... as many have been saying all along. He would like to keep things just as they are for a while.

Quote:
White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel gave the game away back in November with his observation that:

"You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. What I mean by that is it's an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before. This is an opportunity…And this crisis provides the opportunity for us, as I would say, the opportunity to do things that you could not do before."

Emanuel even helpfully specified the issues where the opportunity would be most helpful to the new administration – “health care area, energy area, education area, fiscal area, tax area, regulatory reform area - things that we had postponed for too long that were long-term are now immediate and must be dealt with.”
