Dick Morris Reports: Consumer Confidence Collapses

Posted by iusbvision on March 15, 2011

If you want to know what is going on with the economy today, Dick Morris has a very good explanation here.

Dick Morris was the political strategist for Bill Clinton for many years.

Speaking of the former President, Bill Clinton seems to have had enough. He is openly criticizing Obama’s mis-steps with the economy, especially the illegal offshore drilling ban, the yanking of coal permits etc.

This may have also been a political shot across the bow. The Obama Administration has been jerking Hillary around. The State Department thinks it has agreement across the administration on  Middle-East policy makes a cautious but sensible statement on the position of the United States and Obama comes out the very next day and contradicts it. This kind of thing happens too much. Niall Ferguson asked if we have two foreign policies and mocked the administration. That shows a great immaturity at the White House. It also confuses and undermines the confidence of our allies.

This has happened too many times to be an accident.

Being a cabinet Secretary is a brutal job. It is often seven days a week and 13 hours a day. Most Cabinet Secretaries last around 20 months. Obviously there are exceptions but that tells you how brutal the job can be. I have seen recent pictures of Hillary lately and she is not looking well.

I am not saying that Hillary resign because she is doing a bad job, although she is not among the best who had held the position, she should resign because the situation in the administration is intolerable and may be designed to do her political damage.
