NBC: White House Regrets
Publicly Setting Syrian Red Line

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/28/2013 8:47:26 PM

NBC chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd reported this morning that the White House regrets publicly setting a red line with regard to Syrian use of chemical weapons: [Video] "I can tell you there is regret about that red line comment," said Todd, "because if you --" Host David Gregory interrupted, "In the White House?" "In the White House in this respect," Todd continued. "You don´t draw--I mean, they meant it. They do mean it on the chemical weapons. But saying it creates this political conversation. They didn´t want to go public last week

Now, now. Obama personally called Assad today and told him that his (Assad´s) mother was a hamster and his father smelt of elderberry, then proceeded to threaten to send chemical weapons of his own out of his butt in his general direction if he didn´t stop using chemical weapons.

Syria and North Korea know Obama is full of crap and will not do anything to them for using nukes, chemicals or anything else they want to use against anyone they want to attack. They can attack the US and all that will happen is Hillary and Kerry will send harsh letters threatening severe diplomatic sanctions by the UN and that´s it.

Only a Democrat could get away with this kind of idiotic behavior in the White House. Particularly a black Democrat president. It is expected of him to not be savvy politically- He´s black! That´s enough.

The main stream media´s response: This apparent flip flop is an evolution of thought by our esteemed and incomparably wise young President. He is not some intellectually stunted tough talking cowboy. His decisions are nuanced and thoughtful. He is a man particularly suited for these dangerous times.

In other words, something that would put any other President on the proverbial political hot seat, will be massaged into foreign policy brilliance.

Pondering if Mr. Obama ever did his own dirty work in his entire life can be a lifelong pursuit.

With this latest "not present" vote, POTUS has successfully embarrassed his entire Party, his family, liberals everywhere and America around the globe. But then, foreigners are wiser than liberal Americans: At least the former know what Obama really is. The latter are only now regretfully waking up from their own votes.

READ an article of November 6, 2012 written in the Canadian Free Press by Doug Hagmann:
http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/50824

In addition to arming the anti-Assad rebels with conventional weapons, there was a concurrent plan that would have been the icing on the cake, so to speak. An event that would have put the objective on a fast track to completion.

Imagine the outcry from the civilized world that wakes up one morning to the news that Assad had “gassed” his own people. Except it would be a false flag event that would set-up Assad. That would be an invitation to NATO and the West to intervene, using the same or a similar template we have seen Mr. Obama use. Again, the game clock was running out on Mr. Obama and his handlers, and there is no guarantee that he will see another term to get the job done. Such an event would usher in the forces of NATO and expedite plans.

Liberals believe Obama just reassessed the situation and they applaud him for it. They will be the only ones who see it that way. Unfortunately what Obama will get is another test. He will be prodded and poked until he responds. Nature abhors a vacuum. Let´s not forget that Russia and Iran are propping up Assad.

Great weekend for President George W. Bush to surface with his moral resolve and character. The differences between obama and President Bush were so apparent at the dedication of his library.

Democrats have got to be holding their heads low in disgust....

AND -- while WE´re on the subject of "character". That poor excuse for a man, bubba clinton, riding the coat/tails of the Bush family made me sick.....

See, it´s our fault: We thought it was digital, an absolute and he corrected us in his professorial way and explained it was analog and quite subjective at that! It was an innnocent mistake on our behalves. We just have so much to learn under his greatness. haha /s off.

The term community organizer has always chafed my sitting mechanism, and the faux fact that participation in such action is the only qualifier for residency in the White House, is akin to attempting to alleviate said chafing with turpentine.

The kindest, and most accurate, (MHO) reference I could ever attribute to "The Won" was community agitator, and not a particularly good one at that.

It now seems he was not even deserving of that consideration. The won has wilted into a wimp!

The old adage about "it all coming out in the wash" was contingent on the agitator agitating, and his doesn´t - probably never did!

All this talk of WMD is such an unnecessary distraction

We have a family member who is a lazy , no good bum
and I must say, even he shows more initiative
and work ethic than Obama.
No one..no one ..has as much free time as Obama.
It´s a futile point, but, if we had a competent and honorable media , the American people
would have been made aware of Obama´s pathological laziness.
His daily , non work, all play schedule is absolute dereliction of duty.

Yeah, that´s why you don´t hijack a routine presser in August to talk tough about your "red line" so that people will think you´re tough on terror and vote for you. It would be better to have a well-thought out plan (say, 3-4 steps ahead) than to get in front of the microphone and pop off. That was, as my dad used to say, "letting your alligator mouth overload your hummingbird a**). It might work bullying Chicago peeps, but the Syrians and others are not fooled. They know he´s weak.

No kiddin´? Obama wishes he shouldn´t have made the remark about a red line? Really?

I never believe anything he says. Obama is such a feckless, arrogant twit. Anything coming out of his head or mouth is just more drivel and not to be believed nor counted upon.

Remember when Reagan actually fired the air traffic controllers after he threatened to - and they didn´t believe him? That was one of the more significant decisions Reagan ever made. The rest of the world - friends and foes alike - learned then that when Reagan said he would do something - he would. Don´t think any international leaders ever doubted his word or promises again. (This decision of his was historical, indeed).

The "red line" threat was just the opener for the exposure of WMD´s, and to be followed up with the announcement the Al
Queta has captured them, and darn it, we think they should give them to the " international community". Or, Or Or else!

When Barry wants to go "rambo", it will be against the Americans.

When a video of high school student Jeff Bliss calling out his teacher went viral, a lot of people started talking about the state of our education system and ways to improve it. However, almost a year since the video was posted, not much has changed. In fact, many would say that with the extension of Common Core curriculum across most of the country, it has actually gotten worse. Take this attempted explanation of Common Core’s approach to math: (Letter & Charts) How is this helping?

It´s not just carriage horse drivers saying neigh to plans for vintage cars tooling around Central Park. The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars. Doug Blonsky, the conservancy’s president & CEO, told the Daily News that introducing the electric vehicles to the park would be a bad idea. “Forty million people visit Central Park each year, including runners, bicyclists, kids and dog owners,” Blonsky said Wednesday. “Adding vehicles to the mix will make the

Shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, a 19-year-old in a hoodie and baggy jeans was captured on a grainy black-and-white surveillance video urinating into a reservoir that slakes the thirst of Portland, Ore.’s 600,000 or so residents. (Cue the disgusted “Ewwwwwwwws!” right here.) But really, Portland Water Bureau officials, do you have to flush 38 million gallons of potable water for the sake of a cup or two of human urine? That’s how much the bladder comfortably holds, although the bladder in question obviously wasn’t comfortable. We get the fact that Beervana prides itself on its water supply. The water bureau

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

At the same Clinton Foundation-sponsored event Thursday where Chelsea Clinton announced her first pregnancy to the world, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a question from a young, 19-year-old woman who chose to publicly reveal her status as an undocumented immigrant. “That was incredibly brave,” Clinton told the woman after she shared her story. The woman, who introduced herself as Nova, got emotional as she told Clinton and the other people in attendance that she was an undocumented immigrant. Struggling through tears, she continued, “I want to say that it’s been extremely difficult for me

President Obama mocked Republican opponents of his health care law on Thursday, saying that they were going through the “stages of grief” and that critics should accept that the law is here to stay. “I recognize that their party is going through, you know, the stages of grief, right?,” said Obama during a press briefing at the White House. “Anger and denial and all that stuff and it -- we´re not at acceptance yet -- but at some point, my assumption is, is that there will be an interest to figure out how do we make this work in the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The
