Obama: Libya "Fuss" Is About "Politics"

President Obama responds to a question about the Constitutionality about U.S. involvement in Libya:

"We have had 10 hearings on it. We have sent reams of information on what the operations are. I have had all members over to talk about it. So, a lot of this fuss is about politics. And if you look, substantively, at what we have done, we have done exactly what we said we would do under the UN mandate. And we have protected thousands in the process, and as a consequence, a guy who was a state sponsor terrorist by America is pinned down and the noose is tightening around him."

Obama also jabs Republicans for "defend[ing]" Gaddafi:

"We have engaged in a limited operation to help a lot of people against one of the worst tyrants in the world. Somebody who nobody would want to -- defend. We should be sending a unified message to this guy to step down and give his citizens a chance to live without fear."
