History Shall Judge Thee Harshly


Some recent headlines from the Drudge Report:

Mission 'clouded by confusion'...

White House: Days, not weeks...

France: Weeks, not days...

Dem Rep: Obama told me US would be 'in and out' of Libya...

OBAMA: No ground troops, no matter what happens...

2,200 ground troops head to Libya...



POLL: Only 17% of Americans see Obama as a strong and decisive military leader...

The whole situation has me a little baffled for multiple reasons.

This morning Drudge linked to a poll that claimed only 47% of Americans approved of the "kinetic military action" in Libya. However, HuffPo had a poll that claimed 60% supported it. I guess we should average the two.

I read some comments by one analyst who attended a White House briefing. He said that he could not get a satisfactory answer on a seemingly simple question: "Could you clearly state for me the commander-in-chief's intent?" Eight hours after reading that, I still do not know the answer to the question.

The only thing that keeps me from weeping over the damage this poseur has done is the certain knowledge that God rules.

Scott - it is a bit baffling. I also heard tonight that the President recently (late last year, I believe) signed off on a military aid package for Libya.

Chaps - yes, that knowledge is also the only thing that allows me to sleep at night.
