Just one thing about Obama

I like him. I really do. He's, well, nice.

But I am old, cranky, and pragmatic, and nice doesn't cut it any more for me.

I want to hire someone who can do the job well. You know, right the first time. That's my chief complaint about our CIC right now. Didn't do it right the first time.

Obama needs experience, if only in the way of the world. He talks pretty, and that's nice.

But nice doesn't cut it for me any more.

Jimmy Carter was nice. Idealistic, sweet, yes.

And one of the most ineffective presidents we ever had. In fact, he's still out there making silly, inexperienced mistakes that sound like he never quite matured into his twenties.

And Obama reminds me of Jimmy Carter.

Clinton may be evil in petticoats, but Obama is nice.

And nice doesn't cut it for me any more.

Note on April 1 post: Chesty Morgan was one of my nicknames when I was a teenager. She was a "nudie" actress and played Secret Agent 73FF in some racy movies when I was growing up.

I wasn't even a 36AA at the time.

Still am not.

As a confirmed Chicagoan, I still believe in the professionals in a smoke-filled room. They, at least, know a lot better than nice!
