He managed to frame war as collectivism.

His mind is permanently wired that way. He can not conceive of a human with individual thought.

that is what annoys me about the loon left.
I can understand anti war or how I would have difference of views but for them to shout anti war etc and then when they see their man doing war they have no problem with it.

Basically it is the hypocrisy of many on the left which pisses me off and if they woke up they would see it.

No matter what Obama says, this type of military intervention by US armed forces required Congressional approval. The invasion of Libya is a direct violation of the War Powers Act and usurps the Constitutional powers granted to Congress.

Obviously, Obama didn't go to Congress because he thought his request just might be rejected. The UN, NATO and the Arab league don't count.

People who believe this guy need intervention, fast. Everything he is talking about is what he is USING, for his own purposes. People’s desire for freedom yadda yadda. It’s all BS. Is there some kind of computer program that takes all our ideals and subverts them into Obamaspeak?

He cravenly and hatefully threw Bush under the bus without stating his name. Iraq took too long. Iraq was too expensive.

This guy is scum to even complain about others spending.

Obama is a hateful and small man - the stature of his high office is well beyond his personal reach

He never said “kinetic” - that must not be polling - but there was a lot of meaningless blather about how we have to help people around the world fulfill their “dreams and aspirations.” It was sickening, and I’ll never have tha 15 minutes back again.

He made a distinction by saying he consulted with the bipartisan leadership of congress. And the MSM will report that he consulted with congress not just the leadership. They will carry the lie for him and history will be written in the lie.

This is a speech of every stung together trite comment of a rebel-rousing type that tells absolutely nothing about the truth of what he has done, or has not done (according to following the Constitution). It is a campaign speech, nothing more. All the Obama writers got together and added their sophomoric, idealistic thoughts and sentences and called it a speech about our involvement in Libya. So sickeningly geared to satisfy the stupid masses of Obama adorers and the media. With nothing worthwhile. This guy is slick but just plain empty.

Regime change there(Iraq) took 8 years....we can’t afford that with Libya.

Holy crap...He just told that nutjob in Libya we can't do this for the long haul (in other words "hang in there..").

I was about to marvel over how he gave himself the out with the whole transfer to NATO schtick. But this...Damn....

As of August 23, 2006, there were 21 non-U.S. military forces contributing armed forces to the Coalition in Iraq. These 21 countries were: Albania, Armenia, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, El Salvador, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Mongolia, Poland, Romania, South Korea, and the United Kingdom.

However, in the August 23, 2006 Iraq Weekly Status Report (Slide 27) the State Department listed 27 foreign countries as contributing troops to the Coalition in Iraq. The additional four countries were Japan, Portugal, Singapore and the Ukraine.

In addition, that same Weekly Status Report listed 34 countries (including the US) as maintaining personnel in Iraq (as part of the Coalition, UNAMI, or NATO). The State Department reported that Fiji was contributing troops though UNAMI and that Hungary, Iceland, Slovenia, and Turkey were assisting with the NATO training mission. However, it is unclear whether Hungary actually maintained any forces in Iraq as part of NATO or UNAMI since its government announced the complete withdrawal of troops in December 2004.

In testimony before the Senate Armed Services committee on August 3, 2006, Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld described the coalition in Iraq as composed of 34 allies (plus the US).
