With surprising speed, President Barack Obama went from straddling the fence on Libya to ordering military strikes, along with European allies, with the threat of more to come.
The President’s decision comes on top of a military stretched to the limit with military on the ground in Afghanistan and Iraq and a lingering recession at home.
Obama claimed military action was not his “first choice” and said American ground troops would not be sent into Kuwait.
And while a Rasmussen poll shows Americans, in general, supporting military action against Libya, liberal Democrats in Congress question the Constitutionality of Obama’s actions with one — Ohio’s Dennis Kucinich — saying the President’s actions might be “impeachable offenses.”
Politico.Com reports that Kucinich is also questioning why Democratic leaders didn’t object when told of Obama’s plan.
