Via the Washington Post:
"President Obama will hit the road this week and forcibly deliver his message that a combination of spending cuts and tax hikes on the rich is necessary to rein in the nation's rocketing debt — a high-stakes effort to rally public support ahead of a series of contentious budget battles in Congress."
Our Commander-in-Chief should be a visionary-in-chief. Just last Monday, I bemoaned that "never has the bully pulpit of the Presidency been so more profoundly wasted than on Barack Obama." There is no question that this is a competent Administration and the President himself thoughtful, intensely analytical and intelligent. But when it comes to articulating where he want to take the country, the President has all too often been missing in action.
It is a welcome news that the President is taking his message out across the country.
