Obama Appoints Aide to Reorganize Deck Chairs on Titanic

There will soon be high-speed rail and solar panels in every pot! Where would we be without such out-of-the-box thinking?
President Obama tapped an aide to lead a "reorganization" of the federal government, communications director Dan Pfeiffer said Sunday.

Obama named Jeffrey Zients, a former CEO of the Advisory Board Company who serves as the president's Chief Performance Office (CPO), to lead an effort to find efficiencies and decrease overlap.

"The fact is that we live and do business in the information age, but the last major reorganization of the government happened in the middle of the last century," Pfeiffer wrote on the White House blog. "Over the past few decades, there has not been a business or large organization that has not rethought, retooled, and revamped how they did their job to respond to a growing, more competitive global economy and an ever-changing technology landscape."

Pfieffer framed the new initiative as keeping with the president's State of the Union address, in which Obama emphasized the need to modernize the government through increased investments in education, technology and infrastructure.
It's funny, but nobody in Obama's back-pocket media seem to ask where all that stimulus spending on infrastructure went.

This guy will come back with a report recommending cutting ten bucks out of some government program and Obama will campaign in 2012 as running a lean, cost-cutting government. And the media dolts will parrot it.
