President Obama Taps Another Former Bain Employee For OMB Post
Looks like President Obama has hired yet another former Bain employee for a job in his administration. From the Washington Examiner:
President Obama’s Office of Management and Budget is turning into something of a Bain alumni reunion, although you won’t hear about it from the president.
Obama picked Jeff Zients to lead the OMB earlier this year, as the attacks on Romney’s Bain Capital career were heating up in the Republican Primary. Zients worked at Bain and Company from 1988-1990, as The Washington Examiner first reported, although his White House biography made no mention of the fact.
Now Zients will be joined by another former Bain employee, as Obama appointed Boris Bershteyn to lead the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. Bershteyn’s White House biography, like that of Zients before him, also makes no mention of the Bain connection.
Of course they make no mention of Bain connections. President Obama’s campaign has consistently tried to paint Bain Capital as some sort of evil entity full of awful people that did nothing but destroy people’s lives on purpose, so they can’t really mention that now can they? Kinda blows their entire attack on them.
Of course, when he needs campaign cash or someone to to do a job for him? Bain Capital is just fine with him. Shocker.
