This is really quite remarkable. Obama has taken us to war in Libya (woops – Kinetic Military Action) and we don’t even know who we’re fighting for. And now it turns out that the people we are fighting for have a positive relationship with Al Qaeda, at the very least!
Obama took us to war without knowing who we are fighting for. << ADDENDUM 3/31/11: NOW that we’ve spent around a billion dollars and are committed, Obama’s administration is investigating to find out who we’re helping. Now that’s incompetence in action, there! >>
Or, do you suppose it is possible he did know? After all, he has bowed to every foreign leader he could find, something no U.S. citizen should ever do. Show respect, yes. Bow? Never. Every U.S. citizen is just as sovereign as any foreign king.
On a tangentially related subject, consider the fact that Obama was at first against getting involved in Libya, but then changed his mind immediately after the U.N. passed a resolution authorizing the no-fly zone. It looks like he needed their permission to act. Where’s the leadership?
At what point do we consider this a treasonous act? Obama swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States, an oath he has broken a number of times. He is breaking it now, in his Kinetic Military Action war in Libya without congressional approval.
And there is nothing in the Constitution that allows the president to give up the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N. or any other entity, even if he is inclined to do so.
This President demonstrates some – disturbing – tendencies.
P.S. Not directly related, but have you noticed this administration’s tendency to never name something what it obviously is? The best name you could put on this tendency is “spin”. They really do think the citizens of this country are stupid, don’t they? They need to wise up.
I’ve lived with advertising spin since I was a child. I remember when “used cars” turned into “pre-owned vehicles”. I’ve been decoding spin since I was a child, and Obama’s administration is not likely to fool me – or you either, I’d bet. It might have worked in the ’50’s, but these days, not so much. But the point is, they are trying to deceive us with every statement they make.
Free advise to Obama and any other politician: Tell it like it is. Because, when you don’t, we know you aren’t honest.
Come to think of it, that’s one reason I like Sarah Palin; she does simply tell it like it is. I’ve never seen her obfuscate anything.
