Obama says Gadhafi must leave Libya ‘now’
Daily Caller ^ | 2/26/11 | staff

Posted on 02/26/2011 1:55:40 PM PST by pissant

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 leader’s only means of holding power is to use violence against his people, then he has lost the legitimacy to rule and needs to do what’s right for his country by “leaving now.”

The comments mark the first time that Obama has called on Gadhafi to step down.

I'm sure the earlier demonstration of "damn the torpedos" naval power via a ferry boat to pick up our stranded citizens has Gaddafi shaking in his silk booties.

I'm just waiting for the media spin on this when we're told that Obama defeated a dictator that Reagan couldn't bring down.

I'm going to hurl a kidney.

Quadafi must go but it was OK to leave Hussein in power in Iraq? Hussein gassed his own people. Oh yeah - Obama wasn’t President then.

Obama says this as he sends his union goons out to bloody our citizens.

I wouldn’t go that far, seeing how he was good at killing Americans in the 80’s.

He's killing Islamic Swine now.

I wish him long life and happiness.

He is using strong language against a dictator. Not saying that is going to get anywhere but this is a good thing.

Maybe we are misinterpreting the Liberal Messiah’s words. Maybe the Liberal Messiah is telling Quadafi to leave because He doesn’t want Quadafi to die. Quadafi does consider the Liberal Messiah a friend. If Quadafi stays, he will be killed. The Liberal Messiah could simply be trying to save His friend.

AND, all we have is second-hand conversation, it’s nothing 0 has said publicly. He had no problem calling out a proven ally publicly but he keeps tip-toeing around Khadaffi. It’s another way he’s just like Jimmuh Karter.

When enough chaos has been created, enough people killed and all the leaders of the Middle East have been banished by mobs(powered by Google and Facebook); then the campaign will begin to make Obama the leader of the new, free,(sarc) Middle East.

The campaign will be powered by none other than......(drumroll).....Facebook and Google. Then the countries of the Middle East will have what we have had for two years....a virtual leader, Emperor of the Air, Prince of Cyberspace. They will lap it up like starved cats!

If you think that’s far fetched you’re not awake.

Obama is toppling Arab nations one by one and setting up the long awaited Islamic confederacy of states that will be overtly and covertly hostile to the United States and Israel.

I haven’t heard anything about that at all. In fact, I don’t recall the ‘Russkie hazelnut’ business. You may hear a lot of things on the radio that I never hear. I just read online and see some of Fox News. Sounds strange.

I’ve always liked Gaddafi.

I’ve heard that he loves America & our culture, the Marlboro Man and 50’s music. Americans have always been welcomed in Libya, even if officially they weren’t (during the embargo or whatever it was called). Customs officers were told to let any American in. The media has done a great job of vilifying him.

I really hopes he quells this Islamist nonsense. If he doesn’t, gas could be VERY high priced by July 4th.

If Libya goes down, Saudi will, too. Inevitable.

Actually I don't think Obama dislikes him so much. I understand Qaddafi was a big bank-roller for Rev Wright's "church." But just like the Rev, he had to be thrown under the bus.

But the UN has condemned Qadafi too, so there got to be some good there.

Well, Obama earmarked something like $400K to go to "charities" run by Qaddafi's kids that were involved in helping ships to run the Israeli blockade, among other things.

Qadaffy gives Obama the willies.Thast why I like Qadaffy.

You see Qadaffy is a thug like Obama, a far bigger thug who could actually reach out and touch Obama.

Obama’s step grand mom recently visited Qadaffi, causing a big stir by Obama.Fact is, Obama is scared of Qadaffie, for good reason.

As nutty as Moammar Gadhafi is, what he says about Al qaeda he has said before when he was not in a vulnerable situation. He had been the target of such radical islamist terrorists in the past (Post Terrorist Gadhafi).

Pot, meet kettle.
Obama is bound to blame Qaddafi directly if gas spikes up at the pumps.
Is it any wonder Obama does a very delicate dance around ALL these ‘trouble spots’, as he gauges how much he should say and WHEN? He knows his own Presidency is a boutique version of all of theirs, ‘threatened’ from within.

You mean, all that was necessary to “retire” Kadafi was to tell him to step down. Now, why didn’t the other President’s think to do that.
