RumSFelD: My Rules for Life (15th in a series) SERVING IN GOVERNMENT (Part 2 of 3)

--> 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)


<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$

Strive to make proposed solutions as self-executing as possible. As the
degree of discretion increases, so too does bureaucracy, delay, and expense.
*** Markbnj says ***
Refusing to understand that an air attack would not do the job alone will NOT keep you in your job.

<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
Presidential leadership needn’t
always cost money. Look for low- and no-cost options. They can be
surprisingly effective.

*** Markbnj says ***
Especially if they get the president actually listening to the people of the COUNTRY, instead of KARL ROVE.
<-- $$$ Rumsfeld Says $$$
Include others. As the late Senator Pat Moynihan (D-NY) said, “Stubborn opposition to proposals often has no
other basis than the complaining question, ‘Why wasn't I consulted?’”

*** Markbnj says ***
Perhaps the American people have a valid point?
