To the delight of late night comedians and conservative webcomic writers, the Obama administration met yesterday with William Jefferson ("Call me BJ") Clinton to get his advice on "jobs." If you know what we mean.
Presumably, the impeached former president gave a lengthy discourse on the most effective application of stimulus, as well as his innovative thoughts on how to create additional business demand for the drycleaning and humidor industries, and how to collect licensing revenue every time a "Big Gulp" is sold.
But seriously, the country's unemployment numbers are no laughing matter... and analysts are placing much of the blame squarely on this administration's anti-business policies.
Face it, Barack. When you have to call in Bill Clinton for advice on jobs, you've already blown it.
So to speak.
