The Indecisive President

President Obama has already defined himself as indecisive, both on international
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.
