Not a single official in the Government came to the funeral.
The post was created last fall and intended to vest responsibility for the agency in a single public official.
Granting control over $145 billion in public money to a single official is, at the very least, unwise.
"I don't know of a single former official who has come back and worked so prominently for a vice president," he said.
He had not spoken to a single official or relief worker.
"And every single public official will find a way to pull down the shade."
"We already have a lot of developmental and jayvee games without a single official," he said.
Such decisions must be built upon public consensus, not the opinion of any single elected official.
Incredibly, not a single official has been held responsible for these acts.
And under the present rules no single official has the authority to set things right.
