is it any wonder his cabinet is equally bad at running this nation as he is on the international front. This was sent to me by a friend that also is concerned where we are headed, and if we have any chance of changing direction. I don't have any answers for him.


Did you happen to catch Glenn Beck's show ? He had a graph up that showed past presidents and the percentage of each president's cabinet appointees who had previously worked in the private sector. You know a real life business, not a government job? Remember what that is? A private business???

Roosevelt - 38%
Taft - 40%
Wilson - 52%
Harding - 49%
Coolidge - 48%
Hoover - 42%
FDR - 50%
Truman - 50%
Eisenhower - 57%
Kennedy - 30%
LBJ - 47%
Nixon - 53%
Ford - 42%
Carter - 32%
Reagan - 56%
GHWB - 51%
Clinton - 39%
GWB - 55%

And the Winner is .........................

Obama - 8%

YEP, EIGHT PERCENT!!!!!!!!!!!! And these are the guys holding a "job summit"
this week? This ought to go really well!!!!

Note that an independent review of Beck's claim found one-third of Obama's Cabinet with private sector experience and the author of the piece that Beck used for his claim has admitted that his analysis was incorrect.
