Mind Boggling Foreign Policy

So Long Hillary
Hillary Clinton told reporters that she will not serve another term overseeing the State Department, even if President Obama wins reelection in 2012 { Article}. She also said she has no interest in any other government positions after she leaves. “Hillary decided this is it for her and she’s done as soon as she can get out of there,” fill-in host Mark Simone said. “In Egypt Obama sort of supported Mubarak at first but then also kind of supported the rebels. Then he couldn’t decide whether Mubarak should stay or go. Then the same thing happened in Libya with Kadafi. Hillary is unhappy with President Obama’s dithering and his inability to come up with much.” Finally, something we can all agree with Hillary about.

Mind Boggling Foreign Policy
Mark Simone welcomed Pat Cadell to the show’s second hour to discuss Obama’s handling of Libya and Japan. “I don’t think there is anybody in the Obama White House that is telling the President that he’s done a great job,” said Cadell. “You can start with the National Security Advisor Tom Donilon who has no experience with foreign policy and is running around all over the place. There is literally no foreign policy in this country. And now they get a no fly zone resolution passed after Kadafi has almost wiped all the rebels out. It’s just mind boggling. I just can’t believe it, I just don’t know what he’s thinking,” Cadell said incredulously.

Newt Rates Obama's Crisis Management
The nuclear emergency in Japan continues and the turmoil in Libya is at a boiling point. Finally, after days and days of inaction, the Obama administration took some time to address these growing crises. President Obama took a break from golfing and filling out his brackets to visit the Japanese embassy in Washington. He also delivered a brief statement about the uncertainty surrounding the situation at the Fukushima nuclear plant. But as usual, he refused to take questions from the press. So, what took the president so long to grapple with all of these crises going on? Newt Gingrich joined Sean on ‘Hannity’ and gave his viewpoint. “I think what is increasing clear that we have a spectator in chief instead of a commander in chief. It is maybe the most passive and out of touch presidency in modern American history. He makes Jimmy Carter's micromanaging the tennis courts at the White House look tiny compared to the degree to which he's avoiding doing his job right now,” Gingrich commented. As for Newt had some harsh words for Obama who seems to be focusing a large portion of his attention on golf and picking his brackets for the ongoing NCAA basketball tournament than on the turmoil in Japan and Lybia. “The Final Four for the president should have been one, enough jobs to get unemployment down to four percent. Two, enough American oil and gas production to get gasoline prices down to two dollars. Three, balance the federal budget with a much smaller federal government. And four, control the border.” To watch Sean’s interview with Newt Gingrich please click here.
