More important, if this crisis gets complicated, who trusts Obama and Kerry to be resolute leaders? Nobody. Is there any doubt that Obama would cut and run?
This is rank amateurism. Obama has no idea what to do, so he punts. He has kicked the ball to Congress, hasn’t called them back to the game, just told them you guys debate it, and let me know. Oh, and, of course, this is more important than defunding Obamacare, investigating Benghazi, looking into the IRS or Fast and Furious. No hurry. We can leave our ships out there for months if need be. Joe, let’s head for the links!
There’s the heart of the matter. Nobody trusts the U.S. government to know how to actually wage war any more – and they haven’t done so since the debacle in Vietnam.
With good reason, I might add.
