Nice guy?

Democrat voter on Barack Obama: “Sometimes he needs to put his foot down and not be the nice guy.”

Barack Obama to House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, after the 2008 election, as Obama was making plans to rev up the debt car: “Elections have consequences and, Eric, I won.”

I wonder if that was “not nice” enough for said Dem voter and those like her. Strong leader? Well, okay then. I was always under the impression that, by definition, strong leaders don’t lead off cliffs.

    Interesting that you had to go back to within a few days of his inauguration to find some strong words. I think the guy who was asking for a “foot down” was hoping for one to come during the debt ceiling debate this summer. Is your cliff the debt ceiling or the TARP spending from the time of the quote or something else altogether?
