I’m prayed up. I’ve worshipped my King this day and I’m feeling curious about my life this week. I know my plans need to be flexible because my job demands I’m available all the time. I want to be well informed about what is happening. The fact is, we are at war: War in three countries. Men and women are placing there lives on the line for my life. There is no greater love than this. This is what God has said.

This latest battle was all about timing. It was about decisive actions and focused clout. It was doing what was being asked of us in a way that assured greatest success. So we have been waiting. Waiting for our President to tell us just what is this new conflict about. There was no Oval Office speech. There was a South American trip. There was no news conference: that was canceled, leaving reporters dumbfounded, and the American people to guess what was going on by what the press allowed us to see. We sure did not see much we wanted to see, I can tell you that for sure.

How much grace will we afford this President? Would anyone be upset had this been a Republican President? It’s been more than a week folks. A Freaking WEEK!

ABC News had Defense Secretary Bill Gates on “This Week” along with Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.  In that interview they are asked, “Do you think Libya posed an actual or imminent threat to the United States?”
“No, no,” Gates said in a joint appearance with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “It was not -- it was not a vital national interest to the United States, but it was an interest and it was an interest for all of the reasons Secretary Clinton talked about. The engagement of the Arabs, the engagement of the Europeans, the general humanitarian question that was at stake,” he said.
Gates explained that there was more at stake, however. “There was another piece of this though, that certainly was a consideration. You've had revolutions on both the East and the West of Libya,” he said, emphasizing the potential wave of refugees from Libya could have destabilized Tunisia and Egypt.
“So you had a potentially significantly destabilizing event taking place in Libya that put at risk potentially the revolutions in both Tunisia and Egypt,” the Secretary said. “And that was another consideration I think we took into account.”
During his campaign for the Presidency, in December, 2007, Barack Obama told The Boston Globe that “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”
Earlier in 2007, then-Senator Hillary Clinton said in a speech on the Senate floor that, “If the administration believes that any -- any -- use of force against Iran is necessary, the President must come to Congress to seek that authority.”

At this point, I would just like answers:

One cognizant message coming from… maybe even two people…would be nice. We are all over the map with this guy and the message changes from hour to person to hour to person. It’s incoherent.  But this is getting well down the freeway from ridicules now and we are in “What-the-heck-are-you-doing-ville.”  The accomplice press is like deer in headlights. They won’t ask the man tough questions they’d ask…most anybody else. This is just pie in the sky worship. Having us believe this President is so intellectual, so nuanced, that we are not ready to hear Him Speak the Words!

We need leadership Mr. President. You can’t seem to lead. You talk for days and days and then we get six different messages. You get hacked off because some your own party is calling your actions impeachable and are asking how this is not an impeachable offence to The Constitution. You go on a trip to Rio as men and women are placed in harms way. You play golf and have state dinners and the American People are in the dark as to why you did this so slowly if your intent was to do it all along?
You, Mr. President, are creating chaos where none need exist.
I pray for you each night. Are you listening to God sir?
You see, I wonder about that. If you were listening to God,
you would be decisive and focused and our in front where leaders go.
You were absent when your country need answers Mr. President.
You are failing U.S.
                     Mr. President.

Obama is failing, BIG FAIL! The man is so clueless and neglecting to lead at a time when it is needed. He has handled this whole Libya situation all wrong. There is no good, justifiable reason for us to be in Libya.
