Impossible Standard

Guy White has resorted to whining about how the evil anti-Semites are demanding he meet an “impossible” standard in his Jewish power series. In fact, I only suggested that he research the federal bureaucracy and attempt to determine its Jewish composition. The staffers and policy wonks do most of the “grunt work” of formulating policy for government agencies. I just thought it would be a worthwhile vein of inquiry to pursue.

At the very least, I am quite sure that outdated information on the Jewish composition of the civil service is floating around. I have seen it before. If I am not mistaken, I found a number in a reputable source and quoted it in one of the previous threads here. From anecdotal experience, I know that Jews are significantly overrepresented in this area, but to what extent I don’t remember.

Note to Guy: it is “aides,” not “aids.”

Update: Some impossible standard. According to Benjamin Ginsberg in The Fatal Embrace, Jews were more than 15% of top ranking civil servants when his book was published in 1993.

In the Obama administration, Lawrence Summers is the Director of the National Economic Council; Jared Bernstein is Chief Economist and Economic Policy Advisor to the Vice President.

    “Renowned as a fierce partisan, he has been an ardent ambassador to Republicans, including Obama’s defeated rival, Senator John McCain of Arizona. He has exerted influence on countless decisions; in meetings, administration officials say, Obama often allows him to speak first and last.

    “You can see how he listens and reacts to Rahm,” said Ron Klain, chief of staff to Vice President Joseph Biden Jr. “You can see that his opinion is being shaped.”
