    Grateful the efforts to restrict Libyan funding fell flat on its face.
    The bumbling republican house blew it.

    From CNN:

    Washington (CNN) -- The Republican-controlled House of Representatives delivered a mixed message on America's role in the NATO-led Libya campaign Friday, opposing a resolution expressing support for the war while also voting down a bill restricting American involvement in the conflict.

    The first measure -- similar to legislation introduced in the Senate by Sen. John Kerry, D-Massachusetts, and Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona -- was backed by the White House. It was defeated 123-295, with Republicans overwhelmingly opposing the measure and Democrats voting more narrowly in favor of it.

    Boehner: House not with McCain on Libya

    The second measure was strongly supported by House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and other top GOP leaders. It was defeated 180-238, with Democrats largely voting no as Republicans voted yes by a slimmer margin.

    In short, the House appeared unable to speak with clarity on President Barack Obama's controversial effort to oust Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.

    this seems to be consistant behavior for "the party of NO".

    IT DOESN'T MATTER what the democrats or President obama propose to do in any given situation; the GOP will bellow "NO" !

    come the next elections; this policy of "NO" will bite the republicans on their collective ass.

    The repubs are making fools of themselves by being against things now that Obama is tied to them that they were once for. The public see's through these kind of tactics to win back the white house, its nothing but politics and will come back to bite them.
