Re: Federale's blog post Obamacare Foulup: Minority Occupation Government (Asian Branch) Not So Competent After All?
From: A Modest Donor [Email him]
Federale's interpretation of the Obamacare Website fiasco needs to be trumpeted to the skies. He wrote
But just who has been behind the crash-and-burn of Obamacare? None but Henry Chao, Deputy Chief Information Officer and Deputy Director of the Office of Information Services at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Todd Park, Chief Technology Officer of the United States, and Aneesh Chopra, former CTO.
It reads like a who's-who of Asian "America."
In my career, I've had to work with Asians-—especially Koreans—many times. To put it simply, the performance that I see from them doesn't match the reputation for achievement that they enjoy.
They seem to best operate in a situation where they can maintain the appearance of value and know-how, but when given a task with responsibilities on their own they fail spectacularly.
My experiences are anecdotal but I suspect that there are many more people out there who have similar understanding.
