Transportation Sec. Ray LaHood leaving Obama admin: ‘You should go out while they’re applauding’

Another Cabinet member is on the way out. Does Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood plan to envy the Chinese government from the private sector? He tells the Associated Press he has no “specific plans” and just wants to “go out while they’re applauding.”

Thanks for the giggles, Ray!

Oh boy:

    Applauding? maybe the unions are clapping… all i saw was a guy who had a vendetta and was a bully singling out Toyota unfairly for a problem that didn’t exist. Toyota went along, but LaHood’s entire agenda in the Toyota vendetta was to kill Toyota in order to boost GM’s sales. He’s just another thug. Good riddance.

    Could we stop calling someone that’s been in politics for well over 20 or 30 years a “public servant?” At some point, usually after a few years, they’re in it for the money and power. Most always well before hitting the national stage.

    Politicians stay in the game so long because they’d have no idea how to live in the labyrinth of laws and regulations they’ve strangled us with.

      When you get paid for something, you are not doing some public calling. Yeah, he makes 200k per year to be a “servant”. Whatever.
