The Opposite of Whatever Obama Is Doing, Part II


Florida congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen on February 26:

"[S]tronger penalties must be imposed in order to hold the [Qaddafi] regime accountable for its heinous crimes, and to prevent further violence against the Libyan people. Additional U.S. and international measures should include the establishment and enforcement of a no-fly zone."

Ros-Lehtinen on March 19, the day the military strikes on Libya began:

"The bottom line is you’ve gotta ask what is the U.S. security interest in getting involved in Libya,” said Ros-Lehtinen. “Because there’s unrest everywhere. Today it's Libya, tomorrow it will be somewhere else .... We are broke and that’s why we have to be selective about where we’re going and why we’re going."

Maybe she's running for president?
