Given the situation in Libya and the President’s decision to authorize missile strikes as part of the U.N. backed effort there, I find the reaction from those of the liberal ilk boggling. There’s a set of them that think this is all fine and good. There are some that are holding reservation (although holding out opinion on this is a position of moral or intellectual weakness). And then there are those that have called it out:
“We are in Libya because of oil. It all goes back to the five million barrels of oil we import from OPEC on a daily basis.”
— Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., on MSNBC
“The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”
— Sen. Barack Obama answering a December 2007 question by the Boston Globe
Democratic Congressman, Dennis Kucinich, has gone so far as to suggest Obama be impeached, according to a report in Politico. Kucinich’s sentiments were shared by fellow anti-war democrats Maxine Water, Sheila Jackson Lee, Jerrold Nadler, and Mike Capuano.
Just some thoughts to mull over.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
