In Second Term, Obama Is Seen as Using ‘Hidden Hand’ Approach
By PETER BAKER
WASHINGTON — In the nearly two weeks since Egypt’s military seized power, President Obama has promoted a better federal bureaucracy, given a medal to George Lucas of “Star Wars” fame and had former President George Bush to the White House for lunch. What he has not done is publicly address the violent upheaval in Cairo.
That is not to say Mr. Obama is uninvolved. In the privacy of the West Wing, away from the cameras, he has made calls to leading figures in the Arab world and has met with advisers trying to influence the crisis. But his low public profile on issues like immigration, Syria and health care underscores a calculated presidential approach that admirers consider nuanced and detractors call passive.
While other presidents have put the bully in the bully pulpit, Mr. Obama uses his megaphone, and the power that comes with it, sparingly, speaking out when he decides his voice can shape the trajectory of an issue and staying silent when he thinks it might be counterproductive. In his first year, the president seemed to be everywhere, talking about everything. In his fifth year, he is choosing his opportunities — even if it appears he is not always in command of events.
Some compare Mr. Obama’s approach to the “hidden hand” style of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who often steered events behind the scenes without being public about his role. Jim Newton, the author of “Eisenhower: The White House Years,” a book with back-cover blurbs from Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Secretary of State John Kerry, said Mr. Obama was like the former president in avoiding major international conflict, relying more on covert action and letting Congress take the lead in legislation.
“In those senses, Obama does appear to me to be taking a page from Eisenhower’s playbook,” Mr. Newton said.“What I don’t know, however, is how aggressively Obama is working out of view on these matters. The essence of Eisenhower’s hidden hand, of course, is that there was real work going on that people didn’t know at the time. If that’s true now, then Obama really is emulating Ike. If, on the other hand, he’s simply doing nothing or very little, that would be passivity, not hidden-hand leadership.”
Susan Eisenhower, a granddaughter of the late president, said it might be too soon to tell.“Eisenhower’s hidden-hand means of meeting his objectives was not really evident until his papers were opened, many decades after he left office,” Ms. Eisenhower said.

The poster clearly stated the jury found Zimmerman "not guilty". You twist that statement into "since Martin was black, he must be guilty". Who's the real racist?

Nah, it probably happened that way but I'm leaning towards the idea that Zimmerman may have had the gun out before he hit the ground. Otherwise, how did he draw it with Martin straddling him?

Try "not possible to say for sure". The evidence only points to the fact that George was wimp (that WAS his defense) who got into something he couldn't handle.
This is what throttles me: after all these years of watching you people foolishly try to disguise your very obvious racism, the fact that you reflexively fault the dead black kid brings it into glaring relief yet y'all still deny it.
Accept it!
Embrace your racism!
You'll feel better if you come out like Retard Fred.
Martin had the same right to defend himself; the bare facts of the case do not refute that.
Go play with your Law Degree, boy.

That punk-ass Zimmerman had reason to fear for his life every day he spent on earth. Allowing every cowardly right wing cowboy to shoot everyone they are afraid of is pure lunacy. Paranoids like DBWriter would wage war from his bunker with postmen, paperboys, census takers, UPS, pizza delivery boys and any other person that crosses his path.
Oh...go change your pants, miss hissy.

Now class, this nitwit would have you believe that he's (???) not a racist. Just like all the others, they don't recognize it because its so ingrained or inbred.

Its pathetic and has no place in any discussion.

That's why people make fun of you retard.

What was that I was saying earlier about racists cherry picking news stories and youtube videos to affirm their conviction that brown people are guilty by nature?

Of all the races here, whites commit most of the crime in this country.

Its pretty simple.

He was a paycheck to paycheck loser with a criminal record. Why do y'all ignore that? Oh yeah, he isn't black.

I agree with your final statement, mainly because anglos are 78% of the US population. However when we look at the rate of violent crimes per capita, its not even close (as negroes hit that one outta the park). You know it, I know it, and the Dept of justice knows it (although they try to avoid saying it any way they can).

Anything else?
