Ditherer in Chief Says Gaddafi Must Leave Libya Now

This must have been difficult…
Especially since Gaddifi is such a huge fan.
Libyan tyrant Muammar Gaddafi praised Barack Obama this week and acknowledged his Muslim descent.

After nearly two weeks of conflict, Obama told reporters today that Gaddafi must leave Libya now.
The AP reported:

Ratcheting up the pressure, President Barack Obama on Saturday said Moammar Gadhafi has lost his legitimacy to rule and urged the Libyan leader to leave power immediately.

It was the first time Obama has called for Gadhafi to step down, coming after days of bloodshed in Libya. Gadhafi has vowed to fight to the end to keep his four-decade grip on power in the North African country.

“When a leader’s only means of staying in power is to use mass violence against his own people, he has lost the legitimacy to rule and needs to do what is right for his country by leaving now,” the White House said in a statement, summarizing Obama’s telephone conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Paul Wolfowitz told reporters today that, “Obama slowness on Libya is a devastating image.”

    Hey Barry how about YOU step down! Fraud!

    The last thing he wants is for Ghadaffi to step down – or any of his relatives to escape Libya. That is why the Executive Order seizing all of his assets within the US. Ghadaffi has a couple of huge bank accounts here. . . .

    Why didn’t he ask the leader of Iran to leave the country?

    ““When a leader’s only means of staying in power is to use mass violence against his own people, he has lost the legitimacy to rule and needs to do what is right for his country by leaving now,”
    Luckily for Obama, he’s still got deception, lies, mass-media lapdogs, intentional destruction of industry, takeover of industry, unconstitutional taxation and endless regulation.

    So, apparantly, Obama still has “legitimacy to rule”, since he’s not YET used mass violence against his own people…..as if Americans were ever “his” people to begin with.

    I will throw this line back in his face when he does use mass violence against us. And he most probably will. Or his Buzz Windrip* shock troops in the unions and ‘hoods will do it for him. Hell, they’re already gearing up for it, it seems.
    *Buzz Windrip is the candidate in Sinclair Lewis’ near-prophetic novel “It Can’t Happen Here”, and his thugs were a perfect picture of the Dems’ rabid and violent supporters.

    if he can throw his pal rev. wright under the bus, i am sure he can throw his biggest fan under there too. hugs and kisses can wait . 6 more years of destroying this country is the goal right now.

    does this seem to be just another way for the obama to vote present and hedge all of his bets? on the one hand, if kadafi is overthrown, just great; obama throws some carrots to the opposition. he can give another delightful obama speech about respect for democracy and the will of the Libyan people, and follow that up with hundreds of millions of dollars to repair mosques, put on a camel beauty contest,etc., like he did with Egypt. while on the one hand, if obama knows for sure, there is no chance for a successful coup, than there isn’t much to be lost, since we don’t have good relations with Libya anyways. Also kadafi is a political liability and an albatross, even more so than Ayers. and it goes to show, that the tie that bind the strongest is a common enemy.

    BG #5, Yes, but you can’t “dupe the leadership” when the leadership is aiding and abetting with full knowledge of the goals and consequences of sharia.

    Allow me to posit: The obamster’s inculcated hatred for his mother, his guardian grandmother (accused of racism by barry, himself), his harpy spouse, and his early muslim training, has lead him to welcome the horrors of female mutilation and male dominance.

    His admitted use of cocaine and other drugs complete the picture of an individual incapable of non-sociopathic relations with anyone, especially women.

    Zim #6, The obamster’s “blindness” and disregard for the true freedom fighters in Iran will go down in history as another epic failure, ala Czechoslovakia and Hungary.

    Ok, now we know this is a sure thing. Obama, you can put your finger down, the wind is evident to EVERYONE.

    Qadaffi duck lost his legitimacy to rule thirty five years ago. What kind of crazy is Obama talking about? The arab/persian dictators HAVE NO LEGITIMACY, never had never will.

  • hermie

    So now the MSM will praise Obama for his ‘leadership’ in ‘demanding’ that Daffy step down.

    His ‘courage’ is just so inspiring…. Just ask the Iranians who tried to demonstrate against the dictatorship there.

    Oh that’s right, they are either dead, in hiding or in prison.

    I guess it’s time for another party at the White House then!

    When did Conservatives turn into the Blame America First crowd? It’s repulsive.

    Barry to Moomoo…. ” You must leave Libya now!, (if you want to be here in time for my Gladys Knight party on Monday)..

    When did Conservatives turn into the Blame America First crowd?

    So, criticizing Obama’s weakness is now “blaming America first”?

    Obama campaigned for president for two straight years. He assured us that he was up to the job. We get to criticize him for being incompetent and having no learning curve. Since January of 2009 he’s consistently voted “present” on foreign policy, never once getting out ahead of a crisis.

    Criticizing his failures is putting America first, not blaming America first. We’re blaming Obama for his own collapse. You, on the other hand, are putting him ahead of your country.

    no praise for Obama here..


  • Joanne

    Obama accuses others of having something to hide, but he, himself, is the biggest fraud out there. Of course, when he uses violence, he’ll make himself an exception.

