Mark Steyn on Obama in Libya; We don’t need DC’s approval, we’ve got the Arab League!


Via Gateway Pundit, guess Mark Steyn was on Hannity tonight (I missed it, I was….ADD…) talking about the Obama 2012 Campaign Kickoff Speech;

Author columnist Mark Steyn told Sean Hannity tonight that regarding Obama’s leadership on the Libyan kinetic military man-caused disaster:

“I believe it’s a Canadian general who’s actually running the show. I said I thought it should be a Mexican general because as far as this administration is concerned this is clearly one of those jobs that Americans won’t do.”

All the way to the end of the clip Steyn says; “Obama’s going around saying: ‘…we don’t need the people’s representatives in Washington – we don’t need their approval; we’ve got the Arab League!'”

Earlier today, El Rushbo as I noted above thought of it more as a campaign speech;

My friends, I have an entirely different take on this speech last night. I don’t know how entirely different it is, now that I think about it. I look at some of the stuff I have in one of my stacks here, various media analyses. I think it’s an incorrect thing to look at Obama’s speech last night as a foreign policy speech. I think it’s a mistake to look at it as a speech on Libya and the war or “kinetic military activity.” He didn’t say “war.” I think the only proper way to look at this speech last night was as a campaign speech for 2012. This was a speech designed exclusively for domestic political consumption. This was not a speech about military policy. It was not a speech about foreign policy. It was a speech that Obama waited to give until he had a pretty good idea in his mind of the lay of the land. It was a speech that was given just like pretty much all of Obama’s speeches, a speech in which he’s jockeying for position. It’s all about making him look good. The key to this speech last night was the president of the United States told a known coward, Moammar Khadafy, that the world would be better off if he weren’t part of it.

No I didn’t catch Obama’s speech yesterday, that’s why I pay Steyn, Hannity, and Rush; to listen to that crap for me. My built-in BS detector will notify me if any of the aforementioned are off the mark, and they rarely are.

I listened to much of what Rush had to say yesterday, and I am usually on the same page as Rush, but not yesterday. It may be my imagination but, Rush seemed to be fumbling his words, and his mind seemed to be distracted by something else as he was speaking. I don’t honestly believe that Rush himself believed what he was saying. To reduce the speech to nothing more than a 2012 campaign speech was to ignore some of the critical, and egregious things contained in that speech. Many have rightfully picked up one sentence in particular- “it is… Read more »

Mark Steyn will be filling in for Rush tomorrow and Friday.

I just heard the Osheister is going to be coming to Charlottesville VA this weekend. He is attending some kind of event at UVA, but so far no one knows what. I suspect he will be honoring Jim Galloway, the environmentalist who did the research for the EPA declaring that Nitrogen is a pollutant. He worked with Michael Hockey Stick Mann when he was at UVA also. All FOIA requests for Mann and Galloway info have been denied.

Very sorry for jacking your thread Erick, please forgive me sir.
