WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama says Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi must leave the country now.
Obama made the comments to German Chancellor Angela Merkel in a private telephone conversation Saturday as they discussed the violence in Libya. The White House says Obama told Merkel that when a leaders only means of holding power is to use violence against his people, then he has lost the legitimacy to rule and needs to do whats right for his country by leaving now.
The comments mark the first time that Obama has called on Gadhafi to step down.

Personally, I think Old Moammar might be telling the truth about his rivals.
Zero should heed his own advice.....
You know, Qadaffi’s heard it all, from Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, and Bush. I’m betting he doesn’t care that much about what Barry-O says.
It's so hard to be a Leftist despot in America dontcha know?
But four more years of socialist tyranny is becoming more and more necessary to finish the US—oops,I mean finish the job of hope and change in the US...
Time for Barrack Hussein Osama Obama to leave. Now.
Now if the Libyan Dictator (however you want to spell his name) leaves, the Liberal Media will credit the Liberal Messiah with liberating Libya. That’s why the Liberal Messiah made this statement.
I thought Obama said the reason America was always in trouble over there was because we keep butting in and that he wouldn’t. Seems Obama LIED.
The White House says Obama told Merkel that when a leaders only means of holding power is to use violence against his people, then he has lost the legitimacy to rule and needs to do whats right for his country by leaving now.
You mean like having the Union hold the American people and economy hostage until he gets his way? It kinda sound a little too similar for my liking.
I suppose Obama is going to go over there and tell him that in person?
President Obama: Step down from the Presidency. Now.
Before it's too late for our republic.
As if an Obama decree is going make the likes of Gadhafi take notice...
I am so ashamed of my country's "leadership."
The difference is the rest of them had the courage to tell him directly.
Hussein is the last Western “leader” (I use the word leader for Hussein with tongue firmly in cheek) to speak out on Libya.
Now, Hussein pretends to be taking a stand.
What a joke.
Did Hussein ask for the American taxpayer’s $400,000 back?
I have the perfect solution . Send obama to Libya to replace Gadhafi permanently.
When Obama finally does the right thing, as in calling on Quadafi to leave, I think he should be supported.
But he didn’t actually say these things to Qua-daffy, right? Pathetic.
I suppose Obama is going to go over there and tell him that in person?
Gadhafi would eat him live. It would take 30 seconds and we’d have another Holiday in the US.
Do you have that link off hand about that $400,000? I am lazy right now to look for it. :?)
Odumbo is trying to tell Qaddaffi to leave. Okay Odumbo what are going to do about the $400,000.00 of taxpayers that you gave to Qaddaffi’s daughter and son for the Gaza flotilla. Okay Odumbo come on fess up how much did you give to Mubarak in Egypt, how about Abbas in Palestine, how much to Ahmadinejad in Iran. what about Yemen, Somali, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco. There seems to be a pattern here
Okay lets look at the Shia Muslim religion based primarily in Iran (90% and Iraq and snaller amounts throughout all the arab countries) Iran has established a network of organizations through Ahmadinejad: in the following countries Bahrain, Kuwait, saudi arabia, Pakistan and Yemen and established contact with certain Sunni fundamentalist gropups in Saudi arabia, Turkey, Egypt, algeria and Morocco..
In the madrassa muslim schooling of boys there are two concepts that they are taught at an early age
1. Entezar - the capacity to patiently wait for the Imam return.
2. taajil, the actions needed to hasten the return of the of the Imam.
The Imam (Shia’s messiah) (Christianity’s anti-christ), return will coincide with an pitched battle between forces of evil and righeousness with evil ultimately routed.
Shia view the West as evil. So Shia muslims desire to bog down the US and the west in a long drawn out affair that exhausts them financially. It has a goal the surrender to Islam, and with this the Imam returns.
The request of Odumbo is just that an empty request, it has no meaning there is no heart in it. It is his response to cater to his base. This is no different the any response he has given to Americans that are not on the fringe. Gays and Lesbians, socialists, communists, Unions they all are social minorities nothing less he is only after the fruits, nuts and flakes.
He is basically telling Qaddaffi stay the course, I want to see your country to go into chaos, because this will signal the rest of the countries to continue on in the fight to destroy America from outside as Odumbo strives to destroy america from the inside.
Unfortunately we have a complicit democratic Party that will basically kiss Odumbos backside to achieve his legacy. The Downfall of america.
Woooo. Gadhafi is really frightened now.
Just spell it “Crazy Mo,” aka, “Sergeant Pepper.”
Maybe he can send over his old pastor to do it.
When it is a day late and a dollar short who cares what he was told to say(based on polling data)
Whatever, MuBarak Obama...
I think Obama needs to step down, and leave the country.
The Mombasa Moonbeam should hit the road too. He and his old pal Khadaffy could play penny ante poker together in Switzerland.
Where is Moammar going to go?
Listening to ABC now (no choice). MSM is praising Obama. This bloodshed has been going on for over a week and Asshole 0 hasn’t said a word. Now the Leftist bastards in the MSM are praising him. Why are we even continuing to talk to these people?
Now if he will only tell that to the other heads of ME governments, like the saudis, jordan, and all the other ‘allies’, socialist third world islamofascists.
So does Barack Hussien Obama think it is Frau Merkels job?
I wouldn’t go that far, seeing how he was good at killing Americans in the 80’s. Hopefully, he’s on his way out regardless of Obama’s windmill-driven pronouncements.
0h0m0llah needs to spend some quality Reggie-time with Qaddafi.
I’m sure 0h0m0 will change his mind after Qaddafi hires him to replace one of his female assistants.
I’m sure Qaddafi knows better than hiring 0b0z0 to protect him as a bodyguard.
Or what? We take him out ala Desert Storm? Somehow I don't see that happening.
Where's Hans Blix when you need him to deliver a strongly worded letter?
I think 0h0m0 should threaten to send Frau 0b0z0 to libya. Qaddafi will run, guaranteed.
Reminds me of the standup that robin williams did during the Reagan years when they bombed Libya. He had a number of funny lines about the incident.
