From a Google News screen shot:
No short cuts or quick fixes wanted, but we need quick action.
Obama’s buddies in the media really ought to pay a little attention to the words they’re using.
I envision a wartime planning meeting: “Gentlemen, the enemy has penetrated our perimeter in three locations. We need quick action. There is not a minute to lose. The situation is deteriorating rapidly. But we want no shortcuts or quick fixes.”
Such decisive leadership.
I imagine it could be a lot worse, though, if he actually did exert leadership.
