Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is getting tired. Certainly, there are a tremendous number of world events that are stretching the State Department’s abilities, but it does not help if you have a boss that can’t seem to make a decisive decision on anything other than sports picks.
Heck, some would argue he’s not even definitive about his sports picks … maybe he’ll select his real choices for the final four once the Sweet 16 is over and done with. From The Daily.
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.”
Read the entire piece, which includes an interview with one insider, plus refers to statements by former President Bill Clinton, one of his previous top advisors, the French president, and a French diplomat. Add this all up and you’ve got a extraordinarily bad leadership issue that borders on a crisis.
The following quotes are from the Gridiron Club Dinner – including a stand-up comedy routine by the president – last week, but they were during the same period Gadhafi was slamming the Libyan opposition. This guy’s timing is terrible.
“I’ve dispatched Hillary to the Middle East to talk about how these countries can transition to new leaders — though, I’ve got to be honest, she’s gotten a little passionate about the subject,” Obama said to laughter from the audience.
“These past few weeks it’s been tough falling asleep with Hillary out there on Pennsylvania Avenue shouting, throwing rocks at the window.”
God forbid one of your top secretaries take her position seriously. Maybe he thinks Clinton should take up golf and ease up on the work schedule a little bit.
Amateur night it is…
