    After 2 years of occupying the Whitehouse, Obama's inexperience,arrogance and his inability to make decisions  exposes the once believed to be brillant campaigner that he was in 2008.President Obama hasn't accomplished many of the promises he made before being elected.

    The ideal answer would be, nothing. But, he seems to be too passive and has assembled a team of like minded individuals, (instead of opposite minded), and therefore has made it difficult to see outside of the box.

    I really don't know that he has one.  He certainly has Hilary Clinton trotting the globe and glad-handing folks...maybe even handing out money that we don't have.  Up until Obama took office, it was very clear that we stood staunchly behind Israel in the Middle East. That position is not clear at all now and I shudder to think what our response what be if there was an attack on Israel. I can already hear Obama on television explaining that the situation is not our business.  In the situation with Libya, he has blatantly ignored the rules in not consulting Congress on launching attacks on Libya.  Yes, it is a UN action but still, the rules are clear that US Forces will not be deployed in war actions without the approval of Congress. He had ample time to do that and it would have been a strong signal to Ghadfi to see the action take place...maybe it would circumvented the no fly situation currently in place. The President is detached and caught up in making sure that George Soros investments in Brazilian oil drilling are properly in place.  I see no real engagement on his part in any particular action unless it is forced upon him by what he sees as being the correct action to keep his image in tact and keep his re-election campaign a viable one.  Leadership is first and foremost about engagement and dealing with the details. Obama doesn't get it. WB
