Hey Barack, Fix the Problem Not the Blame!!

    Although there are many things that disappoint me about the performance of our current President, there is nothing as irritating as his apparent disinterest in actually fixing problems.  More and more he has shown that he is just another run of the mill politician who is more eager to pontificate on politically motivated dogma than he is in actually creating coalitions of knowledgeable people who can come up with plausible solutions.

    The Gulf oil spill is a classic example.  In Obama's book, The Audacity of Hope, he states on page 10 that "I wish the country had fewer lawyers and more engineers".  I was reading this lying in bed one night and when I read that sentence I damn near stood up to applaud.  OK so here comes a test and instead of sending engineers and scientists who might be able to come up with solutions he sends a team of lawyers.  Given the serious nature of the event, the uncertainty surrounding its cause, and the potentially devastating consequences, why can't we have a leader who just once could do his best Bill Parcells or Tom Landry impersonation and rally up the troups to accomplish a task?
