Senior Obama administration officials met with business leaders to argue that House Speaker John Boehners Plan B could put the nation on a path to go over the fiscal cliff, a source familiar with the meeting told ABC News this afternoon.
The effort is just the latest example of the Obama administration trying to urge the Republican Partys supporters in the business community to urge its Tea Party side to be more willing to compromise with Democrats.
The Obama administration officials present were chief of staff Jack Lew, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, Director of the National Economic Council Gene Sperling, and Office of Management and Budget director Jeff Zients.
Sperling was on Broco Bama’s debate prep team:
“LAS VEGAS President Obama convened the final debate camp of his political career here on Sunday, huddling with top advisers at a posh lakeside resort 20 miles east of the Strip for a three-day crash course on Republican rival Mitt Romney.
Aides said a debate prep team ...
Obama is being coached by a group of veteran Democratic operatives and inner-circle White House advisers, aides said, including ... Gene Sperling, and chief of staff Jack Lew.”
This was the debate where Zero looked stoned, and gave Romney hope.
