Critics Rip Obama’s Response To Libya

March 23, 2011 by  

Critics rip Obama's response to LibyaPresident Barack Obama has fielded heavy criticism in recent days after the United States joined an international military campaign against Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

Many politicians, including members of the President's own party, are perplexed by several aspects of the recent bombings. Some critics have blasted Obama for his slow response to the human rights violations committed by Gadhafi, while others have questioned the need for U.S. military involvement in Libya while the military is still fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In addition, Obama recently embarked on a five-day economic tour of Latin America, which some conservatives are calling a "Rio vacation," according to the Boston Herald. The conflict in Libya adds to the laundry list of crises on the President's plate, including skyrocketing gas prices, uncertainty about nuclear safety following the earthquake in Japan and an unresolved budget on Capitol Hill.

"Leading up to the military action, I think people are really feeling a lack of confidence in his leadership," Todd Domke, a Republican media strategist, told the media outlet. "It’s part of a pattern where it doesn’t seem he’s on top of the right things and he’s not acting as a commander-in-chief."

The latest Harris Poll indicates that the President's popularity among voters is waning, as well. According to the survey, which was conducted between March 7 and 14, only 39 percent of respondents gave Obama a positive job rating, which is down from 42 percent in February and 44 percent in January.

    It’s just what we’ve come to expect from a socialist who has no clue about world affairs except for those he views through his distorted sense of right and wrong.

    • Harold Olsen

      Remember Hillary Clinton’s comment during the 2008 campaign about the 3:00 call? It looks like she was right about Obama. Instead of acting immediately as he should have, he waited a couple of weeks and it took France, of all countries to take the lead, basically forcing him to take action. His Nazi associates in his regime like to say not to let a good crisis go to waste. He has no idea what to do in a crisis except leave the country. That is what he has done every time a crisis has come up. Hopefully, in 2012 we’ll elect a real president. Bush wasn’t much, but, he knew how to react in a crisis.

        President Obama should be impeached for committing “war crimes” in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama should be impeached for military strikes into Libya.

        • http://MSN.com Peter Green

          I agree with getting Obama out! I don’t think you can impeach a president who is not a citizen, I have read. If Obama were a citizen, he would have not concealed his records through 11 law firms in 12 states, and my question to Pelosi is why she did purposively falsified his records using Obama’s half sister Live Birth Records in Hawaii, Mayo Soetoro, to make Obama’s records legit?

          Pelosi, Holder are the two that really know about Obama’s background and how he got here. Purposively, Obama’s SSN is from Connecticut…from a deceased person and he is from Hawaii?? Too many questions unanswered here. Yes, arrest him first and only then can we begin to heal our nation. There must be Government Reform and stiffer regulations on who can become president.

          Limit Terms, more accountability and penalties for not following guidelines AND put the power in the people’s hands to be able to get these people out sooner if the country is going in the wrong direction. Let’s get the ball rolling now and get Obama out!!

          • shere

            I believe Obama has an agenda that he is a puppet & higher powers are pulling his strings. He definitely wasn’t ready to lead a superpower, he got in over his head & the American people are paying the price.
            We have no hope in Obama or his leadership. He is a Socialist pro muslim & his ideas are not in linewith what our country needs. On his watch we’ve gotten involved in another middle east conflict, the eonomy is
            tanking, we’re getting ready to go into another housing foreclosure & short sale mess, bank foreclosures & double dip recession or depression. God is the only one who can save this country but the people have to turn to him, ask for forgiveness of sin & do a 90% turn around back to christain values if we don’t America will fall no longer be a superpower. Prayer is the key to God’s answer to the world’s problems but he won’t listen unless we turn our lives over to him. In God we trust not man

      Are you going to drag out coffins of fake blood protesting this war? Are you going to write books about assasinating President Obama? Are you going to protest with signs that say “no blood for oil!!!” Or are only democrats permitted to warmonger?

      • http://www.piedmontwebmasterservices.com Dan

        You are totally wrong. His critics on the left and right have been ripping him over his little war with Libya. His left wing base is totally against war and have criticized him the most and have even gone as far as suggesting his actions may be impeachable. THIS IS NOT COMING FROM THE RIGHT. Democrats in congress have suggested this.

