    As we all know Muammar Qaddafi has had his ticket punched. Word has it it was on the South Bound train.

    I was listening to talk show host Stephanie Miller this AM. She is mad because Republicans are not giving credit to President Obama for the demise of Qaddafi.

    I was under the impression that it was the Rebels who completed the mission.

    But here is my question.
    Just exactly what did Obama do to deserve credit for the end of this reign of terror?

    Without the help of the US and European nations the rebels would have been squashed like bugs IMHO.

    Be fair, give credit where credit is due, and Obama did help the rebels greatly.

    There is a quirk that is such a present danger in all of this and that is the Muslim Brotherhood! Yes, I suppose that the credit for the support of these Muslim Brotherhood Rebels should be given to Mr. and not President Obama. He is after all supporting the Brotherhood that hates everything the American Constitution stands for.

    But, just as the Nation no longer follows God, neither do they remember! The saddest thing is that we have, as a people, lost our backbone! We endorse and pay for terrorism against ourselves and our allies by purchasing Light Crude from the people that resent our very being instead of developing the Natural Gas resource that we have better than 200 years of in the ground, under our own soil. But then, we did elect an illegal alien, Muslim to be our POTUS.

    Salty, I have no idea how to wake the sleeping dragon once more!

    Drone airstrikes flushed Gadaffi out of his hidey-hole so the rebels could cap him.

    I'm just glad that our Nobel Peace Prize winning President has not only maintained, or added our military involvement to about four or five armed conflicts and he is racking up quite the body count right now.

    (I'm using my ironic voice right now)

    I heard his campaign slogan is going to be...

    "Go ahead, make my day!".

    It takes a brave but stupid person to frack for natural gas under his source of drinking water. Or is someone else's drinking water?

    Fracking is nothing new. It has been going on since the 1930's without incident.

    It's just the latest enviro-wacky obsession.

    Except that the EPA studies show that there is no danger to drinking water from hydraulic fracturing. Studies done, please note, by the very paranoid, very liberal EPA. If THEY say there is no problem, there is NO problem...

    If the EPA is as "liberal" as you say, why would you trust what they say about the drinking water?

    Nothing. He was just following the policy he was given by the international community (banks and corporations) and all the corporate funded think tanks they control.

    He deserves credit for ignoring the law of the land and failing to uphold his oath to protect and defend the U.S. constitution and helping to give the executive the power and authority to murder anyone anywhere for whatever reason the POTUS declares.

    Welcome the the land of the real. Obama took out one terrorist by using other terrorists (Al Qeada) as proxy fighters. These "rebels" are made up of the worst type of radicals Libya had to offer and now we're supposed to think just because one dictator was replaced with many radicals Libya is going to be some kind of haven for democracy?

    Yeah right. All Obama has succeeded in doing was to show just how much of a total fraud the "war on terror" really is. For that he does deserve some credit.

    It's just to bad all of our founding principles and thousands of innocent lives had to be sacrificed for him to show us.

    That goes without saying, if you have a lick of sense. If your agenda is to invent environmental hazards when given any possible chance, the evidence has to be pretty staggering for you to say there is NO environmental hazard.

    Latest issue of Scientific American has a story on fracking. Says in the old days they just sank one shaft. Now they horizontal drill and use several million more gallons of water and chemicals.
