Yup, we got what we paid for- or at least we all got what 53% paid for. It is not the first time I have observed, nor will it be the last time, that of US Presidents, Obama shares only with Warren Harding the following experience metric: US Senate, no Cabinet experience, no Vice President experience, no military experience, no experience as Governor. Why should we be surprised?
Excuse me: community organizer experience- but without responsibilities.
The last I heard about his community organizing accomplishments are the following: He moved in on an existing campaign to remove asbestos from a housing project. He left for Harvard. There is still asbestos in parts of the project. Oh , he did a bit of ACORN training on the side.
Aren’t you impressed?
This just makes Obama perfect for Washington. I lived and worked there for a short time – about 4 years in government – and noticed that many government people have an amazing ability to work on a project for as long as it takes until it is clear it a complete cluster. Then they move on to something new without ever taking the time to clean up the mess they were involved in creating.
