The video shows who got him and I did not see obama's face in the crowd...same applies for bin laden. Give credit where credit is due to those who actually were there.

His skin was so white I was'nt sure if it was Gadhafi or a French mime. Hey Mr. Bill, did Obama shoot Gadhafi with the same gun he got Osama with?

Don't be silly, people!

A strong President sets the tone for world events to unfold. Under Barack Obama's strong leadership, bin Laden was killed, Gadhafi had been disposed of, and plenty of America hating terrorists are no longer a threat to all of us.

Indeed, give credit where credit is due. If Ronald Reagan deserves credit for the fall of Communism, Barack H Obama deserves credit for scaling down the threat of militant Islam in the world.

So Obama gets yet another foreign policy victory. Notice how the GOPasaurs are all downplaying it.

Attention Poop Pooper!!! Ronald Reagan was not an arrogant man or did he expect any accolades for doing what was right.
And speaking of communists, b. h. obama is a communist. What else could he be in order to launch his political career from the home of the communist bill ayers? Either you people are so politically inept or just incapable of understanding the serious of the matter of ayers/obama. Both ayers and his wife belong in jail and not involved in US Politics or ever involved with the POTUS…ayers and obama would run America like gadhafi if they could. Obviously everything obama does is flavored with communism and it flies right over your head, either that or you are one.

There is no film, no video of Ayers with Obama. It is a tea party urban legend.

That's why nobody cares about this straw man of yours.

Just heard an interview on LinkTV with a NATO rep who traveled to the site and talked to those that live nearby. Apparently, Gaddafi was alive and reasonably unvbloodied when the rebels found him. They quickly beat him to a pulp and fights even broke out between two rebel groups over who would 'keep him' some more. At one point, he was put on the hood of a truck to escape the melee.....but he fell off the truck as it was speeding away.(Doh!) Also, of course, at some point he received two gunshots to his legs. Effectively getting 'kneecapped' before being beaten to death. Funny, he *said* he would fight until the very end. Yet, at some point during those last 20 (or 40)(or 60) minutes...he seems to have taken a distinctly different tack. Of course, when you no longer have other people getting bloody for you...it may change your outlook on the matter.

"Obama was a director of the Woods Fund board from 1999 to Dec. 11, 2002, according to the Fund's website. According to tax filings, Obama received compensation of $6,000 per year for his service in 1999 and 2001.

Obama served on the Wood's Fund board alongside William C. Ayers, a member of the Weathermen terrorist group which sought to overthrow of the U.S. government and took responsibility for bombing the U.S. Capitol in 1971"
. There's tons of material all about it if you aren't blind enough not to look.

Are these barbarians the people that the west is counting on to establish democracy in Libya? If so, the west may be in for an awful shock.

I'm glad Gaddafi is gone, but he should have been put on trial for his many crimes and sentenced to prison. That would be the civilized way to deal with him. Unfortunately the barbaric way won out. And now the barbarians will be running the country. What will happen to the next unpopular political leader? Does anyone really think the people who beat Gaddafi to death are willing to sit down and discuss their issues reasonably in a political campaign, and then vote on these issues in an election? Dream on.

Big deal.

Did you ever serve on a board? It's about as meaningful as riding on the same bus with an assortment of people..

BTW, who cares about "tons of material" as well?

Transcripts of teabag radio shows, teabag blogs, teabag websites add up to tons of dung. It might impress Teabag Nation, but they hate President Obama anyway.

No, he strangled him with an internet cord that Al Gore invented.

You are another ass. You support fools who do nothing but loot the US Treasury; and mock those who really get it done. Wake up.

I'm just suggesting that you look for yourself. I'm sure you will find something that satifies even your most dicriminating taste. At least I don't use perverted sexual overtones as you do. i.e. "Teabag". No-one hates president Obama, but call a spade a spade. Van Jones is a communist. He is good friends with Obama. What is your problem?

LOL!!! Give yourself more credit. You know good and well the term "teabagger" was adopted by tea party participants themselves.

That sounds like a self-delusional lie to me. It's ridiculous. The fact that you used the term again only re-enforces your obvious ignorance and faulty upbringing to all who read your words. I hope you don't kiss your mother with that mouth.

President Obama has finished Raygun's missed opportunity by killing Gadhafi the wealthiest terrorist in the world!

Obama's support of terrorists in Libya has accomplished nothing but giving Benghazi to al Qaeda and getting our Ambassador and three others killed and raped by Islam's finest, who Obama has strengthened elsewhere in the Middle East also. Obama has also made it much more difficult to ever negotiate with our enemies in the future; because of Obama disregarding the bountiful negotiations with Gaddafi, others will never believe the United States a nation capable of standing by its word. This is exactly what Obama wants, because those he supports and has supported ever since being indoctrinated in the Communist ideal as a youth want a world in which the US is diminished in any and all respect.
