    I see as a weakness...

    Obama did not venture an opinion as to whether he thought the location they chose was "wise."

    When you enter the fray, to give credence to those who say it is unwise is not my vision of leadership.  But again, I like holding the people I voted for to a high standard.  But I guess for some, political concerns, take precedence over pricipled concerns.

    "Ultimately, we need to move beyond the tired debates of the left and the right, between business leaders and environmentalists" - President Obama, March 31

    •  I want a President who defends the (0+ / 0-)

      Constitution, not a President who feels compelled to weigh in on whether the exercise of a right is really
      "wise" or "provocative."

      If it's a legal right, that should settle the matter. Further arguments as to whether or not exercise of that right is wise or dangerous UNDERMINES the absolute authority of that right. I'm glad the President has chosen not to legitimate that kind of discourse.

      Authoritarian bullying should be left to the Wingnuts.
