You know, it seems there is no end to the meddling. Now our exalted leader even feels it is his responsibility to choose jobs for people.

In a recent interview discussing his plans to rein in "massive risk taking" in the U.S. Financial sector, he made the statement that "We don't want every college graduate with aptitude in mathematics to become a derivatives trader".

He went on to callously say that those who would have found jobs in finance would have to look elsewhere. He suggested they should try engineering.

Okay. First of all, who is the "we" he is so fond of invoking? Does he presume that all of us share his desire to "remake America" in his own image?

And is he so uninformed as to believe that someone with a college degree in finance can be miraculously transformed into an engineer?

It makes sense that he should be so naïve about the working world. In keeping with his now legendary hubris, the "Intelligentsia President" who's never had a real job is now a career expert.
