Is Barack Obama trying to become a wartime GWB President?
One had to wonder what the far LEFT’s reaction would be to their President becoming a military initiating President. Barack Obama was the same person who as a candidate stated he would get the US out of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now Obama has implicated the US in a new military action in Libya. Is the LEFT going to call this Obama’s war for oil?
Pic Hat Tip: AWD
It did not take long after the 100′s of tomahawk missiles were shot into Libya for anti-war film maker and Leftist Michael Moore to rip Obama a new one. As reported at The Hill, Moore unleashed a string on tweets comparing the U.S. military’s mission in Libya to Iraq and Afghanistan. Don Suber has much more reaction of the LEFT of Obama’s imperialism and illegal war.
It’s only cause we’re defending the Libyan people from a tyrant! That’s why we bombed the Saudis last wk! Hahaha. Pentagon=comedy
And we always follow the French’s lead! Next thing you know, we’ll have free health care & free college! Yay war!
We’ve had a “no-fly zone” over Afghanistan for over 9 yrs. How’s that going? #WINNING !
Khadaffymust’ve planned 9/11! #excuses
Khadaffymust’ve had WMD! #excusesthatwork
Khadaffymust’ve threatened to kill somebody’s daddy! #daddywantedjeb
I will give Michael Moore credit, where credit is due … at least Moore is not being a hypocrit. Did I just say that? Moore’ss tirade against Obama and also stating that Obama should return his 2009 Nobel Peace prize.
From the Right Wing News, a great post dripping with sarcasm about the anti-war LEFT, ‘White House Anti-War Protesters Get To Watch Launch Of Obama’s War From Jail’. Nice.
As many have noted, Obama launched his adventurous, unnecessary, and possibly illegal war of aggression in order to steal Libya’s oil without Congressional approval* on the same date as Operation Iraqi Freedom started. And Obama wasn’t even at the White House. He was partying in Brazil. Of course, they want him to “Go home.” Though Obama is bummed that he missed Carnival.
Over at the HUFFPO, they state that Anti-American Extremists Among Libyan Rebels U.S. Has Vowed To Protect. Hmm, wouldn’t that mean that the LEFT would be in support of these folks? Talk about a confused message.
Not to be outdone, Louis Farrakhan tears Barack Obama a new one, “Who The Hell Do You Think You Are?” and questions Obama for calling for Qaddafi to step down. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE. Does this mean that Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan no longer considers Barack Hussein Obama a Messiah? It was just 2008 that Louis Farrakhan called Obama a Messiah.
FARRAKHAN: “I warn my brother do you let these wicked demons move you in a direction that will absolutely ruin your future with your people in Africa and throughout the world…Why don’t you organize a group of respected Americans and ask for a meeting with Qaddafi, you can’t order him to step down and get out, who the hell do you think you are?
EXIT QUESTION: Why the 180 degree flip by Obama on the military action against Libya? Obama claims it will be a quick war, not lead by the US, not to oust Qaddafi but to only protect citizens and the US will not commit boot on the ground. Isn’t this really more about Obama trying to not look like a military wimp in foreign policy than it is the “no fly zone”?
UPDATE I: More from the Politico, Liberal Democrats livid over air strikes against Libya, questioning Constitutionality. Libs in Obama’s own party are questioning the constitutionality of the president’s actions as US tomahawk missile are fired on Libya. Far Left US Rep. Dennis Kucinich (OH) even asked why these air strikes are not an impeachable offense. How will Obama’s actions affect him with his far left liberal base? Could such a military action provide a future Democrat primary challenge in 2012? Nancy Pelosi, Democrat House Minority Leader, did not take part in the Caucus call. Is there trouble in Democrat paradise, and a civil war brewing?
Reps. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), Donna Edwards (Md.), Mike Capuano (Mass.), Dennis Kucinich (Ohio), Maxine Waters (Calif.), Rob Andrews (N.J.), Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas), Barbara Lee (Calif.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.C.) “all strongly raised objections to the constitutionality of the president’s actions” during that call, said two Democratic lawmakers who took part.
Kucinich, who wanted to bring impeachment articles against both former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney over Iraq — only to be blocked by his own leadership — asked why the U.S. missile strikes aren’t impeachable offenses.
