Obama to Kill Jobs Council


Nothing this man does would surprise me.....

I heard an ex-CEO of some oil company telling a story about Obama, before he ran for President.
The CEO saw him at some fund raiser and started to tell Obama, (and this was years ago) that the U.S. could be independent of any foreign oil....Obama snapped at him and said, "We already have a plan!" turn around and walked away....the CEO followed, and said, "excuse me, but we could be absolutely free from any foriegn oil" and Obama yelled at him.."I said, we have a plan". Obama is aloof and spoiled, it must be his way or the highway, right or wrong, and I'm so totally stressed by the fact that this man is our President.

Besides being a PR exercise, what did the Jobs Council actually accomplish?

Granted ending it was the correct thing to do but it does address the bigger picture. Obama said all the right things concerning things like the jobs Council and the Debt Commission but he knew that it mattered none what they came up with, he was going to do whatever he wanted no matter what.

Link to sensationalist Breitbart article that lies about the facts? CHECK

Make-believe fairy tale story that never happened to denigrate the president? CHECK

All that's missing is the Socialist/Communist/Fascist/Kenyan/Dictator charge and it's a home run!

"[T]he White House had taken action on 33 of the 35 executive actions that the council had recommended."

What's that you were saying?

I'm totally with you on this one! The Republican party needs to knock off their constant, vile attacks against the 99 percent Job Creators, without whom there would be almost no demand and very few, if any jobs at all.

The tone of the OP and the linked, extremist-generated reporting is just an indication of how so many of that ilk hate this country and those of us who live here. They're blinded by their hate, and not truly interested in advancing our nation's best interests. Your job creator comment is spot-on accurate.

The jobs council was not supposed to tell the president how to create jobs but rather what we can do as a country to help job creation.
