This is leadership in the age of Obama
(Daily Caller) President Barack Obama will wait until the sequester hits to have his first sequester-related face-to-face meeting with congressional leaders on Friday, according to a report by ABC News’s Jonathan Karl:
“A congressional source with direct knowledge of the plans tells me the top four congressional leaders – John Boehner, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell – will meet with President Obama at the White House Friday to attempt to negotiate a way to avoid the spending cuts that both sides have said should be avoided,” Karl reported Wednesday.
Karl reported that the White House arranged the meeting late Tuesday.
Obama has been running around the country demagogueing the Sequestration, which was his idea in the first place, for weeks. He’s had his people sending doom and gloom emails, making dire predictions on TV of apocalypse (some have lied), and releasing criminal illegal aliens. Yet, the Chief Executive has barely had any contact with Congressional leaders, and won’t hold actual face to face meetings with them till the Sequestration actually takes effect? But he still had time to take a vacation including $1,000 hour golf lessons? Sadly, this is the type of leadership that a bare majority of Americans voted for. Hysterical doom and gloom from the neverending campaign trail while failing to have discussions.
Oh, and if things were so darned apocalyptic, why would Team Obama be considering sending more aid to the Syrian rebels, which could easily run into the tens of millions, if not more?
