RumSFelD: My Rules for Life (13th in a series) DOING THE JOB IN THE WHITE HOUSE (Part 4of 4)

--> Note that all quotes titled"rumsfeld sez" comes from a document he created in 2001, entitled, "My Rules for Life" (see bottom of post for original source)

<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
Control your time. If you’re working off your in-box, you’re working
off the priorities of others. Be sure the staff is working on what you
move to them from the President, or the President will be reacting,
not leading.
*** Markbnj says ***
ANd this is Different HOW, then Karl ROVE is GOVERNING the COUNTRY NOW???

<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
Look for what’s missing. Many advisors can tell a President
how to improve what’s proposed or what’s gone amiss. Few are able to see
what isn’t there.
*** Markbnj says ***
AND Apparently YOU can't see what's MISSING EITHER!!!!

<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
Think of dealing with Congress as a “revolving door.” You’ll be
back to today’s opponents for their help tomorrow. Presidential proposals
will need a Member of Congress’ support on some issue, at some time,
regardless of philosophy, party or their positions on other issues.

Don’t allow White House links to Members to be cut because he or she may
disagree on some or even many issues.
*** Markbnj says ***
And you've already cut off 45% of the Congress and the Senate, and HOW do you expect to govern This coming January, with a MINORITY in CONGRESS????

<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
Work continuously to trim the White House staff from your first day to your last. All the pressures are to the contrary.

*** Markbnj says ***
Maybe YOU should help by resigning as soon as possible...
<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
Don’t do or say things you would not like to see on the front page of The Washington Post.
*** Markbnj says ***
And, MAYBE it's time for YOU to give them a scoop, and tell them YOU're READY to RETIRE before being Indicted as a war criminal...
