Old Boss Has New Job

Just got word that my former boss got a nice promotion today, and is being brought out of "retirement" after only about six months.

White House Budget Director Resigns; Jim Nussle Is Successor

AP - White House budget director Rob Portman is resigning and will be replaced by former Iowa Rep. Jim Nussle, Bush administration officials said Tuesday.

Nussle ran for governor of Iowa last year and was defeated. He has been serving in Iowa as an adviser in former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

The changes were to be announced Tuesday by President Bush.

Portman, who was a six-term congressman from Cincinnati, left his career on Capitol Hill to join the Bush administration two years ago as trade representative and was named budget director a little more than a year ago to replace Josh Bolten when he became White House chief of staff.

RDL: No; I don't have any desire to go back to work for Congress or the Administration. After nearly ten years of working some great folks in the House, I'm ready for some challenges in the private sector.

Working FOR some great folks in the House -- my previous comment made it sound like I was extorting someone;-)

Someone like you Matt should be working those guys :)

Praying that a big door of opportunity will open soon.

Blessings, Bob
