Obama is failing as CEO of America, Inc. (May 19, 2013)
CEOs of large organizations hire competent managers for their units, set goals and establish clear metrics for evaluating performance. As in politics, competition in business is tough, and CEOs must set ethical boundaries for their managers’ conduct. In all this, the CEO’s personal conduct is critical. Early in his presidency, Mr. Obama flaunted American constitutional tradition by pushing through an unpopular and massive piece of major social legislation, ObamaCare, without any bipartisan compromise and not even a consensus. And he relied on a legislative sleight of hand to pass the Senate. And then he lied about it.
Simply, Mr. Obama’s hard left agenda requires him to treat the Constitution and Congress as mere inconveniences – expediency is his ethical standard.
