U.S. President Barack Obama plans to ask Congress for more power to shrink the federal government, a White House official said Friday.
Obama plans to speak at 11:20 a.m. about his plans to make the federal government "leaner, smarter and more consumer-friendly," the official said.
The president's proposal includes plans to combine several agencies that focus on commerce and trade.
The President may think that people are stupid.
Most people are not exceptionally bright.

Yeah, you missed one heck of a discussion. It was actually the SOS.
BTW, how are you doing now ?
(worried) The what?
@ gung hoe: I just reread well enough to see your accident report to us. I hope you recover quickly.
I'm doing well enough to work most of the time. I had to cancel some things today and rest.
This teavangelical – driven congress isn't going to give this president an inch. Their only focus is to discredit his ideas and the efforts he's made to improve our nation. What a disgrace!
DO YOU PEOPLE EVEN HAVE A CLUE ITS BIG BROTHER CHANGE AND ITS ALREADY HERE AND IN MOTION NWO!
Republicans will not allow this by a Democratic President.
Just another smoke and mirror ploy to get re-elected. The GOP won't give him what he asks for in the form he wants it, but it's all for show anyway.
