An unlikely alliance?

House Speaker John Boehner offered the resolution, approved 268-145, as an alternative to Ohio Democrat Dennis Kucinich’s proposal that would have forced withdrawal of U.S. support for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s Libya mission in 15 days. The House defeated Kucinich’s measure, 265-148.

So is this an unlikely alliance?  A case of keeping your enemy closer than your friends?  Could this possibly lead to any inkling of transparency from this administration about it's own administration?

  • I see it more as telling Obama it's time to s**t or get off the pot over Libya. Right now we are about 1/2 of the NATO force. If we pull out, like Kucinich wants, the alliance would collapse. On the other hand, Obama did not get congress's approval to send our troops there.

    I look at it as putting him on notice. The headline on Drudge called it a "stunning rebuke" to Obama.

  • “What’s got everybody stirred up” is “kind of an arrogance” in Obama’s attitude that “Congress doesn’t really matter,” the California Republican said."

    This is the whole problem with this admin, they do whatever they want to and it's wrong...

  • Agree with DS. Ohh and adnilm, she didn't ask what you personally thought of boehner.

  • Not so much but he surely didn't want to pull the military out right away. Maybe he thougth whe had to have this version because many or the Dems want the soldiers out like yesterday.

  • Boehner's a wimp. Lacks the courage of his convictions...
