For Obama, B-ball more important than stopping genocide
Why did it take President Obama nine days to speak out against the atrocities taking place in Libya? After all, he immediately came out to condemn Mubarak when protesters spoke up in Egypt.
Jay Carney, the President’s new Press Secretary, explained, “This is just a scheduling issue. As I said, the president will meet with Secretary of State Clinton this afternoon, his regular meeting and they will obviously discuss Libya. He will have something to say at that meeting and it’s possible the president will speak this afternoon or tomorrow.”
So it’s a scheduling issue? That excuse did not satisfy Glenn.
“I believe he was practically, you know, calling us all at home saying Mubarak has got to go, and look at those dear sweet children in the streets of Egypt,” Glenn joked.
