People are determined to be more informed, involved and impactful in making their voices heard, and to change this imbalance of power in the November 2010 elections. The voices of the people have caused Republicans to remain united against this tidal wave of socialism, and these same voices have caused moderate Democrats to not walk the political plank with Obama, Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The three critical things a leader must do are work on the right problems, listen and ask the right questions and remove barriers to self-motivation. In the last few weeks, President Obama and the Democrat leaders in Congress have demonstrated just the opposite.
Despite consistent polls that have shown the majority of the American public does not agree with the massive health-care proposal by President Obama and the Democrats to take over the entire health-care system in this country, they are trying to do it their way anyway. That's working on the wrong problem.
Rep. Paul Ryan did a compelling job of explaining the shell game the administration was using to make people believe that its health-care proposal would not add to the deficit, and that people's health insurance costs would go down. But at the so-called health-care summit, the president and the Democrats totally ignored Ryan's analysis. They are not listening. They don't even ask questions because they are convinced they are right.
Although Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., tried to make an impassioned speech that they were not considering the nuclear option called reconciliation if the Republicans did not cave to their plan, the president left the door open for such a tactic in his closing 10-minute remarks, which took 20 minutes. That uncertainty does not cause the American people to feel inspired. That's a barrier to self-motivation.
All three of these instances are classic examples of how not to lead. That's sad for our country, because what we need most right now is inspiring leadership.
