After almost a full term in the Oval Office, President Barack Obama still has no idea how to be an effective American president. A little over 2 months before he could even get the job, Republican nominee Mitt Romney proved that he knows how it's done.
Last night Mr. Romney accepted his party's nomination with the words "President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family." Today he is providing a real world example of the difference between himself and the self-absorbed, ineffective incumbent by travelling to Lafitte, Louisiana in the wake of Hurricane Isaac. Mr. Romney will be touring an emergency command center with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal seeing that families will get the help they need. Meanwhile President Obama is in Texas for what the White House says is official business but even the mainstream media is calling "an election-year reminder" that the Iraq War ended under his watch.
Over the holiday weekend our Candidate-in-Chief will be jetting around the country. On Saturday he'll be campaigning in Iowa, on Sunday in Colorado and on Monday in Ohio. Only after Governor Romney announced his Friday trip to storm-damaged Louisiana did the president's spokesman hastily announce that Mr. Obama will do the same...after his campaign stop on Monday.
In the past four years we have learned the painful lesson that President Obama is not a leader. Just hours after he officially became the GOP nominee we learned that Mitt Romney is such a strong leader that the current president of the United States will follow him.
