Oh, poor, poor unemployed Team Obama workers.
It seems many in the Obama administration have been scrambling to find post-White House employment. And they’ve only got a few days left to do it; January 20 and inauguration day dawns. All the ambassadors have already been told to hit the pavement, which is probably a damn good idea.
And unfortunately, having Obama White House Work on one’s resume isn’t proving the door-opener many would’ve assumed.
Guess “far-left political aide” isn’t as in demand in the incoming Trump world as it was in the outgoing Obama land; or, no doubt, in the Hillary Clinton atmosphere many thought would have been taking over the White House in the next couple weeks.
As one former Clinton aide said to Politico, as reported by The Political Insider:
“‘It feels like there are just thousands of us trying to find a job, and there are no jobs,’ said Mira Patel, a longtime Clinton aide who went from her Senate office to the State Department and, starting last summer, her presidential campaign.”
Hmm. Wonder why.
Guess these peeps were all holding all for the 4,000 or so openings they had expected to become available under Clinton, whom they believed would win. Trump’s upset pretty much left them stranded, it seems.
And here comes the tissue-wiping part: They don’t seem to be taking the tough job market well at all.
Well, isn’t that a sad and sorry situation.
It seems these same staffers who weathered Obamacare well, when the rest of the nation was suffering, and who weathered the poor economy well, when the rest of the nation was scrambling and panicking, now find themselves in the same situation as the rest of the nation: facing economic struggles.
Welcome to the Obama economy, where private sector realities are not understood and where money, when needed, is simply printed and distributed under a fancy name like Quantitative Easing. Now the shoe’s on the other foot.
And for many in the conservative camp, or on the unemployment line, the compassion is going to be tough to offer.
