The perfect time for Obama to "wag the dog" is a strike on Libya's terrorists just before a presidential debate!
Forget all the lies and incompetence the Obama Administration has demonstrated over the killing of four American diplomatic personnel in Libya. Remember that the Chicago crowd lives by the dictum "let no crisis go to waste."
While we are all scratching our heads wondering how this Obama dares criticize Mitt Romney as the guy who "shoots first, aim later" the Administration may very well be planning a military response to the attacks. After all, multiple reports confirm that the attackers and their location are well known. So, what's the delay in going after them? Would it have anything to do with politics?
It's not hard to imagine a scenario where Obama is starting to feel the heat from Romney in the first debate with the polls turning in favor of the GOP. With two debates to go (schedule) I'd say it's a safe bet that we see action taken before the last debate if not sooner.
Obama stakes his claim to be a strong president on the fact that the gave the final OK to kill Bin Laden. Never mind that killing bin Laden is NOT a substitute for foreign policy or national defense! He'll make the same play again if he finds himself in a corner.
However, failure to protect our Ambassador and to project a coherent policy in the Middle East and elsewhere won't be erased because of another successful military operation. It's not like Obama is pulling the trigger. To the contrary, his Administration is pulling the rug out from under the U.S. Military!
