Here's White House press secretary Jay Carney explaining why the president hasn't given a satisfactory response to the situation in Libya:

"This is a scheduling issue. The president will meet with Secretary of State Clinton this afternoon. We will have something to say out of that meeting. If possible, the President will speak this afternoon or tomorrow," White House press secretary Jay Carney says about President Obama's lack of response to the crisis in Libya.

What's the word I'm looking for? Oh yeah -- "pathetic."
