Job number one of the next Obama administration would appear to be the ousting of FHFA chief Ed DeMarco, who has blocked Treasury's efforts for principal reductions for troubled mortgages. Doing the job he was hired to do, DeMarco contends such moves sound nice, but have proven to be worse than existing programs at reducing foreclosures and saving the taxpayer money.

    If you lower the bad mortgages, then I expect you to lower mine too. All you are doing is resetting the bar.

    I happen to know that job one on day one of Obama's second term is to focus on jobs, jobs, jobs. He's planning to call in the finest minds--Warren Buffett, Immelt of GE and he's going to hold a seance involving Steve Jobs and they're going to "focus like a laser" on jobs and how to create them at a jobs summit!

    If I've told you once, Tony, I've told you a million times. Get that tongue out of your cheek.
