Washington (CNNMoney) – President Obama will nominate his White House chief of staff, Jacob "Jack" Lew, to be the next U.S. Treasury Secretary on Thursday, according to a White House official.
Lew, 57, has been the leading candidate for months and would be the second Treasury Secretary during the Obama administration. Obama is expected to make the announcement during an early afternoon event in the East Room of the White House.
Oooohhhhhh, nooo. Mr. Lew "irked" Chinless Mitch, therefore he is an unacceptable choice.
Republicans need to think ahead to the day they might hve the WH. Can you imagine the shrieks from the right should Democrats block John Bolton for State just because he's a whack job?
What Republicans don't like is attention to details. They don't like big numbers but no detail behind them.
It's been obvious since the general presidencial election that republicans are still going ahead with their party of NO and taking a chance they'll survive the upcoming midterms..Railing against all Pres.Obamas nominees no matter what party affiliation they run with,just because it has Pres.Obama name on it,typical obstructionism as usual!!They haven't changed nor will they unfilled their depleted numbers after midterms tells them to back down,plain,simple...Probibly more executive orders from the president to get things done and people are going to the presidents defense knowing well he's for the average Joe over the wealthy elite that republicans like to side with..Remember republicans there aren't enough wealthy voters to keep you in a seat so beware of your political careers,you've been warned!!
