Even White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley isn’t able to defend the terrible economic policies of President Obama. The Daily Caller reported that Daley met with business executives yesterday and couldn’t come up with any answers to their criticisms and questions regarding the administration’s handling of the economy.
“Sometimes you can’t defend the indefensible,” Daley said at a National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) meeting.
Daley couldn’t answer basic questions and continually faced criticism from the executives in the room. The business leaders even applauded each other’s criticism of the administration. “At one point, the room erupted in applause when Massachusetts utility executive Doug Starrett, his voice shaking with emotion, accused the administration of blocking construction on one of his facilities to protect fish, saying government ‘throws sand into the gears of progress,’” wrote Peter Wallsten and Jia Lynn Yang in the Washington Post. …
An interesting side note at the end of that story is that Daley had been on the board of Boeing and voted to open the plant in South Carolina that the NLRB wants to shut down.
Oh, and while we’re on the subject of the administration and the economy, President Obama no longer gets daily economic briefings. Maybe Michele Bachmann was on to something when she said he lacks empathy for the plight of the American people.
