Empty for a year

Transitions are hard. It's hard for people to change and even harder for institutions to change and usually any change requires either a crisis or a "change agent" to spur on the needed transformation. Sometimes you get both. When we talk about transitioning into the White House and what a monumental task it has become we're illuminating the crisis. Just filling the job openings left by the previous administration is a terrible burden on the incoming President and his staff - in fact, you actually NEED a big bloated campaign apparatus to grow head count for all the patronage you're able to dole out once you're in the Oval. A candidate that runs a lean, cost effective campaign can't take the reigns of power because he won't have enough yes men to act as cogs in the machine. CHAOS.

Even BHO, who had a huge campaign operation with lots of eager beavers willing to take a corner office in DC, could not fill the jobs at the Treasury Department for over a year. The US Treasury people!!! We're not talking AmeriCorp. or the Dept. of Ed. here - we're talking about the place where they print greenbacks. And it's like that all across Washington DC in Federal Department after Federal Department with empty seats waiting to be filled at the end of January 2017. That is the problem. That is the crisis. And Morning Joe doesn't realize it. Mark Halperin doesn't get it. Eugene Robinson is still smarting from the dig at Obama. Mika nods.

It's frightening, dangerous chaos folks, frighting, dangerous chaos.
