That is the position taken by our current President on both the 2014 budget, or rather, the continuing resolution, and, raising the debt ceiling.
I will date myself by saying that I never heard those words from President Johnson, President Carter, President Reagan, President Clinton, or President Bush. Yes, I’ve skipped a few presidents, but none of them uttered those words either, particularly when it came to the future of our country.
We expect our president to lead, get involved, and, contribute to solving problems.
We particularly expect that when Congress seems incapable of resolution. We saw President Reagan and President Clinton intervene under similar circumstances.
Does anyone see that happening today?
