Horrible… Obama Smears Bush While Discussing Libya in Chile


Barack Obama smeared Bush while discussing Libya in Chile.
The Plum Line reported, via FOX Nation:

In Chile, Obama puts forth his doctrine, defending the Libya mission by claiming that humanitarian interventionism is the “core principle that has to be upheld.”

Crucially, Obama also took a tacit shot at Bush, comparing his own multilateral approach favorably to the former president’s:

“In the past there have been times when the United States acted unilaterally or did not have full international support, and as a consequence typically it was the United States military that ended up bearing the entire burden.”

Not only was it an awful cheap shot, it wasn’t true.
President Bush had twice as many allies in his Iraqi Coalition than Obama has in Libya.

If he’s going to slam Bush, shouldn’t he at least have his facts right?
