Daily economic briefings disappear from Obama's White House schedule


Recommended Posts

The Hill:

At some point during the first two years of his administration, President Obama stopped receiving the daily economic briefing that he requested when he took office.

Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs announced at his own first daily briefing reporters that Obama asked for the daily economic briefing, described then as comparable to the daily intelligence briefing the president gets every morning.

“The president asked that this be added every day to his schedule,” Gibbs said at the time. Gibbs added that Obama believed it is “important that each day he receive the most up to date information as it relates to the economy.”

But at some point, the daily economic briefings stopped showing up on Obama's daily schedule.

White House officials said the meetings slowly petered out, but Obama still receives a daily economic briefing on paper.

“The president requests regular meetings several times a week and daily updates from his economic policy team, just as he does with his national security team and other senior advisers in the White House,” one administration official said.

Additionally, the official said, the president gets daily briefing documents from his National Economic Council and regular updates from Vice President Biden.

Well, this explains a few things...

The country's in the very best of hands.

Denial ain't just a river in Egypt. Small wonder Obambi is throwing this in Biden's lap, he has to go play golf because he doesn't have a clue how to fix the mess he created. Maybe he should have taken a couple of business courses while he was at Harvard.


BTW: that's not saying Biden has anymore experience running the economy than a little girl running a lemonade stand, because the little girl may know things about the price of investment vs. profit, something Obambi and Joe are clueless about...
