Well, This is Encouraging

A description of the President's leadership team, with him at the Vineyard.
[Ben] Rhodes has risen from being an obscure and failed fiction writer to formulating foreign and national security policy for Obama precisely because he is willing to his superiors' bidding regardless of facts. He has a history of using whatever talents he has with the pen to do so.

A few years ago he had drafted the Iraq Study Group report on the causes and mishaps of the Iraq War to focus on Israel -- despite the fact that Israel was not part of the scope of the mission the Baker-Hamilton Iraq Study Group was given. Witnesses and experts called by the Committee were appalled.

Obama's top-ranking adviser [in] Martha's Vineyard [Anita Breckenridge] is a former Illinois political operative who drove him around the state during his Senate campaign a decade ago and then was his personal secretary outside the Oval Office....

Tommy “Hey Dude, that was like two years ago” Vietor also went from driver/flunky to a top post at the National Security Council. No military, geopolitical, diplomatic, intelligence experience required.
It's good to know that we have a country where, regardless of education or experience, you can be anything you want to be. You just have to kiss the right boots.

Well, loafers. One doubts the President has ever worn a pair of boots.

It's social mobility at its best. The thugs become royalty. What's not to like about that kind of system? Barring the rioting and plagues.

Clearly President isn't the only position a wannabe can rise from obscurity to reach.

Isn't this a great country?

This is why taking the commenters from various blogs and putting them into positions in DC, would hardly make the US run worse. In fact a lot better, since bloggers and their readers are in the upper 25% of people who pay attention.

I think you're aiming waaayyy too low for where Xerxes wants to be kissed in return for his *benevolence*.
