From Day One, listen to what the President said to the Muslim World.

Less than six months later he went to Cairo, the heart of the Arab World, and said it loud a clear.

Then came the Arab Spring.

Of course the jewel in the crown, the goal of the Global War on Terror, the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

After six months of NATO's Operation Odyssey Dawn led by the US, UK and France, the madman Qaddafi goes down.  The dictator that escaped Reagan, he who was responsible for the Pan Am 103 disaster and was ultimately coddled by George W. Bush has now fallen.

Republicans claim that Ronald Reagan tore down the Soviet empire.  Jus' sayin'

But what really rub the Republicans the wrong way is how Obama's results in Libya have compared to Bush's failures in Iraq.

'Libya will go down in history as the anti-Iraq'

They claimed that he could not answer the 3 AM call.  Turns out that he's the guy making the calls.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
