The confusion in response to Obama’s morally justifiable but probably unconstitutional participation in attacks on the Libya government crosses all political ideologies. So what’s the right wing meme of late? Obama is a sissy who was dragged into war by women.
That’s what Rush says.
But I like Frank Gaffney’s approach better.
Needless to say, I hope the Gaddafi Precedent 1.0 will work out better than seems likely to be the case in Libya. Even more importantly, I am praying that Barack Obama and his anti-Israel troika of female advisors will not take us all down a road that seems ripe for another, ominous application of this precedent, with truly horrific repercussions – for Israel, for the United States and for freedom-loving people elsewhere. A Congress that was effectively sidelined by Team Obama in the current crisis had better engage fully, decisively and quickly if it is to head off such a disastrous reprise.
We are of course talking about Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, and Samantha Power. They reportedly pushed the intervention, with Gates, Brennan, and other male “sissies” in the administration opposed. It’s kind of a mix of criticism – Obama waited too long and had to be shamed by his women, but acted too quickly because women are emotional. It’s right out of the Herbert Dune novel.
Addendum: Margaret Carlson on “girl power.“
