Before we go all nutzy cuckoo! cuckoo! over the new same old faces in the Barack Obama administration, and some of his rumored picks don’t thrill me either, we should keep in mind that those who have served in previous administrations, or are currently serving are the people with experience.
We’d be raising holy hell if the Obama team were only considering names we never heard of and people with no experience…like choosing a “Brownie”, who served on a horsie set board before heading up FEMA.
That worked out really well, as did all of Bush’s other appointments that amounted to no more than political patronage and payback for support.
(Speaking of FEMA. Mr. President-elect, please take FEMA the hell out of Homeland Security and put it back as a cabinet position where it belongs!)
To hell with experience or people with a modicum of common sense and doing what’s best for the country.
Some have interpreted Obama’s theme of “change” during the campaign as throwing out all the old people for fresh new faces.
That was our and/or the press’ conclusion jumping.
More logical, “change” meant out with the Bush Doctrine, killing the Constitution, signing statements, fiats, hating average Americans and only loving the wealthy and corporations and every other evil afflicting the Bush administration, and dragging the country into the depths of worldwide animus and depression -- both psychologically and economically.
Below is a link to an Associated Press story that lists all the current possible who will be whos, who are under consideration.
