The Disaster that is SecState Tillerson
There is a long list of problems associated with the current administration’s utter lack of knowledge about, or interest in, governing, but one of the most obvious and concerning at the moment is the fact that we currently lack a functioning State Department. Dan Drezner explains: My so-called Secretary of State.
My only quibble with Drzener’s piece is this:
It’s nice that Rex Tillerson found a job to transition from CEO of ExxonMobil to retirement. But maybe he should just hand over that job to someone who actually wants it and knows what to do with it.
I totally agree with his criticisms of Tillerson. My quibble is that if he quits, which I agree that he should, I am not convinced that the President will, in turn, appoint someone who will know what to do with the job.
