Who is in charge?

Via Politico:

When Indian officials refused to back down, Gibbs intervened, announcing on the steps of the Hyderabad House, the main venue at the Indian equivalent of Camp David, that he would pull Obama out of his bilateral meeting with Singh unless “the White House 8” were allowed inside.

Really? The Press Secretary decides to whom and when Obama can talk?

Is the President so not in charge of his own staff that they can speak this way in public? Or is that just the way things work in the Obama administration? Obama has been an empty suit, guided by others his whole life so the staff guides his every move?

Either way, it’s shocking.

    I find that hard to believe, and if it’s true, then Obama has truly lost control…

    The guy’s volunteering to be thrown under the bus, for the cause of Obamunism.

    They push and push and push, and most of the time folks like that get their way. And when somebody else finally steps up to push back, Obama (or whoever) can step in personally, fire them, faux-apologize, and pretend it was all some power-mad flunkie and not a policy all along.

    It’s not an Obama thing. He plays the game, and probably dirtier than most, but it’s been a feature of politicos for a long time now.
