Of course Obama has to have someone hold his hand. He is not man enough even to come to the table with a plan himself. He has shown no leadership not the ability to lead........unless its from behind.

Speaking of leadership, what's Boehner's counter-offer? Just what I thought. Nothing.

House GOP makes a $2.2 trillion debt counteroffer to Obama on cliff

By Russell Berman - 12/03/12 08:17 PM ET

House Republican leaders on Monday made a counteroffer to President Obama in the “fiscal cliff” negotiations that would cut $2.2 trillion from the deficit with a combination of spending cuts, entitlement reforms and $800 billion in new tax revenue.

Republican officials said their 10-year plan contained more deficit reduction than the offer the White House presented last week while standing firm against Obama’s demand to increase tax rates on the wealthy.

The White House quickly panned the offer, saying it contained “nothing new” and did not “meet the test of balance.”

Well pookie, if you could read other than funny papers, you would know the Right proposed a plan from Bill Clintons economic advisor is said to be nothing by Obama. He wants the cliff.
