The President has ended the war in Iraq; eliminated Osama Bin Laden and much of Al-Qaeda’s top tier; and led the world in liberating Libya at the cost of not a single American life. The Palestinians privately want to see Obama reelected, and the Israelis say he’s a steadfast ally. The Libyans, we are told, actually like us. (“Thank you, America!”)
. . . “Without America, we would not be here,” Ismael Taweel, a businessman, told [Nick Kristof] as he stood by Martyrs’ Square with a huge grin on his face. “I hope there will be more relations between Libya and America now,” he added. That’s a common refrain: Libyans are hungry to rejoin the world. . . .
☞ It’s good to have a strong, deliberate Commander in Chief.*
I held out as long as I could. But we have to get those smug little pigs.
*And, by the way, a magnificent Secretary of State.
