REVOLT!… CEO’s Blow Off Obama’s Big Jobs Summit & Photo-Op

Poor Joe Biden sat all alone!
The CEO’s had better things to do.

When Barack Obama invited several CEO’s to his Wednesday jobs summit discussion and photo-op he didn’t expect this…
They blew him off.
No thank you, Mr. President.
The Politico reported:

Dozens of journalists packed into the East Room at the White House today for the president’s remarks on “in-sourcing,” at least 60 of them lining the press risers and walls.

But what many couldn’t see in press coverage of the event — held with roughly 120 executives to discuss bringing jobs back to America from overseas — were the dozens of empty seats in the audience.

At one point during Obama’s speech, Vice President Joe Biden strolled to the empty section and sat in a row by himself, listening.

A White House spokeswoman, asked about the 49 empty chairs, said some invitees didn’t show up.

“Like with many of these events here at the White House, we invited representatives from outside groups, businesses and community leaders involved in this issue to attend, and unfortunately some folks invited were not able to attend at the last minute,” spokeswoman Amy Brundage said.

Perhaps Joe’s entourage was still locked in the closet.
