Response to "Mr. President, let's get to work making tough choices"

Boehner and Cantor's open letter to President Obama. . .

Some extreme pundits may be asking:
"At what point will legislators stop cajoling the chief executive in print and start charging the American people to send in new leadership?"

Instead, the American people ought to ask, "When will the President act like a leader who wanted to usher in post-partisan change and work with the legislators whom we sent in?"

Unfortunately, President Obama has made it very clear: he is not interested in the interests of the American People. He wishes to pursue an elite, statist agenda that will enlarge the federal government at the expense of the states and the people. Of course, this unconstitutional course of action will only slow down the economy further.

This letter can be the defining moment for House Speaker Boehner and his coterie.

As long as the Republican majority in the House presses their attempts to stir up agreement and compromise, President Obama remains an aloof stalwart stymieing any attempts at change for the better.

If all continues as unleashed during the bitter partisan hold-up over the debt ceiling, then perhaps Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will achieve his goal of turning Barak Obama into a "one-term president".
