Obama: I Will Not Rest Until Everyone Has A Job, A Good Wage, & Benefits

I guess 600 hours of golf is pretty stressful.

Seriously, just how hard has The One been working to improve the economy..........

But just how little time Mr. Obama has spent working on the economy can be seen in the data contained in the Government Accountability Institute’s analysis: Throughout the first 1,257 days of his presidency, Mr. Obama has spent just 412 hours in economic meetings or briefings of any kind

In 2012, so far Obama has spent just 24 total hours in economic meetings of any kind Assuming a six day, 10-hour workweek, Obama has spent less than 4 percent of his total time in economic meetings or briefings of any kind There were 773 days (72 percent), excluding Sundays, in which he had no economic meetings Mr. Obama has spent an average of 138 minutes a week in economic meetings.

According to a study published in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity, new dog owners spent an average of 130 minutes a week walking their dogs.

The study, which was based upon the president’s official schedule, practically bent over backwards to include anything even remotely akin to an economic meeting. For example, “Obama meets with Consumer Product Safety Commission Chairwoman Inez Tenenbaum” was tallied as an economic meeting. Also included was, “Obama meets with Cabinet secretaries,” which may or may not have dealt with economic issues, counted as well.
