Seriously, this is how he wants it to go down? I respect the fact that Andrew Card has served this country. Public service is an honorable and difficult thing and the chief of staff suffers some of the worst hours in the country. But seriously, this is simply absurd!
The Oval Office symbolizes…the Constitution, the hopes and dreams, and I’m going to say democracy. And when you have a dress code in the Supreme Court and a dress code on the floor of the Senate, floor of the House, I think it’s appropriate to have an expectation that there will be a dress code that respects the office of the President.
Mr. Card, I’ve got a pro-tip for ya. If you want to hold future administrations to a very high standard of professionalism and demand that they show proper respect to the office and the country…..
YOU SHOULD PROBABLY NOT HAVE SPENT YOUR TIME IN THE WHITE HOUSE SYSTEMATICALLY DISMANTLING THE CONSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK WITHIN WHICH AFORESAID OFFICE OPERATES.
I simply cannot fathom how he has the chutzpah to go there. We can’t all be Ronald Reagan or George Bush. We can’t all spend valuable time and man-hours focusing on the appearance of professionalism in lieu of actually doing a competent job. I’ll tell ya what, Andy. I’ll get President Obama to wear a jacket if you can get George W. Bush to dedicate his life to fixing the disasters he created.
