Clinton Disses Obama, Calls it Quits

Hillary is yet another one leaving Obama's cabinet. Sounds like Hillary has become increasingly frustrated at an president who "can't make his mind up." For all intents and purposes, Obama seems to be voting "present" on whatever action should be taken in Libya (and Japan for that matter). I completely agree with one of Hillary's insiders who described Obama's foreign policy as "amateur night." I would even take it a step further, calling Obama's domestic policy as amateur night as well.

But I disagree if Hillary's source of frustration is Libya and that we should be supporting the rebels, which many seem to agree with these days. Does anybody actually know who these rebels are and what they support? I think the answer is no. Why shouldn't we just sit it out sometimes and let the world figure it out? It's very possible that the solution to Libya will be worse than what we have.

Don't get me wrong, Qaddafi is a mad man, a terrorist and although crackpots like Farraqan and Jeremiah Wright, (and thus probably Obama as well) have historically supported him, I just think that the US might be getting mixed up in something we know nothing about.

We chose sides in Kosovo and found out a year later that both sides had mass graves and so our initial indication was wrong. So I see no harm in waiting to see what happens.

In the meantime, Japan does need help, and Obama is trying to figure out who has the better outside game, Ohio State or Kansas.
