Nearly 75 % Of Bush’s Staff Are Jobless

The unemployment lines are filling up with nearly 3,000 former members of the Bush administration out of work. It appears working for the former president is a sure ticket to unemployment benefits.
Nearly 75 percent of the Bush staff have yet to find a new job since their man left the Oval Office.

Raw Story reports:

“That ‘is much, much worse’ than when Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton left the White House,” Carlos M. Gutierrez, who served as Bush’s commerce secretary, told the paper.

With the Democrats in power in the Congress and the White House high-profile Republicans have little chance in gets a job with the standard think tanks.

Those employees that do find a spot are going the academic route. Henry Paulson is now a fellow at Johns Hopkins University’s Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies. Along with her huge book deal the one who appears to come out ahead is Condoleezza Rice. She has her old job back at Stanford as a political-science professor and senior fellow at its Hoover Institution.
