Another member of Obama’s stellar foreign policy crew popped a gasket today. Last week we learned that his senior economic advisor, Austan Goolsbee, was dishing dirt to the Canadians, never thinking for a minute that the Canadians would report what he said. Today it is Samantha Power. Power is in Europe (I hope she takes photos to show her boss) and was being interviewed by The Scotsman. Ms. Power:
told The Scotsman Mrs Clinton was stopping at nothing to try to seize the lead from Mr Obama.
“We f***** up in Ohio,” she admitted. “In Ohio, they are obsessed and Hillary is going to town on it, because she knows Ohio’s the only place they can win.
“She is a monster, too – that is off the record – she is stooping to anything,” Ms Power said, hastily trying to withdraw her remark.
Isn’t that precious. Calls Senator Clinton and monster and then belatedly realizes that she is commenting on the record. Was she hammering some single malts? And she wants a do over. How cute! And to think that Barack Obama sought her out to be his top foreign policy advisor? Man, what other hidden gems are lurking out there waiting to show their true selves?
So, it is bad enough that Barack Obama does not visit Europe, does not hold a hearing on Afghanistan, and has one of his senior foreign policy advisors (Susan Rice) admits that he is not ready to answer a 3am phone call. He also is relying on a name calling airhead to head his foreign policy team. Great? I bet Iran’s Ahmadinejad cannot wait to sit down and open talks with this group of clowns.
