Obama's speech shows his leadership

Re “Obama tells Congress: Help the poor or I will” (Page A1, Jan. 29): The Republicans in Congress like to accuse President Barack Obama of not leading, which is usually a euphemism for his not collapsing and agreeing to their demands. His State of the Union speech showed clear leadership on his part. Congress should consider the well-known saying from decades ago: "Lead, follow, or get out of the way." The House of Representatives can't do any of these things.
