Obama Holds First Cabinet Meeting Since January
9:02 AM, Jul 26, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER

According to President Barack Obama's official schedule, "Later in the afternoon, the President will hold a Cabinet Meeting in the Cabinet Room. There will be a pool spray at the top of the meeting."

By CBS reporter Mark Knoller's account, this cabinet meeting is the first one President Obama has held since January 31:

Today at the WH, Pres Obama convenes a Cabinet meeting - 18th of his presidency, first one since Jan 31st.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) July 26, 2012

**SNIP**

So it appears, like the president's jobs council, his cabinet has been focusing on jobs. And, like the jobs council, the president hasn't held a cabinet meeting in over the last six months.

Now watch the media coo over this first cabinet meeting in 6 months like a parent who’s 2 year old just used the toilet for the first time.

What do you think all of the “tsars” were for? He put his people into those “tsar-ships” in order to circumvent the approval process in the Senate for his nominees. The “Cabinet” is simply a ruse that never meets and has no power or authority. Everything is happening in the offices of the “tsars”.

His real cabinet is Valerie Jarrett, Moochelle, Axelrod, Holder, Trumka, and maybe a few representatives of the NAACP and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Not to worry, Valerie knows and has held private meetings with all the Secretaries to deliver her demands

Someone should ask him to go around the room and name each cabinet member. 100:1 he can’t do it.

Valerie Jarrett doesn’t need any cabinet meeting. She has “Das Kapital” memorized along with “Rules for Radicals” and she will wing it from there. Obama can go back to the links or back to sleep...whichever.

——Today, President Obama convened a meeting of his Cabinet to discuss the ideas he laid out in the State of the Union. Joining the meeting was a new member of that Cabinet — Karen Mills, the head of the Small Business Administration. ... The President also ran through what agencies like the Departments of Commerce, Energy, and Education are doing to help American businesses as well.——

Wow, Our POS POTUS must have really stepped it last week with his “ you didn’t build it” gaff....poll numbers must be tanking...

Time to bring out the kaboke show for the press...

To have none would draw unwanted attention — but since the cabinet takes its direction from the same cadre that tells Zero what to do, why would cabinet meetings need to be held more often? Thanks Libloather.
