Skip to comments.Gorelick sees major challenges for Obama administration
Posted on 11/12/2008 8:58:31 AM PST by STARWISE
President-elect Barack Obama will be taking office in January, and his transition team will have plenty to deal with. Jamie S. Gorelick, a partner at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP and former deputy U.S. attorney general, said at the The Deal's M&A Outlook 2009 conference on Tuesday that the president-elect will take a centrist stance on policy targeted to restart the economy.
His centrist stance can be seen in his unnatural calmness during crises of his campaigning as well as in his resistance to partisan and personal attacks on the campaign trail, Gorelick said.
She added that she has "never seen [a time] where regulation and public policy will dictate the success of deals."
So, what kind of candidates in Obama's administration does Gorelick think he is looking for?
She says people with diverse backgrounds who will challenge his views. He wants people to be able to tell him something is wrong, Gorelick continued.
On the economic front, Gorelick said the president-elect will likely have a multipronged plan to stimulate the economy.
She said he will likely have a short-term economic plan that will include tax cuts and an extension of unemployment benefits to get money in the marketplace.
In the long term, she said Obama's administration will focus on regulatory policy for issues that may address mortgage problems as well as the impact of investment banks becoming holding companies.
But whatever regulation changes are made in the Obama administration, Gorelick said, "We do not want to undermine innovation and growth." -

I want thet drugs this women is on sent to me in bulk
Absolutely .. this cretin needs to be jailed!
The Mistress of Disaster, having been summoned by the messiah to serve as his legal handmaiden as she did for the Clintons, holds court with the press
Did the author seriously say that Obama is a centrist?
She is truely the most evil of all.
This woman is the Forrest Gump of Democratic party corruption and disaster.
So two national disasters is not enough.
We have to keep her a position of power to see what she can screw up next?
For the good of all citizens, this woman should be kept in a straight jacket in a padded room.
Her overstatement of Fannie Mae's financial stability to boost her bonus checks helped to lead to the current banking collapse.
How about putting her in charge of the Department of Energy. What could go wrong with the agency that oversees every nuclear reactor in the country?
Our new attorney general and clintonite. Change we can believe in. Yes we can.
Jumpstart the economy? HA
I’m not buying one discretionary item or spending one discretionary dollar for the next four years. Except ammo until Jan.....
.......Sweet Mother of God, this hag is back.
That’s the difference between you and me on the one hand, and Tom Kean Senior, RINO ex-governor of New Jersey and Chairman of the 9-11 Commission.
He thinks you and I should just “butt out” on issues involving Ms. Gorelick’s competence.
And that, really is the difference between conservatives and grass roots Republicans on the on hand, and RINOS and Democrats on the other.
RINOS and Democrats suffer from the same intellegence and morality defects.
Gorelick says Hussein wants administrative people from diverse backgrounds who will challenge his views and tell him when something is wrong.
Yeah, sure. We know what he does with people who don’t agree: he throws them off the plane.
Any commentary from this women has no bearing on reality.
She belongs in an orange jumpsuit and leg shackles.
LOL.......sorry I should have scrolled down first.
Whorelick, just go away!
This is mainly a marketing gimmick. No one on the left will object to BHO's plans. Anyone on the right who complains will be branded a far-right nasty and mean-spirited extremist for disagreeing with a centrist plan. The characterization is only accurate in the sense that BHO is splitting the difference between National Socialist and Soviet Socialist and planning to govern from the "center" midway between those two versions of socialism.
We're on the same page. Starve the Beast (whether or not it's the best policy, it's the only pro-freedom policy we can boost on our own). I don't mind a stronger economic downturn if it helps to slow the spread of communism or socialism in our country. Anything I can do within the law to weaken the least qualified and most anti-American president in our history is a good thing. If the country survives the foreign dangers of the next four years, I'd like the domestic progress toward a people's utopia to be as slow as possible.
” His centrist stance can be seen in his unnatural calmness during crises of his campaigning ..”
“ He wants people to be able to tell him something is wrong,”
Gorelick sounds like she’s describing a jellyfish that’s
mentally checked out .
“Present “ Elect Obama has no history of decision making or leadership or spine or work ethic or quick reaction.
I dread the thought of this guy in a crisis.
First, he’ll go to the gym and then he’ll wait for his handlers ( The Central Committee ) to tell him what to do.
And then , he’ll shoot some hoops.
Then someone will write words for him to say...
"Crises" during a campaign? Is she high? And is she really allowed to remain a Lawyer in the U.S.A. ??? Wait'll she gets a cushy Cabinet Job with B. Hussein Obama, YOU KNOW that's coming. This country is really in for it for the next 4 years; hell, I'm just wondering about the next 4 months at this point. I may be forced to just go back to thinking 24 hours at a time, either that or unplug the TV.
The only good Gorelick is one that is passed on
New definition of Centrist:
The center of Capitalism and Communism is Socialism.
Republicans, Clinton alumni among Cabinet prospects (GORELICK on list!!)
This woman is a criminal. Things are going to be very, very bad.
Appropriate room mate for Chucky. They could argue over leadership of the cell.
“Centrist.” Appointees and advisors who “will challenge his views.”
The anesthetization of America continues apace.
Repeat after me: Obama is a centrist. Obama is a centrist.
Able Danger, 9-11 Report, Gorelick, and so much more...
Click the picture...
This country is going to fall off a cliff before Memorial Day recess.
We sure did, and God bless you for all
your hard work recording the purposeful
internal subversion of our government
and beloved country.
Thank you so much for your encouragement, dear STARWISE!
