Mort Zuckerman: He's Done Everything Wrong!

Mort Zuckerman, the impressive media mogul, publisher, entrepreneur, and staunch Obama supporter, lays out an incredibly thoughtful and detailed analysis about the President's massive failures in his latest article for The Daily Beast, "He's Done Everything Wrong." It's a quick and thought provoking read. It's remarkable how tone deaf management in both the White House and Capitol Hill are these days. Here's a quick glimpse of a highlight from the article:

"In the campaign, he said he would change politics as usual. He did change them. It’s now worse than it was. I’ve now seen the kind of buying off of politicians that I’ve never seen before. It’s politically corrupt and it’s starting at the top. It’s revolting.

Five states got deals on health care—one of them was Harry Reid’s. It is disgusting, just disgusting. I’ve never seen anything like it. The unions just got them to drop the tax on Cadillac plans in the health-care bill. It was pure union politics. They just went along with it. It’s a bizarre form of political corruption. It’s bribery. I suppose they could say, that’s the system. He was supposed to change it or try to change it."
