Barack Obama: War Pig

Remember when Obama became famous for voting against the Iraq invasion?

With military action against Syria set to begin within hours, according to reports, President Barack Obama and his administration are determining what legal route to take in order to justify the attack. According to NBC News White House reporter Chuck Todd, the administration is leery of seeking Congressional support for a mission in Syria because Congress many decline to bless such an operation. Now, according to reports from POLITICO’s Glenn Thrush, Obama may seek to avoid the American people as well.

Thrush reported on Wednesday that, based on his conversations with aides to the president, Obama will not address the American people about the mission in Syria before hostilities commence. Thrush reports that Obama’s advisors believe addressing Americans from the gravity of the Oval Office or the East Room is “passé.” Furthermore, most Americans who care about the mission in Syria will learn the logic behind it from cable news.

If I had voted for Obama I’d be even more pissed than I am now.

    The Saudis have apparently judged President Obama to be rudderless in his Middle East policies, judging by their recent diplomatic moves toward Russia: They appear to have plied Putin with a deal to collude in the global oil market, while also urging him to distance himself from Syria’s Butcher Assad.

    What really confuses me, the very people who criticized Bush policy voted for Obama who doubled down on Bush mistakes, but they still blame Bush ?

    Candidate Obama:

    I would meet directly with Syrian leaders. We would engage in a level of aggressive personal diplomacy in which a whole host of issues are on the table. We’re not looking at Iraq, just in isolation. Iran and Syria would start changing their behavior if they started seeing that they had some incentives to do so, but right now the only incentive that exists is our president suggesting that if you do what we tell you, we may not blow you up.

    My belief about the regional powers in the Middle East is that they don’t respond well to that kind of bluster. They haven’t in the past, there’s no reason to think they will in the future. On the other hand, what we know, is that, for example, in the early days of our Afghanistan offensive, the Iranians we’re willing to cooperate when we had more open lines of dialogue and we were able to identify interests that were compatible with theirs.”

    Funny how no one is mentioning the 3rd debate when Romney said there was trouble brewing in Syria, that it was going to be a problem within the next year and the USA should undertake some proactive steps to see who there would be aligned with our interests so we could be prepared, etc, etc all of which Obama sneeringly dismissed with “What do you want to do — start another war?” while the intellectual pygmies in the MSM cheered.

      It’s stomach turning. I was talking to my neighbor about this very topic this morning.

      Someone needs to make a ‘miss me yet’ graphic/video with all the things Romney was right about.
