Mr. Hussein Obama has referred to this action as a humanitarian one but, all joking aside, we know that humanitarianism is the farthest thing from his mind when ordering these strikes. King Obama needs to have his wings trimmed back to a Presidential length.

Why would Mr. Obama submit his plans to this congress? The majority leaders have stated that it is their intention that the congress should block Mr. Obama from accomplishing anything at all. surely that would mean that they would block anything that he proposed to them in this matter and, therefore, further the regime of Mr. Qaddafi, who, apparently, they are not interested in blocking. Under these circumstances, where the Republican congress in effectively on the side of the mad dictator, it would be folly to attempt to persuade them.

So what is wrong with a responsible Congress protecting America from a King Obama? You need to re-take your HS Civics class.

As I recall, then candidate Obama stated that regime change was not good foreign policy and not in America's best interest. Why is this regime change better than the one he opposed in Iraq. If regime change is and acceptable foreign policy, why are we not terminating the regimes in Iraq, North Korea, Ruwanda, Ivory Coast and a myriad of other countries in Asia and Africa? Why not Venezuela or Cuba.

Personally, I beleive that if we are going to change a regime we had better 1) do the darn job quickly and 2) make sure that the new regime is not worse than the old, both for US interests and for the citizens of the country we are changing.

I did. We had to memorize all of the cabinet members. Then Kennedy was elected and we had to memorize the new ones. If you have a bunch of Republicans who don't understand how the government is supposed to work and they are simply deliberately undermining everything that Mr. Obama has attempted to accomplish they might reasonably be seen as enemies of the republic.

Agreed. Obama talks out of many sides of his mouth. I viewed an interview on PBS News Hour recently where former National Security Adviser Allen Scowcroft asked why Obama's claim of humanitarian intervention in Libya hasn't been applied in Sudan, Somalia, Congo or elsewhere. This Libya event is a power play and Obama's claim to humanitarianism is pure hooey.

Not at all. It was thought that kids ought to be in possession of some basic facts about the administrations that they lived with. It was pretty light on what we were supposed to think, it was long on having an understanding of how things were supposed to work. Ideology was considered boorish and the cold war was melting. Construction companies would give you ten years to pay for your fallout shelter so we all thought things were improving.

Had they attempted to squeeze some republicrat stuff into my soft little head I would have remembered because I don't buy any of that.

You should drop that brain washing talk. There is no such thing. Never was, it was just cold war propaganda that was supposed to make you afraid of those brilliant and sneaky communists. It's horse hockey.

Isn't it amazing how similar Obama and Bush really are? We got involved with 2 wars in the Mid East with Bush and Obama did the same. Bush gave us a prescription drug plan that was unfunded so Obama gave us Obamacare. Bush bailed out auto companies, Obama upped the ante. Bush gave us TARP, Obama gave us TARP II and "The Stimilus". Bush exploded the deficit, Obama exploded it more. Bush gaves us Paulson, Obama gave us Geithner.

The truth is that we only changed skin color. &#65279;

Nope. Nobody tried it. I was actually in a gifted program intended to develop free thinking. I think it was cancelled when the school board decided they didn't like free thinkers very much.
