A baffled world is still trying to figure out exactly what caused Barack Obama (described by many as a "loner") to go on a sudden, unexplained shooting spree in Libya.
Among those a bit hazy about the alleged president's motivations and goals are the members of his hastily-assembled "international coalition" to prosecute the war, which includes Arab states that thought the action would consist only of jamming Libya's radar rather than firing off million-dollar American cruise missiles like they were ten-cent bottle rockets.
Republicans are demanding answers about what the heck the actual goal of the mission is, since Mr. Obama has remained coy on the subject.
And Democrats are not only questioning the constitutionality of the entire action, but are suggesting that it may be time to impeach the previously Chosen One. Or failing that, at least take a much closer look at the whole "birth certificate" thing.
In any event, anyone looking for answers had better look fast. Mr. Obama has already announced that he plans to "transition" the actual work of fighting the war to his international "partners," and end his personal involvement in the Libyan theater of war "in a matter of days and not a matter of weeks."
Because like a child easily bored with a new toy, his attention span just can't handle anything longer.
