if you ever needed proof that barack obama was a weak, spineless sack of shit, all you need to do is consider this:
Handling of jobs speech timing blurs White House message - CNN.com: "Washington (CNN) -- A day after the usually non-controversial act of scheduling a presidential speech to Congress became a high-profile political dispute, President Barack Obama and the White House struggled Thursday to refocus the nation on the jobs package he will present rather than a backroom showdown labeled as childish and nonsense.of course, he's forever stuck in his can't everybody just get along?, conciliatory mush that all johnny boner has to do is say boo! and o'bambi and his troops buckle and seize up in abject surrender.
On Wednesday night, the White House agreed to move Obama's special address to a joint session of Congress back one day -- from September 7 to September 8 -- after Republican complaints and follow-up consultations with House Speaker John Boehner."
this is supposed to be the most powerful guy on earth, the leader of the free world, but instead he's a doormat for the political opposition -- and when they buck him, he never thinks to make them pay a price. consequently, they constantly upend any administration initiative, making it clear that this is the most inept bunch ever to inhabit the white house.
it's enough to make a person puke. when people voted for change, they voted for a change in direction, not a change from decisive action to quivering ineffectiveness.
