Have you ever worked for a principal who micromanaged recess, the janitorial supplies, and the phonics workbooks for second graders; or a library director who thought you didn't need 2 copies of a certain title you knew was in great demand and 3 would be better service; or an architect who thought that just by taking up space at the opera he was marketing with his magnetic personality; or a CFO who wanted to select your version of software for tracking funds; or hired a tone deaf pastor who wanted to chose all the hymns; or been married to a spouse who opined you didn't need to buy bay leaf when the jar from 1977 was still half full? Micromanagers. They are everywhere, aren't they? Especially in the White House. But really. We know for a fact that President Obama has never even run a lemonade stand, let alone a new car lot. But here he is making decisions on credit, advertising, model viability, location, and regulations for automobiles. He isn't even the one doing the micromanaging, despite the fact he's wearing that hat. Sort of makes you wonder who is? When a socialist/marxist team makes all the key economic decisions in a capitalist country, what do we have?
