The military action is Libya is creating nonstop headlines. The general consensus seems to be that it was the right move. Qadhafi was slaughtering his own people, and the US lead by France and other NATO countries stepped in to stop the slaughter.
In a recent speech President Obama also called for the Libyan leader to step down or be removed.
Republicans like the action that has been taken, but from all corners of the talkosphere from Bill O’Reilly to John McCain, the talking points memo seems to be that Obama was three weeks late in taking his correct action, and that the US should have been the leader and not the follower.
It would be my guess that when people voted for Obama it was because we were tired of trigger happy George W. Bush Republicans that never saw a war they didn’t like. Military intervention is a serious business where people die. I think it is worth three weeks deliberation. In an alternate universe, the situation may have resolved itself in that same time period without the US intervention, but then how would the Republicans criticize Obama? Oh, they’ll say it is because he is lazy and disengaged. Hmmm, seems like an age old criticism of African Americans. So right-wingnuts; if all else fails, go racist.
