QOTD: "What is a staff for? Surely a competent staff would have set up an effective monitoring and reporting system so that accurate and timely information about website problems would reach the White House. Surely at the first signs of trouble, an effective trouble-shooting response from the White House would delve into the issues, develop some action plans, and also inform the President and senior staff about any threat to the scheduled rollout. But apparently none of this happened, and at least from what we see so far in public, the President is OK with that. No heads are rolling. No one is being taken to the White House woodshed. There are reports that the President has vented, but “no drama Obama” is apparently still turning the other cheek. The President is content to keep working with the team he’s got...

...There is nothing that any president needs more than a team of competent people around him who can keep him and his key initiatives on track. President Obama is in his fifth year in office, and he isn’t getting the level of performance from his staff you’d need to be an effective principal of a middle school. At this point, that failure doesn’t just reflect badly on the staff; it reflects on the man who selected them. More and more people in the United States and beyond are asking the obvious and painful question: Why can’t the President of the United States find and keep a minimally competent staff?" --Walter Russell Mead

Remember that the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) has many nicknames, usually with the "L" standing for "Lies." "Bureau of Lies and Statistics" has been most popular.

Frankly, anyone looking at the numbers would have known that something was off in the October 2012 report. Ezra Klein came up with the neologism "jobber" (jobs + birther). I guess Klein and Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart and the rest will be apologizing today, no?
