Meet The Campaign Aide With ZERO Budget Experience That Obama Nominated As Deputy Director Of OMB

Video - Heather Higginbottom - Jan. 14, 2009

Speaking in her previous White House job, before the substantial upgrade.

This has nothing to do with politics; Republicans and Democrats are equal budgetary failures as decades of evidence demonstrates.  But wrong is wrong.  And this nomination is an embarrassment.  The most crucial time in our nation's budget history and Obama nominates a political hack with no budget experience sporting a degree from the University of Rochester and a Masters in public policy from George Washington.  She worked for John Kerry for 8 years before joining Obama's campaign.  She began her career as an advocate for public schools.

From the press release:

President Obama has settled on policy veteran Heather Higginbottom as the new deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Higginbottom, a former aide to Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., who also was policy director for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, currently serves as deputy director at the White House Domestic Policy Council.

“She understands the relationship between numbers on a ledger and the lives of real people,” Obama said when announcing her nomination for the OMB slot Friday, along with several other appointments.  “As we make cuts that are necessary to rein in the deficit, I want to make sure I’ve got Heather there so that we’re meeting our fundamental obligations to our people and to our economy as well.”



Watch her Senate confirmation testimony from last week:

Oh yeah, I forgot about "national service". Would that be the same as Obama's "mandatory voluntary national service" he eluded to in the past? Yeah, Hitler called it the Hitler Youth.

The young inexperienced White staffer in 2009 becomes a "policy veteran" according to Obama.
She must have studied policy 24/7 during those two years if that is true.
In the first video she shows clearly she's a newby.
In the second video she only shows the ability to obfuscate.
Like Obama she probably understands nothing and thus, like Obama, will go far in the sham called a government we have now.
God save America from people like Cottonbottom, Caribou Barbie and Barry Soetero.

Look at that schnozz. I've had it for the day. Near every one in congress has been caught with an under age boy or a dead girl and it shows. Obama's Chucky/Village People appointments are theater put on by the CFR with Hillary waving a gun, looks like a black revolver, in the background. Good night.

I think, in true anglo American fashion, we're supposed to be distracted by her looks, so as not to think too hard about her smarts. Kinda like, don't crunch the numbers, whip the weasil instead.

"want to take a few minute to blah blah blah " then less than a minute later "thanks" ?

Is this Obama's "Sarah Palin" ?

Is she related to the Chicago Higginbottoms? They helped finance Obama big time. They are also big into Daley. Yes, I know that the color is off but who would guess what the baby momma of Obama looked like.

Now we can really see some of what offered up Pres. B.O. from the alleyways of Chicago. Please look up comedian Johnny Witherspoon's definition about Obama not being a Black Man. This is what happens when fleas infect a kennel. Only this is an example of aggressive crime boss warfare with Hillary the second string. Murder all the soldiers and bankrupt the people. Don't worry about Congress. They are too busy sucking and mewling to react to any domestic or foreign threat. Let us STOP acting like dogs and affect the cure. Be brave or become a slave Congress has no class and they have no balls.
