Hillary Clinton held a press conference today were she sought to re-confirm once more again the various positions the Obama administration holds on Libya. “Let me be clear,” she said “we are not seeking regime change in Libya. We just want Qadafi (sic) to step down and let the rebels run the country so we can find out who they are.” The Secretary added “I also want to assure you that Barack and I are more or less in complete agreement on that. I want to refudiate the contrary insinuendo that’s coming from the right wing conservative conspiracists, before it becomes a rumor.”
In other news, the Senate, Obama and all the czars have agreed to accept the Republican budget proposal, subject to UN approval, of course. Russia and China indicate they will vote in favor of the measure, saying it will help set America on the path to austerity. However, the Ambassador from England said “NO” to the U.S. request, “Not after the way you returned our bust! We aren’t too happy with the way Michelle patted our Queen on the rump, either.”
Later in the day, the President went to the White House gym to dribble, and shoot a few hoops. He winked and said “It relieves the stress, you know.”

HILLARY IN THE MIDDLE
Friday’s online Africa edition of the New York Times led with this headline, “Obama Takes Hard Line With Libya After Shift by Clinton”. (emphasis ours). The attack on Libya is being dubbed “Hillary’s War”.
Coincidentally, anti-war protests were held in several cities yesterday, including one at the White House where some were arrested. We say coincidentally because they were protesting the Iraq war, not the decision to launch an attack on Libya. Then it occurred to me why it is being framed as Hillary’s War. It’s the 2012 election, stupid!
The Make-Love-Not-War protesters are an important component of Obama’s core constituency. Anti-war, any war, voters are by no means limited to the radical element either. By deferring to the United Nations and the will of Europe, then allowing himself to be boxed in by Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama can claim the decision was taken away from him; that he had no choice but to authorize military action.
