White House “Nerd” Juggles Women
Matt | On 11, Jan 2010
CBS News reports that Peter Orszag, the White House official and the Director of the Office of Budget and Management, became the father of a baby in November from his ex-girlfriend, Claire Milonas. It’s not exactly “breaking news,” but we found out that Peter (no pun intended) had really been getting around. He broke up with Claire in March 2009 and began dating ABC News correspondent Bianna Golodryga in May. Orszag and Gologdryga are now engaged to be married. We now know that Peter left a little gift with Claire before they split and it arrived two months ago, long after Mommy and Daddy split. I’m not totally shocked because it happens everyday. Such is life. I wish the best of luck to Peter and Claire on their new baby!
The funny part is just how much of a NERD Orszag really is. I first saw him in an interview on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” in April 2009. I was almost looking for him to be wearing a pocket protector! He really knows his job and is qualified, but it was just funny to hear him talk. The media in Washington has been glorifying him in the nerd circle of Obama. So, there was a bit of a cult-ish following to him before this news broke.
If we could just get Peter to balance this BUDGET the way he’s been balancing these WOMEN … we would be all good!!
Note: Here’s Orszag discussing a bit of the healthcare debate with Charlie Rose in December.
