He has been "leaving the details for another day" for four years already. When is he going stop the campaign hype and actually provide leadership to get things done?
With Obama it is never about leadership. It is always about a fight. If you disagree with him be prepared to fight rather than have a rational discussion. It is his way or the highway. Pathetic.
bluemax === "It is his way or the highway. Pathetic." What is pathetic is the endless GOP filibusters when they don't get their way. They even filibuster their own bills. Now THAT'S pathetic!
bluemax: "With Obama it is never about leadership." The problem with the right is they can't recognize leadership. They haven't had a leader in their party for decades.
Benjamin Franklin: "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
Even Pres. Obama cannot guarantee safety for everyone - or anyone. And even Pres. Obama will have to compromise with the Republicans. Compromise goes both ways. I hope he stops acting like he has all the answers and all the power. If he does not then nothing will get done for the next 4 years.
Gridlock is our friend here folks. The less that this mistake of a President can get done, the better off the American people will be.
rather than Obama's view of a community taking care of itself,"------------The problem is that Obama's idea of the community taking care of itself means Gov't taking care of them! Community taking care of itself would be neighbors watching out for neighbors, not gov't paying for everything.
Current social welfare recipients will deduct 21 Trillion more than they contributed into the various programs. That seems like an appropriate definition for taking.
Obama's ideals regarding compromise are set on his plans. If you don't like them, then you are being partisan.
