A Lew-dicrous Talent

In coming Treasury Sec. Jack Lew impresses Rich Lowry with his ability to "get paid."
Some guys have it, and some don’t. I’m referring to that special quality that makes powerful institutions want to throw fistfuls of dollars at them in senseless acts of high-priced beneficence.
Jack Lew has it like nobody’s business. You might think the bespectacled treasury-secretary nominee is just another brainy budget wonk and miss the animal magnetism that makes his employers lose all sense of financial proportion around him, paying him astronomical sums, forgiving his loans, and granting him generous golden parachutes.
Yes, Jack Lew is a rare talent — at the art of getting paid. 
Good stuff. Read it all.

If Jack Lew was worthy of being Secretary of the Treasury he would have been a CEO of a financially related entity. Instead our newly confirmed Secretary is merely skilled at the art of getting paid.. Typical of POTUS in his second do-whatever-the-hell-I-want-to-do term. Mr. Obama is building his legacy which history will show was one of no concept of leadership, no concept of humility, no concept of reconciliation. Unfortunately we the taxpayers will be left to pick up the pieces from his "legacy"...
