The Indecisive President

President Obama has already defined himself as indecisive, both on internationaand domestic matters.  But part of being President is making tough decisions -- even politically tough ones.

It's high time that President Obama decided whether or not he is serious about insourcing jobs.  If he is, he should approve the Keystone XL pipeline.  Labor and business both want him to do it.  Environmentalists, of course, do not.

No doubt it's tough for the President having two big constituencies -- labor and environmentalists -- on opposite sides of the issue.  

As long as he drags out the decision-making, the President can raise funds from both.  But that's not what being President is about.
