It's Getting Hard To Be Outraged

Here's a quote from our President from the Organizing for America website. It's part of an interview he did in El Salvador about Libya.
"And that’s why building this international coalition has been so important because it means that the United States is not bearing all the cost. It means that we have confidence that we are not going in alone, and it is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions that are important not only to us, but are important internationally."
Emphasis mine.

I'm not sure if there's anything left to say any more. Which angle do you take with this? The naievete? The incompetence? The gullibility? The ignorance? The smug and smarmy moral superiority?

Obama needs to be the head of the UN. Seriously. Get him out of here and put him in a spot where he can pontificate and preen and pose, where he can live in his land of make-believe that he's actually accomplishing something with his vapid speeches.

Bonus point: Given that China and Russian do not have our best interests at heart, why did they abstain from voting on the UN resolution about the no-fly zone? Could it be that their geopolitical strategists are better than Obama's and they saw this as a disaster in the making?
