This past week Americans learned President Barack Obama has not met with his own jobs council in over a year. Now we also learn it has been over a year since he has said even one word to Congressional budget leaders. He has time to fly to well over 100 and counting personal fundraising events and play repeated rounds of golf - but no time to actually make any effort whatsoever to do the job of President.
Rep. Paul Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman and the GOP point man on budgetary and other economic issues, said today that he has not spoken to President Obama in more than a year.
…The absence of even a conversation with Ryan – no less a meeting – calls into the question whether Obama is the least bit serious about trying to find agreement on extending the Bush tax cuts, an issue on which he has been pounding Republicans as allies of the rich. It suggests he is much more content to let this and other fiscal problems simmer so he can use them as a means of attacking Republicans.
During the past year, Ingraham noted, Obama has seen fit to meet with Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger, but not Ryan. She could have added to the list a host of other celebrities and athletes, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Alba, Barbara Streisand, Charles Barkley, Chris Rock, Jay-Z and Tom Hanks and George Clooney, which whom he’s had multiple sessions.
