Obama's curious exercise of presidential "leadership"

Boehner Repeals Murphy's Law


... by rejecting everyone else's plan while offering no plan of his own, the president effectively took himself out of the game. This curious exercise of presidential "leadership" transformed Mr. Obama into the Newt Gingrich of this debate, while Mr. Boehner looked serious and reasonable.

That seems to be the liberal reading as well. The New York Times appears to be reeling. Maureen Dowd quotes a Democrat as saying we're watching President Obama "turn into Jimmy Carter right before our eyes."

Comment: He seems content to enjoy the trappings of the presidency: the world tours, the entourage, the fawning, et cetera. First lady Michelle the same.
