- Obama: I did not set a red line. The international community did.
- Less than eight hours later John Kerry says: The President drew the red line.
…we don’t have enough money in the military budget to allow the Blue Angels to perform or to give military members the 1% pay raise they were due…..
….but we do have enough money to bomb Syria.
How does that work?
- Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz : From the briefings that I’ve received, there are dozens of countries who are going to stand with the United States, who will engage with us on military action and also that back us up.
- Question: Who are those countries? Can you name one?
- Debbie Wasserman Schultz: I'm not at liberty to say.
…went on a radio show this morning and they were talking about Obama requesting authorization to strike Syria from Congress.
She expressed doubt that, at this time anyway, Obama will receive authorization at which time the radio host asked if it would be a good idea if Obama attacked Syria after being denied authorization from Congress.
She replied by saying that Obama would “be in real trouble” if he did that since no previous President has launched an attack after being denied authorization by Congress.
But then she added this kicker.
She said that if Obama ignores Congress and does attack Syria he could still be saved and “it’ll be because of loyalty of Democrats. They just don’t want to see him shamed and humiliated on the national stage.”
She then dropped them ringer:
"At the, at the moment, that’s the only reason I would vote for it if I could vote on it."
So she’d vote to have our military strike another country for no reason other than she doesn’t want Obama to be shamed and humiliated on the national stage.
Not because it’s the right thing to do or because it’s justified but only because she doesn’t want Obama to look bad.
Barack Hussein Obama rose to power by attacking—in a somewhat apocryphal 2002 speech—what he called George Walker Bush’s “dumb war” in Iraq. Let us compare Obama’s approach to Syria with Bush’s in Iraq.
1.Bush in Iraq: Attacked an evil regime isolated for over a decade by both Democrats and Republicans.
Obama in Syria: Wants to attack an evil regime coddled for six years by Democrats and the White House.
2.Bush in Iraq: Attacked after UN inspectors turned away, in violation of Security Council resolutions.
Obama in Syria: Announced plans to attack before any inspections, and in fact opposed UN inspections.
3.Bush in Iraq: Attacked after UN Security Council deadlocked on authorization for use of force.
Obama in Syria: Has not attempted to obtain UN Security Council authorization for use of force.
4.Bush in Iraq: Attacked after building multinational “coalition of the willing” with Britain.
Obama in Syria: Plans to attack without multinational coalition and after British rejection of war.
5.Bush in Iraq: Sought authorization from Congress first, before going to UN or planning any attack.
Obama in Syria: Opposed authorization from Congress until “red line” & attack were already announced.
6.Bush in Iraq: Attacked Iraq as part of War on Terror against Al Qaeda and affiliated groups.
Obama in Syria: Says “War on Terror” is over, is arming Islamist groups allied with Al Qaeda.
7.Bush in Iraq: Clear objectives, including regime change to replace dictatorship with democracy.
Obama in Syria: No clear objectives, formal opposition to any direct effort at regime change.
8.Bush in Iraq: Acted before Saddam Hussein could threaten neighbors or his own people.
Obama in Syria: Acting after Bashar al-Assad has slaughtered 100,000 Syrians, threatened neighbors.
9.Bush in Iraq: Attacked after moving strategic U.S. military assets to the region to protect U.S. allies.
Obama in Syria: Acting after “pivot to Asia,” after military sequester, and despite risks to allies.
10.Bush in Iraq: Gave up golf for the rest of his presidency while U.S. troops still in combat.
Obama in Syria: Went golfing (again) after announcing new Syria policy.
..and called it “Rose of the desert”.
The glowing article praised the Assads as a “wildly democratic” family-focused couple who vacation in Europe, foster Christianity, are at ease with American celebrities, made theirs the “safest country in the Middle East,” and want to give Syria a “brand essence.”
Strangely enough, when Syria fell under the boorish glare of the Obama administration, the butt kissing article vanished.
Nothing says journalistic integrity like a little ‘1984’ style Ministry of Truth tactics in an attempt to try and not walk around with egg on your face.
- John Kerry in 2004: George Bush is bad because he rushed to war without letting UN Inspectors finish their jobs and he was wrong for striking Iraq without a broad and deep coalition of allies joining the action!!
- John Kerry in 2013: Barack Obama is awesome and doesn't need to wait for UN inspectors to finish their job in Syria because their investigation "can’t tell us anything . . . that we don’t already know" and Obama is displaying unique and strong leadership by striking Syria with no international coalition because it “will ensure that the United States of America makes our own decisions on our own timelines based on our values and our interests,” unconstrained by other countries’ opinions.
Yesterday, the White House released a photo of the Child King and his court inside the situation room and, supposedly, discussing the overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
A CBS News reporter noticed the very curious absence of the US Secretary of State, John Kerry, from the gaggle on sycophants bumbling around the table and went looking for him and, maybe not so surprisingly, found him on his wife’s yacht.
When the State Department was asked about where Kerry was, they reacted in the typical Obama Administration fashion….they lied.
But the State Department said Kerry was not aboard a boat on Wednesday and has spent the day working the phones on Egypt. “Since his plane touched down in Washington at 4 a.m., Secretary Kerry was working all day and on the phone dealing with the crisis in Egypt,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
Unfortunately for them, another reporter had the common sense to visit the playground of the well-off and took a picture of Kerry working the State Department hotline…and when I say ‘State Department hotline’ I mean playing on his yacht.
Again, in using the typical Obama Playbook when caught in an “oops”…and when I say ‘oops’ I mean a lie…the State Department responded by saying, “oh…well…uh…okay. Yeah, he was on his yacht but only ‘briefly’.”
Where Kerry was isn’t so important. But the fact that the State Department lies so facilely, and has absolutely no compunction about doing so, does matter.
Of course, “briefly” is another way, again of trying to minimize, when it would appear it was not “brief” at all.
It is why they believe they can get away with lying over matters of great significance, like Benghazi.
But that was yesterday. Today is a new day and, you’d think, our leaders would learn from their mistakes and turn their attention to the matters that they get paid to pay attention to.
Not so much when it comes to people who work for the Obama Administration.
Mosheh, a CBS Producer, saw Kerry on the boat again today.
Likely, it was only “briefly” and doubtless, he is working on Egypt as he steers the boat his wife inherited from her dead husband.
