After almost two months Obama will meet with BP CEO. Obama's actions
mirror what the pundits are telling him to do.
That is followership.

The missteps of Obama are growing at an amazing rate. I am just waiting
for the Obama doll or "action" figure to come onto the market where it
will include tele-prompter.

I meant that it isn't what presidents say - it's what they do.
"In no part of the constitution is more wisdom to be found,
than in the clause which confides the question of war or peace
to the legislature, and not to the executive department."

Have you heard Obama try and give a speech extemoraneously? It is
difficult to follwo with all of the I..I..I's, ah..ah..ah's,
um..um..um's. Obama is a stuttering idiot without a tele-prompter.
