WASHINGTON (AP) -- Top Senate Democrats and Republicans agreed Monday on a resolution backing limited U.S. involvement in the NATO-led military campaign against Libya, days after the expiration of the legal deadline for President Barack Obama to seek full-blown congressional authorization.

Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, D-Mass., and Sen. John McCain, the top Republican on the Armed Services Committee, introduced the non-binding resolution along with five other Republicans and Democrats.

(SNIP)

Also backing the resolution were Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich.; Joe Lieberman, I-Conn.; Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga.; Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

Senators John S. McCain, Saxby Chambliss and Lindsey Graham. Why am I not surprised. It is the usual suspects.

What will they call it? The McCain-Kerry Fight-on-the-wrong-side Bill?

The usual suspects, indeed.

The same damned thing that happened when bill clinton went into Yugoslavia on the wrong side in order to distract attention from Monicagate and scarf up a bit more Albanian drug money.

Like Obama is even listening to these pathetic one-handed clappers in the Senate. They’ve allowed themselves to become irrelevant ceding more and more power to the narcissistic Marxist in the White House. This merely enforces the fact.

Lindsey Graham is not a Republican.

The only he got elect was Sarah Palin was on the ticket and South Carolina wasn't paying attention, but he won't make it next time.

Already McCain, Lindsey and Saxby are fantasizing about being complimented for their "courageous stand" by Obama on the 2012 campaign trail.

Worthless sacks of crap indeed!

To what purpose I can only imagine. Goober and Chambliss are up in 2014 and McCain is good out to 2016. Why do they care what Obozo says in 2012? GET RID OF THESE RINOS or start a honest to goodness 3rd party and put them out of business.

Normally Saxby is somewhat thoughtful about his participation in congressional foolishness. I believe he’s part of the gang of 6 to keep liberals from slipping in taxes. I believe he’s involved in this resolution in order to force Obumo to document his position. The danger is that Obumo just keeps blowing past congress with no accountability and no one to call him on it.

Fact is Obumo has NO respect for any congressional opinions or actions. He is the messiah. He is always right. He is patient with lesser humans as they catch up to his superior intellect.
I don’t think it’s a bad idea to hamstring BO. This one effort may not amount to much but a good web has many strands.

Why do they care what Obozo says in 2012?

Because it will get made into favorable mentions in the liberal press and then they can pat themselves on the back for "reaching across the aisle", which might appeal to mush-headed voters who start paying attention a few hours before the election. It is all about their egos and getting attention, not about this country.

"Lindsey Graham is not a Republican."

Neither is McCain. Never was.

Thanks tcrlaf.
a resolution backing limited U.S. involvement in the NATO-led military campaign against Libya... Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, D-Mass., and Sen. John McCain, the top Republican on the Armed Services Committee, introduced the non-binding resolution along with five other Republicans and Democrats.
No news coverage of the Libyan involvement? Strange. When it was time to destroy the Taliban, the media shills called the congressional face-saving faux agonizing the most thorough gov't discussion of a US conflict since the Civil War. And then didn't call out any of the turncoats when they turned coat.

It is beginning to matter less and less which party it is, they both look about the same.

Libya is going to be a really bad deal.

McCain, Chambliss and Graham. The three blind mice of the Senate. Some one please chop off their tails with a carving knife.

“The danger is that Obumo just keeps blowing past congress with no accountability and no one to call him on it.”

That describes Obama since he’s been in office. No reason for him to change now.

There isn’t one person on that list who would be missed if they were all flushed down the pipes. In fact, the overall Senate IQ and integrity level would shoot up.

Correct. The Senate can pass all the asinine resolutions which they want. The House can refuse to fund implementation of any of them. If they only would.
