Too much 'do as I say, not as I do'

As an officer in the military for 30 years, I learned early on that if you wanted the troops to do something, you had better darn well do it yourself. Whether it was haircuts, shoe shines, or any of the other minor irritants of military life, leadership by example was critical to maintain moral and overall effectiveness.

So why is it that the president, and that Washington social club called the U.S. Senate, believe it is OK to flaunt the law requiring timely budget submissions (president) or passing a budget at all (Senate)?

After all it is a law.
