skirts are short but for crying out loud can she get something to fit her , with no creases and keep her damn legs closed.

She seems to think she’s a cat walk model not a big arse who can’t wear these clothes right.

You would think her mother who is on vacation with them on our FRIGGING DIME would tell her to cover up a bit

>Cease fire after he and his serial killer sons stop wasting oxygen.

As opposed to the islam nutjob replacements who only chop off heads, molest children, stone women and are filthier
that pig poop. Let them fight it out themselves. Maybe there will be fewer koran kooks in the end.

Funny that you (indirectly) mention MObama's lack of grace, as whilst watching the video of Mrs Palin's post-speech interview, from India, yesterday, one of the first things that struck me (again) was how well postured and ladylike she is.
I'd love to perform a test: have Mrs Palin and MObama stand beside each other. In front of both ladies, on the floor, is a ball. Each lady is then instructed to simply pick the ball up.
I would bet Mrs Palin would bend at the knees to retrieve the ball whilst MO would bend at the waist.

OMG I just thought of her doing that yoga when I read about her bending down to pick the ball up.

I don’t think we’re asking too much for our first lady to be a lady.
Giving out high fives, dressing like a slob, eating out on junk while telling us to cut down and eat healthy, having her legs open so we can see up between her legs , bending over showing all and seeing her panty lines, walking and talking like she does is not first lady material.

We all know the media are left wing and cover for the obama’s, that is no secret but to tell us she is beautiful and graceful while we’re looking at her is an insult.

Sarah Palin whether any agree or disagree has style, she can rough it up camping or she can be a a very classy stylish lady at a ball.
MO and her mother walking tom that helicopter looked like bag ladies.

Qaddafi may be dumb but he’s not stupid!

no wait,

He may be a fool but he’s not crazy,

OK, again,

He may be smart but he’s not intelligent!

Who are you again? Why do I have to justify anything to you? Did you donate any money to FR? Why is it action against Saddam Hussein was a GO, but taking Ghadaffi out is a no go? American interests are at stake. Libya is well within range of Europe and the MED. Ghadaffi’s stagnant brutal dictatorship has decimated oil capital out of that country. Besides, no president wants another Rwanda on their watch. I remember conservatives lambasting President Clinton for not stepping in during the Rwanda genocide and called him a weak world leader. Anyway, I fully support taking out a dictatorship in the ME so long as the follow on is a democratic/republic government representation.

Leep said,”Don’t spoil the ending but Gaddafi loses.”
Dfwgator responded, “Then Al-Qaeda wins.”

Hopefully, a lesser dictator steps in that can keep Al-Qaeda in-line. Maybe, one that can work with us somewhat. That seems to be about the best we can hope for in the ME. We could bomb 99.999% of Libya into non-existence and a sleavoid from somewhere in the ME would step in.
Like sand in a sieve.

Hoping is not a winning strategy.

Okay, the Arab League is now complaining because they think "the attacks went too far".

The Arab League wanted a No-Fly Zone. They even volunteered some of their own fighter aircraft to enforce it.

However, the Arab League wanted the No-Fly Zone Fairy to wave her magic wand so that their aircraft could safely fly, back and forth, in the Libyan sky, with the Libyan air defenses still intact.

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a No-Fly Zone Fairy. The sky is safe only after a swarm of cruise missiles followed by a swarm of manned aircraft with HARM missiles blow up every anti-aircraft defense radar station to Kingdom Come.

So, in fact, the Arab League is criticizing the U.S. for making it safe for Arab League fighter aircraft to do what they wanted to do.

Facetiously, what the U.S. could have done is to say, "Fine. A No-Fly Zone has been declared. Send in your aircraft to enforce it, Arab League. Once a dozen Arab League aircraft are blasted out of the sky by Libyan SAM's and the Arab League begs the U.S. to take out the Libyan air defenses, then the campaign to suppress Libyan air defense can proceeded."

Realistically, what the U.S. could have done is to have a President that paid more attention to his job than to NCAA basketball brackets so that all of this would have been discussed and settled before the first Tomahawk was ever launched.

No shit? Why don't you give us another example of American power, since we already know that, frankly, we own airpower and the carriers.....

So how does Obama get away with firing on a country with whom we are not at war, without an act of Congress. Bush needed an act of Congress. Why not the FAKE POTUS? Where, oh, where is the Leftist dominated media outrage???????

Doesn’t look like this is going to end well for Gaddafi. If I were him, I’d take note of what happened to Hussein (Saddam, Not Barrack), and make plans to leave. Before leaving, I would destroy every piece of infrastructure I could. I’d go Francisco d’Anconia on the place, particularly the oil facilities. That would have the worst effect on the Western countries. We’ll see.

And I guess when you look up the terrorist attacks, sponsored by these Muslim countries, against the West and Jews throughout the world it amounts to nothing.

We are in a third world war, My Friend. It IS the West vs Islam which is not a religion.

I fear that the only real chance Gaddafi has, is to pull off a spectacular raid on US civilian targets. If he could round up a collection of Embassy employees somewhere, or detonate a Western building. Do the hostage thing.

Wouldn’t surprise me a bit. I’m not a huge Steve Tyler fan, but I think he nailed it when he said, “It’s really dangerous for a young man to be able to afford his vices.” It’s also dangerous for the weak-minded, right, Mr. Khadaffy?
