You know, I may not always be a good leader, but at least I am generally smart enough to figure an issue out over several decades enough to get it right. And then I’ll take a stand.
This is one clueless person. Why is he in a leadership position in the first place. This is when he should be leading the way. Instead we have the Obama model playing out, leading from behind.
This guy IS one big fat behind IMO.
“Why is he in a leadership position in the first place?”
Because he is an enabler? We can’t have anyone with principles in those kind of positions ya know : |
Dear Lord, hear our prayers.
"My job in this -- in this process is to facilitate a discussion and to facilitate a process so the American people can see what we're doing...."
Yeah, thet's why they meet behind closed doors.
For sake of comparison, I looked up the leadership style of Sam Rayburn (from Brittanica.com):
Although the office of speaker at that time lacked great formal powers, Rayburn used the limited influence of the office to maximum advantage. He also relied heavily on his personal prestige, his skill at persuasion, and personal friendships built up over decades in the House to bridge the regional differences within the Democratic Party and to forge a working majority in the House.
He referred to himself as "Mr. Democrat".
So how did Boehner win the job in the first place?
