HDR 185: Why Libya Matters – Now More Than Ever
ALOHA, ALL!! While Barry is basking in the Martha’s Vineyard sunshine and the news of Gaddafi’s apparent fall, he can’t claim “mission accomplished” yet. Of course, his fans are giving him high praise for helping oust Gaddafi without putting American boots on the ground (remember….this was a “Kinetic Military Action” and not a war.) On the other hand assuming that Gaddafi is indeed gone, the truly difficult phase is ahead. (UPDATE: FOX NEWS REPORTS THAT GADDAFI’S SON IS ALIVE AND WELL.) Mike Rogers (R – MI) was interviewed by Brett Baier today – Rogers is Chair of the House Select Intelligence Committee. His insightful comments explain why we should be worried about the next phase in Libya. Call me crazy, but why do I think Barry is not up to the task?

Could “Two and a Half Men” Be Gaddafi’s Next Gig? He could play the half-man:
Michelle Malkin » Swamp Queen Maxine Waters makes taxpayers’ lives hell (Michelle gives an update on Queen Maxine’s so-called ethics trial)
Obama administration works to rekindle excitement among Hispanic voters – The Washington Post (excellent example of “watch what the other hand is doing.” 160 Hispanic leaders spent 2 days at the White House, left with a 33-page book of talking points, while we were debating the debt ceiling.)
