President Obama’s White House guest list is beginning to sound like a joke punchline. Instead of inviting CEO’s or experts who know a thing or two about jobs creation, Obama invited NBA legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson to the White House to brainstorm about creating jobs.
As Twitchy.com points out, the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, which is now disbanded, didn’t get the job done. So why not invite a sports star who is the face of a multimillion dollar corporation run by silent partners?
Johnson, 54, couldn’t contain his excitement when he took to his Twitter account to boast about his biggest achievement — no, not his 5 NBA championship rings; and not the birth of his son. Something bigger.
