    Those who follow my comments know I was against the mission including a no fly zone from the outset..

    I am not in favor of any president unilaterally deciding to take America into a conflict especially and most importantly if it does not pertain to America's immediate interest..

    As I stated on 6/22/11 on Spitzer, when Muammar is no more, obama and the republican hawks will have a short term victory.. then what?

    As for Boehner, he may be reaching for another tissue right about now, he was dooped in the lamb duck, Gov Palin was then dooped by Boehner while I was dooped by no one and the bill Boehner introduced did nothing, obama wasn't about to deploy boots into Libya anyway... Boehner is all talk and no action..

    As most who followed my comments and advise for 2 years including several weeks on another network regarding Libya know, I was against the entire Libya mission from the outset, not even in favor of a no fly zone...

    I am not in favor of any president left right Repub Demo unilaterally deciding when to take America into a conflict, especially and most importantly when it does not pertain to America's immediate interest......

    obama hid behind the U N vote in the beginning, paraphrasing, it was the will of the world so basically he had no choice..
    The vote was worked and inspired by Clinton and Rice and the world then went along...

    It has now gone well past the mandate..

    As I stated on 6/22/11 on spitzer and prior, Muammar will of course be no more and obama and the republican hawks will have a short term victory.... Then what, another Egypt... Iraq.. no one ever thinks these things through..

    As for Boehner, it's probably about time for him to reach for a tissue...

    He was dooped by obama in the lamb duck, Gov Palin was then dooped believing Boehner's bill would put obama in a box regarding Libya while I have said, Boehner will cave and the funding would never be cut....

    What teeth did the bill have when it stated obama would not be allowed to deploy troops in Libya.. which he had no plans to do so anyway...

    I am beginning to think Boehner is all talk and no action...
