Be afraid, be very afraid. More of the monster behind the mask. Have you started working on Obama's ouster in 2012? Get to work.
When Libya's riots broke out, I was the first to predict that Obama would do nothing here. First on the story I wrote:
I fear Obama will do and say nothing. Back in July of 2008, I posted that Gaddafi had come out and fully endorsed Obama, going so far as to say: "People in Arab And Islamic World, Africa... May Have Been Involved In Legitimate Contribution Campaigns [to Obama]."
In April 2010, the Libyan president Gaddafi praised Obama here: "Barakeh Obama is friend..." "He is of Muslim descent, his policy should be supported...."
After Gaddafi came to New York and spoke at the UN (!) in 2009, he headed to the Libyan mission for more than an hour and was visited by limelight-loving radical Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan was his only visitor. Farrakhan has a special relationship with Obama's pastor of twenty years, Jeremiah Wright. Gaddafi pal and Jew-hating firebrand Louis Farrakhan labeled Obama "the hope of the entire world" and compared him to the founder of the Nation of Islam, the group Farrakhan heads (Associated Press, February 25).
I was not wrong. Obama's absence speaks volumes. This is the same spineless, gutless pattern he practiced before he was President. Barack Hussein Obama had missed 314 (24%) out of 1,300 roll call votes since Jan. 6, 2005.
(NY Post) — The UN Security Council convened an emergency session yesterday to draft sanctions against Libyan mad- dog Moammar Khadafy.
But as the UN struggled to put out the fires in the Mideast, America’s top UN rep was nowhere to be found.
In fact, US Ambassador Susan Rice was 8,000 miles away from UN headquarters, taking tea in South Africa with fellow diplonuts.
Rice flew to sunny Cape Town this week for a “global sustainability” conference to discuss carbon emissions and green economies in the Third World.
It appears there is a pattern developing with Ms. Rice being AWOL for important UN business.

But instead of taking the lead as the United Nations tried to force Khadafy to end his war on his own people, America's top UN official was essentially AWOL.
Which is every bit as shameful as it sounds.
But it's hardly a surprise, given the Obama administration's utter cluelessness in the Middle East of late.
O & Co. have been out to lunch since protests swept dictators out of power in Tunisia and Egypt -- just as they've been slow to act against Khadafy now.
Though maybe it's for the greater good that Rice is an ocean away -- when she shows up for work she seems to do even more damage.
Case in point: Just a week ago, she vetoed an anti-Israel resolution in the Security Council, but immediately unleashed a loathsome attack on Israel, damaging US ties with the Jewish state.
Her disappearance now sends an odd message to a close ally:
When it's time to bash Israel, Rice stays put. When it's time to get to work on Libya, her deputy can pick up the pieces.
Again, back in the real world, Libya's dictator has turned warplanes and helicopter gunships on his own people.
America's ambassador has been off in Susan Rice-land. Maybe it would be better if she stayed there for good.
(HuffPo) — . . . Missing the only Security Council meeting on the Middle East revolution was not Rice’s first absence from high profile UN business. Rice was absent when the UN held an emergency Security Council meeting on Israel’s raid of a ship headed to Gaza and when Iran was elected to the UN Women’s Commission. Rice also failed to speak out when Libya was elected to the UN Human Rights Council in May 2010.
She sure had plenty of time to devote to that anti-Jewish statement several weeks ago, didnt she? Regrettably, indeed.
