When something goes right in the government Obama is well aware of it, ready to hold a press conference, and often even taking credit for it.
But if something’s going wrong, he knows nothing about it. He’s the captain of our ship. If he doesn’t know, he better find out pretty quick. Real leaders trust their people and can get answers quickly. Why can’t he? Maybe he can, and he just won’t do it.
Obamacare, Benghazi, IRS scandal, NSA. How can he know nothing about these issues that are so important to the American people? And why are we still waiting for information months later?
The American people deserve answers and this Administration’s refusal and/or delays to come before Congress just are a symptom of the real problem. If President Obama wanted to be transparent, he could compel the appointees to testify or easily remove them if they refused. But he doesn’t. So either he’s covering for them, or they’re doing what he told them to do. Either way, it’s not good.
What do you think?
