Austerity (Photo credit: GoatChild)


A true leader leads from the front, not from behind the lines. Now that he has the nomination sewed up, it is time for Mitt to show us what his administration would look like. He intends to give us austerity per the Ryan budget. I disagree with the prescription that the 1% gets tax cuts while the rest of us share the austerity. However, if that is what Mitt wants, then he should lead the way. He can start by refusing the President’s salary, he doesn’t need it, and he can pay for some of the perks of his office. Mitt, it is time to stop trying to be all things to all men/women, and start showing some leadership. Being President requires more than looking presidential.
