It looks like President Obama is assisting in a friendly takeover of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), by Bain Capital.
As you may have heard, earlier this year Obama picked Jeff Zients to lead the OMB. You might not have heard that Zients worked at Bain from 1988-1990. The Zients White House biography did not originally admit that fact.
Now Obama has appointed another former Bain consultant, Boris Bershteyn, to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), which is part of the OMB. Recognizing how awkward this is for Obama’s re-election campaign, Bershteyn’s tenure at Bain has been edited out of his official White House bio. This is an obvious and glaring attempt to hide Obama’s friendly Bain takeover of the OMB.
The audacity of Obama’s hypocrisy in attempting to hide his Bain takeover of the OMB, while continuing to attack Romney’s private sector service at Bain and refusing to condemn the despicable ad by an Obama-supporting super PAC that attempts to link Romney to a woman’s death from cancer (completely unfounded), knows no bounds.
Even worse, Obama’s Bain takeover of the OMB completely undermines the core of the Obama campaign’s argument about Romney’s private-sector experience. After all, just last month last month Obama said:
“When some people question why I would challenge his Bain record, the point I’ve made there in the past is, if you’re a head of a large private-equity firm or hedge fund, your job is to make money… That’s part of the American way. That’s part of the system. But that doesn’t necessarily make you qualified to think about the economy as a whole, because as president, my job is to think about the workers. My job is to think about communities, where jobs have been outsourced.”
Obama has obviously changed his mind, and private-sector experience at Bain no longer disqualifies one from public service. The proof is in the pudding, Obama just appointed another Bain man to be head of Regulatory Affairs, arguably one of the administration positions most impactful to Americans’ lives and well-being. The Bain argument has always been a nothing-burger designed to distract the media and voters from the real issues. Obama himself just proved it.
This obviously shows that Bain Capital types and it’s Founder Mitt Romney are much more suited to fix the economic crisis America faces than the overwhelmed and inexperienced President Obama and his advisors who helped put us here. Guess Team Obama is just giving Team Romney a head start with these appointments!! Add the Ryan, Chairman of the House Budget Committee VP pick to the equation and the choice in November is clear and obvious!

Obama puts another Bain alum in his budget office … – You just can’t make this stuff up!
CBO warns of significant recession if Congress doesn’t act to avoid fiscal cliff - Predictions have worsened because Obama’s economy is so much worse than expected (Just announced another 4000 jobs lost since last week.)
Seems both the Occidental and Columbia College Records of President Obama’s show he is listed as a FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENT - and indicate that Obama attended "under the name Barry Soetoro and received financial aid as a foreign student… Connection Here? It shows a pattern of a lifetime of smoke & mirrors and lies… How can we trust him to lead our country and make decisions for us and future generations…
