World Needs Leaders, Quick or Wise?

On ABC's This Week, President-elect Barack Obama's right hand man spoke. David Axelrod said, “I think that the events around the world demand that he act quickly, and I think you’ll see him act quickly.”

The world demands he act wisely, not quickly. America voted against relying on force, rewarding the corporate elite, and tampering in other countries. The world cheered.

Axelrod's "quickly" means plans are in place. Contrast Obama's time frame for action with the label for people concerned about his reneging on those 500 campaign promises. They are called "impatient."

Labels, frames and plans, oh my! Substitute wisdom, please.
