This week, Herman Cain failed his foreign policy pop quiz on Libya ("I got all this stuff twirling around in my head" is the campaign trail equivalent of "the dog ate my homework"). Congress failed basic nutrition when it voted to dismiss new guidelines that would have upped the amount of fresh veggies and fruit in school lunches and instead declared that frozen pizza qualified as a vegetable (which, I'm sure, had nothing to do with the $5.6 million the food industry has spent lobbying against the healthier regulations). And New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg didn't pass the sniff test when he claimed that he ordered the surprise NYPD raid on Occupy Wall Street's Zuccotti Park encampment because it had become a "fire safety hazard." The Occupy movement is in large part a response to the diminished credibility of governments everywhere. And the way governments are dealing with the movement only further diminishes their credibility. An epic fail.
