Forget the State of the Union, What You Really Need to Know Is What Obama Told His Lunch Partners, Yesterday

And they aren't talking.

Yesterday, President Obama had a private lunch with oilmen, bankers, and the like. That's where the real policy plans were discussed. Attending the lunch were:

Shelly Lazarus CEO of Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide

Jamie Dimon, chief executive of JPMorgan Chase

James Hackett, chief of Anadarko Petroleum

Rex Tillerson, head of Exxon Mobil

Edward Rust Jr. CEO of State Farm Insurance

Also in attendance at the lunch were presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett, Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.

  1. After Pres. Obama's State of the Union I wonder if these guys feel informed or sucker punched?
