Commentary of the Day

David S. Mazel, on Jennifer Rubin:

Hubris meet unprofessional.

The President is on holiday and has the nerve to tell those who are working to work harder. That’s poor management, but then we know that the President has very limited experience running anything. Then, as if out of a bad skit, Senator Grassley sends a message that is reminiscent of a spoiled child. Such childishness on both parts. Oy.

It’s bad form for a President to spend so much time talking and not working, as our President is wont to do. But it’s equally bad form for a Senator to publicize his own rantings and in a such an unprofessional format (for a Senator, that is, not so for a teenager). Couldn’t Mr. Grassey call the White House or send an email? At least he wouldn’t be limited to what, 160-characters or such. And maybe the message would read a bit better, too.

And what’s worse is these same guys are working on our nation’s health care. Good grief. Everyone had better start taking better care of themselves, because if this is any indication, when it comes to health care, we are all on own.

Good luck to all of us.
