In the “you can’t make this stuff up” department…Barack Obama – the man whose job it is to build political capital for his party, to curry favor with foreign nations, build America into a great power, protect all of its people from government excess and enhance our quality of life through a cooperative effort with the legislative branch, with his agencies, and with his cabinet – had this to say about his hand-chosen campaign appointees:
“I could do any job better than the people I hire to do them.”
I think that is the best explanation of the state of mind of Barack Obama that I’ve ever seen. Out of the mouth of the man himself. He knows more than the rest of us…even his closest friends. If we don’t get on the bandwagon, we’re turning away the best man for the job.
