Since I have not ever really been disagreable with Mike Johanns to say much about him on this Blog one way or another, I was really struck by his comments in the Lincoln Journal Star today.
“I haven’t had a boss for a long, long time. I was a partner in a law firm in my 20s, then was an elected official,” Johanns said during a telephone conversation this week as he traveled from a fundraising breakfast in Lincoln to a luncheon.
Excuse me Mike but I must differ with you and respectfully point out that the entire time you were an elected official you had a boss.
That's right Mikey, Me and every other Nebraskan that hired you to the position that you occupied at the time.
I guess you are to high faluting now to remember High School Civics.
Oh Mikey, by the way you still work for Me.
Me and every single American. You serve at the liesure of the President and he is your boss that is true, but the President works for "We the People".
I truely am dissappointed in the comments you made to the Journal Star Mr. Secretary, it reveals a calous and cavelier nature that implies that "We the People" are somehow subjugated to you and not the other way around.
This is not Jolly Ole' England
