Obama 'Furious' With Hillary State Department Over Egypt

Is a civil war brewing between the Obama White House and Hillary Clinton's State Department?
A New York Times story published this weekend suggests one may have erupted already.
On Saturday, the Times, quoting numerous White House sources, sought to explain the Obama administration's erratic policy statements during the Egyptian crisis.
The paper reported that Obama was "seething" over State Department officials's statement suggesting that the administration did not want a quick transition of power in Egypt, with President Hosni Mubarak stepping down from his office immediately.
The Times states that Mr. Obama "was furious" about Clinton's and Wisner's statements, "as Mr. Obama was demanding that change in Egypt begin right away."
Secretary Clinton was not the only figure who opposed Obama's view. Clinton was joined by Vice President Joe Biden and Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who also were advocating that Obama adhere to a cautious and more traditional foreign policy approach toward the situation in Egypt.
Unhappy about the mixed signals high-ranking officials were giving, Obama intervened directly, telling White House advisers that "this was not the message we should be delivering.
According to the Times, the Obama White House even recruited Democratic Sen. John Kerry to appear on "Meet the Press" last Sunday to contradict Wisner's statements that reflected Secretary Clinton's views. Wisners comments just dont reflect where the administration has been from day one, Kerry said on the program.

I wonder if obama cowers like a little child when she explodes like Bill does.
Does anyone believe this? Obama has no credibility here. Hitlary is his mouthpiece and she works for him. The WH is the one out giving victory lap speeches before any thing happened with Mubarek. This is just the One throwing a tantrum because he looks stupid here.
Hillary may work for Obama but that doesn’t mean she is going to listen to him. She didn’t even listen to her husband, the President, if you remember.
Heck Hillary actually did serve in the Senate for enough time to learn a little bit, plus of course her distinguished career as First “Lady”. She’s a rookie who doesn’t know what she’s doing at State but she’s WAY more experienced that Oh Bammer.
Well if Clinton went off on her own and spouted off without first checking with the White House then I can’t blame Obama for being pissed. Or for asking Hillary what she planned on doing once her government service was over.
With (.)bama looking like the ass he is during this whole event, Hitlery must know the bus is warming up.
I wonder if Obama will call Hillary in and tell her, “Let me make one thing clear—Egypt is an African country, and I don’t want any honkie woman to tell me how to handle it.”
Put up a cage on the White House lawn, lock Hillary and Obama in and let them have a good old fashioned cat fight. After the eye gouging and hair pulling my bet is Hillary would be the one to walk out of the cage.
I wonder how Obama feels about Islamic fundamentalist Iran
It’s not good to cross a Clinton!
I couldn’t help but think of this:

Bill and Hill need to retire from public service and return to Arkansas and stay there.
I am surprised he still does not know about the coup she has had planned since the primary season wrapped up.
At any minute I expect Hillary to stomp into the White House and start throwing lamps and ashtrays.
Obama attempts to introduce Hillary to the underside of his bus.
Hillary introduces Obama to “Ashtray of Thump”?
