    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is fed up with President Obama and his refusal to back a no-fly zone over Libya, according to an exclusive report in The Daily.

    “She’s trying to do what she can to keep things from imploding,” a Clinton insider told the online newspaper. “If you take a look at what’s on her plate as compared with what’s on the plates of previous secretary of states – there’s more going on now at this particular moment, and it’s like playing sports with a bunch of amateurs. And she doesn’t have any power.”

    The tension has even spilled over into her dealings with European diplomats. French President Nicolas Sarkozy urged Clinton to press the White House for more aggressive action in Libya. Clinton replied, “There are difficulties,” according to Foreign Policy magazine.

    One diplomat described Obama’s foreign policy shop as “amateur night.”

    Democrats in Congress say they have grown frustrated with President Obama’s lack of leadership in their ongoing battle with Republicans over spending cuts.
    Maybe he has left the blue team in the lurch, but it is hard to rouse too much sympathy for the dashing of such vain hopes.

    There is nothing in Obama’s career to suggest that he is one for political rough riding. So, for his fellow Democrats to express sudden dismay that the president isn't leading the charge seems rather odd.

    Obama, is still voting present just like he did in the Congress. World leaders view this administration with contempt. At least this guy is consistent.

    i'm afraid that he will end up a man without a party or a country, or even a clear cut political philosophy, but not too afraid. i still thing hillary will win his second term.

    i'd start with israel. of course france, but they always have (sarkosy i like) ...and the dutch... nobody likes the dutch. japan (the golf thing) the people of iran libya and all of the other arab countries. mexico because they do more than we (but obama's leaving the gates open for them). south america. cuba (castro) don't forget the united states and canada. karzai accepts our help and takes bags of cash from ahmadinijad, that seems contemptuous

    Aww, poor Hillary! She all these things to do but as Secretary of State, she has no power. Well let's just make her President so she has all the power she needs ok? Let's all feel sorry for her together.

    Fuck that old hag. I don't think I ever heard Henry Kissinger complain like she does.

    Silly Realist!!

    You expect details, logic....and, consistency from the 'Bagger-herd?!!

    :eusa_eh:

    Ya' gotta figure.....they were impressed with THIS clown!!

    I think it's safe to say....Republicans (and, their 'Bagger-groupies) have never fully-recovered from the mass-ass-kickin' Obama delivered.....when "conservatives" figured they had him cornered.

    Well that settles it.
    Democrats obviously have no clue what leadership means.
