Obama Administration: Pod People?

Investors Business Daily (aka IBD) has an interesting editorial on another point I've been flogging on and off for nearly 2 years. Part of the reason we're still mired in an unemployment mess in the U.S. is due to the nearly complete lack of business experience on the part of both President Obama and his feeble cabinet, all of whom are long on ideology and short on what it takes to run a successful business enterprise large or small.

Money Quote:
With the exception of one year after school, the president is a career government employee. Stops as a community organizer, civil rights lawyer and law lecturer don't count for private-sector experiences. They were merely steps to bigger government jobs.
Read the rest here if you haven't already clicked the link above.

BTW, most of IBD is behind a pay wall. If you like accurate business news this paper, including its online version, and the Wall Street Journal (also mostly behind a pay wall online) are your newspapers of choice, although the latter's news pages tend to tilt left.
