It's pretty hard to disagree with any of this. Preisdent Obama contracts his "signature issue" out to Congress and then complains about the results? During the campaign we said Obama's favored strategy is staying on the sideline keeping his jersey clean. That might work in campaigns, but it's not an effective way to govern.
It's notable he did the same thing again Wednesday night, saying for the umpteenth time he was going to get rid of "don't ask, don't tell" for gays in the military and then urged Congress to do it, rather than doing it himself by executive order. He also claimed to support development of new nuclear facilities, but he'll never really get behind this effort. Landrieu's criticism of Obama is spot on. Heck, he's not even holding a clip board on the sidelines, he's an armchair QB. He also reminds me of that one person at a church or school committee who starts almost every sentence with "somebody ought to." But that somebody is never him.
