Unless it’s said by a fellow Demorat. From The Daily.com:
Fed up with a president “who can’t make his mind up” as Libyan rebels are on the brink of defeat, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is looking to the exits.At the tail end of her mission to bolster the Libyan opposition, which has suffered days of losses to Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s forces, Clinton announced that she’s done with Obama after 2012 — even if he wins again.“Obviously, she’s not happy with dealing with a president who can’t decide if today is Tuesday or Wednesday, who can’t make his mind up,” a Clinton insider told The Daily. “She’s exhausted, tired.”He went on, “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. She’s trying to do what she can to keep things from imploding.”Clinton is said to be especially peeved with the president’s waffling over how to encourage the kinds of Arab uprisings that have recently toppled regimes in Egypt and Tunisia, and in particular his refusal to back a no-fly zone over Libya.In the past week, former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton’s former top adviser Anne-Marie Slaughter lashed out at Obama for the same reason.
Huh; imagine that. A Demorat actually acknowledging that Mr Obama commits to nothing, decides nothing, sits back and prefers — as I’ve certainly stated before — to be “concerned” and “monitoring”?
Let’s tot things up on the Big Board, shall we?
March 11th, the 9.0 Richter Tohoku earthquake in Japan; Mr Obama played golf.
Egypt and Libya cooked off; Mr Obama was likewise “concerned” and “monitoring.” It was the UN which decided to instigate a “no fly” zone — not a unilateral Mr Obama, who is unfamiliar with the definition of the word.
Simultaneously, the Middle East continues to cook, in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, the UAE, Algeria, Morocco, Somalia, Tunisia (to name a few locales). Mr Obama concerns and monitors with unfurrowed, lethargic brow.
The country directly to our south, Mexico, is beyond merely cooking and is now boiling, bringing death to our border, into our nation, whilst our good, young men and women combat Mexican cartels with LTL beanbag shotguns vs fully automatic AK-47s, Ingrams, ARs and the like.
Meanwhile, back at the DC ranch, the Demorats and Mr Obama absolutely refuse to make significant cuts to the national budget, argue over defunding the CPB (a mockery of a do-nothing bill anyway!), whilst Republicans such as Boehner, Cantor and GOP Congressman Jack Kingston (his dribblings on Hugh Hewitt’s Wednesday show are here) indicate that — check this out — the GOP “needs to be more inclusive, collaborative and inclined towards compromise and concessions.”
Isn’t it odd, I should care to point out, that when the GOP is allegedly in power, it needs to compromise; when the Demorats are in power they can simply ram ObamaKare down the national throat.
Mr Obama indecisive? Perish the thought!