        Soldier, if Obama and Biden were worthy of being in the WH, they’d put on uniforms, get some weapons, head to Libya and SHOW America and the world what they can do.
        Obama and Biden can pass for wannabe corporatists or union organizers, but leaders of America’s soldiers, sailors and airmen they’re NOT. Biden needs to resign and retire, and Obama should have the decency to return that Nobel Peace Prize that he never earned.

    • http://www.piedmontwebmasterservices.com Dan

      Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich has gone so far as to suggest Obama be impeached. Kucinich’s sentiments were shared by fellow anti-war democrats Maxine Water, Sheila Jackson Lee, Jerrold Nadler and Mike Capuano. This was reported by Israeli News and others.

      • Eddie47d

        Yes,Impeach all warmongers! Bush/Cheney and now Obama! Obama better hope the Libyan crises is resolved soon and better wish even harder that Gaddafi doesn’t stay in power.He could be cleaning egg off his face on this one or he could pull it off. For now I’ll bet on the former.

        • Eddie47d

          I figured a Conservative would miss the connection and the reality of impeaching any President if others have done the same thing.

    • http://www.boblivingstonletter.com/ Bob Livingston

      Dear Polski,

      If you’re suggesting we are supportive of the Republican Party, you haven’t been paying attention. And if you call Representatives Jerrold Nadler, Donna Edwards, Mike Capuano, Dennis Kucinich, Maxine Waters, Rob Andrews, Sheila Jackson Lee, Barbara Lee and D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton to be Republicans, then, yeah, it’s only Republicans that oppose the Libya action. I’m sure they’d take offense to being called Republicans.

      Of course, you should never let the facts get in the way of a good rant.

      Best wishes,
      Bob

      i believe obama was very critical of bush starting the war in iraq without congressional approval. did obama get permission from congress to start this crap? NO!!!!!!!!!!! he said what bush did was unconstitutional, but now it’s okay for him to do it? i think not. just goes to show how many hypocrites there are out there.

      • http://naver sook young

        Sorry, but we had the Congress ans Senate vote before going to Afghanistan and Iraq. Hillary, Pelosi, Boxer, and others voted in favor of going there before our troops were sent. Why do you people always say about Bush and Iraq? At least Bush did things according to the Constitution. Obama just sent ships and planes to Lybia without any Congressional approval. Shouldn’t we try to impeach him for this? Thank you.

        UN & NATO were starting the conflict US was assisting so the muslims wouldn’t blame us for invading a muslim country. Saudi’s hates Gadafi but don’t have the balls to get involved. What about genocide in Rawanda & other African countries by dictators. Noone seems to do anything for these poor people
        Maybe because they have no oil & aren’t valuable. Hypocrites. Katrina is another disgusting mess
        if they had been white Bush would have hopped to it. I think we should just take Gadafi out & be done with it. Why waste our money on this psycho killing his own people. He’s beginning to sound like Charlie

      The Kenyan has been popular in South America as US Presidents go…
      But CNN reported that the crowds that were expected to be along the Hiways and Boulevards waving the American Flag and chanting shouting and waving to Mr. Hopey Changey…”weren’t there”.

      Even Democrats, which is surprising, are criticizing Obama and the way he is doing his job. People like Kucinich. Though, his criticism doesn’t really surprise me. In 2004 when he made a failed attempt at running for president, the American communist party said they wouldn’t be fielding a candidate that year because in Dennis Kucinich they were well represented. Their words, not mine.

      We are in agreement, ~ “O” is threading a needle and laying the ground work for the future of the US and the world.

      I wish the GOP would get back on track with the “JOBS” agenda they promised us that they could do better with.

      So far it appears that they are still wanting to throw money at Robber Barron’s and somehow “JOBs” will be created! They are requiring no promise, no commitment, no proposal, no plan as “O” stimulus money that afforded States the time to make the “hard” choices dry up this summer.

      The States have set on their hands for two years.

      • spitfire

        How is the GOP to start jobs? I thought you were against socialism? You cannot bring back a strong manufacturing secter in America, unless the UNIONs are gone, and People are willing to work for less, in order to compete in the new world trade order. Do you really think that people in countries that make $2/day will be able to buy from us, a country where the worker makes $20/hour? There is also to0 many government restrictions and a very tax hungry government that likes to dig into profits. America has a lousy business environment, and it is getting worse by the minute.There also does not seem to be the spirit for doing anything innovative, or by ones self. We have become a help me society, and not the I can do that society of the past. The American people are why we have too much government and very few jobs, with their “help me, I want more, more, more, and I want it cheap, cheap, very cheap and high quality” mentality.

