"People who know all the answers are the worst offenders of all."

At the highest political level of our complex world "they"€ means people like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
These were the final "fixers"€ of the system when something went wrong. Of late they seemed to be capable of very little. Why? Because their power to fix depended on the systems they were supposed to control. Their "smarts"€ were judged by their ability to manipulate  the system through which they rose.  Once the system itself began fraying at the edges their true quality became evident. They were not very smart and not very adaptable.-- Belmont Club » What Could Go Wrong?
