Angry Obama

President Obama is being criticized for not showing enough emotion over the Big Spill. Some of this criticism comes from the left wing of the Democratic party, which seems to always overweight emotion and underweight reason. But some of this is coming from ordinary middle of the road folks.

I’m no fan of Obama – I believe he operates from a worldview which is fundamentally wrong. But, given that, I admire the reasoned and methodical way he works his agenda. (Yes, you can admire someone’s skill even if you think it is being misapplied). It seems to me that we want leaders who can keep their heads when others are losing their’s. We don’t want an emotional hothead. In my lifetime, we’ve been fortunate to have Presidents who are cool, calm, and collected. It’s a good practice that we should continue.
