On the manufacturing production floor, I saw two managers up for the same promotion to the next level. One I’ll call Bob, was scurrying around the plant, rubbing elbows, talking to upper level managers, and regularly fighting emergencies on the production floor! The second I’ll call Bill was quietly talking with his people, seldom if ever seen addressing an emergency.
In short, Bob got the promotion because he was seen handling emergency after emergency. Bill seemed rather lackluster in his daily performance. Bob running around like a chicken with his head cut off because of addressing the crises he created was observed as being the better performer. Bill communicating with his workers and avoiding crisis was seen as weak and docile! Bob with his reactive approach appeared more capable and dynamic! Bill with a proactive approach appeared bland, milk toast!
Never waste a good crisis
Our President Barack Obama adheres to the Rahm Emanuel approach of “never waste a good crisis”! For such people the strategy of “never waste a good crisis” has evolved to the corollary of “never waste the opportunity to create a good crisis”! This sums up Barack Obama’s “Crisis Management Style!
Everything Barack Obama puts out before the nation is in crisis mode. If it is actually not a crisis, he makes it into one. Some things actually a crisis if not important to his agenda or could obstruct his agenda, are ignored. Obama’s Benghazi Affair is one such example!
Healthcare was a “crisis”? It was some 2700 pages pushed through in the night with about three hours left to our representatives to read it. Nancy Pelosi laughingly said we need to pass it so we can know what’s in it. Years later and we still don’t know what is in it. They laughed about Sara Palin insinuating “Death Panels” were part of this Bill few if any who voted for it read! Now economist Paul Krugman expresses the need for “death panels” which appear in Obamacare but certainly not under that name!
The Affordable Healthcare Bill was passed left with holes and dark cul-de-sacs to be manipulated after the fact. Such that the cost for Obamacare has risen to two, three, now four times what Obama projected! The shadiness and shadows in the Bill have no where near been exposed! The numerous taxes, traps and pitfalls yet to snag the people!
Even when the can is kicked down the road, postponing the crisis, Obama does not meet with his opponents to address the crisis. He waits again till the last minute crisis arises again, manipulating his opponents and the people to get his own way. He just stands over the pot and keeps stirring it, hoping his way will prevail. These are the actions of a piss poor and incompetent leader! Or perhaps a spoiled child!
Obama is running around the country hysterical, like “Chicken Little” screaming “the sky is falling.” Like a chicken with his head cut off, running directionless in circles! He is sewing fear throughout the nation! Fear mongering is the way he pushes his agenda.
Employing constant propagandist demagoguery, Obama instills fear in the people, employing the green eyed monster of jealousy and envy pitting one group against the other in class warfare! Obama’s is a negative leadership taking America to negative places, to socialism and beyond!