  • Scott

    Dead men tell no tales…Obama, the Clintons, Gordon Brown, and a host of others would prefer Gaddafi die in place. If he ever starts talking of the deals he struck with fools over the release of the Lockerbie bomber there could be grounds for impeachment of the foreigner in our Whitehouse as well as criminal prosecutions of the Clintons. Of course, the brits will have to deal with their own criminals.

    Is Gaddafi’s money in a Chicago bank? hehhehehe

    I was thinking that maybe Gaddafi’s money is in the Chicago Stock Exchange which all the crooks are envolved! Bet…ya!

    Barack Obama linked to Chicago
    sharia finance fugitives wanted by FBI

    [Read in depth details about this scandal and the Obama / Biden connection to these Muslim fugitives wanted by the FBI at the Chicago News Bench web site. There are several posts, read them all, including:

    Barack Obama has long had strong ties to Muslims and to Pakistanis. He also has long and strong ties to Sunrise Equities and Salman Ibrahim. In 2004, Sunrise Investments gave Barack Obama free office space to use during his run for US Senate. Obama the free space primarily as a fundraising hub, but at least five of Obama’s campaign workers are said to have used the office for distribution of campaign lawn signs.]


    [Ibrahim immigrated to the US from Pakistan about 22 years ago. His is a rags-to-riches tale, lifting himself from driving a taxi to becoming a trusted CEO of a financial institution. In 1997, he earned a bachelor degree in accounting from Northeastern Illinois University and became a CPA. Sunrise Equities, founded in 2001 by Amjed Mahmood and Dr. Mohammed Akbar Zahid, recruited Ibrahim to set up sharia-compliant investment services because of his knowledge of finance. The Chicago Journal reported that Ibrahim “quickly became the company’s CEO and president, advising neighborhood banks on mortgage and other programs in accordance with Islamic laws that prohibit interest-bearing loans, and getting those programs sanctioned by Islamic scholars.”]

    ‘American Leaders Confront Call by British Jihadist Cleric for a Muslim “Revolution”; Imam Reportedly Arriving in Washington to Urge Establishment of Shariah Law in America

    Washington, D.C., February 24, 2011 — A coalition of American groups and leaders are expressing deep concern about recent reports that British jihadists Imam Anjem Choudary, Abu Issadeen and Sayful Islam, have announced that they will arrive in Washington next week to lead a rally calling on American Muslims to establish Shariah Islamic law and an ‘Islamic state in America‘.’

    Ginger, thanks.

    Mr. Obama´s racism, sympathy for Islam, black liberation theology, and hatred for America 24/7/365 have effectively OVERRULED the US Constitution.

    Arrest Mr. Obama for TREASON.

    “When a leader’s only means of staying in power is to use mass violence against his own people, he has lost the legitimacy to rule and needs to do what is right for his country by leaving now….”

    So Obama is stepping down?

  • bg



    did you hear what our honorary member of the MB, namely Gates,
    announced to the world the other day, or should i ask, did see you
    the white flag of surrender he waved at civilizations nemesis, namely

    [“In my opinion, any future Defense secretary who advises the president
    to again send a big American land army into Asia or into the Middle East or
    Africa should ‘have his head examined,’ as General MacArthur so delicately
    put it,” Gates said.]

    now compare those words with these from, imho, a very wise man..

    A Democrat’s Triumphal Return to Cairo

    [One political role he’s already playing is as an informal adviser to Obama administration officials, his friends Michael McFaul and Samantha Power, scholars who serve on the National Security Council staff. But he doesn’t mince words about Mr. Obama’s record so far. The president “wasted two and a half years” cozying up to dictators and abandoning dissidents, he says. “Partly to distance himself from Bush, democracy promotion became a kind of bad phrase for him.” He also made the Israeli-Palestinian conflict his top priority, at the expense of pushing for freedom. “By putting the democracy file on hold, on the back burner, he did not accomplish peace nor did he serve democracy,” says Mr. Ibrahim.

    ‘Dislikable as [President Bush] may have been to many liberals, including my own wife, we have to give him credit,” says Mr. Ibrahim. “He started a process of some conditionality with American aid and American foreign policy which opened some doors and ultimately was one of the building blocks for what’s happening now.” That conditionality extended to Mr. Ibrahim: In 2002, the Bush administration successfully threatened to withhold $130 million in aid from Egypt if Mr. Mubarak didn’t release him.

    So what should the White House do? “Publicly endorse every democratic movement in the Middle East and offer help,” he says. The least the administration can do is withhold “aid and trade and diplomatic endorsement. Because now the people can do the job. America doesn’t have to send armies and navies to change the regimes. Let the people do their change.”]

    other than what i’ve been saying (Obama is a proponent of Sharia, and is
    constructing the foundations in America for an eventual Islamic caliphate)
    since the first time ever i heard the name Obama, i don’t know what you

    however, i do somewhat disagree about Barry’s mommy part (there’s a thin line between love & hate, not to mention Oedipus Rex & all that)..
