Ask and Tell, Mr. President (VIDEO)

President Obama is asking a lot of foreign leaders, but they are not telling him what he wants to hear. In this CQ Politics video I explore the nature of this new president's style. Maybe it's time for him to do less asking and instead let underlings work out the agreements so that when he finally does do the asking he gets the answers that he wants to hear . . .
