President Obama had an "intimate White House lunch" on Tuesday with the CEO of Exxon Mobil, Rex Tillerson, and the CEO of JPMorgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, reports the New York Post. This is news in part because, despite the president's boast in the State of the Union address that the White House releases its visitor lists, in fact the names are released only weeks or months afterwards, when it's less newsworthy. It'd be interesting to find out whether all those idealistic young people who volunteered for Obama's "change" campaign in 2008 thought he'd be inviting Mr. Dimon and Mr. Tillerson to lunch in the White House. It makes Mr. Obama's populist campaigning against "selfish," "fat-cat" bankers and their "obscene" profits seem all the more phony.
