Another, Really?!! Moment

With all the other things going on:  President Obama’s running away from Washington to Chicago; This administration making post-Hurricane Katrina look successful; The Obama Presidency throwing former President Clinton under the bus in the Sestak sleaze-fest.  You may have missed this bit of news yesterday.

I received this from the HQ NORAD/NORTHCOM GROUP on Facebook and…and…I had to laugh.  Yesterday the White House released their National Security Strategy.  On the White House Blog, the title of the post that announces the release of the strategy is, and I couldn’t make this up myself if I wanted to:

“A BLUEPRINT FOR PURSUING THE WORLD THAT WE SEEK.”

What amazes me is that we all know that there were meetings about this.  There was brain-storming.  If nothing else, this administration knows the value of a well-turned phrase so they WORK at it.  THIS is what they came up with.  It’s the best they could do.  So basically, they’re not even doing the image thing very well anymore.

    Burnout.

    Shortly after the Inauguration there was a magazine story: White House staff were bragging about their long days – in before dawn, out after midnight, email 24×7. This wasn’t to meet a crisis – it was business as usual.

    You can do that for a few days, or weeks. Keep it up for more than a month and you get real tired and start making bad calls and you don’t even know you’ve gone off the rails.

    We might conjecture they’re kept up this pace.

    Perhaps the crew in the White House is burnt out and badly in need of a three-day weekend.

    Just like their boss, perhaps?
