Another Oops Moment

I find this more amusing than anything else.  It’s from yet another of Obama’s endless series of “meet with business leaders to find out how this whole ‘capitalism’ thing works” things.

President Obama spent the day in Cleveland on Tuesday touting his interest in hearing directly from the country’s small businesses about job creation.

“Entrepreneurs like each of the ones who are here today create two out of every three new jobs in this country,” Obama said. “So you’re the cornerstones of the community. You’re the sources of pride for working families.”

But out of the 22 members of Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, announced Wednesday, only one of them represents small businesses or has had significant experience running one.


But nearly every other business leader on the panel, including its chairman, GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt, represents a large company. The list includes representatives from Comcast and NBC-Universal, a former subsidiary of GE; DuPont; pharma giant Proctor and Gamble; Kodak; and Facebook.

This is probably just a result of a speech-writer and an event organizer not coordinating properly.  But it’s almost Bushian misfire. I guess we should be grateful that Obama didn’t bow to them or something.
