"missing plane news network"?
 
2014-08-29 07:55:38 PM  
Honestly, I was surprised this was Clinton and George *W*. Bush.  Bill and Bush I have always seemed pretty tight.  But then I read further in TFA and saw that Bush I is *also* involved.

I still think it's a good idea....

I'm trying to picture this happening with W and Obama in 10 or 15 years, and I'm having trouble doing that.

I think they should bring in Newt Gingrich as a guest lecturer.

Bill and Bush Sr. have done a lot of good work between them since leaving office. Good on them.

I suspect Obama and Dubya will actually be some good times during their watch.

The program's aim is to bring "motivated leaders across all sectors an opportunity to study presidential leadership and decision making and learn from key administration officials, practitioners, and leading academics,"

I've read the article twice and I'm still have no idea how this is supposed to work.

Presumably Bush II is involved in the "This is what you DON'T do" part of the program.

Whatever else you can say about him the man, he makes a great bad example.

I apologize for injecting a dose of cynicism, but I don't think this initiative will be effective. Bringing together "top people" to help front-line workers gain needed skills? I have no faith that "top people" have a clue about what is needed to the work that needs to get done. These people do not deal with skills; they deal with numbers. In my experience, they are absolutely clueless about what behaviors are needed o get the numbers they want, and they are often absolutely clueless about unintended side effects.

For a recent example of this, look no further than the recent Comcast customer service calls. "Top people" at Comcast really seemed to have no idea that their policies were reinforcing such behavior. Punishing people for the behavior that you positively reinforce is both ineffective and cruel. But my personal experience says that it's not intentional. These guys really are clueless about their products and their people. They are only looking at the bottom line and that only in the short term.

Oh, it's a much worse idea than that.  I'm sure these guys hearts are in the right place but on day one it's a program to induce people actually making good decisions to go take advice from people making poor decisions.  In a year or two it will be a program to induce business people to pay big coin to go pretend to be interested in what the top bureaucrats and political appointees have to say when they're really just networking so they can be better rent-seekers when the next round of regulation comes their industry's way.

It's because CNN obsessed over those two Malaysian Airlines flights. Now they report even small aircraft crashes from around the world.

I remember my wife's comment when they teamed up for the boxing day relief effort: "yeah, like any of that money is actually going to get there with those two involved." Same goes here. This is a tax dodge to assure their "legacy", nothing more.

You may be surprised. It's just another twist on the old idea that politics make strange bedfellows. Ex-presidents comprise a rather exclusive fraternity - a handful of men who know things no one else on Earth knows, who have seen things no one else on Earth has seen, and experienced things no one else on Earth has experienced. Disagreements on matters of policy and ideology remain, of course, but the shared experience draws them together.
