E-mail, conference calls, video conferencing.
Who actually goes somewhere just to talk to someone about business?

Here' s where you can see people making up excuses for their king's failure to do his job.
 
2013-01-18 10:54:18 AM
Despite the lack of public council meetings in the past year, council members have convened a series of private conference calls where they heard reports from and interacted with senior Obama Administration officials like National Economic Council chair Gene Sperling and Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

It's almost like it's disingenuous to imply that the job council doesn't exist and is doing nothing at all.

Congress said it was their number one priority.  He figured they had it covered.

And here is where you can see people complaining about the "limited government" they so desperately say they want.

Actually Congress's job was to make sure Obama was a one-term president. They failed. Now they have no direction and what not.

When I think of efficient problem solving, lots of "official meetings" are usually at the top of the list.
 
2013-01-18 11:20:13 AM
There hasn't been a reasonable alternative, but I gotta say this is some pretty poor administrating. If the knobs on the council don't want to appear with Obama, then fire their retarded asses and get somebody else in there. The illusion of talking about jobs is better than nothing at all.

OMG, they never had an "official meeting!!1!

Btw, America doesn't have kings.  ("conservatives" are so dumb)

Anyway, the 112/113 "JOBS ! JOBS! JOBS!" Congress is picking up the slack with their laser-like focus on abortion, repealing Obamacare, birth control, JOBS!!1! , so nothing to worry about.

Diogenes: Congress said it was their number one priority.  He figured they had it covered.


They tried. How where they suppose to know that anti-abortion measures, trying to repeal the ACA, and balking during the debt ceiling talks would not create jobs?
 
2013-01-18 11:36:57 AM
If I compare that with corporate, great job.

Meetings are the number 1 waste of time, next only to may be FARK.

so, yeah, 1 year without a meeting probably means they are getting the job done.

Obama just has to hold one jobs meeting per year, and problem solved.

Just one annual meeting, and we will give him the benefit of the doubt. Is that so unreasonable??
 
2013-01-18 11:53:12 AM
Because they came up with a package of measures, Obama sent it to the House, and Republicans did nothing.

I ask my boss for training. She ignores the request. One year later, my not having the skill set for that new project is whose fault?

Yup. I know at my job I get a ton of work done when I'm in big meetings all day.

MisterRonbo: I ask my boss for training. She ignores the request. One year later, my not having the skill set for that new project is whose fault?


Did she then hire someone else to help you, and tell them repeatedly that she'd get them the training, right in front of you? That's what one of my old bosses did.

Except they haven't been doing nothing, they just haven't been grandstanding and photo-oping.

"The Council was focused in 2012 on implementing the recommendations made in its three reports. Of the 60 recommendations for executive action, significant progress has been made on 54. Also Congress passed legislation on six recommendations made by the Council,"

Aren't profits for companies also the highest they've seen in years? Maybe if we give them moar tax breaks then the jobs will finally start coming!

People can... do things? Without being in the same room? What is this voodoo magic of which you speak?

What do you want the jobs council to do? You already have record corporate profits. It's kind of up to the private sector to create the jobs, no?

And you won't hear it again if his jobs council actually holds a meeting.

Because then we will simply move onto the next manufactured scandal, like a wandering tribe of nomadic barbarians pillaging all in our path.

I have an actual job. I've had one for over 30 years. I know that when I'm in a meeting, I'm not actually getting any work done.

DROxINxTHExWIND: DRO on Meetings:

"They love to talk about it, but they hate to do it".


I've worked in places that were more meetings than work, and now I have a 20-minute meeting every day.

It's not THAT you have meetings, it's how you run them. Lee Iacocca-style (no sitting, only people with their asses on the line get to talk, it's everyone's job to keep us focused) seems to work.

Your boss/company holding meetings to make work for themselves, or to feel like they matter, does not.

// but I think we know this
// and "all-hands" meetings, unless they're announcing Stripper Mondays or are under 10 minutes long, are totally farking useless and anyone who suggests them should be fired
// out of a cannon
// into the sun

It's almost like supply side economics is DESIGNED to do nothing but funnel money out of the middle and lower classes into the pockets of the wealthiest among us.

I'm not at all surprised given the council members.
