Too bad Don has no idea what goes on inside a McD restaurant.

Thompson should have been "retired" at least a year ago. Not only is he operationally dense, but his verbal gaffes on Unions, minimum wage,and Obamacare have severely hurt the system. He has also brought in numerous folks with absolutely no McD experience to fill top posts.Add to that his financial support of the current Government administration, which is the MOST ANTI-BUSINESS administration in our lifetimes, and he is clearly unfit for the job. Is McDs vaunted "deep bench" bereft of a suitable replacement?

In a recent McD webcast, it was revealed that Thompson & Co has hired "Purple" , a POLITICAL public relations firm , to address the recent negative public perceptions of McDonalds and our food. "Purple" is a LIBERAL POLITICAL P.R. Firm that has worked for the elections of Barack Obama twice, Bill Clinton twice, and Democratic Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel. Has Don Thompson changed McD from a supposedly neutral, non partisan company to a blatantly partisan LIBERAL leaning firm ??? (Remember, Thompson is a STRONG supporter of Obama). This seems to be a BIG mistake !

Given the loss of people like Fenton and Stratton it appears that having an operations background is a liability at McD.
