Quit crying about the lack of leadership, Republicans; you’re not providing any, either, with that. Step up and lead. Where are your proposals? Talk about what you’ve passed that the Democrats are ignoring. Pass a bill that substitutes targeted cuts for the sequester, and put the onus on the Democrats.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R):
The president needs to step up to the plate. There is never enough taxes for this administration.
Senator Tom Coburn (R, OK):
…told Fox News that the cuts will happen but put the blame on President Obama, saying he has provided “no leadership” on averting the cuts, known as sequester.
And he added,
The reason there is no agreement is because there’s no leadership from the president on actually recognizing what the problem is.
Senator John McCain (R, AZ) had this:
I won’t put all the blame all on the president of the United States. But the president leads. The president should be calling us over somewhere—Camp David, the White House, somewhere—and us sitting down and trying to avert these cuts.
Do. Stop bleating.
