I just don't think he gets it.

Obama to announce plans to cut government waste

Obama was to sign an executive order creating the Campaign to Cut Government Waste. According to a draft of the order obtained by The Associated Press, Obama will call for a new oversight board to work with federal agencies to cut back on waste and improve their performance. The order also requires cabinet secretaries to hold regular meetings with Vice President Joe Biden to report progress.

This is a joke, right?  Right?  Ashton Kutcher is going to pop up behind the podium and tell us all we've been had, isn't he?

I mean, Democrats cannot expect the American public to buy into this, can they?  It has to be obvious to even the most partisan among us that creating a government committee to reduce government waste is in itself wasteful.

This is yet further evidence that the Men in Charge have nothing but contempt for the American public.  Generally speaking, I agree with Borepatch when he says that the Democrats are not the problem and the Republicans are not the answer, but Jesus Christ on a motorbike, at least the GOP generally pretends they think we have brains!

YES, except for the last phrase. The Republican Party, speaking through the likes of Rush and FOX, insult our intelligence dozens of times a day. Don't kid yourself; "government waste" creates new cronies and ensures more votes. Both parties thrive on it.

I think he needs to form an exploratory committee to see if this needs to be done before doing it. Just to doubly sure.
