Obamacare website fixer is former consultant at Romney's Bain

How is this for irony? After spending 2012 scourging Mitt Romney as a heartless capitalist for working at Bain & Co., President Obama is now betting on another former Bain consultant, Jeffrey Zients, to rescue his trouble-plagued Healthcare.gov website.

Obama named Zients, currently the acting director of the Office of Management and Budget, to lead the "tech surge" to address the many problems with website. "Jeff will provide short-term advice, assessments and recommendations," Press Secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday.

Zients previously worked at the management consulting firm Bain & Co., from August 1988 to June 1990. This was the same company that got Romney, who joined Bain in 1991, labeled as a "vulture capitalist" during the election.

Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

Obama has a distressingly low proportion of appointees, with business backgrounds.

So yes, going to somebody with a track record of achievement is an act of

desperation, for the Obama corrupt bunch.

The CGI firm was obviously given a sole source "sweetheart" contract, because their executive was a school crony of Michelle,

Sooooo! :pondering: The Obamacare mess is Romney's fault. :slappy:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
