First day jitters?

It was the first day on the job for new White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew. But it wasn't actually his first day at the White House. In his former position as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Lew was responsible for overseeing the preparation of the federal budget and financial management of the Executive Office of the President.

    Let's do this team! We've got a job to do for the american people. I am confident we will have a congress that will be overwhelmingly democratic, and finally be able to get this country moving.

    Let's send turn these corporate lap-dog GOP/Tea Potty Clowns out to pasture for good in Nov. 2012. The american people are counting on it, and this president needs a congress that he can work with. Not the current spitball throwing, elementary name calling idiots in the House.
