Spoilage

Via Instapundit a few weeks ago was this report about how the Obama Administration was setting up to conduct an ideological purge of the federal government. Some people think this is a problem but I agree with a Right Wing News writer that it’s a problem only if it does not set a precedent for the next President. If President Obama wants to bring back the spoils system and discard the civil service rules, that’s a transformation I can support.

I expect, though, that as usual a Democratic Party Administration will evade such rules without effort or cost while a GOP Administration will be pilloried for even suggesting it. Ah well.

the gop (geriatric old phools) would never have the will to reciprocate. it’s the gop that is the root problem; the dems are just a symptom. people want strong leadership, not white gloved pansies.

Sadly, that’s probably correct. I simply don’t understand why the GOP leadership is so weak. What’s bizarre is how dualistic it is — the Democratic Party is friendly to our foreign enemies and ruthless with their domestic enemies, while it is the other way around for the GOP.

i sometimes think a better way to run the country is to put the dems in charge of domestic policy, but on an allowance. and let the gop run foreign affairs. they get to be the mommy we get to be the daddy.
