"Unless U.S. Army generals are supposed to be spraying fungicide on the walls and crawling under beds to set rattraps, the slovenly conditions at Walter Reed are not their fault. The military is nominally in charge of Walter Reed, but ? because of civil service rules put into place by Democrats ? the maintenance crew can’t be fired.
If the general “in charge” can’t fire the people not doing their jobs, I don’t know why he is being held responsible for them not doing their jobs."
Many on here attack teacher unions; how about the same zeal for the Civil Service?
Someone in here attacks all unions, but somehow manages to make an exception for teacher unions.
And that’s the thing we always see with Republicans. They’re very harsh for others, but they themselves are special and the rules don’t apply to them.
We see the same thing here. Hey, the general can hardly be expected to stomp on the cockroaches himself.
Hey, Bush can hardly be expected to find the missing wmd himself.
What happened to accountabiliy? What happened to “the buck stops here”?
