    Two different government entities.

    The president is doing the Lybia thing - he didn't consult Congress about it (which is going to become an issue)
    Congress is the one who may shut down government, not the president, due to not being able to work out a budget agreement.

    I'm doing my best to keep this post politically neutral... ;)

    I am reading the republicans are saying he is not doing enough and waited to long. I agree on the two sides, but the end result is still we do not have the money to fund this, so the sheeple should be storming DC, but then they should have done that 8 years ago also.

    maybe this was a misinterpretation of an attempted "present" vote?!!?!?... :dunno: :lolsmash:

    sorry, The POTUS does NOT get to vote "present"...

    and even tho it IS congress that works out the budget, the POTUS has to SIGN it, so if he disagrees... back to the drawing board, so he is NOT neutral concerning it so "sharing the wealth" of blame is appropo IMHO ;)

    this subject deserves so much more discussion time than I have to give at the moment :(

    Easy, they have too much liquid gold. No one cared about people slaughtering each other in the countries w/o oil.

    We don't buy Libya's oil. There is no oil in Afghanistan, no this goes deeper.

    Nato said Gahdafi is not their objective. WTF he is the source of the problem. Obama will have to once again go back on his word and the U.S. will again have to pick up the worlds slack. We've done enough its time for someone else to get off their a$$.

    Twas brillig on the slivey troves

    Let's see now; the guy that won the Nobel Peace Prize now has us involved in another "Hot" war in a Muslim country, (remember, this was the "Peace" candidate in the last election).

    Oh, wait a minute, maybe he was studying one of his heros, Franklin Delao Roosevelt. That was the guy that finally got us out of the last depression by going to war to protect the European interests.

    Meanwhile, back in the asylum known as the United States Congress, they still can't figure out what every American family knows... that you cannot live above your means and survive, (and the funny/sad thing is the lesson hasn't been learned by the idiots from either side of the political fence.)

    That humming sound you hear is all of the Founding Fathers spinning at high revs in their collective graves.

    Woman to Benj. Franklin following the Continental Congress: "Dr. Franklin, what have you given us?"
    Franklin; "A republic Madam, if you can keep it."

    :gaah:

    The Arabs have finally woken up to the fact that their enemies are their own dictatorial leaders.
    We don't know how it's going to play out, but we've got them fighting among themselves and killing each other, so it can't be all bad. Nobody knows what the end game is going to be, and AFAIC, it's not gonna be good any way you cut it. I'm just sayin'

    The Arabs haven't awakened to having bad leaders, they have in the past and will in the future always have bad leaders. The riots are caused from high food prices and shortages American Thinker: America and the Middle East Food Riots and are being encouraged by radical Muslims hoping to exploit the situation. If this continues we will end up with the Islamic Caliphate the radicals have sought for so long.
    So way is this president taking the side of the totalistic religious extremest over a secular despot?:nuts: Will he do the same in Saudi Arabia or Bahrain? If he does this will ensure a middle eastern war between the Arabs and Jews which could easily escalate into WWIII . Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt are the only reason this hasn't already happened.

    My Gooshh but that is so scary :eek:
    France leading anything but a wine tasting . . . WTF

    I thought this was supposed to be creating a NO FLY ZONE over Lybia.
    Why are we wasting million dollar Tomahawk missles to take out a single tank?
    Do their tanks fly?

    And the American people sit on their hands and let this madness go on. . .
