How Far?

Will the nation back al Qaeda in Syria or not? On the eve of 9/11, a date that echoes in American history, an American President is contemplating throwing the nation into combat on the side of the same people who blew up the World Trade Center. 12 years ago, the public would have stormed the White house with staves, torches and pitch forks and would have hung ANY president who suggested that from the nearest light pole.

Today Congress actually considers the matter. That's how far we've fallen.


Obama's Syria policy defined:
(Krauthammer) “Look this isn't a sudden stroke of constitutionalism, this is simply expediency and delay," he continued. "The problem is not that he's not selling his strategy, it's that he doesn't have a strategy, and that's the reason everybody left, right and center has no idea what he's doing. He zig-zags left and right, he telegraphs he's going to strike, he does nothing, he calls in the Congress and then he goes off and plays golf, when his secretary of state had given a speech a day before with remarkable urgency and passion.”
Elections have consequences. We'd be a lot better off if he just golfed all day...in Kenya.

  1. It's getting to the point where it might be worth getting him to leave office right now with a full pardon and a cool half billion dollar severance payment. It would likely be cheaper in the long run.

    1. That plus the billion he has in his campaign chest that he'll keep would keep him for the rest of his days. It would be a cheap solution.

  2. And to think there's a "prominent" Republican calling for even deeper involvement than the President is asking for.

    1. Maybe those Republicans need to join the president in a multi-year golf vacation in Mombassa too.

  3. Concur with the LONG vacation, how about until Jan 2017?

    1. Or even beyond if necessary. Nobody wants the elder statesman Obama on the rubber chicken circuit.
