Jacob Lew, Choice For Treasury

According to the National Journal, “President Obama’s choice of White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew as the next Treasury secretary underscores his intention to play rough with Republicans in a series of upcoming budget fights over the ceiling on the country’s borrowing, automatic spending cuts known as sequestration, and a stopgap bill to fund the government. The next Treasury secretary will be a lead player in shaping the negotiating strategy.” SKIP TO MY LEW National Journal continues, “The former aide to House Speaker Tip O’Neill has liberal instincts when it comes to budget policy but is steeped in experience in fiscal matters. His Washington credentials—stints as White House chief of staff, OMB director, a deputy secretary of State and a variety of positions on the Hill.” WINNING PENMANSHIP NOT REQUIREMENT Jack Lew’s illegible, squiggly signature is getting a lot of play.  On “The Colbert Report,” Colbert asked, ”Is this even a signature, or did he just draw Charlie Brown and give up after the hair?”
