    McCain and Graham are both a couple of MORONS.

    Neither one of them has ever seen a war they didn't like... Bastards!

    Well maybe they're angry. After all, their guy got us into a clusterphuck they claimed would cost a billion bucks and ended up costing trillions and getting us stuck there for years. Plus remember how embarrassed McCain was when, during his bid for President, the Iraqis announced a "Thank you for spending billions to rebuild us, now get the hell out of our country!" date?
    So this new guy comes in, ends Iraq, announces the end of Aghanistan, lets NATO put up in Libya and just helps out without the loss of a single American and then gets OUT (imagine that!), and finally tops it all off by decimating AQ and finally getting the only MISSION ACCOMPLISHED that most Americans gave a crap about - bin Laden.

    So no wonder the GOP wants to get in on some action! I don't think Obama, the Dems or the public will let them get us too directly mired in this thing though. Let's hope not.

    I prefer the president's way.

    You know - a quick and very effective surgical strike, take out the bad guy and get out. Worked with bin Laden, Gaddafi, ali-Awaki and a whole slew of other Taliban and al-Qeada leaders.

    Mittens and the rest of the Clown Car Candidates ('cept for Paul) want to get us into yet another Republican war, kill thousands and cost trillions.

    We need to leash the dam pubs because we need that money right here at home.

    Right...We can meddle in things that are none of our business and give the rest of the world reasons to hate America on the cheap!

    Fuckin' idjit.

    So then what you're saying is that McConnell and McCain and those from the GOP pushing this are idiots and should listen to Obama as he is handling it well.
    Thanks for sharing!

    None of them are handling any of it worth a shit.

    But thanks for trotting out the classic second-grade false dichotomy, for us all to learn from.

    Or we could have just stayed out of Libya.

    So then, what do you think Obama should be doing differently?

    (This is where we lose Oddball. Any butthead can come up with criticisms but he'll cut & run when asked for solutions)

    Easy. He shouldn't be getting us involved.
