At MPOW, one class explores the concept of “just war”. Which, of course, leads to the question of Libya. I can't say it better than Jon Stewart, so...go watch the video, ok? I'll wait.
I've argued elsewhere that there's little in their backgrounds to separate Presidents Bush (43) and Obama... and as the 2012 election season opens, I reiterate my statement. I'm still waiting to feel the frisson of inspiration that others seem to feel about Pres. Obama – every time he has an opportunity to inspire, to lift his rhetoric to the level of Rev. King, President Kennedy and others, he fails. He lectures, he explains, but he doesn't inspire.
It's going to be a long election season, and with the addition of Libya to our problems, it'll seem even longer.
