The difference between voting present and real leadership.

Two days ago an announcement came from the The United States concerning the violence in Libya, demonstrating our natural position in world leadership saying,

"NATO and our allies should look at establishing a no-fly zone so Libyan air forces cannot continue slaughtering the Libyan people."

Today, NATO officials responded.

NATO forces may attack forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi if the Libyan air force continues to bomb anti-government protesters, the London-based al-Quds al-Arabi reported, citing a European official claiming the US had threatened to intervene in the violence.

It should be noted, however, that the original statement did not come from President Obama. It was not a White House directive nor was it a statement released from Congress.

It came in the form of a Facebook post from a housewife in Wasilla, Alaska.

We posted the full release here: Here’s to Libya’s Freedom

Sarah Palin is not in office, but is she in fact the equivalent of a shadow President? This is what real leadership looks like.

Meanwhile, somewhere hiding out in the White House, Obama voted present.
