"The Best and the Brightest" Now Running the Country

An email from my daughter. I didn't see the show or verify the figures but the figures look about right.

Thanks, Mary Jo

Did you happen to catch a recent Glenn Beck 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!!!! I'm gonna go out on a limb here, I know, but I'm gonna go ahead and predict....we are toast.

Merle, check this out on Politifact:

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

Never trust a report from a CNN, Fox or MSNBC Opinionist without verifying!
