Do you consider Obama a leader? Do you feel this nation is in a crisis? When do you feel the crisis started?

Obama Scolds Congress for planned district work days....

Calling it vacationing During a Crisis....

But then.... 

Obamas plan Vacation on Martha’s Vineyard

or even this

Obama plans Fundraising/Campaigning Trips

Then there is the whole "playing golf" bit...  In 2010 he surpassed Bush.... At last count, he was past 40....

So, when did the "crisis" start, anyway?

Hasn't there has been an unemployment crisis, budget crisis, debt ceiling crisis.....  

Yet, Obama says he is "amused" when people say he needs to get more involved in the debt crisis talks

"Now's the time to go ahead and make the tough choices, that's why they're called leaders"~ Obama

 

At what point do you, a voting taxpayer, measure Obama's "vacationing" during a crisis?

  • No, Obama is not a leader, yes we're in crisis and I believe the crisis started with Bush during his 2nd term and Obama is making is worse.

  • I would go so far as to say the Crisis started with Carter (in some areas)~ carried on with Bush SR, Jr, Clinton, and Obama's spending spree of a stimulus did the opposite of helping this nation....

    I will measure at the polls, most definitely... But also in holding him accountable to everything he says and every policy he signs.

  • So, discussing the definition of a "crisis" as referenced by the President in comparison to his actions is a "sky is falling" moment to you, minnesotaNOTSOnice? Interesting... Small minded and an example hinting to a blinder wearing free pass giving loon, but nonetheless~ interesting...

  • Obama a leader? No..he would make a good used car saleman to the gullible.

    GWB was railed on for his vacation time yet Obama is given a free pass,,just like everything else.

    Yes we are in a crisis and our economy is in the toilet.NOW..we are in much futher debt and our children will bear the brunt.
