"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Binders Won't Do It

Mark Steyn, with Hugh Hewitt yesterday:

MS: Well look, Obama has run all his life as the most promising…he’s run on promise. He became the president of the Harvard Law thing, Review, on promise. He hadn’t done anything. He got the Nobel Peace Price on promise. He was elected president on promise. This is the first time in his life when he’s actually got a record, and he’s got to stand by that record. And the problem is he’s got nothing to offer for the future. He keeps saying this lame line, 100,000 new teachers. Nobody seriously thinks that the problem with America’s hideous, wretched, mediocre education system is that it needs more money or more teachers. He’s basically ignoring his first term, he’s got nothing to say about his second term, and he’s still talking about Bush as if Bush left office just four days ago. This is a disaster of a campaign, and none of the left’s desperate attempts to clutch at straws, clutching at binders, going down to Staples and clutching the binder from the top shelf until they all topple down on top of you. The binders aren’t going to do it for you.

Exactly so.   Your resume will only take you so far.   After that, you actually have to do the job.
