Reporter: President Thin-Skin Will Sack McChrystal After His Honest Rolling Stone Interview
Con Coughlin at The Telegraph believes General McChrystal is a goner after his honest reflections on the clueless Obama Administration.
Oh dear, I fear General Stanley McChrystal will be making a one-day trip to Washington after U.S. President Barack Obama summoned him to Washington to explain his less than flattering remarks about the Obama administration that are due to appear in this week’s edition of Rolling Stone magazine.
Gen McChrystal has already apologised for the remarks, but that has not saved him from Mr Obama’s rage. There are many misguided souls in this world who still believe that the American president who is fundamentally a nice guy, who doesn’t get involved in petty political in-fighting.
Well, they are about to have a rude awakening. You don’t get to be elected President of the United States simply for a being a nice guy. You need to be a ruthless, political opportunist, and Mr Obama has these qualities in abundance.
Last year President Obama came under attack after General McChrystal admitted to the media that he had only spoken to Obama once during Obama’s first 70 days as president.
