Soooooooooo tired of the "President Obama doesn't lead" meme!
What's worse is that the Repubs are able to push this talking point virtually unchallenged and in full on defiance of the facts. Nobody seems to care that President Obama can't pass legislation, that no matter what he submits to Congress the Republicans will oppose, or that President Obama has been open to compromises that include Social Security and Medicare that the Republicans have repeatedly rejected. What the hell are House and Senate Republicans doing? Waiting for President Obama to hold their hands to propose these spending cuts? Or, as I suspect, basically wanting President Obama to do their dirty work for them so that they can turn around and blame him (and Dems) for cutting Social Security and Medicare (like what they did in 2010)? They think it's the most important thing to cut Social Security and Medicare? Well, fine. THEY need to LEAD by proposing the legislation making all of these spending cuts and work to get it passed first before screaming about President Obama.
