Obama emoted his human kindness towards the Libyan people before a national audience tonight and pretty much said that he acted unilaterally. In our name at his personal disgression. In regards to Khaddafi murdering his own people Obama declared…
I refused to let that happen.
Obama, not America, acted decisively. Nurturing. Caring. The King of the new Caliphate had no time to discuss this with the reckless Infidels of America.
OK. Off to Rio. Woo Hoo!! Spring Break!! Check you all later.
But he’s over his indignation now and he’s turned the ugly details over to inferiors like the military, NATO, the international community and all that useless rabble.
Listening to John Bolton in the background as I type this he characterized His Petulance’s speech as a ‘Dog’s Breakfast’. Good description. The more I listen to Bolton the more I gravitate towards his Presidential camp, but I digress.
The next sentence after Dear Leader’s declaration that HIS will be done was this…
And so nine days ago, after consulting the bipartisan leadership of Congress, I authorized military action to stop the killing and enforce UN Security Council Resolution 1973.
That’s hilarious. Congress reacted to his decision to deploy the military to Khadaffi-squashing with unanimous surprise and indignation, from John Boehner to Dennis Kucinich.
Rio Boy consulted exactly…NOBODY, and the uprising was the only reason he gave this excessively tardy post operation speech at all.
Here’s what I did for you, America. THANK ME.
The American people are now asking how we can get a no fly zone out of DC. We’re looking for a full time President. Presidential cameos are not really helpful.
Update: To bolster commenter McMartin’s point, here is Eric Cantor on Libya from last night.
