(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.
Getting it right?!!! What a concept. And what a change from the last eight years.
That was rude! But if you really do care that was Robert Reich, a brillant economist!
I think he is making the rght decisioms....Lets give him a chance....
yes joe-6-pack there was a midget.
its a diverse team of black,white,latino,gay,str8,young,old,disabled,not disabled!
Nor should he, he has only been in the current status for 3 days, now, as he stated he has 70 something days to pull his staff together.
As usual he will be deliberate and not cave in to knee jerk reactions and calls for him to hurry and build his cabinet.
No drama Obama, remember?
Hey it begins... you've shown your prejudice and stupidity!
The ignornace of some people really astound me.... And people like you will be the first to keep quiet when they get an uplift from the changes that will be forthcoming... Some people live to be negative and criticize and not believe....
If you have nothing productive to say shut up!
I want to see some bipartisanship. Reach across that aisle. YOU SAID YOU WOULD!!! LOVE YOU BOMA!!!!
RE: "It begins..."
What is the worth of your cynicism. Dude, these decisions should take time and deliberate haste is very prudent.
My guess is that you were not one of Obama's supporters. Get with the program, slick. The election is over and it's time to move forward.
This is why I voted for this man. He thinks about what he is going to do, considers his options, and then moves quickly to get it done. Thank you for not running off half cocked.
This guy reminds me of Bush! Did anyone listen to him? How many times did he say the word 'uh?' I would say about 100 times. Then when asked why he chose Biden he said, "partly because we did it right." That's not an answer. Also, no specifics and he said things we already know. Sounds just like Bush. Why people continue to elect presidents who clearly can't handle the job just boggles my mind.
They're already trying to tell him, ie: Kerry, Dean, etc... And he's not making his mind up yet.
It's begins>>>your comment was lame. same ole comments, from dry bloggers like you.
Its great he doesnt want to Rush,He needs to take his time and get it right and choose people he will feel Comfortable with, whats wrong with that?
It wasn't a midget.
Obama appointed the Goblins to guard the Treasury.
Voldemort will be our Secretary of State, Umbridge takes Education.
I thought President-elect Obama did a great job with the press today.
I like how he asked the lady about her arm.
He seemed very stable and in control. I believe and hope he will do great things for this country.
The height-challenged man is Professor Robert Reich.
I agree with Obama. Rushing to pick a cabinet due to media pressure will lead to making a wrong choice. After 8 years of bad decisions, we don't need anymore. Take your time Obama. you have until January.
To "It begins...", get over yourself. You obviously have no intention of giving the man a chance. McCain lost (actually, he got hi a$$ handed to him). Accept it and get over it.
Shocking for someone who is all about timetables!
Awesome President-Elect. And to "It Begins"-he owes no "special favors", his campaign was paid for by his supporters not the tax-payers like your candidate.
Sounds intelligent to me. Rushing makes for mistakes!
GIVE THE MAN A CHANCE TO PROVE US RIGHT OR WRONG
Are you serious "It begins...?" Would you prefer someone to take their time and analyze people's credentials or make a quick baseless decison? Oh wait, let me guess, you are a McCain supporter and agreed 100% with his choice of Palin after only meeting her once??? I am not shocked. I, for one, am glad he will take his time...
Smart. He took such care in picking a VP and it paid off. Contrast that to McCain's hasty pick that ended up hurting him. I think taking the time to fully vet everyone is the right move...like he said, it's important to pick the right people.
Wise decision, haste makes waste and America has no time to mess up. I respect him for speaking truthfully.
Way to Go Obama! A man after my own heart.
