Obama hails death of Muammar Gaddafi as foreign policy success (guardian)

Obama hails death of Muammar Gaddafi as foreign policy success | World news | guardian.co.uk.

This coming from the recipient of a Nobel peace price…

Like I’ve said many times, Obama is no better than Bush in any way. He’ll fight the same wars and threaten the same people.

60+% of US voters really did fall for that charlatan’s smoke and mirrors roadshow.

House rebukes Obama on Libya, but lets funding continue – Washington Times

House rebukes Obama on Libya, but lets funding continue – Washington Times.

Once again, I saw this one coming from a mile away. There’s a certain way things in DC work, and not messing with the figurehead’s wars is a part of that.

Chief eunuch of Obama the nitwit in this case is Kucinich. I knew this effort was definitely intended to fail when I saw that lame mallard head up the effort.

So, just for fun, a few more predictions:

  • The GOP will cave in, the debt ceiling will be raised, as high as the Fed demands it be.
  • Spending will continue unabated.
  • Kucinich, the Pauls & Co. will remain the sideshow they’ve always been.
  • Palin will at the most follow in Hillary’s footsteps. No Presidency for her.

And just to cheese off a few more people, I’m gonna quote a rock star: Don’t believe the truth!

Exclusive: Obama authorizes secret support for Libya rebels | Reuters

Members of Congress have expressed anxiety about U.S. government activities in Libya. Some have recalled that weapons provided by the U.S. and Saudis to mujahedeen fighting Soviet occupation forces in Afghanistan in the 1980s later ended up in the hands of anti-American militants.

Funny how they buried that at the end of that article. But even so they left out the most important effect of that action in the 1980s: UBL and al Qaida. And aside from the fact that our former friends could again become our current friends, are we spawning the next AQ here?

Obama: No U.S. Forces on the Ground in Libya… Except For Those Guys. (NRO)

Obama: No U.S. Forces on the Ground in Libya… Except For Those Guys. – By Jim Geraghty – The Campaign Spot – National Review Online.

So much for “just kinetic action” or whatever nonsense the White House has been spreading. There are troops on the ground and Libya is starting to look like Obama’s war, like it or not.

White House: Libya fight is not war, it’s ‘kinetic military action’

White House: Libya fight is not war, it’s ‘kinetic military action’ | Byron York | Beltway Confidential | Washington Examiner.

They have to call it that, because Mr. “hope and change” couldn’t possibly start a war. Let’s see how long we actually stay around and in Libya.

How’s this for an about face. It’s Kerry’s “I was for the war before I was against it” all over again.

So see, lemmings, this is what we mean when we talk about DC’s corporatist party with two wings. They will all do what is expedient to their paymasters. Considering our taxes don’t really pay for much anymore, it really is those who donate terms of office to their friends in Washington who call the shots. So any President will favor regime change, tax hikes, bailouts or more creative ways of disowning you of your property.
