Yes indeed, the guy who has been president for almost five years and wasted trillions making a monstrous government even larger, more intrusive and expensive is now heading up a movement to create a leaner, smarter and more cost effective government.

All I have to add is “HAHAHAHAHAHA!”

President Barack Obama will describe on Monday his second-term plan for “smarter government” by using technology and data to deliver services faster and save taxpayers money, the White House said.

Obama will meet privately with his cabinet on Monday morning about the plan and then make public remarks at 11:50 a.m. (1550 GMT).

Is it too much to hope for that Obama will name Joe Biden to spearhead the “smart government” initiative?

Let me guess: Obama’s plan to make government smarter, leaner and cheaper will involve creating a new “Department of Smart, Lean and Cheap Government” to be budgeted at a half trillion a year.

Oh, and it’s up to “all of us” to properly implement this latest scheme — meaning he knows it won’t work and will need people to blame:

    Better yet:

    1. Fire Joe Biden.
    2. Appoint Jim DeMint to be the new Vice President.
    3. Then resign.

    All your government are belong to us !

    I simply cannot connect "smarter, leaner, cheaper" with this administration ! This MUST be one of those "the opposite of what they say is the truth" moments; STUPIDER, FATTER, MORE EXPENSIVE and INTRUSIVE ! THAT I can believe !

    Speaking of smarter; no, not the O`Stration, smart phones. I just heard on H2`s Modern Marvels, "Top 10 recent technological innovations"; the newest iPhone has more computer processing power than the entire North American Air Defense Command in 1965 !

    Indeed, methinks we've heard this meme before. Wasn't it… ah yes… Al (internet inventor man/bear/pig) Gore's super spiffy "Re-inventing Government" campaign that was going to rid us of $400 hammers and $600 toilet seats forever!!

    As I recall, Al's pals printed a couple million copies of the VEEP's profound program in a glossy color booklet (Instead of cheaper, earth friendly recycled paper) to be distributed throughout the kingdom! Sadly – but predictably – no one was interested so they sat on pallets in the Gov Printing Office 'till somebody finally hauled them to the recycler…and no one lived happily ever after.

    STUPIDER is as STUPIDER does.

    Unfortunately, thanks to John McCain, they haven't updated their app yet.
