Quote of the Day

Eloquence or style are no substitutes for leadership. An effective Commander in Chief leads. He doesn’t vote “present”. He doesn’t outsource his job. He doesn’t give it lip service. When those he’s leading are hurting, he’s there immediately. He acts like a leader, he empathizes like a leader and he makes decisions like a leader. And what he gains is one of the hardest things in the world to earn and keep – respect.

I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Southern men. They certainly have a way with words, don't they?

On an intellectual level, I can see where this situation puts Obama in a bit of a tough spot, as all involved were under his command. He does need to be careful in what he says.

That does not, in any way, excuse the callousness of his failure to extend comfort and leadership to the victims and to the families of victims. By failing to do that in a timely and conscientious way, he failed the entire military community and the nation.

It would not surprise me in the least to discover that he didn't really know a huge part of the job he campaigned for was Commander-in-Chief. In fact, I doubt he had a clue about any part of his job other than being "famous".

That one does. And he's a very sweet person, too.
