Instead of calling it a war, which is precisely what bombing military assets of some other nation is, the loony left regime has chosen to tone down Obama’s illegal and impeachable (according to Joe Biden’s definition) actions taken against Libya by labeling it a ”Kinetic Military Action.”
I’m a scuffed-in Cavalry veteran. Excuse me while I laugh here. Ha ha ha.
Given the left’s obvious denial and subsequent rally to protect Obama “The Anointed One,” why not instead call the action against Libya a pillow fight? If one is aimimg for the absurd, why not go all the way?
Moreover, Obama has now yielded complete control of military action against Libya to the United Nations. Why? Perhaps to undo his mistake of sending military assets to Libya in the first place, again something Biden views as illegal (and the UN is as worthless as teats on a boar hog).
No matter how you slice it, we were at war with Libya for at least a handful of days. Yet Biden is eerily quiet on this subject he so energetically and angrily deployed against Dick Cheney and G.W. Bush when they contemplated using US troops to ”launch an attack on a foreign country without congressional authorization.” In that case it would have been Iran.
The tables have now turned. Obama-Biden is the new Bush-Cheney team and Libya is the foreign country in queston. They had no congressional authorization to attack. Oops!
Don’t get me wrong. I believe we should have gone in sooner and stayed the course until Wacky Qackdaffy was ousted. But fair is fair and somebody needs to press hypocritical Biden on this issue and sound off now just as he did in the article below.
Biden’s words about Bush:
Biden: Impeach President for Unauthorized Attack
Vice President Joe Biden has a very clear idea of what should happen to a president who orders U.S. military forces to launch an attack on a foreign country without congressional authorization: impeachment.
With some voices saying President Barack Obama should face impeachment for attacking Moammar Gadhafi’s forces in Libya, a videotape has surfaced from the 2007 campaign trail showing Biden threatening to impeach President George W. Bush if he attacked Iran without the approval of Congress.
“I have written an extensive legal memorandum with the help of a group of legal scholars who are sort of a stable of people, the best-known constitutional scholars in America, because for 17 years I was chairman of the Judiciary Committee,” Biden said in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on “Hardball.”
“I asked them to put together [for] me a draft, which I’m now literally riding between towns editing, that I want to make clear and submit to the United States Senate pointing out the president has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran.
“And I want to make it clear, I want it on the record … if he does, as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and former chair of the Judiciary Committee, I will move to impeach him.”
He went on to say: “I think the best deterrent is for the president to know, even at the end of his term, we would move and move to follow through with that so his legacy would be marred for all time if he acted in what was clearly, clearly an impeachable offense.
“In the absence of that, what happens is, and you’re going to think I’m joking about this — I’m not. If you’re going to impeach George Bush you better impeach Cheney first. Not a joke.” src
So, if they’re going to impeach Obama, should they impeach Biden first? According to Biden, the answer is yes and “not a joke.” This could explain Biden’s silence on this subject.
The hypocritical double standard is obviously still alive and thriving inside the DC beltway.
