Obama, Cabinet Picks, and Apology

I usually don't comment on political matters but I thought I would today. There is usually so much divisiveness over politics that it is a subject I like to stay away from generally except with my closest of friends. The problem with political discussions is that they too often become heated and we unfortunately begin to make value judgements on those who disagree with us. I try as much as possible to stay away from these topics at Cottonwood. My hope and goal is that no one here even knows my political leanings. My thought is that most all of us whether Republicans, Democrats, or Independents want basically the same things - a strong and safe country, a working economy, and the right balance between government protection and individual freedoms. We simply have different ideas on how to achieve these goals.

It bothered me though that President Obama felt he needed to apologize for some of the problems that were coming out about some of his Cabinet picks. Every President has had this difficulty. How can you know everything about the men and women chosen in advance? I don't think you can even though you try to find out as much as you are able. So to President Obama- no apology needed. Let's get on with business.

Thought for the day

Nobody is perfect.
