Here's one last post before I move everything over to the MuNu site. I thought it might be appropriate to do a little politics for the last time. Yesterday, I was out at noon time and heard Rush Limbaugh talking about this article in the Washington Post:
If you want a sneak preview of how Kerry will run things if he's elected, just take a look at how he's running his campaign.
The campaign now includes 37 separate domestic policy councils and 27 foreign policy groups, each with scores of members. The justice policy task force alone includes 195 members. The environmental group is roughly the same size, as is the agriculture and rural development council. Kerry counts more than 200 economists as his advisers.
Just look at the number of economists... 200!!! Now I ask you, when was the last time you heard even 2 economists agreeing with each other? Now multiply that by 100... You can see why Kerry has a hard time making decisions.
The other problem with this many people vying for Kerry's attention - jealousy, frustration, an inability for the "task forces" themselves to function.
One task force is still arguing whether it should be titled the council on babies, children and youth or just children and youth.
I'm beginning to think that this might be why Kerry didn't "have time" for a national security briefing that was offered to him. He's got so many other meetings going all the time, he can't be bothered right now with a minor thing like security. I guess he'll just leave that to the Bush administration. But what is he going to do if he gets elected and they aren't there anymore? Will he leave the economy to the economists? Or will he leave the national security to the Joint Chiefs? Or will the environmentalist people be left out in the global warming? It's a dilemma.
