    Postal supervisors: Obama swipe “a kick to the chest”

    Federal news, government operations, agency management, pay & benefits - FederalTimes.com

    The National Association of Postal Supervisors has fired back at President Barack Obama for dragging the U.S. Postal Service further into the health care debate. In an Aug. 14 letter, NAPS President Ted Keating accused Obama of using the Postal Service as a “scapegoat” and unfairly painting it as “an example of inefficiency” during a health care town hall meeting last week. Obama told a crowd in Portsmouth, N.H., Aug. 11 that private health care insurance providers should be able to compete with a government-run public option because “UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. … It’s the Post Office that’s always having problems.”
    Oops! That's one union that won't be backing Dear Leader in the future.

    Well, the postal union will just need to get over it. President Obama spoke the truth. The USPS is a model of inefficiency and bureaucracy, and something really needs to be done to make the USPS profitable once again.

    The repeated crude rhetoric makes it difficult to take your posts seriously.

    We get it. You think Obama is comparable to Kim Jon Il. How original.

    I'm glad others are turned off by celticlord's obsession with calling Obama "Dear Leader."

    And thus, why we don't need a USHS.

    This new rhetoric to tone down the rhetoric is simply empty rhetoric.

    Obama has the knack to make stupid mistakes lik this, yet, the media does not seem to hold his intelligence to the same standard as the last one.

    Not entirely a bad idea....anybody who has ever been involved with government ways of doing business will tell you that waste is rampant...

    My 12 years on active duty Navy was my initial exposure to waste. I saw more of it in the schools in Arizona. If the money is there, they will find ways to spend it. Right now many schools and colleges are running a surplus business that supports many full time employees. They are replacing video and audio mixers, cameras, mixing boards, computers and monitors, etc. not because they NEED to, but because they WANT to replace what they have with whatever NEW crap is on the market. University employees are not going to be any more productive with flat screen monitors than with CRT monitors. If something gets REALLY old, or fails and needs repair, yes, get the new stuff, but wholesale replacement of technology just because new stuff is available is a waste of money. I have purchased security video equipment for pennies on the dollar, and the VCR's those systems use are top of the line. Imagine paying around a thousand dollars for a VCR that can record up to 72 hours, using it less than a year, then selling it for ONE dollar.
    And to scale this up a bit, we have thousands of airplanes sitting in the desert in Arizona, in storage, supposedly ready to use if needed. Maybe we didn't need to build so many of certain models in the first place?

    Re: Postal supervisors: Obama swipe “a kick to the chest”

    I'm pretty sure it's more about making careless statements which alienate groups, which is something Obama seems pretty frickin' good at.
