Obamateurism of the Day
posted at 8:05 am on January 17, 2012 by Ed Morrissey
When you go to a government office, do you find the hardest-working folks you’ve ever seen?
Go talk to the skilled professionals in government who are serving their country — and by the way, you won’t meet harder-working folks than some of the folks in these federal agencies[.]
I’ve met a few hard working people on occasion at government agencies, but it’s not usually the norm. I’d guess that most Americans have had the same overall experience at places like the IRS, Medicare, Social Security, OSHA, and so on. In fact, making that assertion makes the President sound a wee bit out of touch, especially since — as the top federal government employee — he’s been most visible for the past year at lavish fundraising galas and on the golf course.
Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at email@example.com with the quote and the link to the Obamateurism. I’ll post the best Obamateurisms on a daily basis, depending on how many I receive. Include a link to your blog, and I’ll give some link love as well. And unlike Slate, I promise to end the feature when Barack Obama leaves office.
