Obama dodges Libya questions until tomorrow

Washington (CNN) – The unrest in Libya has been a big focus of the Obama administration, but the president himself has avoided taking any questions on the violence or embattled leader Colonel Moammar Gadhafi.

As Mr. Obama wrapped up a surprise visit to the briefing room Wednesday where he expressed outrage over the attack in Frankfurt, Germany that killed two Americans, CNN asked if he had “anything to say on Libya?”

    what is wrong with todays media?? international engagements and decisions involving military conflicts are not in black and white its a complex situation and its best not show the enemy ur hand sometimes its best u play ur cards close to ur chest. All this republicans and fox news pundits loosely talkin about no fly zones do u guys realise u have to take down libya's military and air defenses and also establish some kind of base inside libya for that to be effective. we are bogged down and stretched in two conflicts we better get this decision right. And u cannot arm the opposition until u understand them let us not forget history where we have armed rebels only for them to turn aginst us case in point al quaeda of today.

    We need to learn to stay out of other countries affairs. Egypt did just fine without our meddling and so will Libya. Only the people of Libya have the right to force their leader out. Haven't we learned anything at all from our meddling in Iraq and the endless war in Afghanistan? Seriously, how short are our childish memories? If we are worried about oil for our precious cars, why don't we stop driving so much, which will create a glut on the market. I own a car, which I don't drive anymore than I have to as I live in a suburban area. I take as much public transportation as I can so the price of gas does not really upset me all that much. It is a good, free feeling.

    He's dodging the questions because, like everything else he's dealing with, he doesn't have a clue what to do. He's so in over his head, and has been since day one, that he's not only screwed up on everthing he's done to the economy, but he's made a fool of himself and our country. 2012 can't come soon enough.

    Obummie couldn't answer the question on Libya because he hadn't been programmed and didn't have his teleprompter so he could read the answer. The 3am phone call is still ringing. Obummie is a disgrace.

    Your right Mr.President, we need leaders that are intel enough to think things out, instead of Repugs wanting more war. Thanks for being smart on our countrys behalf!!! We dont need to "Spawn" anymore islamic Jihad! Thank God Bush and Chaney are gone.
