Leadership not seen in Republicans

Published: Friday, Jan. 17, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

One need only look at the contrast between President Barack Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to see the difference between a Democrat and a Republican today.

The president sees a problem and says, “I’ll fix it,” while Gov. Christie sees a problem and says, “It’s not my fault.”

When Republicans claim that government can’t do anything right, it’s only because they refuse to take an ounce of personal responsibility when they are in charge.
