Zing! President Obama will reportedly announce his nominee for Budget Director today.


Evidently, he is tapping Walmart’s Sylvia Mathews Burwell for the job.



Citizens are rightly confused. A Budget Director … for what?










Aching sides: WH claims Obama’s budget delayed by ‘manufactured crises’ like sequester

Conservatives craft handy #ObamaBudgetExcuse list for our lazy POTUS

Leadership: Obama misses budget filing deadline for 4th time in 5 years

      But…but…we don’t LIKE WalMart, right??? Not now??? OK…WalMart execs can SAVE us!!! All Hail WalMart….because Dear Leader loves them!!! We were against it before we were for it!!! Pppfffttt…how these morons survive their oh-so-special brand of moonbat stoopidity? To borrow a quote from the Tootsie Pop owl…the world may never know…

        Also, Ryan’s office put out a statement commending the Obama administration for the choice. So that has to make the leftists head explode even more.

    Obama meant Budgie Director, who will be in charge of Barry, the White House parakeet.

    The director will also coordinate the parakeet’s training and Secret Service detail.

            Remember, there’s a difference between distilled Usenet bitterness and distilled Twitchy bitterness. The Usenet stuff is still potent, but otherwise goes well with a good medium roast in the right proportions. The Twitchy stuff, well…I would recommend the lightest roast possible, but even that’s a bit of a stretch. Otherwise you’ll be making frequent core dumps, if you catch my drift. 😉

    Like your answer Gloves. It must be Budgie because there has been no budget since Barry took office. This is just another waste of money.

    This article leaves out a couple of key points.

    The new nominee was chosen as the result of a secret but highly competitive air guitar contest.

    And the actual title is “Air Budget Director”.

    I can’t wait to see who the Sec. of Energy ‘person’ is. I’m anticipating a Yoda-like greenie. I’m thinking that the position ought to be re-titled, something like…, oh…, Secretary of Exploding Batteries, or Secretary of Transfers to Cronies. Whoever it is, they will certainly believe that our energy needs can be met by harnessing unicorn farts.

    They will also be prepared, or oblivious to the fact that they will be holding the bag for the sundry loan failures that are sure to occur, not that the media will make much of it. Of course the President will offer laurels to Chu upon his departure, lauding (larding?) him for his significant accomplishments (“Let’s paint roofs white!”, “Let’s get fuel prices up to Euro level!”).

    The non-stop buffoonery of this administration would be laughable if it were private enterprise, unfortunately it is strangling the country to death.

    I think a new title is in order.
    “Director of the Office of Management and Non-Budget”… no, wait,

    Don’t you need a budget to have a need for a director?

    Obviously her “job” will be to deflect questions about why there hasn’t been a budget for 4+ years. I’ll take that job for one half of whatever she’s being paid. I can bullshit with the best of them.
