I’m a bit busy this morning, trying to beat a Cinderella deadline of sorts but I’ll be back later to finish up The Strategy of No Strategy (TSONS). There’s loads of examples of TSONS all over the place in the past couple of days from M.F. Global to Big Pharma to the White House. With any luck, it will all come together.
In the meantime, are cooler minds finally prevailing after getting kicked in the head? For example, what does it mean when a former president and rah-rah supporter of Barack Obama says he wouldn’t be devastated if the Republican nominee wins the White House this year? Found at Corrente, Lambert highlights Jimmy Carter’s puzzling comments:
“Former President Jimmy Carter believes Barack Obama will win a second term, but says he’d be “comfortable” with Mitt Romney in the White House because of the Republican’s past history as a “moderate.””
Of course, by “moderate” we mean “neo-liberal crypto-fascist in hock to the banks and insane with blood lust,” but never mind that. Sigh. Remember Nixon, anyone?
It’s so hard to tell the candidates apart with that description. In the meantime, I smell a performance review with a 2 rating for PBO. Six months to shape up and he’s out of there or will management speed up that timeline?
