A Deficit Never Discussed: The Leadership Deficit

There are budget deficits and trade deficits, but one deficit that may be the greatest of all is being sorely overlooked, our leadership deficit. America gets that it's there. Nine out of 10 Americans disapprove of the job Congress is doing. And with comments like these, how could you argue that we have leadership right now?

"We have to pass the (health care) bill so you can find out what's in it." -Nancy Pelosi

"Furthermore, we believe that health care reform, again I said at the beginning of my remarks, that we sent the three pillars that the President's economic stabilization and job creation initiatives were education and innovation - innovation begins in the classroom - clean energy and climate, addressing the climate issues in an innovative way to keep us number one and competitive in the world with the new technology, and the third, first among equals I may say, is health care, health insurance reform."

-Nancy Pelosi

"The regulation of medicine has been a State function."

-Barney Frank

"I want to begin by saying that I am glad to consider the legislation, but I do not think we are facing any kind of a crisis. That is, in my view, the two government sponsored enterprises we are talking about here, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are not in a crisis."

-Barney Frank in 2003

Because if it evaporates to a certain point – they have lanes now where ships can go that couldn’t ever sail through before. And if it gets to a point where it evaporates too much, there’s a lot of tundra that’s being held down by that ice cap..”

-Henry Waxman

"I, quite frankly, don't care about the Constitution in this situation."

-Phil Hare when asked how Obamacaid is Constitutional

With comments like these and hundreds more, who could blame people for being upset?
