Why speak to mere cabinet members when you have czars out the wazoo?
John Heilemann of New York magazine tells Andrea Mitchell that his investigation uncovered the truly remarkable fact that President Obama never spoke to six members of his cabinet during his first two years in office. Not once.
Not a single “Hey, how are the wife and kids.” Not one “How ’bout those wacky Iranians.” Nary a “Hey, got any ideas on the economy?”
If we had to make a wild guess, we’d say Secretary of Defense was one of the cabinet members Obama hasn’t spoken to.
