Good evening, Netizens...
If the Obama administration had chosen to ignore the potential massacre of the rebels in Libya, Republicans would right now be having a field day, condemning him for weakness and moral cowardice. The deafening howls of outrage from the Republicans would make the evening news ring like a gong.
Now on the other hand, if the president were a Republican and had organized the international coalition that stopped Muammar Gaddafi’s forces in their tracks, Republicans would right now be cheering him in the streets, and unquestionably attempting to wire him/her up for a certain reelection a year and one half from now.
Instead, Republicans in Congress are biting at Barack Obama’s Libyan efforts at every turn. They seem more interested in defeating Obama now than they are defeating Gaddaffi's forces.
The national news, it seems, is all who and what you believe. Of course, your results may differ.
