Obama: 'I Didn't Set a Red Line' on Syria Daniel Halper September 4, 2013 9:31 AM
President Obama said in Sweden today that he personally "didn't set a red line" on Syria:
"First of all, I didn't set a red line," said Obama. "The world set a red line. The world set a red line when governments representing 98 percent of the world's population said the use of chemical weapons are [inaudble] and passed a treaty forbidding their use, even when countries are engaged in war. Congress set a red line when it ratified that treaty. Congress set a red line when it indicated that in a piece of legislation entitled the Syria Accountability Act that some of the horrendous things happening on the ground there need to be answered for. So, when I said in a press conference that my calculus about what's happening in Syria would be altered by the use of chemical weapons, which the overwhelming consensus of humanity says is wrong, that wasn't something I just kind of made up. I didn't pluck it out of thin air. There's a reason for it."
Thanks GOP for running two candidates so entirely unacceptable, two election cycles in a row, that that clown was able to be voted into office.
I surprised he didn’t say “a whole bunch O’ sh#t being moved around”.
LOL He is a dangerous clown for sure.
We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized, the president said a year ago last week. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.
Plain as the fly on his face.
He is a narcissist and people like that cannot and will not accept the fact that they erred. This explains why his very first instict is to blame someone else and avoid responsibility for any failures.
Narcissists don’t deal well with personal setbacks or challenges to their ego. Obama is about to face his ultimate nemisis: Vladimir Putin. Going to be an interesting face off.
Obama is a complete ‘zero’.
U.S. Republican Senator John McCain says he does not back Senate panel draft resolution authorizing use of force in Syria.
You’re kidding, right?
Of course he set a red line. He is a mental case trying to deny any liability for the many middle-east disasters and assign blame to everybody else. He is a failed president.
Good catch there. Obama always wants things to happen urgently, on demand, and on his time table. This is so people won;t have time to uncover the flaws. Exhibit A for this tactic is the ill-conceived Obamacare.
He sounds quite stupid when there is no teleprompter.
“First of all, I didn’t set a red line,” said Obama. “The world set a red line.”
So now the narcissist thinks he is president of the world...well that didn’t take long.
Wuddent me You gonna believe me or your lying eyes?
Rush’s theory about Obama on steroids! “ I didn’t set a red line, I had nothing to do with anything, the world and CONGRESSSSSSSSS did it. However, because I am great, I will have to get involved and correct what has been caused by Congress and the world.”
no no no...Obama didn’t didn’t set a red line...
George Bush did...and since the red line was designed and put in place by a white man...
black men can dismiss the red line anytime they wish...
This could kill support for his Syria excursion.
