Obama’s OMB Director Jeff Zients Caught Hiding the Truth – Video

President's New Budget Liar

Barack Obama’s Office of Management and Budget Director Jeffrey Zients testified before Congress on Barack Obama’s proposed budget.  House Republicans spent a good deal of time and effort trying to get a straight answer on when our budget would balance by grilling Zients on Wednesday.  Unfortunately, Zients is another Obama liar.  He has no intention of telling you when, under Barack Obama’s budget proposals, the budget would balance, because under Obama’s ludicrous budget offering, it never does.  Let me say this again.  Under Barack Obama’s budget proposals, they merely slow down the rate at which debt is accumulating, in theory, but in practice, it will not slow down since they are assuming rosy interest rates on new and existing debt, and his administration is rigging the numbers.

Here are two videos of Congressmen trying to get a straight answer from this newly-appointed Presidential Budget Liar, who will not admit on camera that the budget will never balance under these proposals.  Never.

You can take what you want from all of this, but what is clear is that Obama is not interested in upholding his oath, but instead merely running our nation into the ground in opposition to his oath.

Could This Be Another Reason Dems Want Romney?

Bain Alum and New OMB Director

The Wahington Examiner reports that Barack Obama has hired Jeffrey Zients to run his Office of Management and Budget(OMB.)  Zients is a former Bain guy, and some are now wondering if it’s possible that Zients knows where all the Romney skeletons are buried from early in his career with Bain.  While Zients’ time at Bain doesn’t directly overlap with Romney’s time there, it happens to fall neatly between.  The suggestion floating around is that he might know things about Romney, or even more generically, about Bain, that would serve as a potential hammer over the head of Romney should he get the GOP nomination. The Examiner’s take on the story that this hiring will disarm Obama with respect to Bain, since he’s now hired a Bain guy, but I find that unlikely.

Ladies and gentlemen, your guess is as good as mine, but this is what’s out there as we slip and slide our way closer to the South Carolina primary.
