There  is nothing subtle about that.  That was about as blunt as possible.

Now, let's wait and see if she follows through with a smack to the side of some heads.

It's a shame that career public servants need to qualify themselves like this now, but more like this.
 
2020-11-24 7:07:02 PM  
Also, why'd she have to go and make things so complicated?

I think she was the one that got a box to stand on when she got to the podium though she probably didn't need it.  Biden seemed to joke that it should come back out for John Kerry (who is 6' 4").

Because the way you're actin' like you're somebody else gets her frustrated

Kickass opening. I have hopes for this woman and the work she'll do.

The whole crew. Seeing these choices after the last administration feels like enjoying a slice of warm, toasty, fresh bread after eating maggoty crusts for four years.

So competence and duty are dog whistles for Democrats?

Going to put that in the encyclopedia under, "Let me get one thing absolutely the fark clear before we start..."

Who didn't. (Though I never admitted I liked the music.)

She's not a very good ventriloquist if she has to put a mask over the dummy.

Is she stealing a line from Obama?

"The first time President Obama met with his US Attorneys, he told us, "I appointed you but you don't serve me. You serve the American people. And I expect you to act with independence & integrity." None of us ever forgot that."

Tweeted three years ago.

What a sorry state we're in where incoming staff members are tasked with reminding the American people what their job and function is suppose to be and how our government was meant to function in the first place.

Solid dig, this is more just a commentary of the current political landscape at just how much damage has been done.

I think she's reiterating the ethical standard for those inside the beltway.

It could have been way more blunt.

She could have said "Unlike Donald J Trump who expected everyone in the Federal Government to Work for Him, Joe Biden ...

A bit bunt for the lefty reader and yet still too subtle for the average righty.

I think they are allergic to nuance.

Or they aren't all that bright.

I mean, odds are that most of 'em will be around the 'cheap white bread that's a little past the sell-by date but hasn't gone moldy yet' level, but yeah, after four years of Trump, I'll farking tolerate that for a little while, at least.

No, it's the way things work in America.

I understand it can be hard to remember the Obama administration and past administrations. It's been about 400 years of Trump these past 4 years. Today was a long month.

At the first cabinet meeting, they should go in a circle praising the American people.

A new staff member is doing that but I don't think it's sad. I think it's farking great, and something that should happen on a recurring basis.

Wait. You're telling me that's not a photo of her one-woman show "Me And Mr. Bozos" where she makes him sing while she drinks a glass of water...?

First we have to get the train back on the tracks. THEN we can start moving forward.

So far the new people are golden in my book. Good experienced people to help us out of this mess and elevate us again.

Over on the other side I have seen the headlines. She has a brother-in-law who works for a law firm that donated to Soros. He is a unmentionable who once did this or that. The smear and lie campaign is up and running and with a full head of steam.

I was a bit surprised they are not on the Kerry gunboat thing yet. I figured that would be #1.

IOW it is going just as we knew it would.

Not sure this is a burn on Biden... Isn't this what she was told to do when she was hired...? You know, like it's her job or something? This is supposed to be how normal government officials conduct themselves... Or did we forget?

More referencing than stealing, I think.

According to Wikipedia she is 8 and a half feet tall.

My take away was it was her rebuking the people they are replacing because the entire trump team has been more for trump than for the USA.

So she was saying that Biden picked the best team to serve the USA not kiss his boots.

My take away at least.

Look for asterisk. "This statement does not apply to Hunter, Burisma, the whole grifter Biden family, and China. Or the payoff from Moscow mayors wife.

Maybe the guy behind her on the podium is the brother of Jacob Wohl's security guard.
