    saw some hee hawing back and forth on Romneys ad , to wit he says that obama has not been focusing on jobs, his jobs council has not met in 6 months etc. etc....which I have to say- seriously, is hard to believe, especially given the last quarter of unemployment numbers etc......since I know some of you put a lot of stock in fact checking.........






    Over the last six months, President Barack Obama has golfed 10 times and held 106 fundraisers, but his jobs council has never met.

    In a video and an infographic, the Republican National Committee amplified a charge first raised by Mitt Romney on the stump the day before -- that President Barack Obama has held more than 100 fundraisers in the past six months, yet his jobs council didn’t meet once.

    "In the last six months, he has held 100 fundraisers, and guess how many meetings he has had with his jobs council?" Romney said in a July 18, 2012, campaign event in Bowling Green, Ohio. "None. Zero. Zero in the last six months. So it makes it very clear where his priorities are."

    Meeting with a bunch of big business Romney supporters was not going that well, the jobs counsel started from a naive supposition, Obama thought American businessmen cared about Americans and the economy, oh well, live and learn.

    Priorities, my friend, priorities. I think we are witnessing the first president who wings his job until it comes to campaigning.

    I know.

    It's hard for Obama to relate to businessmen......and folks who's economic ideology is based on reality.
