The administration’s Random Foreign Policy Generator is getting a workout lately when it comes to Libya.
[Spins dial. Lands on “Do nothing”] Yea! That was easy.
[Problem doesn’t go away. Spins again: “Furrow brow and talk tough”] OK, that doesn’t sound so bad. Where’s my teleprompter?
[Problem still doesn’t go away. People complaining. Spins again: “Launch bombs”] Well, that’s the opposite approach of what I’ve aggressively preached about for the last decade, but whatever. As long as I can get back to golfing, being entertained and watching the NCAA tournament.
[Repeat . . .]
1. From the Bumbling Genius, Relax, It’s OK, Obama Is A Democrat
If anyone is having difficulty reconciling the war-is-not-the-answer’s dream president with Obama’s war and his American bombs falling in Libya; don’t feel alone. The only thing I can come up with as to how this could be is that he is trustworthy to do such things because he is a Democrat because he is an intrinsically good person. So, being a Democrat, we can trust his bombs will never kill Libyan children with flying shrapnel; or make Muslims want to blow American infidels up indiscriminately. But even if such horrors do happen don’t worry, the media will make sure you don’t hear about it; and that’s the same as it not happening.
2. With Libya, the Left’s Anti-War Hypocrisy is Complete – the title says it all.
Bush was just plain silly in not going to the Congress, getting a resolution, not going to the United Nations, getting resolution 1441 (after 16 other UN resolutions), not laying out the rationale for military action in Iraq in speeches over long months, including the State of the Union, and not putting a coalition of over 40 nations together, not to mention not giving Saddam numerous chances to work with the weapons inspectors.
And we have this beautiful piece of self-parody by Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie, Why I Can Support The Strikes Against Libya As A Christian: “The United Nations, not a U.S.-led coalition under cover of a UN mandate . . .” Oh, well since it is led by the UN and not just under their mandate then that changes everything. And you know Currie would have had the exact same views had it been President Bush in office.
Note to Liberals: Consistency — You’re doin’ it wrong.
