Hayward notes at Human Events:
Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor made a point of supporting President Obama’s quest for military strikes on Syria because they thought it would earn them some reciprocal goodwill. Then they got to watch Obama take the stage, just hours after a shooting rampage at the Washington Naval Yard, and launch slash-and-burn partisan attacks against them. Perhaps that influenced their decision to go all-in on ObamaCare repeal. Maybe they got tired of trying to shake hands with someone who keeps hitting them below the belt.
Nice fable, John, but we’re talking about the kind of a guy who lets one Ambassador twist in the wind in Benghazi, then sends another Ambassador to urinate down the public back while talking about the video that precipitated the tragedy. Our President is a lying, no-talent rodeo clown of such magnitude that you’d require a lobotomy scar of Kerry proportions not to notice. Still: good try.
Well, maybe, but I, for one, am not reassured by a GOP leadership willing to launch an idiotic lose-lose war against Syria just to earn some “reciprocal goodwill” from President Clothes Dummy.
