See Obama? Real leaders quit when they screw up as bad as you have.

or something.

Jeez. I don't think you'd ever see a politician do that is the US. Haven't followed this story very closely but how exactly did the government dark up here?

South Korean PM to quit over ferry

Hmm. They have Republicans in South Korea too.

Oh, ferry, like the boat. Nevermind.

I didn't get it. And then I did.

I don't know why he's resigning. Its not like he drove the ferry

It's just the PM, and it doesn't change the power structure in the government. It's not as though their President resigned.

Mugato: bigsteve3OOO: Honorable thing to do.  Obama should get out his notebook.

If the South Korean guy resigns over letting a ferry sink on his watch, then surely Obama should have to resign for letting 9/11 happen on his watch.

You mean when Pol Pot invaded Pearl harbor? We didn't quit then, why should they quit now?

It must be nice to be in a country that is free enough to allow water bottles to be thrown at officials. They did this to the airline officials too.

Uh, 9/11 did not happen on Obama's watch.  Clinton was president at the time.  I'm pretty sure.   It definitely wasn't Bush.  Remember when Rudy Giuliani assured us that there had been no terrorist attacks during Bush's tenure?  He should know.

To be fair, he said that there were no terrorist attacks after 9/11. Just like how there were no nuclear accidents after Fukishima.

The Prime Minister of South Korea is not like the PM of Canada. He's not the chief executive.
He's more like a combination of Vice President and Chief of Staff.

If the libtards had just let Alan Alda drop the bomb this whole mess would have been avoided.

no but I'm guessing that the offices in charge of making sure these ferrys' lifeboats were in operating order and that they weren't overloaded with unstable cargo fell short in their duties. probably some payoffs involved to certain inspectors too.

there were indeed payoffs to get more cargo on the ship. The ship was also improperly modified which caused stability issues.

/in Korea

what's the conversion of Benghazis to the SK ferry?
 
2014-04-27 12:08:22 AM
It is irresponsible for a PM to quit over this.  It lets the government agencies get away with causing this by allowing their boss to take the blame.  Not going to solve any problems by blaming the wrong person.

Pretty much.

FTA: The day after the disaster, Mr Chung was booed and someone threw a water bottle at him when he visited grieving parents.

That sounds like people just looking for someone to blame.  Doesn't matter who, because it's really just about having someone to vent frustration on, regardless if that person has anything to do with it.

/thanks Obama

I'm guessing the South Korean PM is just a figurehead to distract the average S. Korean from the wrangling of parliament and the permanent civil service.

Tyrone Slothrop: The_Forensicator: If only our leadership would follow this example.

So would Reagan over Iran Contra.

Obama would resign, but he'd do it over domestic spying, not over the ACA or any of the other things crazy right wingers jerk off about before going to sleep.

And lets not forget most of the current GOP Congresspersons, Senators, and governors, as well as more than a few Democrats.

And not least is our friend Forensicator himself who, if being wrong was cause for resigning, would immediately resign from Fark (if not life itself) never to be seen again.
