Does Obama have the leadership to lead, with leadership? Can he game-change the Overton Window from the Bully Pulpit on steroids? Ron Fournier has a framework to allow you to answer these pressing questions. Sample:
The pronouns: Count how many times Obama uses the words “I,” “me,” and “my.” Compare that number to how often he says, “You,” “we,” “our.” If the first number is greater than the second, Obama has failed.
More “wes” and “ours,” and Obama could have passed the ACA with unanimous Republican support. WILL HE EVER LEARN HIS LESSON?
