Former Democratic operative Kirsten Powers said on Fox’s “Outnumbered” Thursday the problems with the Obama administration stem from the fact that the president surrounds himself with “people who such up to him” and “Kool-Aid drinkers.”

I really think that [President Obama] is the problem, I don’t think it’s the staff… I think that the president tends to surround himself with people who suck up to him, you know? And he doesn’t — he claims that he had this idea like Lincoln, he was going to have all these people disagreeing with each other, but I don’t think he really has. I think he has a lot of Kool-Aid drinkers who think everything he does is right, and I think he needs to be able to have people there to confront him.