        • Eddie47d

          Spitfire; What hourly wages could YOU survive on and anybody else who keeps bringing up that question? American workers should expect less and stop demanding more but how far down the rabbit hole should we take them? If you don’t slash corporate salaries then all this talk is meaningless. How about salaries that are no higher than 30% of the average employee of any company for corporate execs? Is that fair to you?

          • barbm

            no, it’s not. these are PRIVATE corporations, so the govt has no right to dictate wages. i can live frugally on my social security if there are no emergencies. that’d be $1060 monthly which is about minimum wage. there are very few companies that pay minimum these days. even fast food chains pay above that. i think a fair liveable wage for somebody with no more than a highschool education is $10 hourly. if you want more, go to college or a trade school. plumbers, mechanics, and electricians make more than most ambulance chasers. my son makes about $4000 monthly working on car air conditioners with only 2 years of college. of course, we’re in texas where it’s hot as hades most of the year. he’s tired of working in the texas heat, so he’s at utsa working on his engineering degree which will probably double that mechanic salary. you just have to be willing to work for the degree and work at a job to be successful. if not, then you need to be frugal.

He’s doing a fine job of destroying the very foundation of this Constitutional Republic, and he can’t stay at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue long enough to do any real work that might benefit American–but, he never had any intention of ever doing anything FOR Americans, only TO Americans. He has done everything that he has no authority to do, and NO ONE in congress has done one thing to attempt to alter his course of putting every working American Citizen into default. He starts a war in Libya and bolts for South America–there is no legal authority for this military action in Libya. Quack-daffy is the last thing that he should be involved with. The domestic issues brought upon American Citizens by government since even before 1913 should be his focus, but hanging out on a golf course, flying out of country, guessing who is going to win a freakin’ basketball game, and ridding you of your Unalienable rights is his only interest.

    As long as it is done under the authority of the UN Security Council, humanitarian intervention by the international community is not only legal under international law, it is required. Just because the international community (including the US) cannot respond to every humanitarian crisis, does not mean that it should not respond to any. President Obama briefed key Congressional Democratic and Republican leaders before joining the international community in taking action against Libya. His actions, and those of the rest of the international community, are legal, moral, and stand in marked contrast to our previous president’s actions with respect to Iraq.

    It’s interesting how “conservative”/Republicans/”Christians” writing on this site supported and rationalized the illegal and immoral actions of President Bush in Iraq, now condemn the legal and moral behavior of President Obama in Libya.

    Those domestic “critics” who argue that President Obama should have come before Congress, asked for permission, allowed time for Congress to debate and then vote, makes as much sense as critics calling for a committee to meet, to discuss, and to vote on whether to send the fire department to a burning house with women and children in it.

    • spitfire

      In your infinite wisdom, did you ever think we are sick and tired of spending money for wars to help our enemies the Muslims. Who are we really giving humanitarian aid to anyway? Basically a bunch of BARBARIANS. Islam wants the world, and knows how to manipulate us into helping them do it. Look at the Muslim mess in France,Germany,England, with the failed multi-culturalism. It is also failing us here in the homeland. You liberals simply do not get it, an want to amputate the leg to spite a limp.

      DL, do you have a conscience? Do you claim to have any moral sense? Did you ever learn the difference between right and wrong? These are fair questions. Your last paragraph defines what you believe in, and any rational adult will have serious reservations seeing you as a friend or a functional citizen.
      You claim a prez would be ‘guilty’ of wasting time talking to Congress (did Libya invade America when we weren’t looking?). You might read the Constitution once in a while. You might get acquainted with American history, and you might learn the difference betwen a functional president and a DICTATOR.
      Show some integrity. Your White House fakir [the Nobel Peace Prize winner himself], doesn’t have what it takes to be a leader. He’s exporting “democracy” for his puppet masters, and he’s insuring that America will chase perpetual peace through perpetual war. Some ‘god’ you have, guy. And some follower your ‘god’ has.

