Who is leading this country? The Washington Post, or (the President in) Washington DC? From Townhall, following the events (and lack of reaction from Obama) regarding Gadhafi…
The Washington Post in a blistering editorial, sternly lectured Obama for his timidity and wait-and-see passiveness at a time when the only moral position was to be immediately on the side of the Libyan democracy movement, which has swept across North Africa and the Middle East.
Naturally Obama’s response was non-committal, weak, and wimpy. He surely is still focused on apologies to the world, and just fears offending any of America’s enemies. But he can not handle anything on our soil either, like that bonfire called the budget. He simply side steps any form of debate, or discussion or responsibility. He just does not want to listen or do HIS job!!
What is fascinating is that his followers somehow thought a “passive person” would be able to make “changes”.. well any that are beneficial, effective, and won’t ruin this country. (We are still trying to battle Obamacare, and we will forever be paying the DEBT he inflated!
“For a man who won office talking about change we can believe in, Barack Obama can be a strangely passive president,” writes Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus, who also says she “generally shares the president’s ideological perspective.”
“There are a startling number of occasions in which the president has been missing in action — unwilling, reluctant or late to weigh in on the issue of the moment. He is, too often, more reactive than inspirational, more cautious than forceful,” she said.
Obama simply misses the point.. constantly.
In a parting shot, after the hard work of compromise had already been done by GOP leaders, Obama said in a statement: “We cannot keep doing business this way. Living with the threat of a shutdown every few weeks is not responsible …”
Not responsible? What is not responsible is running up a budget deficit of $1.6 trillion in this fiscal year, with annual trillion-dollar-plus deficits forecast for the remainder of this decade.
Responsibility? Does Obama even know that word? He knows how to blame, but definitely does not how to take any responsibility. Hopefully he won’t have a chance to continuing to blame the past, hopefully this will be his ONE & ONLY term, that we have to suffer with. I am still stunned it has ONLY been 2 years, feels like a century!
