    Pagan is right. If you whip up an audience of neo-NAZIs, then Santorum's message becomes the administration's failure to keep close to our ally in the Mideast, Saudi Arabia. Anyway, what would Santoum do - pledge to always take orders from Natanyahu?

    Timid YES. However, the President has done many things in his 3 years but not logically or with common sense for the country that depends on an executive that is supposed to have advisors that know what they are doing. We don't have to have snippets of what he has done or articles about what he has done. The President has a broad range of activities and responsibilities and that is to lead the country. In the first two years he had the Congress to do his bidding for him as they were both houses and he didn't have a solid success with the majority. For a year, he has had only the Senate and Senator Reid has been almost quiet this past year without the Speaker of the House at his side. The President needs to lead and not just speak as if he is the king and grants you the wish you want. He needs to work with the Congress and not mandate them. If he was the president or chairman of the board, he may have the power to say what the company will do but he would be dumb to do that all the time.
