Panetta Criticizes Obama's Hands-Off Approach

Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta rebuked President Obama's hands-off approach to the budget crisis, the Washington Post reports.

Said Panetta: "We govern either by leadership or crisis... If leadership is not there, then we govern by crisis. Clearly, this town has been governing by crisis after crisis after crisis."

He added: "You have to engage in the process. This is a town where it's not enough to feel you have the right answers. You've got to roll up your sleeves and you've got to really engage in the process . . . that's what governing is all about."
