Former Bush UN Spokesman Grenell: Libya Will Be Huge Victory For Sarkozy

Well, if anyone wanted to know what the spin from the right is going to be on the recent events in Libya now that it looks like Tripoli may be falling to the rebels, and that Gadhafi's son has been arrested, here's some of the initial reporting from Fox "News."

Fox's Gregg Jarrett brought on former Bush UN Spokesman Richard Grenell for some "fair and balanced" discussion on whether President Obama will be given any credit if Gadhafi goes down. Naturally he said no, because those on the right are never going to give the president credit for anything. Instead Grenell said this would be a huge victory for France and for French President Nicholas Sarkozy.

I wasn't happy about our decision to go in there in the first place because of how many things could go wrong and I didn't want to see us end up occupying another country when we're going after the social safety nets for Americans because of the claims that we're supposedly broke (which we aren't), but said at the time if things worked out well, I'd be more than happy to be proven wrong. I don't think we'll have an answer to that for some time to come since no one knows how this is ultimately going to turn out for the Libyan people even if they do get rid of Gadhafi.

In Fox World however, everything is always bad for President Obama and the Democrats no matter what happens though. That's just the way they roll. If this were the Bush administration and it looked like we might finally be rid of Gadhafi, they'd be cheering him on like they did during the invasion of Iraq and there's not a chance in hell they'd be giving the French credit for anything.

It's so nice to see them getting some "unbiased" opinion on the matter from someone who worked for George W. Bush when we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq on our current foreign policy.
