My Take: By Matthew McCully

Politicians choose their words carefully. The good ones, at least. So it’s pretty rare that you will hear something during a press conference that was said by mistake.
Sometimes it’s planting a seed, sometimes it’s testing the waters, but it is always deliberate.
I’m not a fan of that tactic.
I would much rather a government make a decision and commit to a plan than throw a bunch of stuff at the public and see what sticks.
I think that’s the difference between true leadership and self-preservation.
When a government is acting in the best interests of the population as a whole, they give you the good, the bad and the ugly.
Tossing out half plans and unclear directives and keeping a record of the public pushback is a way to avoid making difficult decisions and absolving a government of any responsibility for its failures.
