Untitled[edit]

Peter Orszag could not have been "appointed" on 15th December 2008 both because President Obama was not president than, and wasn't yet confirmed by the senate. He technically couldn't have even been nominated at that date, as nomination is an official term which would require presidential action. The line should read that the President-elected announced he would nominate Peter Orszag on 15th December 2008, or that he was selected on that date for nomination. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.127.112.247 (talk) 01:35, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Does anyone have a citation for the "over 600 employees" reference? I believe "approximately 500" would be more accurate. I'll search for a reference on that. - Walkiped 17:45, 26 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Found it. Director Bolten's Congressional testimony of March 24, 2004. - Walkiped 18:04, 26 Sep 2004 (UTC)

the first external link[edit]

The first external link is either mislabeled or misdirected, because it says it goes to the organization's website, which to me would mean OMB's website, but instead it goes to the website of the White House.

Here's a copy of the wording of the link:

" External links

   Office of Management and Budget - organization's web site"

It goes to the website of the White House.

The OMB is part of the Executive Office of the President of the United States (basically, the White House), hence, its website is a sub-site under the White House's site. --Cybercobra (talk) 18:03, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
