Four of the Senate’s top voices on foreign policy voiced their support Friday for the Obama administration’s move to formally recognize rebel leaders as the legitimate governing authority of Libya.

“We welcome the Administration’s decision to recognize the Transitional National Council (TNC) as the legitimate governing authority of Libya,” said Republican Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman (Conn.) in a statement.

Yep, I’ve been telling people for weeks now, the bloom is off the rose. Rubio also openly vowed to vote versus Ryan’s budget when it was unveiled and has made sympathetic noises re “comprehensive immigration reform.” It looks like he’s on board the McCain/Grahmnesty trains.

Buahahahahahahahaha! At least John Kerry learned his lesson and was absent.

I will continue to root for Gadhafi and his Bedouin tribesmen even if they have to take to the depths of the desert.

These senators are absolutely nuts.They are supporting Al Qaeda, and Obama has them jumping through hoops.Where are the Israelis ? Why was Nethanyahu not there?Buahahahahahahaha! These guys are the same as Hamas.

Rubio has made a terrible mistake.

Its all about these Senators helping the so called Transitional Council spend trillions of dollars of Gadhafi’s hitherto frozen assets.The arms dealers are circling like vultures.They need recommendations from these Senators.And a lot of money will go to solar power for the Libyan desert? Buahahahahahahahahaha!

Rubio is nesting with these crocodiles? SHAME.He is either naive, or too ready to line his pockets with Libyan Lucre. Hey. Money talks, Gadhafi walks.What a bunch of sharks.

Same here. I have been all along. I mean Qaddafi was kind of cleaning up his image and even becoming anti-terror, then... boom. Ubama regime is beyond clueless.

What is it about the Graham/McCain thing? I don’t get it. And Marco Rubio? Very bizarre.

Well, Rubio is better than Crist, but not a whole lot better, it would seem.

I remember saying shortly after he was elected that it was TOO EARLY to say that he would be a great presidential candidate. Let’s see how he does in his current job, first.

Evidently not too well. Disappointing.

Its not only clueless. Its a plan to have the Muslim Brotherhood in charge of Yemen,Somalia, Sudan, Kenya ( Obama helped Odinga in 2006/2007), Egypt, Libya,and the rest of Africa, the resurrection of the old Caliphate with the help of Iranian nukes to come.

Israel and the Saudis will be last as they retake Medina and Mecca.

This is Obama’s “lasting” legacy.

Libya is key, it is the gateway to Africa and the expansion of the Islamists into such places as Nigeria, where they are already blowing up schools and government buildings.

Obama has two Muslin Brotherhood policy advisors on his Whote House staff, unreproted by the MSM, but a retired CIA agent squeeled.

I wonder what dirt they found on Rubio? He’s either
stupid, lied too or compromised. Or maybe Graham and McClam
said they would retire. They probably got Lieberman with a
pint of Jack.

Of the four Senators, McCain and Lieberman were prominent in cheerleading clinton’s “humanitarian war” against the Serbs in 1999. Now there doing a similar thing with the obama/Hillary/Samantha Power “humanitarian war” in Libya.

I guess the other two Senators are just hangers-on. But no one should want to be a hanger-on of evil!

The West’s war on Islam continues; each day brings more volunteers to thei ranks while thinning those of the West. Like Saddam, Qaddafi was preferable as the devil we know; the current situation in Iraq speaks for itself.

Let’s replace it with worse. :)

I don’t believe that Rubio knows shet from Shinola about the Muslim Brotherhood, Libya, Qaddafi, Islamists, the Sannusiya or the Sharia. I don’t think he could tell you the difference between Tripoli and Tripolitania. It just sounds good to go along and get along with the rebels. He will look like a fool as this Libya issue continues to drag along and the thing ends a stalemate.
