Obama: Too busy filling out his March Madness bracket to lead on Libya

My latest in the NY Daily News:

It's time for Obama pick a side. If he wants Khadafy out, like he claims he does, he should side with the rebels. He should stress that they are the greatest hope for overthrowing an enemy of the U.S. who has killed Americans through terrorism, most notoriously the Lockerbie bombing.

He could say something like, "The United States of America will not allow Col. Khadafy to prevail against his own people," backing up his words by sending, with NATO's complete cooperation, aircraft carriers to the region. That should get the dictator packing his bags for, say, Venezuela.
