulous" spending????

The tea party movement formed in 2008, 2011 was last year, now it's 2012. Seems that I have to point this out.

Dude, you're being a super dick, and making all these totally unfounded remarks about people you don't know from Adam. Combine that with the rage you're displaying, and the way you've suddenly been shot out of a cannon with the dozen threads you've started, and I can only conclude that something's gone totally amiss in your life.

Don't you realize that those of us who are democrat-leaning and who like Obama are never going to be swayed by your vitriol? Rather, you're causing the opposite effect, because whenever I think of a rational, reasonable, fiscal conservative free market type, I think of you and my feelings turn to hate.

Obama created the council, he can do whatever the f-k he wants to do with it, it's not in the constitution. If you would just read a normal news article, you'd see that the business leaders don't want to meet with the council because of the election partisanship issues. Just chill out.

Disturbing.

Not once, no matter how much I disagree with someone, or how silly or irrational they are being, do I feel hatred towards them. People may be misguided, and may even attack me verbally, but I still don't use that word to describe my feelings towards them.

I'm sorry, but if you start hating people because of what they say on an internet forum, perhaps you need to take a step back and ignore them. You have to understand that people will be armchair quarterbacks and talk on a website in a way which they would likely NEVER address someone in real life. The fact that they are more or less anonymous makes it so much easier to be a jackass.

I agree with your first point, and maybe it's true and something bad has happened and he is venting his frustrations here. But is that a reason to hate an individual? I don't think so... I know, totally off topic, but I just found it particularly odd that you get "hateful" when you think of the OP...

"Hate" is a short, quick word to use when typing a diatribe like I did. If I had spent the time to choose, I would've picked "angered".

You are a waste of bandwidth. You contribute nothing. You are a big SUCK, just like most liberals I know. It would not surprise me one bit if you had your lips wrapped around the government's tit.

Nobody is trying to convince you of anything and to the contrary of your leftist-loon thinking, the world does not revolve around you.

Do not address me anymore. If you don't like or agree with what is posted, to bad and despite your socialist ideology you cannot control what is written, SO MOVE ON.

Don't you have re-runs of the Rachel Maddow show to watch? Now run along the adults are talking.

Css,

What do you think about the Senate GOP not voting to bring tax breaks to small businesses that keep jobs here in the US?

What else was in the bill?

I am all for promoting an environment where American companies hire American workers to do the job. To bad our good-for-nothing President does not practice what he preaches.

You have made the most juvenile posts I've ever seen, and you obviously have major issues. But you don't run this forum - don't pretend that you're gonna tell me what to do. And this is a public forum, so there is going to be a limit to your personal attacks.

Here's what it comes down to: the reason you keep starting new threads every 2 hours is because you're crying for acceptance, and you can't deal with anyone who doesn't accept your viewpoints.

You should start a blog; that way, you can shovel all the shit you want, and nobody will criticize you. But THIS is a debate forum, and if you're the one starting the threads, be prepared for debate.
