On Libya, Obama critics want it both ways

March 20, 2011

I have noticed that over the past three weeks, every time President Obama said that military action may be needed in Libya, the naysayers shouted out that we have too many wars going already and we don't have a big enough stake in Libya to run up our war debt further. Fair enough.

Now that the United Nations has declared the intention of organizing a multi-national military effort there, the very same naysayers are complaining that Mr. Obama isn't out there leading the charge. I have to ask these pundits what they would prefer the U.S. to do in this case, since attacking is

the wrong answer, and not attacking is also the wrong answer.
