    McCain and his boy, Lindsey Graham, bash Obama.

    McCain and Graham: US failed to get rid of Gadhafi fast enough - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) praised the end of the Gadhafi regime in Libya on Sunday but criticized U.S. leadership for not removing Libya's leader more quickly.

    "We regret that this success was so long in coming due to the failure of the United States to employ the full weight of our airpower," the senators wrote in a joint statement.

    Why didn't they take him out? They were both shaking his hand and kissing his ass two years ago. Why didn't McCain give him the "Maverick Chop" when he was face to face with him?

    Oh bullshit.

    Providing minimal air cover over Libya is apples and fucking footballs with invading Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Obama has drawn us down in Iraq and is preparing to draw us down in Afghanistan.

    On top of that, he apparently was able to facilitate "regime change" in Libya without going all neocon.

    To be clear, this was a win for NATO. Not just the U.S. or Obama or us or whoever.

    Graham and McCain are just pissed that we didn't invade Libya and find ourselves getting shot at by the same people who just ousted Gadhafi.

    Self determination comes from within. Some people never learn.

    Oh, so now by the liberal view, if A WAR only last six months that doesn't make the Obama a WARMONGER and that makes it alright...