      Nobody is discussing bush here, except you. bush was/is a progressive with a NWO agenda as well, and I admit I was blind to most of it until he came back from the G8 in the summer of 2007 and was full-throttle trying to ram that amnesty crap down our throats. Then, I woke up to the horror of that potus. Now, we have the most bizarre imposter ever to occupy the WH, and he lied to America and those 62 million lemmings that voted him into office on one key point–he was going to end the war in Iraq, and he was going to cut troops in Afghanistan. None of that has taken place, but all you can scrape together is that none of the conservatives didn’t say anything when bush was pushing the buttons. You were lied to, and you can’t think of one good reason to admit that you got screwed by this amateur, just like we fell for bush and his rhetoric. They are ALL the same! The 2010 elections were supposed to halt the tide of socialism and TRILLION dollar spending, but boehner can’t find the courage to do a damn thing. They are ALL the same!

    • meteorlady

      I can’t say that I supported Bush on any of the war stuff. I also can’t say that I believe that Obama is correct in going into Libya because this is about oil AGAIN. The French and the British get 20% of their oil from Libya – does that tell you something? As for the UN, I live in a sovereign country and I object to the fact that any world government can tell my country what they must and must not do. You should to if you are a true American.

    • 45caliber

      I hadn’t thought about it … But the French seldom get involved in anything unless they are getting some profit or glory from it so you are probably right.

      It is like Iraq. The French tried to insist that they be the ones to rebuild Iraq … with our money of course. That way they get most of the money, the glory, and most of Iraq’s oil as well.

    • meteorlady

      The French and British get 20% of their oil from Libya. The French still owe us mega bucks for our help during WWII and have ignored this debt. They also did not support us during any other conflict for the UN that we entered. I say let them fight, we don’t need to be involved in a civil war on a sovereign country’s land.

        But, as a side note, we really do owe the French a debt of gratitude for helping defeat Cornwallis at Yorktown so that we’d be here now having this fine debate about an idiot who has no regard from whence we came. Now, back to our previously scheduled pummeling of our usurper.

    We have too many domestic problems to get involved in another middle east conflict of deminishing returns. Leave the “ragheads” to their misery and get things fixed at home. I think Obama was hoping to take attention away from the problems at home, by getting involved in Libya. The man is the worst president in history, and getting worse by the day, just when I did not think it was possible for him to become a worse loser than he already is.

    Obama bounced this thing around like a basketball—unable to decide whether to shoot for the basket or pass the ball. I feel he was more worried about his career, than he was for the people in Libya. Perhaps if he had decided earlier, there would have been time to run it by Congress. For those that think Obama is saving us—I see him as below the deck of our ship and driving holes in the hull faster than the republicans can plug them. It matters little who is at the helm in 2016. Unless we get the control of Obama’s steel rod, our ship will sink for sure. But mark my words—if a Republican is at the helm it will be reported as their fault. If Obama is president—somehow it will STILL be BUSH’S FAULT.

    There are probably a dozen countries in the world rules by dictators that could use help overthrowing the government but, oddly enough, everyone seems to think Libia should be targeted.

    I would think Saudi Arabia should be top on everyones list but we are told the freaks in power there are our “allies”.

    • Harold Olsen

      By Obama’s criteria (any dictator who oppresses his people) for going into Libya, Obama, himself, should taken out.

  • Bus

    Didn’t this winner of the Peace Prize advocate bringing such dictators into the conversation and reasoning with them? I guess reality has set in.

      As if those dictators would listen …

    whether Gadhafi is the leader or they find another, they’ll still hate us, so why are we assisting either side? we lost a $31.1 million jet this week. thank God the men inside made it home safely. if we the people rose up in rebellion, does anybody doubt obama would send the soldiers after us? and, if he did, how would he feel about libya sending jets over to bomb his troops?

    • 45caliber

      I think he’d TRY to send the soldiers after us. And immediately after trying, he would be begging France for a place to hide.

    bob wire, spoken like a true liberrial progressive dumbocrap. There will not be any jobs created until the “banking Reform Bill” is wiped off the pages. Beltway agency slubs decide who can have a loan, existing equipment can not be leverages to expand or start a business. Some thing that has been a chance for small private companie to get a start in creating any type of businesses. We yet don’t know what all the f–k ups in the No car bill are going to hit businesses, like the 105 billion that was hidden out. There is also another 2000 regulations that are going to hit the citizens, wheather an emplyee or employer. Some thing all dumbocrap liberial progressives never understand or can comprehend. Haven’t seen or heard any democraps discussing cutting the government employees benifits to the levels and costs of real world. The only jobs democraps create is by using taxpayers money and government jobs, never any private owned jobs. Democraps don’t beleive in any one getting paid for their worth, skills, and abilities, but that everyone who should be paid the same from day one at any position except the paper pushing s–t birds in the beltway. eddee, kar;yn, and you must have retired from government or been a envolved with government programs.

