Perspective

November 12th, 2013 by Vader

Putting things in perspective: March 21st 2010 to October 1 2013 is 3 years, 6 months, 10 days.  December 7, 1941 to May 8, 1945 is 3 years, 5 months, 1 day.  What this means is that in the time we were attacked at Pearl Harbor to the day Germany surrendered is not enough time for this progressive federal government to build a working webpage.

–Thus an anonymous Internet emailer.

It gets better.  

I don’t think people with strength of character like that of Bernard Schriever do very well in the Obama administration or that they remain with it for very long. A man who can say, as Obama did, “I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director” is a very small man. Small men tend to hire and retain only other small men and women.

That seems to be the brutal truth.

That Obama speech you quote: “I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters…”

…itself reads like a bit of speechwriter copy – not at all like Obama’s own wordy, parenthetical, qualified, evasive style.

What it *really* means is: “I think my new speechwriter [who wrote this] is a better speechwriter than my old speechwriters.”
