gaddafi is a thug, but he’s a clever one. he’s said repeatedly he thinks president obama is a muslim. of course, only the birthers and some tea party activists believe this, but that doesn’t stop gaddafi from hitting the president where it hurts the most in an election year – by giving his opponents ammo. gaddafi recently stated in a letter to the president:
“To our son, his excellency, Mr Baracka Hussein Obama. I have said to you before, that even if Libya and the United States of America enter into a war, god forbid, you will always remain a son. Your picture will not be changed.”
it’s clever rhetoric from a clever dictator. the president will have to dismiss gaddafi’s comments while not alienating the rest of the arab world, yet while not disenfranchising evangelicals in an election year.
