Both sides are guilty. The unfortunate thing is we have a president that is facing a long term crisis and he doesn't lead.
i don't necessarily disagree but i wonder when i hear that o'bama doesn't lead what is it that he is supposed to do to be a leader?
can he individually buttonhole the tea partiers and hard-right conservative reps in the house and persuade them to compromise?
when their own leaders cannot?
what actions would constitute "leadership" with regard to the fiscal cliff negotiations? what should he do?
