    But the WH doesn't listen to his advice.  Instead, they tried to persuade him to not criticize their economic record as much because of "political considerations".

    PK got fed up with it recently and wrote a column on the topic, expressing his regret that he listened to the WH instead of being more open and forthright with the public about the problems with unemployment and the economy.

    Not sure, but he may not be having those lunches any longer, though he's probably always available if they want some advice.

        'right'.

        We've seen how the 'transparency' pledge has been ditched whenever inconvenient, to allow backroom deals to be made and then simply handed over as fait accompli.  

        So I can't claim to be surprised that anything more complex than simply 'doing everything out in the open' will be interpreted in ways I don't agree with much.
