Orszag resurfaces: Awkward! 

Hi!..... Are you thinking what we're thinking?             (ap photo)

It's been a week since the world was titillated and perplexed by news of the White House budget director's complicated personal life, so he was due for a comeback. And anyway, the federal budget presentation is coming up in a few weeks so best to get the first public appearance post-love child out of the way, right?

Peter Orszag, who's pretty low profile anyway but has been largely invisible for the past week, appeared this morning in the Diplomatic Reception Room with President Obama and members of the White House economic team for an announcement on bank fees.

It was pool-only and one pooler told Beltway Confidential that Orszag looked self-conscious and awkward. Another said the dude just looked smug. In any case, it couldn't have been easy. Orszag -- welcome back!

Mmmm. OMB after dark.     (ap)
