Whatever one might think of the prospect of US military action in Syria, it seems that the White House has had trouble gathering support because everyone in the Obama administration comes across as a lying, dithering, unserious, incompetent buffoon. For example, as the NY Times reported,
Secretary of State John Kerry, delivering a full-throated defense on Sunday of President Obama’s plan to delay military action against Syria, called the move to seek Congressional approval a “courageous decision”.
How, pray tell, is Obama’s decision to follow his constitutional duties as president in any way “courageous”? Actually, in all of this, Obama comes across more as brave Sir Robin than anything else.
