Obama to outline second-term tech plan for 'smarter' government
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will describe on Monday his second-term plan for "smarter government" by using technology and data to deliver services faster and save taxpayers money, the White House said.
Obama will meet privately with his cabinet on Monday morning about the plan and then make public remarks at 11:50 a.m. (1550 GMT).
The White House said the plan would build on progress made so far in opening up government data to entrepreneurs and in modernizing government services.

save money? so we can cut spending?
“smarter” = bigger. Next!
An oxymoron like "gay rights.
What he really means is doing everything he can to eliminate all this needless "separation of powers" and "limited government" nonsense and streamline the federal government so that when it wants to commandeer something (like your rights) or come after you for not acquiescing, it can do it quickly and efficiently
No, he means these contractors are going to pay the us government for giving them our private data. We still pay for bloated government, and Obama gets an additional stream of revenue to spread around to FOB’s.
Who is even listening to his idiot anymore?
Another “important” speech from the chief narcissist.
No, like the NSA.
The SA is to come.
Islam. It is all about islam, one way or the other. It will be hidden in there somewhere.
‘Smarter government’ requires lots and lots of turnover, strict term limits, and preventing career politicians as much as possible. Among other things, this ensures that people elected to public office have other skills and expertise that they use to support themselves.
Chip implants. Smart meters for people to insure equality for all.
And thus the Bay Area techies who have been writing him all those big checks get their payoff.
Actually I have been expecting this move for some time.
How do you overcome the argument that Communism has failed every time it’s been tried?
“The proper technology to centrally manage an economy did not exist then. But with today’s high-tech tools and software, it should be a snap for the best and the brightest to pull this off.”
Just waiting for SAP to release their Five Year Plan Module...
Garbage in garbage out.
Maybe it’s time to start generating more garbage?
Smarter Government = collection of more personal data.
Yep. “Smarter” = euphemism for more control.
Lies mixed with the truth to deceive the gullible
Opening up government data to entrepreneurs and in modernizing government services.
Thank You Much
Partial Government control is Socialism.
Total Government control is Communism.
B. Hussein Obama is a Communist for his Obamacare.
BTW, if you doubt that Obama does not have total control of you, just try not paying for Federally mandated insurance, or the fine.
Nothing good will come of this.
When you see those IBM ads about “building a smarter planet”, THIS is what they are talking about.
Smarter government would only happen if he resigned (and took Biden with him). That would up the IQ of the government by many points.
I hate those ads. Having worked at IBM at one point in my career - they’re particularly grating. IBM thinks that they’re WAY smarter than they actually are in my opinion.
“save money? so we can cut spending?”
No. Save money so we can hire more government workers.
Technology is neither smart or dumb. It is a force multiplier. Improving tech in govt, will only multiply its stupidity.
If you want smart govt., How about we replace the stupid people with smarter ones ?
So we are to expect somehow lying lawyers (redundant I know) will somehow know enough about technology to improve government?
Where have they been during a time when, the department of energy has not generated a watt of electricity, the department of education has not educated a single student, the border patrol has allowed 10, 20, 30, 40 million (pick your favorite number) criminal trespassers to sneak into this country, the state department has never solved the Israel vs the camel jockey conflict, ...
The fact we even allow lawyers in government and expect solutions to exist, proves we are completely willing to accept excessive mediocrity.
NSA and DOJ will be running it...
“[S]marter government” is merely ObamaSpeak for Big Government...
This is the epitome of Liberal thinking and collectiveist ideals.
Smarter for a liberal means that since intelligence is collective you add more morons tot he pile and you have collectively made the mass of people “smarter”....
The Conservative individualist realises that you have to take the group IQ and divide it by the number of people in the organisation to somewhat determine the average IQ of the government stormtrooper that you have to interface with.
Liberals cannot divide because “Math is hard” and “Feelings rule”
So for a conservative the best way to increase the intelligence of the government is to cut the dead dumb wood out of there and keep the smart cookies which increases the end result average intelligence PER person involved. Since the smart people make up a small percentage the more you cut the dumb wood out of government the smarter you make it.
The idiot liberals just add more dumb wood to the pile, not realizing that a pile of crap is still a pile of crap no matter how much more crap you add to it.
10,000 Employees with a 100 IQ is “smarter” than 1,000 employees with a 130 IQ.
Of course do the math of the IQ per person...
he gonna quit?
So long as Obonbog Bozo and his LIEberal asshole buddies are running the show, government will continue to get meaner and more intrusive.
Now way in Hell government will get smarter with this evil bunch in control!
Is he finally dumping Joe Biden?
Our first gay foreigner POTUS is a lame duck. If our equally lame GOP reps want to keep their jobs, they had better tell us exactly how they plan to hobble Reggie's Boyfriend but good for his last two years. Clue: Stop Paying For It, you spineless ani!
BTW, just WTF was Reggie Love doing on the Making Africa Safe for Gay Marriage Promotion/African Speech Junket? $100 Million for what? The Reggie/Barry Play Dates?
Michelle, baby. Put that size 13 High-Heel brogan down on Barry's Down-Low neck. This be a disgrace, Chile!
*Maya Angelou, I sees your pomes and I raises you, baby!
Hmmmm...I smell huge contract awards to Apple, Google, FB, Cisco...and the rest of the Silicon Valley cartel.
Will all Bozo’s team get a frontal lobotomy? Then doesn’t that mean they’ll all be zombies?
Too late. They’ve already got that glassy-eyed monster look as they stagger down the halls of government.
He means government that will deliver services more quickly - to democrat voters. The rest of us - thats where saving money comes in.
The scary part is that when he was reading his teleprompter speech he’s really thinking, “Im going to make government smarter.” He’s such a narcissist that he might even think he is the first elected official to talk about this scheme. This is what happens when you surround yourself with “Yes” folks and nobody in his inner circle has the courage to say, the emperor has no clothes. Sadly, Barry’s only going to get worse, more defiant and will tell even bolder lies. He’s beyond redemption, because the White House is only ‘wide awake’ to play games on the American people. It’s just one big joke for them. As if they’re playing a practical joke on the USA and they’re laughing at us.
