The Shmata Queen and I have been discussing/debating something. The issue is in regards to what the president should know about his employees.
There is a basic consensus regarding the former head of FEMA and his lack of qualifications for the position. What we have been mulling over is what should the president know and about whom.
I haven’t come to a final conclusion but I am leaning towards this stance. I think that the POTUS should have a familiarity with senior members of his cabinet and would include the head of FEMA within this group.
What do you think? Take it and run with it.
The issue is this. In any organization the President/CEO is the person who is ultimately responsible for the actions taken by that company. The government is no different. We know that the Federal government is composed of thousands of people who all ultimately report to the POTUS, albeit most are not direct reports.
The question is how familiar should the POTUS be with the background/experience and qualifications of the members of government and how far should that extend.
I am of the opinion that it should include his entire cabinet and key members of gov’t such as the head of FEMA.
