Wow. Just… Wow
Larry Summers, former head of the National Economic Council, thought having Jarrett represent the White House was a mistake. Business leaders “felt patronized and offended by Valerie,” Summers told Woodward, largely due to her tendency to insist that she spoke for the president, and an approach to problem-solving that involved little more than scheduling multiple lunch meetings. One CEO complained to Alter that “when we go to the White House, we talk to people we wouldn’t hire.” Alter himself has likened Jarrett’s role in the White House to “the CEO putting his sister in charge of marketing.”
Or putting a former slumlord in charge of the entire presidency.
In the Obama Administration, you can completely botch the Obamacare launch, run guns to Mexican drug gangs, let four people die in Benghazi on your watch, commit egregious transgressions against freedom of the press, and break the law by targeting political opposition with IRS, call for a race war against white people and still keep your job. But insult Valerie Jarrett in an anonymous tweet? Clean out your desk.
kak·is·toc·ra·cy: – [kak-uh-stok-ruh-see] government by the worst persons; a form of government in which the worst persons are in power.
And close to 40% of the population still support this administration? Good Lord. I expect Brawndo to go on the market any day now and Fuddruckers to change its name to something inappropriate but in keeping with this exciting new era of American politics.
