It’s about time, because someone needs to crack a few skulls. By my count, despite allegedly unprecedented vetting, the new pres (and the rest of us who support him) have been embarrassed by problems with at least 4 potential members of his cabinet or staff, now that Daschle and Killefer have withdrawn, following the withdrawal of Richardson (Commerce) and the trouble with Geithner (Treasury). This sucks, and Obama’s willingness to hedge on his promise to crack down on lobbyists is also discouraging and opens him up for criticism.
Don’t ge me wrong, I still think this administration is more competent and less corrupt than the more recent ones, but it still doesn’t look good for this new era, which I’m still hopeful will really be improved.
So that’s why Christian Bale comes in to his new role as the Enforcer. Tell ’em what’s what, Batman!
BTW, this didn’t take long!
