Voting ‘Present’ Wasn’t So Tough

I suspect President Obama may sometimes look back to the good old days with fondness when he could vote Present on an issue and nobody cared. Of course those that supported him are getting exactly what they voted for in 2008. What I don’t understand is why his approval rating has steadily fallen and is so low because he is simply doing what he has always done.
The leadership exhibited by this White House is abysmal–if not comical. Leadership has nothing to do with philosophy or beliefs but the manner in which these principles are applied and carried out. Here are three statements from the White House/President within the past few weeks:

August 3rd

August 13th

August 14th

Maybe another beer (milk) summit is in the making.
