Obama -- A Bad Judge of Character

The arrogance and delusion this Obama administration has. How can Obama's spokesman say with a straight face: "the bar that we set is the highest that any administration in the country has ever set?"

He goes on to say "I'd be happy to provide you with the names of the people that have already said that this administration has laid forward in executive orders the strongest ethics and accountability rules of any administration in the history of this country."

How about "did not do their homework," "the interviewees/appointees lied or withheld crucial information," "no big deal...just a little tax problem." The road once in the White House appears bumpy for one who claims to want to take the high road in a world of scum. Obama is learning that Washington and ethics are mutually exclusive.

-- Bill Richardson out as Commerce secretary.
-- Nancy Killefer, out as chief performance officer (there's a made up job we really need).
-- Tom Daschle out as Health and Human Services secretary.
-- Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Secretary of State Mrs. Clinton would not have been confirmed if they were Republicans because of his tax problem and her husbands circle of donating friends from all over the world.
-- William Lynn, picked for No. 2 at the Defense Department, is a former lobbyist for a major defense contractor, Raytheon Co.
-- Mark Patterson, who was a lobbyist for Goldman Sachs, is now chief of staff to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.
-- William V. Corr, lobbied for the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, is in line for the deputy for the health and human services secretary.

Obama's vetting process and judgment of character leave much to be desired. He's over his head; we all knew that beforehand. On the job training for the highest office in the world...not the best thing. I hope he gets it together but there is little hope because of the people he has placed around him.

Matt 23:28 comes to mind: "ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity."
