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.

The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much, it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.~Franklin D. Roosevelt
