Hillary Fed Up With Obama?Topics: Political News and commentaries
Fox Nation reports (emphasis mine):
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.Two thoughts come to mind; Hillary isn't the only one fed up with Barack Obama ... and the diplomat that described Obama's foreign policy shop as "amateur night" got it exactly right.
"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."
