What could possibly be causing problems for the Obama administration?

How many files are being misdirected?

How many inquiries are going unanswered?

How many orders are just being slowed down as much as possible?

"Bush appointees "burrow" into fed bureaucracy

A total of 139 Bush Administration political appointees were able to secure permanent jobs in the federal bureaucracy between 2005 and 2009, according to a new U.S. General Accounting Office report.

In a technique known in Washington, D.C., as "burrowing," 32 political appointees found career jobs with the U.S. Department of Justice, and 17 landed jobs with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The GAO did report that 117 of those securing permanent jobs did so through "fair and open competition," with impropriety unearthed in just seven cases.

The watchdog agency appeared to defend the practice, although Cabinet secretaries of both parties frequently complain that their policies are undermined by subordinates who are holdovers from past administrations."
