The tea-leaves are still floating on the tepid water forming a sign until the water is pored out and they spell the truth.
There is one body of government that elects its president on an annual basis. Yes every year its electorate votes. In its 64 years 10 people have each served for 4 consecutive years.
You remember the past prediction by Dr Peter "In a hierarchically structured administration, people tend to be promoted up to their level of incompetence,.....The cream rises until it sours." Or as I like to say, they get kicked upstairs before they have a chance to screw up anymore.
Lest we forget...Obama was elected to the Illinois Senate in 1996 (with dubious Chicago thug assistance), and then to the U.S. Senate in 2004, beating Republican candidate Alan Keyes. Obama shot to national fame after delivering a keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic national convention. He became a US Senator in 2005 and with that under his belt Obama announced in February of 2007 that he would run for president in 2008. He was sworn in as US President in 2009.
Sounds like the Peter Principal to me. Just don't let me hang around too long.
Obama has a gift - he is an orator, but so were Jay and the Americans
Only in America
Land of opportunity, yeah
Only in America
Can a kid without a cent
Get a break and maybe grow up to be President
All of his critical legislative initiatives, Stimulus bills, Health care, Energy all begin to kick in AFTER his first term has ended. A Peter Principal mandate.
This leaves him with several alternatives:
A - He runs for a second term and has a good possibility (even though the bills have not kicked in) of bringing his party down. But lets take that a step further, does he care? A Peter Principal addage.
B - In 2010 the democrats lose control and he runs in 2012 with the caveat, "but I don't have support for my great ideas, they were not given a chance". "Always blame someone else", yes I can hear both Saul Alinsky and Dr. Peter here.
The Prediction: Obama will cede as much power, money and responsibility the UN as possible. These will include long term mandates that would sound like entitlement programs. In what sounded more like a campaign stump Obama stated in his speech at the UN ...
"We have also re-engaged the United Nations. We have paid our bills (fyi $8.3 billion to the UN) We have joined the Human Rights Council. We have signed the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. We have fully embraced the Millennium Development Goals." Followed by a litany of "we will save and fix everything on the planet stuff" ....go read it for yourself.
There is one body of government that elects its president on an annual basis. Yes every year its electorate votes. In its 64 years 10 people have each served for 4 consecutive years. That body is the United Nations.
UN President elections are in June.
Nothing like the Peter Principal when your biding to be Earth President.
Unbridled experimentation has its consequences.
