  •  Seriously you just said the military knows who (0+ / 0-)

    the CinC is and then confronted with evidence that they don't always follow the President's orders all you can come up with is that Obama is what Superman?

    •  I do not believe I said he was Superman. (0+ / 0-)

      I believe what I actually said was that Obama is not Bill Clinton.

      What has amazed me about the anger towards Obama's appointments is the realization that most people must not work at large companies, or in places where they have to work with people they do not like.

      I work with MANY (far too many) right-wing, fundamentalist Christian men. As almost the lone liberal woman here, I am forced to work with people whose ideologies disgust me. That said, they are very competent in the work they are required to do. Some of them are excellent employees and incredible producers. Some have made poor decisions in the past, but thrive under new management.

      Just because we dislike people, or think they are bad employees, does not mean that we just get rid of them for our own interests. As I said earlier, this is what George Bush did. Perhaps if he had kept more Clinton people on staff, he would not have screwed up so many things so early in his administration.

      I don't believe Obama is a super-person; but I do believe that good managers can make bad employees to great things. Sometimes. I think we should give it a chance before we cry hysterically that he sucks.
