Gaddafi's fall: the House is careful with press releases

Eric Ostermeier analyses press releases concerning Gaddafi's fall.

So, Ostermeier found, after reviewing all of the press releases (53) celebrating the demise of Gaddafi, some congratulating the Libyan people, some saluting the work of the U.S. military, that only six Dems and one Republican felt able to direct any praise toward the Obama Administration for its role, and the one Republican took extra effort to make sure it was clear that his praise was not for Obama personally.
