Gaddafi RIP -- More to come as Obama's popularity numbers continue to tank?

By Kay Daly

Has anyone noticed that as Barack Obama's popularity numbers tick downward, rogue dictators, assorted bad guys and America's Most Wanted seem to have a shorter life span? 

Gone is the happy hippy leftist "we are the world" rhetoric praising Obama's skills as a conciliator, a unifier, a peacemaker, while condeming George W. Bush, the military, covert actions and American foreign policy in general.  Enter Barack Obama suddenly as a John Rambo wannabe armed with predator drones, Navy Seal Teams and the United Nations forces.  So Muammar Quaddafi has gone to meet Allah.   

After Saddam Hussein was captured, tried, hung and buried at sea, President Bush was called a war criminal by most of the liberal blogosphere and was the regular subject of death threats in leftist protests, albeit a subject largely ignored by the mainstream media.  

What would the general opinion be of Qaddafi's demise if one were to drag a microphone and television camera through the OWS protesters in Zuccotti Park in NYC?  Think that will happen?  Doubtful. 

And what about all of the Hollywood stars and starlets who went over to Libya and performed for Gaddafi in his heyday to show their solidarity?  Anything to say now?  No?  Anyone going to interview them?  No??

Now before we start dancing in the streets with the exuberant media, perhaps there ought to be a few questions asked.  Such as, what happens now?  Who will take over this very fractured nation?  Since our nation was not in the lead of this parade, what say do we have in who takes the reigns?  The UN?  Dandy. 

And what about the weapons Libya supposedly has?  There is rumored to be large caches of very dangerous materials that are now pretty much unsecured and until some grown ups take charge, we have reason to be extremely nervous.

But I'm sure the wannabe Rambo of Pennsylvania Avenue has thought about all of that, given how coherent his foreign policy has......been......

Oh dear.

    Maybe the liar-in-thief will get another “peace” prize.

    I wonder if Obama will send a ‘condolence card’ to Gadaffi_duck’s parents.

    Obama had little to do with this except for the NATO bombing which has long since ceased. The news reports are that the Dictator was killed by Libyan rebels who were finally able to over-run his “hometown”!
     
    I prefer to remember Obama’s connection to Gaddafi as the grinning jerk shown in the picture on this page shaking hands with the Lockerbie Bomber who called Obama brother!  Obama will do or say anything in an attempt to resuscitate his shattered image!

      Absolutely!  He had little to do with Osama Bin Laden, too, but took almost all the credit regardless.  More likely than not, he’ll bask in the credit for this as well, hoping to prop up those sagging approval ratings.  The Muslim extremists will now take over Libya as they have in Egypt.

      Actually, first reports said that a French Mirage fighter jet shot up Ghaddafi’s convoy and he was wounded in both legs.  The moslem brotherhood, who have taken over the country, later said he was wounded in the head, too, and died.  A bullet in the forehead coup de grace?  To put him out of his suffering, of course. After all, we know that mohammedism is the religion of peace.

    We need to make it clear that Gaddafi’s own people are responsible for killing him–if he is dead.  Obama has nothing to do with it and deserves absolutely none of the credit.  We still have not seen credible evidence that bin Laden is dead, now Gaddafi is in the same situation.

    Read the article highlighted. It talks about “WMD’s” I wonder if we’ve now found all the WMD’s that Saddam Hussein had.

    We’re still in Afghanastan, Iraq, Libya and now also Africa. Hmmm.

      I remember when Bush went into Iraq in 2003. From then on the press and the liberals hammered him relentlessly because no WMD’s were found and it was an “unessary war”, continually posting all the US deaths etc
      Yet, not a word about the fact that we are not involve in 4 wars under Obama, two of which he started or at least sent troops in.

      One of his campaing promises was to get us out of Iraq,and Afganastan and bring the troops home. Well, some of that has been done, but we’re still there.

      They sure will, but never because America meddles in their respective countries politics. Democracy and Freedom require the blood of the people, the fortitude of the people, the sacrifice of the people. Not outside people, the citizens of the respective countries where dictators flourish.

      America needs to clean house, at home, immediately!

    Two or three weeks ago, a small news story was posted about missiles, missile technology, and the warheads for those missiles went missing from the Libyan militaries inventory. The weapons are already in transit somewhere for use in places America would prefer them not being.

    The Muslim Brotherhood, terrorist organization, continues to hold sway on both sides of this conflict for personal power. Obama has doomed Isreal to be on the receiving end of Libya’s weapons. Obama has doomed Americans abroad to be on the receiving end of Libya’s weapons. Obama has doomed Americans inside America’s borders to be on the receiving end of Libya’s weapons. But, let us not forget the millions of Christians living in the Middle East that Obama has doomed to be on the receiving end of Egyptian, Libyain, Turkish, etc… weapons.

    Obama has the blood of millions on his hands.

      Nope. A word of caution. See LIC or Low Intensity Conflict, organized terrorism, is a position I study, review, and think about defending against. America has problems with border security, but taking guns away is not the solution. America has problems with illegal aliens and document mills placing false citizens into the mix and allowing them to obtain employment; but biometric ID is not the solution.

      Much of the problems the government designs solutions for cannot and should never be addressed by the government, but by the individual citizens at the lowest level of government where action can be effectively taken. Our US Constitution was designed with this in mind. Who has more power to take effective action against a home invader, the mayor in city hall, the governor in the capital, politicians in Washington, or an armed home owner? Yet, we hire police, elect politicians, and remain unsafe.

      America is being torn apart from the inside so we are divided and ripe for attack by those who instigate LIC. Unless “We the people” stand and demand better with words and with swords, we will fall.

    Forget Obama, Romney, Cain, Perry and every major political figure like them.  Obama; like the vast majority of people in power and authority in America; is nothing but a pon on a chessboard. He is expendable. There are others that are far more important and far more powerful that are really in control; not only in America, but around the planet.
    The economic and social inequity on this planet; and the misery that ensues as a direct result of it, are artificially created and continuously manipulated to benefit the few at the expense of the many. If you sincerely want change and sincerely want to improve the condition of millions of people, end the immigration problems, unemployment problems, health care, and thousands of other small and great problems that are plaguing humanity around the planet, GET RID OF THE CENTRAL BANKS. 

    Central Banks are obsolete.  Debt based economies are obsolete. They were never designed for; nor can they function effectively, in a High-Tech Industrial Capacity Global Economy without behind the scenes manipulation.  Trying to maintain the status quo with outdated and obsolete monetary systems will destroy economies around the world and create nothing but chaos and unnecessary destruction. It is time for millions of people to start growing up and putting away their Debt-for-Currency Baby Bottle.

    It’s time nations started printing their own money and regaining control of their national economies and putting the CENTRAL BANKERS where they belong… in prison for crimes against humanity.
