Skip to comments.In Second Term, Obama Is Seen as Using ‘Hidden Hand’ Approach [LOL! Excuse Parade Continues!]
Posted on 07/16/2013 6:18:05 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
In the nearly two weeks since Egypts military seized power, President Obama has promoted a better federal bureaucracy, given a medal to George Lucas of Star Wars fame and had former President George Bush to the White House for lunch. What he has not done is publicly address the violent upheaval in Cairo.
That is not to say Mr. Obama is uninvolved. In the privacy of the West Wing, away from the cameras, he has made calls to leading figures in the Arab world and has met with advisers trying to influence the crisis. But his low public profile on issues like immigration, Syria and health care underscores a calculated presidential approach that admirers consider nuanced and detractors call passive.
While other presidents have put the bully in the bully pulpit, Mr. Obama uses his megaphone, and the power that comes with it, sparingly.....

Hilarious. The clown "addressed the nation" so many times after he seized power, I lost count. The FACT is that fewer people are listening to his blather.....He is so tiresome to so many, I doubt that he TRULY was re-elected.....though I suppose the surveys that show blacks showed up in a greater percentage in 2012 than 2008 may have made the difference.
I assume “Hidden Hand” approach is a golfing term?
I think the other term for it is “pocket pool”.
Actually a lot of what Obama wants is being done by others.
So, sitting on your a$$ doing nothing is now a strategy?
“Hidden hand” sounds like homosexual-code for something gross.
Possibly a reach around.
Same as “leading from behind”.
I think it would be best for us all if we just didn’t go ‘there’. Some songs are best left unsung. Some unseen hands, best left unimagined.
You’re probably right. Although I fully expect this homo to come out before much longer.
Obama "Leads From Behind" and "Uses The Hidden Hand".
His close friends have other names for it.
“I assume Hidden Hand approach is a golfing term?”
No. A bath house sauna move developed by Reggie Love.
