    I have a feeling people are still waiting to see how far it's going to go.

I strongly support the rebels and their mission to depose Daffy -- perhaps there was another way. Well. There was. But we don't do political assassinations.

    Edit: Haven't seen DonaldSutherland. I wonder how he'd weigh in on what's happening...
    Think it might have something to do with the fact that he was 100% wrong on this subject?

    There were protestors in the street before we sent troops into Afghanistan. They didn't wait to see how far it was going to go.

    I think it will be a sad day for the Leftists to discover that the war protests had more to do with who was president than they did about the war.

    Wanna know the funny part?

    The day we launched the airstrikes in Libya, the anti-war dorks were protesting the invasion of Iraq.

    So far, this isn't equal to Iraq. Stopping the civilian killing is different than invading on a pretext. Now, if he means to install a democracy, he's making a similar mistake to what Bush made in Iraq. We do have to see where this goes.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Well considering a lot of "leftists" have criticized Obama for this move - I doubt that.

    I'm not sure being silly adds much here, but I guess if that's all you got.
