Allahpundit writes of Matthews:
But now that I’ve watched and seen the hurt in his eyes when he says “idiotic cerebral meritocracy,” I fear something’s died here that can never be rekindled.
Matthews’ whole remark was:
“. . . this idiotic cerebral meritocracy has got to step aside and let the people who do things take over…”
And that is the problem in a nutshell. Our government is top-heavy with people who have never “done” anything.
The Obama administration is loaded down with academics and lawyers who have spent their lives theorizing about things like economics, markets, social order and crisis management–and criticizing methods with which they disagree–but who have little practical experience in doing.
That is the crux of the problem, Obama has zero experience. All those fools who voted for Obama simply voted out of hope. But what do you do when even hope loses?
