GOP Sen: Scandals expose Obama leadership weakness
Thursday - 4/19/2012, 2:07pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) - A Southern Republican is raising questions about whether President Barack Obama is capably leading the government.
Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama tells reporters the president should take responsibility for the Secret Service, GSA and energy company Solyndra scandals and insist on a government culture in which taxpayer dollars are not wasted. He said, "I don't sense that this president has shown that kind of managerial leadership."
Sessions is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is expected to receive a briefing Friday from the Secret Service and hold a hearing next week. The service has ousted three of 11 agents and officers alleged to have cavorted with prostitutes in Colombia in advance of Obama's visit there.
The president has pushed for a thorough investigation into the incident.
