  •  Lets be clear, it makes the beltway GOP sick... (11+ / 0-)

    Most Americans know how to feel about it.

    The kicker to me was how this cabal (Washington GOP + Foxnews) responded to the death of Gaddafi (i.e. the second most reviled terrorist in American history) less than 6 months later.  Their response went one of two ways:

    1.)  All credit goes to the British and the French (!!!!) for killing him. We did basically nothing. Rubio himself did this line until it came out a US Predator drone disabled G's convoy leading to his death.  Basically a big 'fuck you' to every American sailor, spy, and pilot who helped establish the NFZ, halt Gaddafi's advance, organize the Libyan rebels, and pinpointed strikes on military targets for NATO.

    2.)  This will lead to a radical Islamic dictatorship in Gaddafi's place.  Translation: we shouldn't get rid of this crazy terrorist dictator because his replacement might be a crazy terrorist dictator.  In reality, Libya has elected a diverse new parliament with as many women as the US Congress, and chosen as leader a long-time freedom fighter/liberal reformer who desires friendly relations with the West, particularly the US.

    In less than six months time, Obama did what neither Reagan nor Bush could...kill Gaddafi and Osama Bin Laden.  Both in operations that resulted in zero American casualties.
