A Tale of Two Cabinets: Obama's Cronies vs. Trump's Captains Of Industry

From aloof academics to career government cronies, President Barack Obama filled his Cabinet with individuals whose greatest achievements were dreaming up unworkable Democratic utopias from the far off perches of academia and Washington bureaucracy.
By contrast, President-elect Donald Trump has appointed doers and captains of industry, for which he has received the ever so out-of-touch critique of the mainstream media.
“What we have are ignoramuses, billionaires and a few generals,” lamented Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post.
On the contrary, “what we have” is a Cabinet that looks a lot more like the novel appointees of President Ronald Reagan and less like the failed Obama appointees who gave us four dead Americans in Benghazi, the Fast and Furious gun running catastrophe and the death of a border patrol agent, hundreds of dead veterans in line at the VA, a failed $2 billion-dollar Obamacare website, $500 million taxpayer dollars lost at Solyndra, and $6 billion dollars wasted at the State Department.
Why the laundry list of undeniable disasters?
