Obama Unwittingly Creates Another ‘Department of Irony’

Only in Washington:

President Barack Obama on Saturday named Jeffrey Zients, a longtime management consultant, as chief performance officer to head an effort to streamline government and cut costs.

The selection of Zients comes after Obama’s first choice for the newly created position, Nancy Killefer, withdrew in February over tax problems. Zients, a founder and managing partner of the investment firm Portfolio Logic, will also serve as a deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Several new government jobs have been created to help “streamline” the government. That’s just so… so… typical.
