Obama authorized military action against Libya

Will the Left question Obama about this Libyan War the same way they questioned Bush?
Will they ask Obama:
* What is our exit strategy in Libya?
* Did Obama order invasion to get Libya’s oil? (“No blood for oil!”)
* What is our mission there?
* What does victory look like in Libya?
* Does he care about the collateral damage?
* Did he get approval from Congress?
* Shouldn’t there be a 9-month debate before attacking?
* Should we attack a sovereign nation?
* Are we the world police?
* Should we attack Libya without a declaration of war?
* Can we afford this war?
* Can we fight so many wars at the same time?
* Will Libya be a quagmire?
* Should we attack Mu’ammar Al-Qadhafi when he did not attack us?
* Is Obama now in favor of “nation building”?

UPDATE 3/20/2011:
Obama Bombs Libya Without Telling Congress:
“On Saturday, President Obama while visiting Brazil launched a United Nations war without obtaining Congressional approval. We all must remember how the left crucified President George W. Bush over a 9 month debate concerning war with Iraq. This debate included multiple UN Resolutions and a Multi-National Force composed of dozens of nations. Many refer to this time of debate as a “rush to war.” Yesterday however, President Obama approved the launch of Tomahawk missiles effectively engaging us in a Libyan civil war. This decision came with no debate in Congress and one UN Resolution that was only voted on 48 hours before.”
