  1. #1 Obama Urged to Seize Reins as Crises Pile Up 
    Obama Urged to Seize Reins as Crises Pile Up

    Published March 14, 2011

    | FoxNews.com

    President Obama gestures during a speech in Arlington, Va., March 14.

    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.

    "I don't know if they don't realize the disconnect and maybe they don't care ... but it does matter," Dana Perino, former White House press secretary under George W. Bush, told Fox News.

    Former Bush adviser Karl Rove said that he doesn't "begrudge" the president for taking time out for recreation, but Libya and the budget in particular demand more involvement on Obama's part.

    Critics note that every time Congress works on a stopgap budget, it risks a government shutdown and does virtually nothing to cut spending, all the while creeping closer to a tricky -- and potentially disastrous -- vote on raising the debt ceiling; every day the administration defers to its international partners to weigh the best course of action in Libya, Muammar al-Qaddafi gains ground.

    With the clock ticking, lawmakers and analysts are calling on the president to show a little more moxie on Capitol Hill and the world stage.

    "He seems paralyzed," said Nile Gardiner, a director with the conservative Heritage Foundation.

    Cartoon removed ... just checked into original site of artist, and found out permission is required before using it. Sorry CU. Don't want to get us in trouble. *Usually* when right clicking images, if not allowed it tells you so.

    Will be more careful in future. ~ ABC

    Cartoon is a little dated, but very much still fitting. :(

    On second thought, in *most* cases, perhaps we are better off when he does nothing, it costs us less, at least.

    whats sad is that this moron has to be TOLD to be a leader in this kind of situation. All he's doing is giving who ever his opponent is next year. Hell at this point a turnip could beat him and show more leadership qualities...


    It's almost like a real life Garrosh Hellscream taking over..... (Basic Campfire for Pres!!)

    Who wants him to "seize the reins"? I don't.
    If the Indians are chasing our stagecoach I want someone up front who can drive. If he wants to huddle under the seat and whimper, let him; the rest of us have a job to do.

    There is an old saying that you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. He isn't a leader; we can't force him to be one. What some people call cool is probably just paralysis, hoping he can somehow make it through the term without having to do anything or make decisions. He is the shining example of the Peter Princile, not what we need in these times.

    1st thought before I saw the cartoon:

    Obama Urged to Seize Reins as Crises Pile Up
    Hard to do with a golf club in his hands.
