    “Hiteshew’s office will study the state of public pensions and help retirement systems evaluate their financial conditions, and it will look into the growing costs of retiree healthcare.”

    On a particularly bad day during the 2008 financial meltdown a news report on the radio stated that President Bush and Vice President Cheney were closely watching the market. &nbspI suppose that report was intended to instill confidence. &nbspWhat I visualized was Bush and Cheney sitting on a sofa in the Oval Office watching the market news on television and saying “Look at that son-of-a-* drop!”. &nbspI think this newest office at its very best could only work about that well.

    Every time I hear President Drone on and on about the need for more infrastructure spending I am reminded of the stimulus bill. Like a parent scolding a teenager asking for more money, I just wanted to say “What happened to the first Eight hundred and fifty BILLION dollars I gave you”
