Hagel and Kerry are an embarrassment to Americans across the globe. Someone had to work overtime to seek out individuals of such low level of competence to fill such important cabinet positions. Our worst enemies couldn’t possibly have harmed this country more as has the current Administration.

Obama met with Congressional leaders this morning.

Apparently, per FoxNews, it wasn't much of a sales meeting, because it only lasted about 15 minutes.

==

But, just by meeting with them, Obama has shifted any future blame onto the Congress — more specifically, the Republicans in Congress.

Meanwhile, John McCain is making the rounds to the news programs. He is jumping up and down that the Syrian rebels are not being armed and are, thus, outmatched, because Russia and Iran are helping arm the Assad regime.

==

FoxNews is running the video of the Obama-Congressional leaders conference now.

Obama is giving an opening speech [Not much different that was he said Saturday]. “This is not Iraq and it is not Afghanistan.”

[No. It is Syria. Syria is a different country. Check the elementary school globe. (/snarky remark)]

Obama: “I look forward to listening to the concerns who are here today ...”

Somebody off camera asked a question.

Obama: “... we're going to send a clear message to Assad ... thank you bye [Obama runs out of the room, probably has a T-time at the golf course (/snarky remark)].

==

So, to summarize, Obama gives 5-minute spiel to the Congresspersons, takes one question, and exits as fast as he can.

FoxNews reports that the meeting is still going on, so it must with Cabinet and advisers.

It truely is that. A freak show. All this hoopla and running about in DC now just because Obama foolishly and carelessly uttered something he didn’t understand or attempt to think through before he said it. It really is amazing to watch this fiasco unfold.

It is also amazing that this is a double blunder being at once both an international diplomatic and internal political fiasco. The rest of the world see’s this nonsense for the circus it is.

Absolutely. Obama will blame congress in a heartbeat. You can be sure he’s spending more time on this strategy than on the attack plans for Syria.

Unfortunately, the ‘it is republicans fault’ meme is working on low info voters already thanks to useful idiots like McCain and Graham. I heard a low info friend say last night that ‘Obama is being pushed into this war..that he doesn’t want it’. I almost came unglued but remembered the person does not follow anything but what she sees on CNN and very little at that..sad but true.

Limbaugh Theorum at work. Obama will not be blamed for any of this.

No doubt the US will go to war in Syria...does it matter if we train the rebel Jihadists in Syria or in Jordon?....which is one of Bo’s objectives....we are still aiding Jihadist terrorists who no doubt will turn on our men and women soldiers in a heart beat.....and us as history has shown.

This is all wrong IMO...going into Syria is a deathwish on our soldiers who should not be sent there under any conditions.

The globalists are still under the impression they can take the heathen behavior out of the heathen....we only need to look at all the ME nations our guys have fought in to see they have no interests in changing their dynamics amongst one another......fight they will...under all circumstances...it is their very nature IMO.

The Globalists have brought all this down on our country and the ME....Bo and congress are all “IN” to change the world and by attempting so have only brought death and destruction....that is not going to change ....

As it stands, our best option is to cut Turkey a check for $30 or $40 billion and let them have at it while we run interference to the rest of NATO. The Turks will have no qualms about killing everyone on both sides, after which they can annex Syria for all I care.

Heck let the Turks have Saudi Arabia for all I care...if they want to go ahead and revive the Ottoman Empire, they can be my guest, at least they knew how to keep the Arabs in line.

I’m convinced the entire thing is set up to deflect congress and the public from scandals and the Obamacare fiasco. Grab any headline but those. And a war would be the only thing he’s done that’s halfway legal.

You’re welcome. It almost feels like we’re in the twilight zone to see the same figures who hammered Bush endlessly over Iraq advocating war here.

Remember all those crazy worldwide “antiwar” protests defending Saddam Hussein? And how they numbered in the hundreds of thousands?

Where are they now to defend Assad?
