The Pilot in command is the ultimate authority on whether or not the flight flies. So naturally, any flight cancellations would generally be his responsibility. Now I know that there are times where the decision is obvious, but there are a lot of marginal times when the pilot can overrule his dispatcher and/or the rest of the company and say "this flight isn't going anywhere". Yes, in this instance it isn't the pilot's fault, but your original post made it seem like every delay is always management's fault, I was just pointing out that a lot of the time, it isn't. Management doesn't determine the airworthiness of the aircraft

Just because daddy says otherwise doesn't mean he's right.

Oh? You just noticed it's dumb for half the country to travel to another part of the country on the same day?
