Heard someone talking on RTE Radio one over weekend commenting on a typical day for the taoiseach. It involved many events such as sod turning, pub/hotel openings etc etc. The question is why is our leader in attendence at so many events where his time is wasted and he contributes little except getting the event into the local paper. He seems to attend any photo op when he should be using his limited and valuable time to solve the problems in this country such as the health crisis etc. How is it that bertie never gets bad publicity from things such as A&E crisis, massive overspends, corruption etc? He shows zero leadership on issues like the massive bloated beast that is the health service and the likes of Harney gets the rap. He seems to be everywhere but saying very little of substance and almost bluffing his way through his tenure. Instead of getting his mug in every paper in the country every week maybe he should use his time on tackling the problems that continue to exist ten years after he started his tenure.