Eddie, kar;yn, and you must have retired from government or been a involved with government programs.”

    Well, that sure doesn’t describe me! or Eddie and Karolyn !

    I think that you pulled that out of the air!

    I command 65,per hour and my strongest man commands $20.00, tote and fetch $10.00. A good helper $15.00, an exceptional helper, 18.00

    There is no promise of 40 hour work week , no vacation, holiday days or sick days, no insurance, no pension, no 401 k plan.

    I’m busy, I’m doing quit well, it’s not about me i41 my enchanted friend, it’s for my fellow Americans that I ask!

    So I ask again!

    Where are the JOBS!

    It’s governments job to secure a climate to where commerce can flourish, protect American borders and interest.

    The GOP attempted to stop every piece of legislation the 111th congress offered up to address the issues of unemployment, telling all of us there were better ways to get the job done!

    Okay! GOP 112th congress , show us ! We are waiting for you’re plan.

    I hope it something besides giving money away to your friends, voting yourselves a nice raise and claim that we are broke!

      Oh, none of you believe in redistribution of the wealth? Great! I had you wrong … I think.

    the democrats love the muslims. wasn’t it bill clinton and wesley clark that bombed the serbs out of existence and saved the muslims under the guise of ethnic cleansing by the serbs. now barry is going to bomb some tent seamers into oblivion under the guise of human rights violations, then after a few days turn the operation over to whom? maybe he has wesley clark and colin powell doing his war planninjg. this administration is the biggest joke in history. you can’t blame barry he is just the talking head, they wind him up and he speaks with conviction that is if the teleprompter is facing him.

  • http://com i41

    Wesley Clark and Anus Powell both were slobbing idoits for Onumnutts, Clark since he has a bug eyed look of a tyroid problem democrat and Powell another affermative action supportedOnumnutts since he was classified a “black”. If these idoits are advizing, we will have another “war” screw up that will need to be settled later. As for bob wire, good for you my friend if you have been in business long enough to have enough money. But you talk like a union worker, with not a lot of skill at needing to operate a business, how is the insurance and witholding taxes working out for you workers? If these persos are employed on a scherduler you had better be supplying health insurance as well as workman comp., which should be going thru the roof, my comments about you progressive liberial rants about heads of business getting more pay and pay ought to be equal as was stated several month by all 3 of you. If you are getting $65 a hr, my guess your crew is not getting equal pay, 6 1/2 times the fetcher pretty big spread for a gofer. If you don’t think I know what the hell I’m talking about, I was going to schedule a person to work 5 hours for every Sat., if any federal momey on the projest is used you have to pay the costs. You soon will find out how expensive the democraps were on killing jobs for a long time. First on the Nocare bill and the Banking reform bill, even if you are a contract worker it all took effect on Jan 1. Or are you one of these dems who are always wanting someone else to pay the freight costs costs. I have done contract work with my own crew and let the prime take care of insurance and other frking paper work costs.

    Soros: Right to ‘penetrate nation-states’ borders’

    Soros himself outlined the fundamentals of Responsibility to Protect in a 2004 Foreign Policy magazine article entitled “The People’s Sovereignty: How a New Twist on an Old Idea Can Protect the World’s Most Vulnerable Populations.”

    In the article, Soros said “true sovereignty belongs to the people, who in turn delegate it to their governments.”

    “If governments abuse the authority entrusted to them and citizens have no opportunity to correct such abuses, outside interference is justified,” Soros wrote. “By specifying that sovereignty is based on the people, the international community can penetrate nation-states’ borders to protect the rights of citizens.

    “In particular, the principle of the people’s sovereignty can help solve two modern challenges: the obstacles to delivering aid effectively to sovereign states, and the obstacles to global collective action dealing with states experiencing internal conflict.”

