Iraq vs. Libya: Obama Takes a Swipe at Bush forů What Exactly?
michelle Malkin ^ | 3/22/2011 | doug Powers

President Obama, Nobel Peace Prize winner, launched an attack on another country while in another country, without the congressional approval that George W. Bush had and with only about half as many other countries on board. Obama seemed to feel this constituted enough of a moral high ground from which to take a jab at the former president. *snip*

As the folks at Fox quickly pointed out, Bush actually had twice as many international allies for the invasion of Iraq as Obama has put together for his adventure in Libya.

Iraq violated the "cease fire" so many times, it was pathetic.

Libya is not a comparable.

“Obama Takes a Swipe at Bush for… What Exactly?”

When you lost your balance and begin tumbling headlong down the stairs, you grab the rail. It is an instinctive reaction... You would even do it in the dark, in an unfamiliar building...

Like “O” taking a swipe at Bush!! Answer your question?

Have you ever noticed Obama's speeches when he's talking about an ongoing issue and the actions he's taking at the given moment he never fails to add "In the past..." or "Under the last administration..." and criticizes the Republican President or the GOP on how they had dealt with that same particular problem / issue. He must have a template for every speech that includes comparing himself to the past administration. And quite he lies about how he's doing it now and how it was done under Bush.

The last time he did this was with the Libyan War and how he went about gathering support from our allies and almost sounded like he was accusing Bush of not doing that.

The entire Iraq war cost less than Obama’s Porkulus package...but he still blamed Porkulus on Bush.

Obozo probably thought Ghadaffi would just roll over and help him pave the way for an islamic government in Libya.

Guess that didn’t work out too well.

They made a movie about this action ( don't know what to call it.) The gang that couldn't shoot straight.

Moammar doesn't even have that many planes. He has tanks and other weapons.

“In the past there have been times when the United States acted unilaterally or did not have full international support, and as a consequence typically it was the United States military that ended up bearing the entire burden.”

Obama does this in all of his speeches. No respect.

I have a feeling Dick Cheney's going to be coming out again soon to give his thoughts on the matter.

It's been hard not to notice, it's also hard not to notice that it's now only working with Odumbo's moonbat base, and with this war, maybe not even for some of them.

Schadenfreude in the best sense of the word, and I love it.

I would look forward to that and hope you are prescient here.

All I know is he’d better stick with Michelle. I don’t think he’d do well as a remarried man.

I believe there were 17 UN resolutions against Iraq before GWBush AND HIS COALITION finally enforced one

Still, GWB and McPain helped to elect Obama and Laura still gushes over him, Obama, that is.

Can anybody help me...

I’m trying to think back at all the wars we’ve had in history now but only as far back as Vietnam.

I could be wrong but it appears that the justification for going to Libya is the closest one in reasoning that I can remember to Vietnam War.

I may be forgetting a war where we sent troops to a place where national security really was not the issue.

Well, in Iraq, Bush killed the hell out of Alkida...Obama is helping them take over a country.
