President Barack Obama hosted 18 senior lawmakers at the White House on Friday afternoon to "consult" with them about the new plan to intervene in Libya , exactly 90 minutes before Obama announced that plan to the world and one day after his administration successfully pushed for authorization of military force at the United Nations.

All Obamas indecisiveness ,Waffling,insecurity,timidly,b rings me back to a great contrast with Pres.Ronald Regan .

The United States bombing of Libya (code-named Operation El Dorado Canyon) comprised the joint United States Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps air-strikes against Libya on April 15, 1986. The attack was carried out in response to the 1986 Berlin discotheque bombing.

The attacks failed to kill Gaddafi. Forewarned by a telephone call from Malta's Prime Minister, Karmenu Mifsud Bonnici, that unauthorized aircraft were flying over Maltese airspace heading south towards Tripoli, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and his family rushed out of their residence in the Bab al-Azizia compound moments before the bombs dropped.However one of his adopted daughters was killed!

It scared the Shit out of him,he feared Reagan,..OBAMA??? They think his father was a camel herd boy ,and is laughafable1!..A Wimp!...Look at todays news ,? I think Qaddafi is correct...Reminds him of CARTER,and he laughs!!

Why don't you go?

Your defense of Reagan is laughable.

Reagan is personally responsible for the unnecessary deaths of US aviators from the JFK who were killed whle bombing Lebanon in December 1983; when Reagan decided to "send a message" after the barracks bombing.

He insisted the sories be flown "right now" rather than leaving the details to the commanders on site. His idiocy caused our airplanes to make an approach at low altitude, in broad daylight, resulting in them becoming targets. Allowing 12 hours for nightfall was not an option in you and Reagan's moronic "right now" type of thinking.

Wake up.

I can accept Ronald Reagan as one of America's GREATEST PRESIDENTS in terms of indebting the American people. He was also the greatest, by far, in pulling the wool over the great number of Americans' eyes as he did.

BTW, Poor Ron was already a puppet, a wooden head, as Governor of California; only surpassed by GW Bush and Rutherford Hays as an American disaster.

Hey, liberals, how do you feel about the President being a warmonger?

Wow, must get under your skin knowing the guy who was supposed to close Gitmo hasn't and who was supposed to pull out troops hasn't.

This is strong and brilliant leadership on display as President Obama put together an alliance with the authority of a strong U.N. resolution that will cripple Kaddafi and bring a successful outcome for the people of Libya and our interest as well.

First Cairo and now Libya; if only we had this kind of leadership over the previous 8 years when this nation was being devastated by that idiot Bush.

First tip...learn how to spell your enemy's name. Just because Bush was an idiot doesn't mean Obama isn't even a bigger one. Obama is just following Bush's lead, actually. And Obama isn't running anything. He's just another phantom puppet parachuted in from the far left. I suspect that's where Bush originally came from too as time goes by. Whoever it is, they sure like them dumb, don't they? Neither Bush nor Obama has had this country's best interest in mind. No Way Jose. Fugget about it. No Sirrree Bob. Something stinks in Denmark.

Yawn uif you must; but if President Obama had followed President Clinton; the defecit would be gone; and the National Debt shrinking.

You can like it or not; but most of our defecit spending is to recover from the excesses of the Bush administration.

However, Obama's acceptance of the "Bush tax cut for Millionaires" even at the brinkmanship of the GOP senate continuous filibuster; makes this folly parially his.

Yes. Were I Obama I would have permenantly closed all Federal facilities offices, and bases in those states whose Senators were filibustering.
I will grant that Obama doesn't know from real political hardball.

Funny, how your amoebean verse has a special lilt when you think about dick.
