Pretty much exactly what I said after the president said what he said by DrewM over at Ace of Spades HQ.
Here’s Obama on how he demonstrates leadership (which is apparently lacking in Congress).
And I’ve got to say, I’m very amused when I start hearing comments about, well, the President needs to show more leadership on this. Let me tell you something. Right after we finished dealing with the government shutdown, averting a government shutdown, I called the leaders here together. I said we’ve got to get done — get this done. I put Vice President Biden in charge of a process — that, by the way, has made real progress — but these guys have met, worked through all of these issues.
Real leadership is…putting Joe Biden in charge.
Because the only thing Joe Biden is better at than organizing the congressional kegger is fixing a really obvious problem with a really obvious answer. If it ain’t workin’, kick it down the line, blame somebody else. Leadership!
