    If Obama is strong leader, he sets the agenda and forces them to follow, not the other way around.  Unfortunately, that is the problem...

    •  So he's only a strong leader for conservatism? (0+ / 0-)

      When has he ever told Pelosi and Reid to do something progressive and they followed his strong executive leadership and moved to the left?

      It seems that President Obama only leads by telling people to give up progressive principles and move to the right.

      I think Pelosi should take this opportunity, her last as Speaker of the House, to stand up to Obama and tell him he can work with the new Republican Congress to pass tax cuts for the wealthy if he wants to, but not with her Congress. She ought to show some leadership on this issue. She leads a co-equal branch of government, after all.
