Obama's Libya Speech Crashes and Burns
We finally know what Barack Obama meant when he kept talking about “shovel ready” projects. It wasn’t to boost our sagging economy and shrinking labor force. Nah. By shovel ready, Barack meant unloading a pile of manure into our faces while telling us it’s cookie dough ice cream, of the homemade variety.
Forget for a moment that Obama premised action in Libya on the fulcrum that “the United States of America has played a unique role as an anchor of global security and advocate for human freedom,” which pretty much validates George W. Bush’s Iraq policy, the same policy that state Sen. Obama called a “dumb war” and that he frenetically played up in order to create early separation between him and Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primaries. Yeah, disregard that for now.
Obama’s entire speech last night was aimless, peppered with contradictions, and left us wondering, “Hmm. It’s still not clear why we’re bombing the snot out of Libya.”
