Politico had an interesting pre-election summary of top Democrats’ reactions to the anticipated 2010 election losses. Toward the end of the article, what the authors describe as “Democratic source close to the White House” analyzing Pres. Obama’s likely reaction, makes a very telling point:
He’s shown a willingness [after past crises] to take responsibility and throw somebody under the bus.”
Take responsibility and throw somebody under the bus! If this is what leadership has come to in America, it’s no wonder we’re in such a mess.
