ANALYSIS/OPINION:

President Obama’s modus operandi seems to be to blame everyone and everything but himself for his disastrous failures, and to always lead from behind on both foreign and domestic policies.

We saw this week the result of this leading from behind on foreign policy. We have also recently seen the result of leading from behind domestically. GOP White House contender Mitt Romney went to New Orleans after Hurricane Isaac, and Mr. Obama followed. Mr. Romney came out in defense of America regarding the Middle East fiasco, and Mr. Obama followed (after fundraising and campaigning, of course). Mr. Romney has been criticizing China for unfair trade for as long as I can remember, and finally, this week, Mr. Obama followed.

Does anyone else see a pattern? Mr. Romney is a true leader — and Mr. Obama is not.
