Obama fires the head of the Minerals Management Service
When I wrote my last post on what Obama has to do at today's press conference, my Twitter follower @GStuedler wrote, "@CapehartJ... I think you hit the nail squarely on the head with that column, let's hope Obama 'listens'."
Well, an MSNBC alert on my phone an hour or so ago signaled that he has. S. Elizabeth Birnbaum, the invisible head of the hapless and somnambulant Minerals Management Service, has been fired. Good! A head needed to roll. Now, I'm looking forward to what other pieces of my advice the president will follow. Telling the military service chiefs to stand down and demanding that Congress go forward with its planned vote to repeal "don't ask don't tell" would be perfect.
