Re: Obama Issues Executive Order on ‘Diversity’

As Roger notes below, the president yesterday issued an executive order promoting “diversity” in the federal workforce. Minorities presently comprise 39 percent of the federal workforce.

It will not be lost on many Americans that the president found time before going on vacation to issue an order regarding racial bean-counting, but deferred issuing a plan to increase the overall number of jobs until sometime in September. The question is whether this is more a reflection of the administration’s priorities or of its competencies.
