ala Libya, 60 something days and counting. Actually, Kucinich seems like the only liberal with any balls doing so.

Will is correct. Had this been GW, the liberals would have been introducing articles of impeachment already.

Silence from the left is deafening.

What's even worse is they use the same slogans to justify this war. Won't wait for images of slaughter and all that.

I'm convinced the polls will be equally silent in '12 for Obama, at least from the left. They don't want to sound foolish to their friends by demanding he be impeached (peer pressure being what it is), but they can certainly stay home on November and then lie to their friends the next day saying that they tried to vote for him again.

So the right-wing was upset that Obama wasn't doing anything about what was happening in Libya, then Obama and NATO do actually intervene in Libya and the right-wing has a problem with Obama getting involved.

This is exactly like Kosovo. Republicans were all concerned about Clinton using airstrikes there, but had no problems about a full fledged invasion of Iraq. I can't handle even debating right-wing hacks anymore. It's pointless.

We know it's hard for liberals to understand Winter_Sucks, but we have these things called "laws" that even elected officials are supposed to follow. Obama isn't following the law, and this lawbreaking is being ignored by the left. Bush followed the law, had Congressional approval, and yet the left still hounded him constantly. Does that spell out the liberal hypocrisy clearly enough for you?

It's war in the name of social justice.

Wait, that's what Bush was pushing.

Uh, it's a war for oil.

Wait.. that just sucks.

It's a war for imperialism so the progressives can continue their resource grab so the US can continue its perpetual welfare state.

That's the ticket.

LOL, I see the neo-progs still haven't addressed the thesis of George Will's column.

Oh, and the unwritten rule is that you can't use an argument that has been preemptively dismissed with (in before...)
