U.S. President Barack Obama floated the proposal to consolidate nine different departments, should he be re-elected. Savannah, a conservative Republican blogger in North Carolina, side-eyes the proposal: "And what is Obama going to do with a Secretary of Business? His jobs council hasn't met since the beginning of the year and he doesn't listen to the debt commission, so why would we think he'd work well with a Secretary of Business? Obama does not like to listen unless he's being told what he wants to hear, nor does he like to take responsibility for his actions. Appointing a Secretary of Business would be a way to absolve him of any blame or responsibility if something stupid were to happen. And if this is his best idea for the next four years, then why vote for him? You have a guy who's so aloof about business he wants to find another guy to fix it and another guy who owned a successful business. It's a no-brainer."
