White House officials miss the order of leadership

Walking onto the platform for an event at the White House on cutting waste, three Obama administration officials came out in the wrong order.

On June 13, the announcer first introduced Jacob Lew, the director of the Office of Management and Budget; then Earl Devaney, chairman of the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board; and finally Vice President Joe Biden.

The three men walked out in a different order. Biden led the way, then Lew, and Devaney.

As Lew began his speech, he joked to Biden, “For a minute I thought it was a promotion.”

Biden responded: “I thought I’d have to work.”
