One hour and 25 mins focusing like a laser beam on jobs! Wow, he better bring his nicorette gum!

I didn’t really watch the whole debate–it was my backup channel for commercials on another channel–but someone mentioned creating new markets for US products–I wonder if that will be discussed. I also wonder what business leaders actually fly in and fritter away a day being a prop in these roundtables, the president playing Socrates. I would find it unbearable…

I wonder how many jobs could be created if the money sucked out of the private sector to pay for the “Council on Jobs and Competitiveness” had stayed in the private sector.

My thoughts as well, William. Mark Levin played this Margaret Thatcher clip on socialism last night and it really hit home…

RWC January 17, 2012 at 10:35 am

Love Thatcher. That is why I’m not going to sit through Hollywoods interpretation of her.

The Iron Lady would not be pleased I’m sure.

Robin H January 17, 2012 at 7:31 am

The Middle East is blowing up around us and he gives the King of Jordan 45minutes? Wow. Such a hardship.

Is ANYONE allowed to ask why Obama starts his “work day” (LOL) so late? re: “10am”

DeniseVB January 17, 2012 at 8:47 am

He’s not a morning person is he? Meeting with “senior advisers” sounds like a campaign meeting to me. Council on Jobs are probably union leaders, more campaign chat. Biden lunch, what possibly do they have to talk about? Oh and meet a King! Photo op! World Series champs, more photo op. Then poor Panetta gets dragged in during DC rush hour…probably to plan more photo ops with troops.

No fundraisers today?

But then, he’s not an ‘evening person’ either, is he…unless there’s some extravagant party on the books?

DeniseVB January 17, 2012 at 9:48 am
RWC January 17, 2012 at 10:30 am

Wow. Busy day. Must be election time. Surprised he didn’t fit in going to church or visiting Walter Reed. Oh, that’s right, talking to soldiers is tedious for him.

deniro11111 January 17, 2012 at 12:52 pm
