Quote Of The Week

"Obviously that involves kinetic military action, particularly on the front end."

Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Adviser

This is what the action in Libya is called, a kinetic military action, not a war.

Anyone wonder why Obama is seen as a strong and decisive military leader by 17% of people polled?

Biden threatened to impeach Bush in '08 if he attacked Iran without Congressional consent...

Thus, this strike cannot be called a war.

Brooke, actually it's a kinetic military action

You know, Chuck..I think the Republicans would get a LOT more respect if they'd SPEAK UP.
Boehner asked for details and there's going to be a private meeting this Wednesday, I believe I heard? Can this Obama think without a teleprompter? Why private? I know there are some things we can't know, but....(and didn't you feel more comfortable with Bush knowing things we can't know more than OBAMA?)
THis is a mess...kinetic or not. (what a joke that is, you're right)
Sad thing is that people will still probably vote for MR HAND-OUTS over any Republican

Z, I agree completely on the GOP. They need to say soemthing

Wait till the rebels fail to take over and Gaddafi remains in power, it'll be amazing just watching all the weaseling and verbal squirming obama will give you to run from Libya. He hasn't got the stomach for a real war, just too bad he didn't have the balls to just admit it in the first place.
