  •  Would have been better if he had done this (0+ / 0-)

    before Hagel. As it is, it looks like he's just being a copycat after Hagel announced his voluntary pay cut.

    •  Nothing's worse than seeing someone do good (3+ / 0-)

      and then doing the same. People should copyright their good deeds to prevent this crap!

        Imagine if the Occupy Wall Street activists had copyrighted "Occupy"?   heh.  

        But seriously folks...

        I barely heard about Hagel's action but Obama's action is widely reported.  I don't think the PR value would be different if Obama was first, second, or tenth.  

        Even if a high-ranking Republican (not in the Executive) was before Obama, Obama's action would still get the most press.
