Excuse the feck me?
There is only one president at a time – that is how its been for how long?
Analysts: Bush, Obama not taking lead in righting economy
That is their lead – erm…Bush is president so he should be steering the ship – Obama takes over on the 20th of Jan. Other than that all you can do is allow Obama to pick his team ready for the day to take over. Most Americans understand that, no?
President Bush has been noticeably absent from the machinations aimed at righting the nation’s financial course. Analysts and key players differ over whether President-elect Barack Obama should get his economic team in place and take charge, or sit back and await his turn at the helm.
“Somebody has to speak up soon,” said CNN senior political analyst David Gergen, explaining that he understands why Americans are growing anxious and yearning for direction and leadership.
“I think … sort of the bottom feels like it is falling out for many people,” said Gergen, who has advised four presidents. “They sense there’s a total lack of leadership in Washington, that the White House is silent, the treasury secretary has been battered, the Federal Reserve can’t speak up. These automakers come up to Capitol Hill and fail. And the president-elect is silent in Chicago.”
Bush should be doing something – but that is asking way too much, all he has done in the past is – well, very little – why are pundits putting the blame and pressure on Obama? He is, as is said time and time again, the president-elect!
Bloody simple to me – these pundits should be asking why Bush isn’t doing anything.
If Obama steps in he will be seen as stepping on the toes of this president – and that isn’t what should be happening.
Barack Obama has to have the right team in place to do the job – and to get that; he needs time to get them together.
Simple really – Bush is still a moron – but that isn’t Barack Obama’s fault. The American voters had a chance to get rid of him four years ago.
So really – who is to blame?
