Bush Fiscal 2009 Budget Blogging, Part 3

04 Feb 2008

One final post tonight about the Bush fiscal 2009 budget: Where the hell was OMB Director Jim Nussle?

I can understand him not being on yesterday's Sunday talk shows.  Those producers probably didn't want the OMB director of the outgoing administration when they could get presidential candidates just before Super Tuesday.  And, in following the tradition set by the Bush administration, the White House almost certainly didn't want him to appear anyway.

But how about today when, for one brief shining moment, the Bush fiscal 2009 was the story (unless you were a New York Giants fan)?

Maybe I missed him, but I didn't see Nussle or any other member of the Bush economic team on the air waves pushing the president's budget.
