In business, the leader of a company is held responsible for the good and the bad that company does. That leader also is held responsible for the good and the bad that employees of the company do.
If this is true in real life, why shouldn't it be true in government?
We currently, as a democratic republic, are being tested by three major scandals, and the leader of our country is not taking personal responsibility for a single one of them.
We don't understand how President Obama can stand in front of the American people and tell us that he did not know who was responsible for Benghazi, whose administration sicced the IRS on conservative groups, or who prompted the Justice Department to conduct secret investigations of news media outlets.
In these times, we need a leader in whom we can have complete trust and confidence. By not having the courage or character to stand up and take full responsibility for the shortcomings of himself and his administration, the president of the United States sets the great ship of state on a bumpy and perilous course that could cause it to crash on the jagged rocks of history.
