First Draft – Bush Says: Fire Karen Hughes!

February 9, 2006

First Draft – Bush Says: Fire Karen Hughes!

One of the interesting innovations that we have put forth is a new website, called expectmore.gov. It’s a program where — it’s a website where we start to put the measurement results up for everybody to see. Nothing like transparency into the federal bureaucracy to determine whether or not a program is working. And so I think you’ll find it innovative — I do — that the White House has put this website up. And you’ll be able to see whether or not results are being achieved for the money spent.

Holden adds the following:

So this morning I paid a visit to expectmore.gov and clicked on their link to programs that are not performing. What did I find? Listed among those programs judged to be performing poorly was Department of State’s Public Diplomacy program headed by none other than Karen Hughes. Let’s fire her ass!
