Put the TARP in a word file that is available online.
The voters were promised a five day inspection.

More bureaucracy. Just what we need. This government is starting to grow like cancer. Little by little, more and more stupid, redundant government positions are being created.

I'm glad I'm not going to live too much longer, I fear there won't be anything left after the government eats everything up for my children to enjoy. Maybe grand-pop should have stayed in the old country. My family is doing much better over there. This country is going to break just from the stress Obama is putting it through. He acts like a kid driving an old car as if it was brand new. I don't think she can take it. I wish the jitterbug would slow down apiece. Rome wasn't built in a day.

Obama's safety net: the TelePrompter


President Barack Obama doesn’t go anywhere without his TelePrompter.

The textbook-sized panes of glass holding the president’s prepared remarks follow him wherever he speaks.

Resting on top of a tall, narrow pole, they flank his podium during speeches in the White House’s stately parlors. They stood next to him on the floor of a manufacturing plant in Indiana as he pitched his economic stimulus plan. They traveled to the Department of Transportation this week and were in the Capitol Rotunda last month when he paid tribute to Abraham Lincoln in six-minute prepared remarks.

Obama’s reliance on the teleprompter is unusual — not only because he is famous for his oratory, but because no other president has used one so consistently and at so many events, large and small.

After the teleprompter malfunctioned a few times last summer and Obama delivered some less-than-soaring speeches, reports surfaced that he was training to wean himself off of the device while on vacation in Hawaii.

But no such luck.

What will the nation's first CIO's job will be?
What technology infrastructure will he build for the government?
So all the mini-CIOs of each sector of the government will all be working for him? Is this really necessary?

To create a bureaucracy of government IT.

Govweb. All the nation's functions will be installed "in the cloud", one sponsored by the U.S. government (but, installed in India. Who will have access to all U.S. government information, which many have sold out to anti-U.S. foreign interests.

All U.S. government IT professionals will get to keep their Blackberry.

No, the VP's of Information Management. There will be 12,478 of them across the U.S. and in major U.S. territories. There will be a 24-level hierarchy of reporting. Each VP will have a staff of Government Process Business Analysts, Government Project Managers, and more.

To get the organization going, he'll need $90 billion. But, this will reduce all government IT spending by 50% in 4 years.

Yes. Big government is our answer.

Obama would not make a pimple on a real economist's butt. I am curious if he even studied economics in college. Maybe it could be a reason his transcripts are locked up. Maybe If ever took a course in economics he failed.

I think you've missed the real point here ... does the name Joseph Goebbels ring a bell?

and what about the $780,000,000,000.00 stimulus bill ... I don't recall 5 days for inspection, gee, I don't recall any inspection, or, any debate!

I DO recall a skinny, botoxed, slimy bitch saying ... "we won, it's our bill".
