I don't suspect for a minute that Orca's failure cost Romney the election, but just the same it shows that he can't lead, organize or delegate worth a damn.

Well, I doubt Romney directly made the hiring decisions for Orca, or monitored its progress. That's beneath a CEO, right? Besides, what the hell would he know about running a software project?

I'm reminded again of Bush's awful choices for so many federal appointments, not just of Brown for FEMA. As far as we can tell, those choices were based on partisan allegiance, not on their qualifications to actually, you know, do their jobs. I wonder if this thinking is so endemic throughout the GOP these days, that everyone Romney selected to work under him also hired that way?

If that's the case, then it's an indictment of hyper-partisanship, and the GOP's embrace of it, not just of Romney.
