Obama AWOL While Crises Pile Up

Dereliction of Duty: Obama AWOL While Crises Pile Up

Obama Urged to Seize Reins as Crises Pile Up

A conflict approaching civil war in Libya. An end-times tsunami in Japan. A Congress that can't reach a budget.

And ... gender inequality?

The topic of President Obama's weekend radio address has raised some eyebrows, as Obama has met mounting crises with the same restraint and cool that characterized his slow-and-steady campaign for president. To some critics, the tone set by the White House in light of recent upheaval may hurt the president's public image.

Amid chaos around the world and on Capitol Hill, Obama's Saturday radio address was devoted to Women's History Month and a call to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, a proposal meant to address the income gap between men and women. Then, the president went golfing at Andrews Air Force Base. Read more at foxnews.com.

Obama Lies Low in Deficit Debate

When President Barack Obama opened the first meeting of his fiscal commission last April, he promised to be “standing with them” as they produced recommendations for curbing the nation’s escalating debt.

Republicans and Democrats say they are still waiting.

While Obama has said he’s committed to deficit reduction, he has also has made clear it is secondary, at least for now, to his “winning the future” agenda. And that reflects a strategy driven by what his senior aides believe voters care about most — jobs, not deficits. Read more at politico.com.

Obama Talks Much, Does Little as He Begins to Focus on 2012 Re-election

The White House is still a busy place, but priorities and attention are increasingly being sucked away to Chicago, home of President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign.

Congressional negotiations on budget disagreements are adrift, Libya’s anti-American dictator is brutally retaking control of the country, organized Islamists are using the democratic openings in Arab countries to push their way towards power, gas-price increases are draining dollars from the stalled American economy, and nervous American employers are trying to avoid hiring expensive U.S. workers.

I've said this all along, and I'll continue to say it, that this man doesn't know what to do and doesn't care about what the American people think.
He has spewed so much BS that it's starting to catch up to him. Finally people are starting to look around instead of listening to him. His actions are speaking louder than his words and even some of the Democrats are starting to realize this also.
My question would be [ what took so long to see this }??
He's a junior Senator and that is as far as his agenda can take him without a set of testicles to do the right things and stand up for ALL Americans...!
