Have you heard? There’s a supply chain crisis looming in this country. Good thing we have a man with a wealth of experience in this department to fix this complex issue.
Or do we?
Drie jaar gelede, the only people who ever heard of Pete Buttigieg were the residents of South Bend, Ind., where he served as mayor of this college town of about 100,000 mense.
South Bend, which will never be confused with Gotham, has a bus station with a fleet of 60 buses, no major railways, and fewer than 100 full-time transit employees.
So who better for Team Biden to nominate as Transportation Secretary than Mayor Pete? It’s only a sprawling government agency with 58,000 werknemers. Om dit in perspektief te plaas, that’s more than half the population of South Bend itself!
Skielik, Buttigieg went from the management of $ 10 miljoen aan $ 85 billion – that’s billion with a B – overnight.
En nou, amper 10 months in, Buttigieg has his first crisis on his hands: A massive supply chain breakdown exploding across the country that will affect every American, particularly the low and middle class. Hundreds of ships wait off the coasts. They can’t unload their cargo.
And when that cargo finally reaches port, there aren’t enough workers and truckers to get the goods onto the trucks and out.
Yet all the media is talking about is Buttigieg becoming a new father. Just do a Google search and you’ll see what I mean.
