Everyone has their own idea of what leadership is, but I’m pretty sure this isn’t it.
“It’s not about me. It’s not about what I want. What I’ve committed to, when I became speaker was to a more open and fair process. And as difficult as this issue is, me taking a hard position for or against some of these issues will make it harder for us to get a bill… If I come out and say I’m for this and I’m for that, all I’m doing is making my job harder.” -John Boehner on Immigration Reform
As speaker I will not take a position on this game-changing legislation because that will actually decrease the chances of it passing. But, you know, Obama should lead!
What’s the opposite of leadership?
