Surprised that we haven't heard a peep out of the dozen or so GOP candidates for president regarding the apparent toppling of the Libyan dictator Qaddafi? Why do you think that is? So many of the GOP wanted us to do more earlier, but the "troops on the ground" way of thinking from 10 years ago is what got this country into the mess we're in.
Guessing that there isn't anything for this lame group to criticize so they're staying low. Good thinking. It's either that or they simply need to brush up on geography AND foreign policy. (Take it from Sara Palin — it's best to keep your mouth shut when you don't know what you're talking about!)
Regardless, the silence really is golden. For as long as it will last.
