White House aide
Translation: "Don't look at us, we don't what the hell we're doing."
All we have heard about is Obama's speech on jobs.
He did the psuedo-bus tour. Remember the tour where he flew a bus made in Canada from location to location, rode a couple of miles (avoiding minority communities) at each stop, and got out and said...what? Does anyone remember what he said at these stops?
He was going to do it after he got back from vacation. In my mind the implication was that he was working on it while on vacation and was going to come back with a masterpiece.
Then we had all of that drama over the WH scheduling the speech at the same time as the GOP debate. Boehner gave Obama the public smack-down and Jay Carney was stunned that we would delay, by even a day, the opportunity to save American workers.
Now that he has built it up and got everyone's attention, nothing.
I suspect that this is not an accident. Notice the build up was huge but the talk down is not only quiet but unofficial? Do you think the media is reporting on the notion that he won't have much to say? Are they doing it at the same level as they were the build-up to the speech? What will the reporting be after the speech? That the non-existent plan is wonderful?
