The most recent winner of the Nobel Peace Prize was given this Prize based not on what he had done (nothing) but on what he would do. What has he done now? Started another war.
Kucinich wants him impeached. The entire Left is angry because of Obama’s attack on Libya. Congress wants to know why they were not consulted – or even informed – before Obama attacked another country. Even Rangle wants to know what’s going on…
Obama has no exit available in Libya. Qaddafi isn’t going anywhere – Obama cut-off his exit routes. Qaddafi, with no reason not to kill as many of his rebel opponents as he can, will do so. And with no reason for Qaddafi Duck to go, he’ll stay… and outlast Obama and the West unless some nation is willing to invade Libya, which is NOT going to happen. More than likely the end-result of Obama’s adolescent un-thought-out attack on Libya will be a humanitarian disaster for Libyans much like the fix in which Bush41 left the Marsh Arabs after Kuwait – Saddam killed about 30,000 of them.
Though the Arab League initially requested a no-fly, they obviously hadn’t thought through that first you attack the enemy’s air defenses and, perhaps (though this is an escalation beyond a normal no-fly) bomb their airfields (as Obama has done). Now that they’ve seen the result of their request, the Arab League is demanding a stop to Obama’s Western attack on an Arab nation. Which, of course, Obama cannot do – disengage after making such a big deal about UN permission, Libyan freedom fighters, Qaddafi going, human rights and the rest of his case. He can’t just go home after spending all this money – and political capital.
Obama not only has started a war without permission, he has started one he can only lose.
Leader of the Free World? Ha! More like Academic leftist lost in the real world.
And Qaddafi, soon showing the Arab nations that he stood-up to his rebels – AND to America and the West, likely will become the model the other autocrats will emulate, to the detriment of their peoples. Look for more Arab nations to crush their dissidents, and for China, Myanmar and others to take note. So will Hugo Chavez.
Thanks, Barry! Yep! The world and its downtrodden can always count on the Left! … to make things WORSE.
GITMO is still open, military tribunals for terrorists are back-on, the Patriot Act has been renewed and Obama has agreed to Republican tax cuts. We remain in Afghanistan and Iraq, and have attacked Libya. The Left HATES all of this.
The economy is worse than when Obama took office, and gas prices far higher. Obama has increased an already unsustainable debt (one he hammered Bush for when it was $5 TRILLION DOLLARS LOWER, just TWO short years ago. The Right HATES all of this.
Our most important Asia ally is on life-support and Obama is in Rio at the beach. Left AND Right hate THIS.
Oh yeah – and Obamacare is unconstitutional.
It’s hard to find any winners in this, but everyone who counted on Obama certainly has lost. He’s even lost Farrakhan!
Obama has made worse everything he has touched.
What a leader!
Too busy with his NCAA brackets to pay attention, he has no idea what to do next. Lolling on the beach in Rio, he demonstrates to a by-now-convinced world the ignorant, naive adolescent he truly is.
So with Obama starting a new Arab war, two other wars likely to escalate with Arab anger at yet another American attack – yet Obama already has set an exit date in at least one of them, a date he likely now cannot meet – with GITMO still open and the Patriot Act renewed, the economy in a shambles and, with yet another attack on an Arab oil state, likely to get worse, with our largest overseas economic and military ally devastated by an enormous earthquake, a huge tsunami and nuclear meltdowns… all of which more than likely – far more than likely – to create a double-dip recession here, and with the world now noticing how irrelevant, unprepared and unserious is Obama, is Obama toast?
He more than likely has not realized this while on his all-expenses-paid-by-the-American-taxpayer vacation.
Either he’s just not smart enough to understand no one cares about him anymore (my own view), or he is not paying attention. I certainly cannot remember a more-irrelevant, less-consequential president. At least not an American president — maybe a “president” of some developing nation.
Following the American Civil War, General Sherman was talked-up for President. He refused in no uncertain terms. LBJ had his own Sherman moment in 1968: “If nominated I will not run, if elected I will not serve.”
Has Obama, lolling on the beach in Rio as he ignores Japan, attacks Libya, craters our economy, unknowingly set himself up for his own Sherman moment as his only option in 2012?
