Anyone know much about this guy?
He was twice head of OMB, in last two years of Clinton, and under Obama, as well as later being Obama’s chief of staff.
Clearly very bright, but no financial markets background, but maybe that doesn’t matter as much now. Obama clearly thinks budget fights are going to be an ongoing matter and wants someone with a strong brief in those fights on his side.
Orthodox Jew, according to Wikipedia
Yup. Timothy is getting really behind on his taxes and said he needed the time off to catch up.
. . . a new king is crowned!
Hmmmm. I see a pattern here.....
Unless he cheated on his taxes, he is ineligible! [in this regime]
I’d rather have Jack Link...love his jerky.(plus he probably understands economics better,too)
And what are Mr. Off’s ( Lew) finance qualifications that would support his nomination, other than having his nose up Obama’s arse?
Did he cheat on his taxes too? That seems to be a requirement now.
He’s only eligible if he owes back taxes.
I must be tired and the dyslexia is kicking in. This is the 2nd time this afternoon I’ve read the article title as “Jew Lack”.
Folks and FRiends,
The word is getting around the net that Obammie and his Commies may enact a little known part of the 1968 Gun Control act that gives the Secretary of the Treasury to ban the importation of firearms.
This would greatly reduce the number and types of firearms we have available to us and would greatly overload US manufacturers of firearms, which could result in year-long waiting periods due to back-ordering.
WE NEED TO GET PREPARED TO PUT UP THE MOST VALIANT NON-VIOLENT FIGHT OF OUR LIVES TO RESIST THE TYRANNICAL ACTIONS OF THE OUTRIGHT COMMUNISTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Larry Kudlow had a segment on his show about Clueless Lew. Steve Forbes called Lew, a taxer, a regulator, and a weak dollar supporter. Aka a Barry azz kisser. Kudlow also related a story that Lew was a major distraction at the Bonor / Soetoro cliff talks. Apparently Lew shouted NO to every Bonor proposal. Bonor couldn’t take it and walked out ending the talks. Lew spent 1 year in the private sector and the rest of his life bouncing from one job to another in gov’t. Lew don’t know Jack. Total Barry brown nosing clone.
We have learned that Lew is pretty much the definition of a Wonk.
One wonders how many were asked and turned down the position. I think only a fool would accept that job under Obama
