Condoleezza Rice was mostly quiet about Obama’s candidacy in the 2008 election cycle, but this year she’s making no secret of the fact that she doesn’t prefer Obama’s style of leadership.
“I think we need a greater, more assertive America in the world. Now, with the positive shock on people insisting on their Democratic rights, the United States can’t lead from behind,” said Rice
Rice did give Obama small praise for fighting the “War on Terror”, but gave most of the credit for killing Osama bin Laden to George W. Bush.
“President Bush left a lot of tools to President Obama,” Rice said. “He left him a military and intelligence integration that has worked exceedingly well as we were able to even bring bin Laden to justice.”
She went on to insinuate that President Obama lacks vision.
“The United States has to have a view, it has to gather people around that view, and frankly, I think we need to do more of that, and the last several years I think we’ve been lacking on that front.”
