First Nancy Pelosi at a press conference yesterday, and now Obama at a press conference with the Swedish Prime Minister today have shamelessly denied Obama’s setting a red line on Syrian use of chemical weapons. Stunning in its lack of veracity, but entirely in character. Clearly, this guy and his Progressive minions cannot be trusted.
Today, the party's talking point is that the red line wasn’t Obama’s red line, it was “humanity’s” red line and the “world’s” red line respectively. Well, at least he didn’t blame Bush or the Republicans—yet. If it weren’t so mendacious and embarrassing, it would be laughable. Like a spoiled, narcissistic child, this guy can’t take responsibility for anything he does wrong. So much for principle and integrity. He absolutely possesses neither.
Terribly botched by our amateurish Commander-in-Chief from the beginning, the incompetence, mixed signals and woeful lack of White House leadership notwithstanding, on balance I still tend to support a better-late-then-never punitive and clearly defined military intervention in Syria designed to significantly degrade and deter Assad’s military assets, the underlying objective being to discourage like-minded violations by North Korea and Iran. Is it too late? I guess that remains to be seen.
Tragically, however, the Administration's having stupidly telegraphed our intended plan of attack, Syria is now rapidly shifting target locations and protecting them with human shields, an action which will surely result in otherwise avoidable collateral damage while minimizing our attack’s effectiveness.
What a terrible and entirely avoidable mess this feckless, unprincipled so-called President has perpetrated on the United States and a Free World still stunned by his embarrassing ineptitude and dishonesty.
Always the self-serving cynical politician with a penchant for blaming others, Obama is now asking Congress for authorization to act. But, adding to the endless muddle, in the same breath he asserts that if Congress votes against action, he will unilaterally take action anyway. Huh?
Anyone who trusts this guy's stability, maturity or integrity must be brain-dead.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a clear-headed grown-up--a statesman--in the White House again? Well, we can dream.
