Pushing for Decision

Generally speaking, the harder someone presses me to do something, the more I delay decision and, if they press hard enough long enough, I will decide against them merely because of their pressure. I am always suspicious when someone is unwilling to back off and allow me to think about a decision; to reach my own decision.

Apparently Obama has that same disposition. Quite a few people are trying to steamroll him into sending more troops into Afghanistan, and the more pressure he gets the more he seems to be "studying the alternatives."

I think that is a very good quality in a President.

yeah, I am the same way... The more someone pushes the more it seems suspicious. Besides, maybe they pushers are forgetting the most crucial thing: Obama is the boss.
