    New Obama OMB director a Bain alum

    Jeffrey Zients will serve as President Obama's new acting director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), but the president's decision might undercut attacks on Republican Mitt Romney's career as a venture capitalist, because Zients and Romney are both alumni of Bain & Company.

    "I'm pleased to designate Jeff Zients to lead the Office of Management and Budget. Since day one, Jeff has demonstrated superb judgment and has provided sound advice on a whole host of issues," Obama said in a statement accompanying the announcement today. Zients previously served as Deputy Director of OMB under Jack Lew, who became Obama's chief of staff with the departure of Bill Daley.

    It is different, even if we are too stupid to understand. We should stop clinging bitterly to our guns and religion and get with the program.


    By the way, can anyone explain why, if I am clinging bitterly to religion, the bitter person here goes by the name of Cammmpbel?

    You are too stupid, but that's :thup:

    So now you're a "conservative?" I thought you claimed to be an independent.

    I do not claim to be anything other than a Quantum Windbag. I do not need labels to tell me what to think.

    Did Obama seriously just remove the ammo from his possible future campaign against Romney?

    He is dumber than I thought.

    Big risk isn't it? I wonder how he is going to spin it in debate?

    Lots of conservatives are 'independent', Ravster. I am. I have no party affiliation - therefore I am independent. I identify mainly with 'conservative' views (although, in truth I am more of a 'Classical Liberal').... but that does not make one a 'Republican'.

    Just an FYI, Romney worked at Bain and Company. Don't tell anyone, keep it on the downlow.
