Obama brainstorming with 20 CEOs

New York (CNNMoney.com) - President Obama said Wednesday that a meeting with 20 CEOs will help "find new ways to spur hiring, put Americans back to work and move our economy forward."

Obama plans to meet with some of the most prominent U.S. corporate leaders for a discussion covering such issues as trade, clean energy, the deficit and tax code reform.

    Bush would have been 'barnstorming.' It will be interesting to see if businesses will put some money back into the economy.

    Somehow, I can't fathom how Obama and "brainstorm" can be used in the same sentence.

    President Obama can lead the horse to the water .... I wonder, though, just what this power broking group of weasels will insist upon before they decide to drink. It is they who have held back the jobs ... or continue to out source overseas ... yet, when all is said and done, it is they who have remained unscathed, as the working class continues to repeat lobbyist talking points distracting away from big business CEO's manipulation of the very talking points both sides of the aisle parrot.

    Obama is doing this "for show."
    The only way his socialist's agenda could "put people back to work" is to have taxes pay for some make-work jobs like basket weaving and arty photographic exhibitions. Remember the last Depression?
    Obama should go swimming in Hawaii if he wants to put somebody back to work.

    And one of them is the Chambers of Commerce.

    OK.....isn't it interesting that Obambi is now making that "Right" turn????
    I can see it now; Obambi's new catch phrase for the next two years will be "Fiscal Responsibility"

    Wait.. Wasnt this little dog and pony show already tried last year.? When he pulled in the "best and brightest" to get the economy moving again.. i guess this is the only move obama knows... Maybe he should stop demonizing business and people who make a profit... Maybe he should get out of the way and let business move forward without government intervention.. which never works... Looks like the lefts utopia is crumbling before them.. oh boo hoo... Get your inexperienced talking head out of the White House and than maybe the economy will grow... obama is nothing but a huge stop sign for any expanding business.. Couldnt be because his master plan is to "share the wealth"...
