In stark contrast, Romney cuts of his staffers (0.00 / 0)
credit cards. What a @#$@#$@. Thank god Obama's our president, not this sociopath Willard.

That's the difference between (0.00 / 0)
a democratic (with a small "d") leader, and a standard issue authoritarian boss-leader.It's "'You guys' lifted me up" instead of "'You people' know all you need to know." It's a difference that the rightists will never, ever, quite get their minds around---- much less their hearts. It is also a very difficult kind of leadership to show, to have, to implement successfully; one which delegates power and responsibility down to the lowest level, yet still manages to control the results because, right down to the lowest level, the followers share the vision of the leader, and have accepted responsibility for following on their own. What Jim Webb understood as well, with his "ragtag army" where the lowest troop was his own general.
