Obama, Binders, and a failure of Leadership

This is leadership?

I won’t go into the whole “Binder” silliness which the Left is pushing, since it is just that: silliness. Ed over at HotAir put it into context, giving credit to Mark Halperin for “being one of the very few journalists that spoke out about Barack Obama’s lack of a second-term agenda or much substance at all after the debate on Tuesday night.”

We have exploding debt, ambassadors being murdered, no actual budgets having been passed in years, ‘Taxmageddon’ on the horizon, record unemployment for his entire 1st term, …and all Obama can do is make juvenile “Binder” jokes?

If it wasn’t so tragic, it’d be comical.

News flash to the President: what we really need to be concerned with is THIS (from Breitbart.com):

Weekly applications for U.S. unemployment benefits jumped 46,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 388,000, the highest in four months.

What else is there?

Agreed, Benghazi is horrific and we need something other than dissembling and semantics from President “Al Qaeda is on the run” Obama. We have a multitude of items to fix, both foreign and domestic, but if our folks don’t have jobs, …real jobs, …we simply can’t fix anything else.

So, Mr. President, are you going to continue to keep throwing mindless distraction upon distraction in front of the American people, or are you going to finally, once and for all, hold yourself to the standard you set four years ago?

“You know, a year from now, I think people are going to see that we’re starting to make some progress but there is still going to be some pain out there. If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”

Yeah, …I think we all know the answer to that question.

Since President Binder wants this to be the conversation of the day, okay, …I’ll play along:
