If by leadership skill you are referring to leading from behind and after the fact, yes, Obama has great skills.
He got re-elected because he's such a great President. That's also why he's so much more popular than Congress. The resounding success of Obamacare attests to his strong leadership skills despite passive aggressive tea partiers trying to make it fail.

By the way, what does the slogan "leading from behind" mean? Isn't that an oxymoron?

I believe you mean "edify" rather than "enlighten" — and for your edification, the slogan "leading from behind" is an oxymoron, regardless of its source. I can see why it caught on as one of the tea partiers' barrage of putdowns for the President they insist on hating for "some" reason. After all, it's a catchy phrase, easy to remember and perfect for thinking at that level. But by definition to lead means to take responsibility of those who follow toward a goal.

Thanks for the Charles Krauthammer link. I usually just see him on Fox. I'm a vampire movie aficionado.

Hiding the fact that Benghazi was a planned terrorist attack and that millions would be losing their health insurance were just two of his beauties that helped him get reelected.

A great leader is an honest person that steps up to the podium to take charge, not one that takes three steps backwards and sits down.

LOL, if only President Obama had done the GOP’s job and helped them win the election and stop himself from winning… in a landslide.
You tea-baggers cannot accept the fact that ‘We the People’ rejected your hate, ignorance and flawed ideology; that the finding and killing of Osama bin Laden, the rescuing of the economy from total collapse and restoring our standing in the world trumped your sides hate speech, hoping for failure and deliberately trying to undermine Obama’s Presidency and the wellbeing of this nation.
But hey, if only Benghazi had been labeled a “terrorist attack”… if only Obama had come out and told everyone to vote for the other guy, LOL!

Losers with that loser talk, LOL!

Obviously you think lying to get elected is an acceptable thing. Well... then again, you are a liberal. Real Americans don't want to be lied to. They want an honest person that will tell people what they are honestly about, what they will honestly do, and honestly tell the expected results of their policies; not try to pull the wool over their eyes.

According to polls, it seems Americans now want our hate, ignorance and flawed ideology as you would put it. That's how much Americans hate liars. The coming election is expected to be a Democrat slaughter, and Commie Care is front and center.

You call yourself Marine Corp Pat? Okay solder, how do you feel about the White House leaving your fellow servicemen to be slaughtered like animals in Benghazi? How do you feel about the terrorists shooting down the helicopter of Seal Team six killing many of it's members because DumBama wanted to brag about killing Bin Laden? How do you feel about the media basically ignoring it because they wanted to support this joker in the White House?

You have this Illusion that because Romney lost, that Obama is doing good. Funny concept at best. Are he and Hillary still comparing notes and practicing for their stint before the special committee. Question one. Where were both of you during the 9 hours and why were both of you missing from the situation room?

Nobody has any objection to alternative energy, we have objections to the cost of alternative energy.

Liberals just don't understand that there is nothing on earth more reliable, more cost effective, more plentiful and powerful than oil and natural gas. Energy costs are high enough without making them even higher.

DumBama is having solar panels installed on the White House. What a generous guy with our money. Well I'll install solar panels on my house too if the taxpayers are going to pay for it. I bet after he leaves the White House and moves to his own place, you won't see one solar panel on his new home. He'll have to pay for it.
