WASHINGTON (CNN) - President-elect Barack Obama on Wednesday will announce his selection for the role of "chief performance officer," a newly created position that will work to scrub the federal budget and reform
government, a Democratic official told CNN.

The person will "help put us on a path to fiscal discipline," the official said.

    Well...I am pleased. Someone to actually establish accountability within our government...the folks we pay. What a novel idea. Now this is leading and leading by example. Thank you PE Obama.

    So just where, Ralph, did you read that Obama bans earmarks? In fact, Obama was one of the biggest earmarkers for IL while he spent his two-something days in the senate!

    Umm... the news. He is refusing to sign the stimulus package if it has earmarks.

    Wouldn't it be great if Americans would support their president when he is trying to do right by us rather than constantly attacking? What a great nation we could be.