    Evans sits on multiple boards with Soros, including the Clinton Global Initiative.

    Soros is on the executive board of the International Crisis Group, a “crisis management organization” for which Evans serves as president-emeritus.

      Good soros link. Funny how this devil can talk about sovereignty, but not in the context of the United States…only where we are supposed to get our nose in some other nations business. soros has his nose well up inside out business, and should be on the wall at the Post Office as enemy No. 1. I’m still amazed at the sheer numbers of people who have no idea of who this one-world demagogue actually is in the bigger scheme of things.

    Why western nations so much proactive in attacking against muslims while no actions against Israel who has forced out millions of palestinians from their homes and mercilessly killed ten of thousands of palestinians and why no action against India who is occupying Muslim State of Kashmir by brutal use of 0.6 Millions Hindu millitary perssonels.

    • CurtisS

      Javed… you ask why? Like so many people here say “follow the money” except in this case it’s follow the religion. It’s all about god/jesus vs allah. This century is going to be about religion and there will be wars fought and people will die in the name of their god. Such a tragic

        ??? Such a tragic waste of lives.

    This is a sovereign country engaged in a CIVIL WAR. It’s none of our business and would not be if there were not the New World Order and the UN. How can he just commit us without senate approval? It’s wrong and we need to get out of there and stay out of there.

    I`m kind of changing the subject soeme what. This is to all our good
    and bad Republican Congressmen. We as citizens, are willing to fight the good fight. My question to you Mr Congressmen, ARE YOU? If your not and the fight is to tough for you,I ask you to resign your
    position at once.We need to replace you with some one willing to fight
    to the very end,every minute, every hour, every day,every week and so on down the line. In other words, if you can`t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen and also that means you Mr Speaker.There were 54
    brave Congressmen, who had the guts to stand up and be accounted for
    and say no more deals and no more exstetions on the budget. We sent
    the new members to help you old farts get something done and this is
    how we are repaid NO MORE!!!!!

    If this is a struggle for democracy; which I’m not sure it is frankly–then caution is indeed the watch word. Obviously this is mostly people who are tired of being repressed by a brutal, vicious, dictatorial thug; and after 40+ years of him who can blame them? Quite possibly too this is an attempt by some jihadists to take over Libya (and all other Muslim countries to re-form their caliphate) as well. Do we really know what is going on? The no-fly zone is appropriate for starters; and we should have jumped in awhile back when Moammar was on the ropes. He’d be in exile now or dead had we done so; so indeed Obama screwed up royally in that regard at the very least. But, let’s remember something folks: this is the MOST Godless and democracy HATING president we have ever had. He doesn’t believe in a Christian-God at all; that is a total whitewash for the media in the U.S. to ‘accept’ him as a candidate for office years ago and part of a strategic plan by his advisers. He also obviously despises democracy as EVERYTHING he has done to date is a direct affront to democratic principles. He RULES, does as he pleases, tries his best to advance socialistic and even communistic principles along the way, etc. Is it a coincidence that he is PRAISED by people like Farrakhan, Gaddhafi, Chavez, and the likes of Rev. Wright?? No, it is not. Obama would no longer ‘fight’ for democracy than he would sit down with a KKK group to discuss race relations. haha He’s trying hard to ‘straddle’ the line between the left and right in order to boost his chances for reelection and NOTHING else will matter for the next 18 months in America for him. Let’s not fool ourselves into believing that this person has any love for, or concern for Americans, Libyans or any other people who just want to live in peace and be free from dictators and authoritarians who wish to TELL us what to do with our lives, our health, our money, etc. Obama’s methods are the same as all tyrants–except he is not resorting to blood shed because that will not play well in America–for now at least. But, if he stirs up enough chaos then sooner or later people will take to the streets and turn to violence; then he can sit back and unleash the dogs of war and a police state and our entire way of life will be flushed right down the tubes along with it. At least people recognize Ghaddafi for what he is; Obama is still hiding in the closet but little by little the ‘real’ Obama is revealing himself slowly. I fear him more than I do all the dictators around the world together.

  • mark

    I voted and campaigned for Obama! I am upset that he got us deeper into Afghanstan and now Lybia. He has become a lap dog for the military. He is just as bad as Bush. Maybe the Miltary runs this Country instead of the Pres and Congress. I thought you had to get a declartion of War to bomb other countries!
