It was a modest affair, to be sureSo sad! President Obama invited over a bunch of congressmen and senators to talk about being fiscally responsible, and some of them showed up, but a lot of them didn’t. Even some breakout session panelists and moderators failed to appear because who knows, maybe they had something better to do than fix the economy???

Basically the whole summit consisted of the president sitting at the end of a table in an empty room, talking to himself.

Economic Recovery Advisory Board Chairman Paul Volcker, penciled in to lead the session on taxes, didn’t come. Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki, listed as a moderator of the health-care panel, was also missing, as was Deputy Defense Secretary William Lynn, who had been tapped as a leader of the procurement session. Another mysterious absence: CIA Director Leon Panetta, the Clinton budget director, who was expected to lead the budget panel.

Jesus Christ, does the new president have syphilis or something? Nancy Pelosi showed up late, Harry Reid didn’t show up at all…Oh yes, and Larry Summers fell asleep.

A rousing success!

  1. “White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, listed as one of the moderators of the procurement panel, arrived just 10 minutes before the end. ‘Oh, nice of you to join us,’ said Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.). Emanuel said nothing. But Emanuel didn’t need to say anything.” Because Emanuel knew, deep deep down, that Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) would lose the use of his fucking smart-ass tongue by morning. And then Emanuel smiled, which was a fucking rare thing.

  2. They’re all hurt that Barry doesn’t reciprocate their crush and now they’re avoiding him. Barry is a victim of his hotness. And this preznincy totally failed. Over.

  3. “Nancy Pelosi showed up late, Harry Reid didn’t show up at all” hmmmm….except for the part about Nance showing up at all, this could be any of session of Congress.

  4. Dagnabbit, fifty fuckin’ quatloos to the intrepid “photojournalist” from TMZ who has the pics of Pal Volcker stepping out of a massage parlour.

  5. Economic Recovery Advisory Board Chairman Paul Volcker, penciled in to lead the session on taxes, didn’t come

    Well maybe the Volcker would have shown up if Obama had bothered to listen to him at any point in the last three months, or give him a staff, or show him that he is not just there to serve as press conference decoration.

    Honestly, the Obama economic team is comprised of the two enormous egoes of Summers & Geithner. They have grabbed all power for themselves and basically told everyone else to go pound sand. Volcker has good reason to be pissed.

  6. They figured at a responsibility orgy they’d have to wear condoms… and really, when you’re enjoying sex with multiple semi-anonymous partners, do you really want to have a piece of rubber come between you?

  9. Aw, poor Barry… I’ll be your friend! We can stay up all night, paint each other’s toenails and build sound plans for economic and industrial recovery!

  10. “Economic Recovery Advisory Board Chairman Paul Volcker, penciled in to lead the session on taxes, didn’t come.”

    Next time try Hot Lube on the dildo, and nipple clamps. And for Volcker, he should use the JO lube that has as its motto “Mens et Manus” – the same as on the MIT seal.
