It's Even Worse Than We Thought

…if this is to be believed.

From Fox News comes this report about a book (which I wouldn’t buy if my life depended on it) written by former Obama administration flunky, Steven Rattner.

Former Obama administration car czar Steven Rattner is coming out with a new book that depicts him swashbuckling through the financial crisis and also shows Obama as “out to get” the car companies and the administration making political decisions about how to deal with bankrupt automakers GM and Chrysler…

…-Rattner describes presidential political adviser David Axelrod coming to car meetings armed with poll data to support the takeover and Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel identify Congressmen in whose districts large Chrysler facilities were located.

…-Rattner said Obama was frustrated with the auto companies from the start: “Why can’t they make a Corolla?” he has Obama asking.

YEESH. Why can’t they just make Corollas? Smartest President evah!

    The “Why can’t they just make Corollas?” line reminds me of an old quote from Gerry Faust when he coached at ND. He was getting beat (again) and his line to the offense went something like, “Don’t we have a bomb play we can use?” We all know how that tenure ended. Kind of the in-over-their-heads example, I guess.

    I think it was Vodkapundit Stephen Green where I read the observation that such books are rare this early in a presidency. Which leads to the conclusion that (choose the most appropriate answer):

    a. Steven Ratner is more of a horse’s patoot than previously realized
    b. The Obama Administration is even more dysfunctional than it appears
    c. The Media have been really lax in their coverage of this administration, acting more as PR than reporters
    d. All of the above

    Color me skeptical. You get this sort of thing all the time with former administration officials, no matter who the President was. And they all have the same basic story: I’m great; administration sucks; not my fault; they are a bunch of idiots.
