“These are naive idiots who’ve come out of academia and have never done anything real in their lives, and they are actually in power. These are the people we never let in the room when we had serious business to do. Now they’re running the country.” ~ Pat Caddell
Caddell, who has worked on a number of Democrat presidential campaigns, including Biden's in 1988, was describing the Obama administration and was referring back to his days working in the Carter White House. While I would agree his take on the current administration is extremely accurate, I would add that I don't believe the Carter folks were completely successful in keeping the idiots out of the room.
