Republican strategist Karl Rove lambasted President Barack Obama’s Monday speech on Libya, pointing out contradictions, confusing statements and lies in an article published in the Wall Street Journal’s opinion pages.

“In fact, the administration dithered for over two weeks. Mr. Obama claimed, 'At my direction, America led an effort to create a no-fly zone . . . to protect the Libyan people.’ In truth, the direction and leadership came from the French, the British, and even the Arab League. Thank goodness French President Nicolas Sarkozy and British Prime Minister David Cameron had the brass to push for bombing. Otherwise Mr. Obama still might be contemplating action, not taking it.”

Rove said the president’s stance weakens American.

“This is a chief executive who is willing America into a subordinate, non-leadership role in world affairs, who sees the United States as an ordinary nation,” he said. “This is a potentially toxic political brew for any politician, but most especially for a commander in chief.”
