Jon says we've been accustomed to the "run-up" to war, he says Obama shoulda made his case for war on Qaddafi.
Jon says he understands there was a time constraint, but it was a time constraint of a few weeks. I'm not sure I understand Jon here. Qaddafi's rebels were about to trounce on Benghazi. It was the right time to act. No time to get the approval of the Congress. Maybe he could have taken a vote, and maybe he shoulda, but I think Obama did the right thing given that the rebels were about to be crushed by Qaddafi's forces.
But many left-leaning politicians in America are nevertheless unhappy with Obama.
