President Hillary, Sec. Gates To Brief Congress

This comes on the heals of President Clinton giving a brief press conference on the supposed transfer of power to someone within NATO

As the White House works to assuage congressional anger over U.S. entry into armed conflict in Libya, four top national security officials will give a classified briefing to lawmakers on the war next Wednesday afternoon.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Admiral Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, are all expected to speak on the topic of “U.S. Policies and Military Operations in Libya,” according to an invitation circulated to House members.

Oh, sorry, my bad, I though Hillary Clinton was president, what with all her face time on TV explaining what’s going on in Libya. Apparently, the real elected POTUS is avoiding any major Libyan address, like a boy avoiding mother after he broke the cookie jar

President Barack Obama is resisting pressure to deliver an Oval Office speech explaining his policy on Libya — in part, because he doesn’t want to equate what he regards as a smaller, time-limited mission with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Administration officials haven’t ruled out a big speech, but Obama is reluctant to make a major address on Libya until the United States hands over most command and combat duties to its allies.

That’s not to say the president won’t talk about Libya over the next few days, aides say, but he’s not likely to succumb to pressure to deliver a long, explanatory address to outline his elusive endgame to the nation until the path ahead becomes clearer

He doesn’t have to give a long, rambling lecture on the actions in Libya, but, a week later, it’d be nice if Champ would say something. We’ve witnessed him having fun in Latin America, kicking soccer balls and stuff, now it’s time to BE president, and discuss the situation with the American people.

    He won’t make any comments about his war in Lybia for the simple reason that he can’t. Their is nothing in his background that suggests he has the least ability to understand on any lever what’s going on in Lybia, or the world for that matter. If he did speak to the country on the “Kinetic Military Action” the odds of him saying something monumetally foolish throug sheer ignorance approach unity. Norman Schwarzkopf said: “Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.” 0 has neither.

    And, can someone recall if Condi Rice did all the talking for GW? I don’t think so, but will stand corrected if Bush himself didn’t speak about every major move he made in his wars…either way, can anyone tell us why the media remains practically silent on this?? Well, except for Jon Stewart that is. And he is a major news source…for the 10-35 years old crowd at least.

    What Trish said about Rick!!

    Hey Teach, why expect him to now BE president now that his vacations are over… he still has two more years of vacations left. he has no time to BE president. There are still plenty of other hot vacation spots to hit while on the tax-payer’s dime.
