I don’t know if USDA Agriculture Secretary Tom Vislack was the real culprit or someone higher up but this foul-up is inexcusable. Any manager worth his pay knows better than to jump to conclusions without the facts…especially regarding personnel decisions! The fact that Obama “‘instructed his staff to learn from this circumstance” does not speak highly of the quality of his staff. Someone should be fired or demoted for this and it’s not Shirley Sherrod.
Vislack they say jumped the gun
But the damage to Sherrod is done.
It’s time to decide
If his tenure as leader’s undone.
