Analysis Of President Obama's Leadership And Management Style

President Barack Obama has faced criticism in recent weeks for what the White House says he did not know. The first has to do with the Affordable Care Act’s website and whether Obama should have been informed about the extent of the technical problems before the rollout. The second is why the president was not aware the NSA was eavesdropping on European leaders. Obama has the reputation for being the kind of leader more interested in major policy initiatives than minor details. But the latest embarrassments have even some of the president’s supporters questioning his management style. Diane and her guests discuss President Obama’s leadership and management style.
