There are certainly different styles of leadership. But President Obama is suffering the results of poor choices (passing a huge new entitlement on a party-line vote) and of what can only be described as a lack of courage.

Brit Hume says it as well as anyone: “When the issues are difficult and the options unappetizing he tends simply to go away.”
Obama practically disappeared from the scene (no calls to Cabinet officials, no convening in the Situation Room) on the night of the Benghazi, Libya, attack. He seems more concerned on the NSA flap with distancing himself from conservatives whom he loathes (“I am not Dick Cheney”) and in Syria on protecting his self-image (he ends wars, doesn’t start them) than in taking the heat from Democrats. When coverage is not glowing, he becomes cranky with the media (as does his spokesman). He is most at ease campaigning before a crowd (whether it is an election or not) when he can accuse opponents of ill-will and flail away at straw men with no interruption.

We can only look to Obama's past history to realize that casting a present vote as a State and Federal Senator shows Obama to be an Empty suit and as president he has not shown any backbone.

Wait so now that he's disappeared you want him back? Nothing will make you happy will it? You'd think you'd want the President to stay away from most problems and not attempt to solve them.
