“I wouldn’t vote for Trump, much less work for him. I don’t agree with half his ideas, and the other half I don’t really believe what he said.” Matt McDonald, another Bush OMB veteran
BUDGET FACTS - Check 2000-2008
One former Republican official who worked in the Environmental Protection Agency put it this way: “You’d have to worry about your future career and the way you’re perceived in these things. You just kind of think of how he deals with people. Would you really want to work for him?”It’s the EPA so it’s an overreaching, overpowered, self extending federal empire, with its OWN ARMED ENFORCEMENT, but this CAREERIST is saying if POTUS calls you on the phone and says the NATION needs you, you go to work for ‘Joe’s Clean Up’ instead? Or. maybe, a state where you can exert power over people.
“The bottom line is Trump will be able to fill these jobs because there is a whole class of people who want these titles so badly it doesn’t matter who is president,” said a former senior George W. Bush administration official. “But these are B- or C-level people. They are honorable, but not very good. The A-level people, and there are not that many of them to begin with, mostly don’t want to work for Trump. He will cut the A-level bench of available policy talent at least in half, if not more.” .. (LIKE JOHN BOLTON?) AYFKM?
- A-level people who MISSED 9-11?
- A-level people who provided no expertise on the DAY AFTER Baghdad fell?
- A-level people who kept on driving jobs to the lowest cost in the world instead of SOLVING the real issue?
- A-level people (John Brennan) who advised Bill Clinton not to kill OBL because some other people might get hurt?
- A-level people who ALLOWED POTUS to LEAVE Iraq without resigning and sounding the horn?
- A-level people who drew a RED LINE and then crawfished on it?
- A-level people who think the deal with Iran REALLY IS A GOOD IDEA?
Where are the folks who were providing expertise during the time the USSR was being driven into the ground? These kinds of people have been INSTITUTIONALLY SCOURGED. Starting at the undergraduate level.
This makes Trump’s challenge of uniting the Republican Party urgent — and difficult. The current and former lawmakers, former GOP administration officials, policy experts and presidential transition veterans who spoke with Politico agreed that Trump will need to display a much more serious level of policy understanding and statesmanship over the next six months to demonstrate he’s the kind of boss they would really want to work for.
‘Always be around unsuccessful people because everybody will respect you’
Maybe a Media PETRIFIED that OTHER may come in and succeed can create the perception that Trump is unfit, and would be a disaster and we will have 1964 V 2.0. But the movement which has come to recognize and ACT ON THE OBJECTIVE FAILURE OF GOVERNANCE ON BEHALF OF THE PEOPLE will only be strengthened.
What was 35-50% today will be 50-65% in 2020.
The so called A-Level people Politico has been talking to are the architects of the unsustainable government we now have.
