Obama to Leno: Libya a recipe for success

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) -- President Barack Obama defended the U.S. role in bringing down Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi, rejecting assessments that the international coalition he helped assemble amounted to "leading from behind." "We lead from the front," he told late-night television host Jay Leno on Tuesday.

Laying out an argument for his emerging foreign policy doctrine, Obama distinguished the U.S. steps in Libya from the invasion and nine-year war in Iraq. He argued that by building a broad international alliance of European and Arab nations against Gadhafi, the United States saved American lives and money and achieved its goal.

It's a wonder Obama doesn't take credit for the Sun rising in the East.

No, Mr. Obama, sodomizing Gaddafi was not “leading from the front.”

Yes it is a recipe for success for the Socialist EU.

All you do is take the leader of a country who may just be trying to protect the sovereign wealth fund for his country by selling off his investment in the central bank of Italy just before it fails, and kill him under the guise of NATO, but using American military and American taxpayer money to do it.

Yep a recipe for success, for the corporatist fascism of Europe. But not for the success of the American experiment in FREEDOM from foreign entanglements and INDIVIDUAL right to be free from serving under foreign command as in NATO and the EU.

Yep, he doesn’t sell, the Bank of Italy is propped up and the 60 to 150 billion dollars in Libya’s sovereign wealth fund is consumed by the globalist monsters running the world economy.

It stinks to high heaven and is categorically un-American.

So, shooting your enemies in the back of the head after they have surrendered and been bound is the secret to success?

Obammy is channeling Stalin now!

Yea, that’s what I want to see reelected! /S

. Obama to Leno: Libya a recipe for success

It is a success because the Jihadists have another country, another resource for their subjugation of the West.

Obama should have admitted that in Libya we had Al Quaeda on our side, and not against us.

Certainly Al Quaeda wanted us to win. They just got another country.
