As the two houses of Congress debate resolutions that run the gamut from authorizing and limiting President Obama’s Libya action to defunding the Libya war altogether, and as the NATO begins to complement its ineffectiveness with internal discord, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is questioning her former legislative colleagues’ patriotism.
“Who’s side are you on?” she demanded today, lashing out at Congress while on an official visit to Jamaica. According to the AP report, “Clinton says Congress is free to raise objections but questions the priorities of the critics. She says the Obama administration and its partners are rightly siding with the Libyan people.”
This is just another example of this administration’s poor communication skills and inability to defend its decisions and actions on their own merits, rather than resorting to straw men and over declarations of ill intent on the part of their opponents. In other words, this is just another example of the Obama administration’s status as the embodiment of the left’s caricature of George W. Bush.
Final question: What happened to the then-Senator from New York’s shrill, screeching declaration that “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration!!”?
Apparently that position had an expiration date of 1/20/20082009. How typical.
