Pete Buttigieg, former presidential candidate and sitting Secretary of Transportation, has been on paid leave since mid-August in the middle of the worst supply chain crisis since the OPEC oil embargo. It is a mystery why all the prices here have been skyrocketing and we have shortages of a wide swathe of goods.

Why is that dude on a paid leave after getting and accepting the position entrusted or forced on Biden to do. If he couldn't fulfill his duties and responsibilities the right thing he could and should have done was to resign and hand the reigns to someone deservedly better for the position. But for political reasons and for Joe Biden to be politically correct he couldn't fire Pete, because of he belongs in a very protected and very influential minority group and he's white at the same time; a potent combo in today's Democratic Party politics.

No worries. The more unqualified and incompetent people at the top, the faster the US decline will be

Imagine having your top leaders going missing during a crisis for "paid leave" lol

The American elite class has declined precipitously. They are just LARPing the west wing instead of doing their jobs.
