They Said It! White House Chief Of Staff Gets Earful From Business Community

- June 17, 2011

White House Chief Of Staff Gets Earful From Business Community, Admits That Obama’s Anti-Growth Policies Are “Indefensible”   

White House Chief Of Staff Bill Daley: "Sometimes You Can’t Defend The Indefensible." “One by one, exasperated executives stood to air their grievances on environmental regulations and stalled free-trade deals. And Daley, the former banker tasked with building ties with industry, found himself looking for the right balance between empathy and defending his boss.  At one point, the room erupted in applause when Massachusetts utility executive Doug Starrett, his voice shaking with emotion, accused the administration of blocking construction on one of his facilities to protect fish, saying government ‘throws sand into the gears of progress.’ Daley said he did not have many good answers, appearing to throw up his hands in frustration at what he called ‘bureaucratic stuff that’s hard to defend.’ ‘Sometimes you can’t defend the indefensible,’ he said.” (Peter Wallsten and Jia Lynn Yang, “White House’s Daley Seeks Balance In Outreach Meeting With Manufacturers,” The Washington Post, 6/16/11)
