    More like hundreds or thousands. In all fairness to Obama he was ushered into running by his super rich libtard puppeteers. He was in over his head from the start, he had absoloutely no background remotely qualifying him to be a successful President.
    The first indication that he was a total smuck was the marxist, socialist ultra left he surrounded himself with...he had zero chance to be successful

    Re: Obama' libyan coalition Falls apart

    actively progressive senator sherrod brown of ohio, today:

    JOHN BOEHNER IS RIGHT---HIS QUESTIONS MUST BE ANSWERED

    RealClearPolitics - Video - Dem Senator: Boehner Is "Right," Obama Needs To Talk To Congress

    what else could sherrod say?

    boehner's "scathing" letter to the president simply wants to know:

    1. is gadaffi a target or not

    2. which nations will lead

    3. what are the lines of authority and responsibility

    4. are there to be land based targets

    5. if coalition partners quit, how is america's role effected

    6. when are we gonna turn over control

    7. if gadaffi survives, how long will we continue doing whatever it is we're doing

    8. what's our relationship with the opposition, what standards must they meet

    9. what's it all gonna cost, what's the payfor

    10. how does whatever it is we're doing over there fit in with our broader mideast policies

    sherrod brown of ohio says BOEHNER IS RIGHT

    do YOU think the orange dude is outta line?

    or does the president indeed have THAT MUCH explaining to do?

    about this MILITARY INTERVENTION?

    it's a SERIOUS business, war is

    Sorry, Prof. Senator Sherrod Brown once checked out The Blaze on line and listened to Rush Limbaugh in a rental car last year. Not to be trusted.

    I'm glad you like that, but while I agree, those are nice questions to have answers to, I do have these few consolations:

    1) This is a world wide agenda with UN approval
    2) This is sanctioned by the Arab League
    3) The people of the country actually want our support
    4) We have been told that there won't be ground troops
    5) Because it is a UN resolution, many nations are stepping up. It is not just our missiles and we can not be left holding the check by ourselves.
    6) We stopped a march that would have almost certainly resulted in a genocide.

    I am happy with all of these things. We waited for approval from the world before we helped intervene. How about it? The United States of America actually having a foreign policy that isn't "if you don't like it then you are the enemy".

    Yes, the more questions that are answered the better, but I am happy with the ones that have been answered so far. But you won't hear those things on Rush, sweetheart.

    Re: Obama' libyan coalition Falls apart

    you probably don't know 19 term congressman george miller from martinez

    but as a lifelong resident of the bay area, i sure do

    around here he's been known for most of his career, like the rest of the bay area delegation, as pretty much a pelosi clone

    woolsey and miller and stark and speier are very, very close

    Many are sorry, but what makes matters worse is that his Secretary of State is no more experienced than he.

    While they might have made a good novelty act in peacetime, neither were designed to serve in times of genuine crisis.

    I don't listen to Rush Limbaugh, if your last line was trying to say that's where my thoughts come from. Glenn Beck either. If you hadn't called me Sweetheart, I prolly wouldn't have responded. But I'm a sucker for flattery.

    I don't disagree with much in your list. However, I believe that President Obama should have brought his case to Congress.

    Further, I think this is an issue long in need of resolution: Does the President of the United States have the right, sans Congressional approval, to commit our military without our country, or one of our allies, being in imminent danger ?

    It always works.

    I am neutral about this currently, but I can see the issue you take with him not taking it to Congress first.

    That does appear to be the golden question, doesn't it? I don't see why all countries don't just have a permenant military group that is dedicated to the UN so that any UN resolutions passed can be enforced without having each country needing to debate internally first. Also, if countries can just opt out even when a vote is passed, what is the point of it all?
