According to a Politico article there are a group of Democrats challenging Prez Barack Obama’s decision, as well as the Constitutionality of the decision, to use military force against Libya. Okay. Anyone that reads much of my blog realizes that I think as a President, that Barack Obama is a Marxist wannabe and a PUTZ! So regular readers of my blog might be shocked that I actually agree with Obama’s decision to honor our NATO allies lead and bomb the Libyan military. (On a related tangent, I do not give a flying horse turd about whatever the -useless as teats on a boar- United Nations votes on the affair.)
Basically Obama is in a similar “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation that his predecessors from George W. Bush all the way back to Jimmy Carter faced when dealing with policy in the Middle East. The best any POTUS can do is find a way to sell his actions because there will be tons of human excrement dumped on the decision maker – whatever the individual decides.
However, as I inferred in my last post, that does not make 2011 POTUS Barack Obama any less of an enormous hypocrite when compared to the words of 2008 candidate Obama. Candidate Obama bashed Bush on his military actions as a path to become the current POTUS. Over on the Drudge Report they listed the 2011 Obama pre-military engagement of Libya oration versus the 2003 Bush Iraq oration:
MARCH 19, 2011
OBAMA: ‘Today we are part of a broad coalition. We are answering the calls of a threatened people. And we are acting in the interests of the United States and the world’…
MARCH 19, 2003
BUSH: ‘American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger’…
Wow – sounds like they hired the same speechwriter! No doubt about it – the longer Obama is in office the more his military dialogue resembles his predecessor – George W. Bush. I guess the Bush Deranged and lamestream media- whom pushed Obama into office- now have a Marxist-wannabe version of George W. Bush Jr. on their hands.
