A satirical look at Obama’s presidency

Life in Obama’s World
Americans should be worried
On Saturday, March 19 France led an attack on Libya, as part of coalition forces in Operation Odyssey Dawn.
The attack was carried out pursuant to U.N. Security Council Resolution 1973, which is aimed to “protect the Libyan people from their ruler.”
Operation Odyssey Dawn was preceded by the following statements from President Barack Hussein Obama:
At 18:22 GMT President Obama began a speech on Libya.
At 18:25 GMT President Obama included the following statement in his speech, justifying the impending attack:
[Gadhafi] has “lost the confidence of his own people and the legitimacy to lead. Left unchecked, we have every reason to believe that Gadhafi would commit atrocities against his people.”
Loss of confidence?
Oh, oh… if this is true, then we are next!
Let’s take a look at the dramatic loss of confidence by the American people, as detailed in the deteriorating history of President Obama’s approval index, from January 21, 2009 to March 21, 2011.
If President Obama’s analogy of the Libyan situation is correct– what will happen if this dramatic loss of confidence in our president is “left unchecked”? Seriously.
Here are today’s Rasmussen Reports, which have been strongly endorsed by the media– including liberals, such as lawyer and political commentator, Susan Estrich:
President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, and U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton
Paris, March 14-15, 2011
No wonder Madame Clinton does not want a second term as Secretary of State!
Now, let’s think this through.
If the objective of United Nations Resolution 1973 is “to protect the Libyan people from their ruler” — does this mean that the United Nations will continue to take out bad guys– until there’s hardly anyone left at the U.N.?
Let’s just name a few:
Angola, Bahrain, Bolivia, China, Iran… Vietnam, Zimbabwe (whose murderous president, Robert Mugabe, referred to former U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown, as “a little dot on this planet”) etc., etc., etc.
And then of course, there is Communist Cuba– sitting 90 miles across the Strait of Florida, where horrible human rights violations have taken place for 52 years.
And what does the United Nations do?
It honors Cuba’s government by naming one of its communist agents as a vice president of the United Nations Human Rights Council– along with Angola!
According to President Obama, loss of confidence in a leader justifies U.N. Resolution 1973.
Obama should be consistent. The United Nations list of members includes many countries ruled by despots.
