Republicans will not be able to go after new HHS Secretary (former trash sorter) Sylvia Mathews Burwell politically, on substance, because she is young, female and attractive.

Really?

The plot keeps thickening on Rhodes Scholar, level trash inspector Sylvia Burwell:

"The agency Burwell heads, the Office of Management and Budget, is responsible for the president’s budget. But OMB also has another, lesser-known responsibility: fact-checking presidential speeches. Every proposed presidential utterance is scrubbed for accuracy by OMB."

Let HHS nominee Sylvia Burwell explain Obamacare lie:

“if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan.”

Burwell was OMB director when Obama declared on Sept. 26, 2013: “Now, let’s start with the fact that even before the Affordable Care Act fully takes effect, about 85 percent of Americans already have health insurance — either through their job, or through Medicare, or through the individual market. So if you’re one of these folks, it’s reasonable that you might worry whether health-care reform is going to create changes that are a problem for you — especially when you’re bombarded with all sorts of fear-mongering. So the first thing you need to know is this: If you already have health care, you don’t have to do anything.”

"Burwell should explain to Congress and the American people how her office allowed blatant falsehoods to get into presidential speeches, including whether political aides overruled career policy advisers who warned that the president’s claims were untrue." - Marc Thiessen, Washington Post

The photo did remind me of those quizzes where you guess which of these beautiful women used to be men.

With Sec. Kerry, is he Lurch, or is he Mr. Ed - the talking horse.    wink

I did not know that about OMB and fact checking.

===================

Baraq's Jay Carney would seem to be immune from OMB fact checking , , , speaking of which , , , http://www.bizpacreview.com/2014/04/12/magazine-reveals-jay-carneys-kitchen-decorated-with-soviet-era-propaganda-posters-112076

In the first sentence of this clip, the Pres. swerved into a point I have long been trying to make, that their economic record goes back to:

"ever since we've been in public office"

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2014/04/16/obama_we_sometimes_sound_like_a_broken_record_on_the_economy.html

And the country's policy direction has been ever since they've been in power. This goes back "6, 7, 8 years...", as he alludes.
  
The Obama / Leftist / Democratic / Government-centric economic record goes back to the day that Democrats took control of congress, Nov 2006 / Jan 2007, back when unemployment was 4.6% and workforce participation was millions ahead of where we are now.  These policies have brought on epic failure, besides crash, putting our economy on what looks like a permanently slower growth path with fewer and fewer people participating.  He didn't inherit the crash only from Bush; he inherited the collapse from himself, a congress led by Pelosi-Reid-Obama-Biden and Hillary.  That is when the political control arrow switched directions in Washington, not at his inauguration in 2009.

His policy answer now:  More of the same!
