An example of government decision making.
Once upon a time there was a President who wanted to go play golf.
He called in his Weather Czar, VP Joe Biden, and asked when would be the next day he could be sure there would be no rain.
Biden assured him that there was absolutely no chance of rain for tomorrow. So the President and Reverend Al Sharpton departed early the next morning for a round of golf.
After they teed off they were riding and when they stopped before the next shot a farmer who was plowing with his mule, John K, in the adjacent field hollered and said, Mr. President you need to return immediately to the White house as we will shortly be having a torrential rain storm.
Obama responded in his usual caustic way, My VP and Weather Czar Joe Biden is the best forecaster in the world. He is extremely experienced, well-educated and paid a very high salary to give me advice. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him so we will finish our round of golf
Before they finished the second hole the bottom fell out as torrential rain fell from the sky and Obama and Sharpton were totally soaked.
Their entire entourage, including the Secret Service, chuckled upon seeing them in such a drenched condition. Furious, Obama returned to the White House and fired Biden as his Weather Czar and told him to go hide out of his sight!
Then Obama summoned the farmer & offered him the prestigious & high paying role of his new Weather Czar.
The farmer said, “Mr. President, I do not know anything about weather forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey, John K. If I see his ears drooping, it means, with 100% certainty that it will rain.”
So Obama hired John K, the donkey.
And thus began the practice of hiring asses to work in the Obama government & occupy its highest & most influential advisory positions. Now John K is Secretary of State and negotiating a treaty with Iran.
