    Default Now that Obama returns 0 for 3,

    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. (See http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2009/dec/02/glenn-beck/beck-says-less-10-percent-obama-cabinet-members-ha/)
