A coupla emails

No TARP oversight?‏

I read that there still is no special inspector general for the billions in rescue dollars allocated by Congress to help the economy. I read that no monitoring report has been made, in spite of the legal requirement that it be done.

This is egregiously unacceptable.

We taxpayers have entrusted you with enormous sums to right this wrecked economy. We did this because we knew it was necessary for the greater good. But you must do your part to make certain that our trust is not misplaced. Even the appearance of waste, fraud, or cronyism will severely damage the public trust.

Are you people incompetent? Are you cynical?

Do your job.

On behalf of President Bush, thank you for your correspondence.

We appreciate hearing your views and welcome your suggestions.

Due to the large volume of e-mail received, the White House cannot respond to every message.

Thank you again for taking the time to write.

For details see the Washington Post.

Update: They've picked somebody for the job: Neil Barofsky. He must still be confirmed by Congress.
