President Obama puts his comfort over the country’s needs
Debra J. Saunders writes at Rasmussen Reports
Even though America is fighting wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, members of President Obama’s Cabinet are three times more likely to have attended law school than boot camp… maybe this is a class issue. Maybe Obama surrounds himself with like-minded alumni of faculty lounges and law review journals — seven Cabinet members and one Cabinet-rank official are law school grads — when he ought to be looking harder among America’s heroes and old warhorses for advice. Maybe, since America is at war, Obama should look a little harder outside his rarefied comfort zone.
Recognizing my own strengths and weaknesses I would rather surround myself professionally with a majority of people with different experiences and fields of knowledge to compensate for what I know are my weaknesses.
President Obama perhaps believes he has no weaknesses or he does not desire genuine Men of War indicating what his shortcomings are.
