(CNN) - Barack Obama would not give a timetable for when he plans to announce his cabinet appointments, but said he would make decisions with "deliberate haste."

"There is no doubt that people want to know who is going to make up our team," he said "I want to move with all deliberate haste, but I want to emphasize deliberate as well as haste."

"It's important to get it right and not be so rushed that you make it rushed," he also said.

    If he is serious about no politics, why bring his economic team in front of cameras to politic us into feeling better. Also who paid for all these folks to come together in person instead of doing it with this new technology called computing and conferencing. He was heralded as someone who uses technology, please start using it and save us some money.
