More Controversial Obama Appointments
by Stephen Lendman
Obama chooses the worst and most disreputable.
Throughout his tenure, he ignored the best, brightest, most honorable and well qualified. He chose cabinet and other top picks he should have spurned.
He did again. He addressed reporters in the White House East Room. He "announc(ed nominations for) three outstanding individuals to help us tackle some of our most important challenges."
He chose Sylvia Burwell as new Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director. She replaces Jeffrey Zients. She's president of the Walmart Foundation.
Previously she was Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Global Development Program president. She prioritized profit making over good will.
In 2001, she joined the Gates Foundation. From 2002 - 2006, she was executive vice president, CEO and executive director.
