President Obama was apparently losing the support of his own party in Washington last week for dithering while Libya burned.
So, finally, when Qaddafi revealed himself to be a complete madman and seemed like he was on the way out, Obama finally said it: “Qaddafi has lost the legitimacy to lead and… must leave.”
Say, “About what I said about how you must leave…you know I didn’t really mean that, right?”
Roll in the tanks and finish the job?
Pray quietly that the rebels rebound?
Whatever Obama decides to do, a drawn-out civil war certainly isn’t going to help anyone. And it seems that, at best, Qaddafi’s going to hang on longer than President Obama had hoped.
