What a surprise

Bush's new budget chief, replacing Josh Bolton who became chief of staff, is Rob Portman, previously the trade rep. Portman's # 2 moves up to be the new trade rep.

Budget expert Stan Collender's first two points in discussing the Portman appointment were as follows:

"1. Not much budget experience

2. Loyalty to the president may be his biggest asset."

How unusual for this Administration.

I'd add, that Bush sure has a way of getting fresh blood into the Administration, doesn't he. It's a shame that the line about the deck chairs at the Titanic has become such an overused cliche.
