Obama op-ed

President Obama wrote an op-ed piece that appears in today's Washington Post. I had planned on writing a response but Keith Hennessey beat me to it. I will, however, single out this part:
There are some who say we must wait to meet our greatest challenges. They favor an incremental approach or believe that doing nothing is somehow an answer. But that is exactly the thinking that led us to this predicament. Ignoring big challenges and deferring tough decisions is what Washington has done for decades, and it's exactly what I sought to change by running for president.
This is a strawman. No one is saying this. Such tactics are becoming rather tiresome.
