In an absolutely stunning development President Obama has now decided that he will go to congress to seek authorization for strikes against Syria. Now to be fair I have to say up front that I have been riding the fence about whether or not we should strike Syria, not because the crime doesn’t fit the punishment but because what the president is proposing wont accomplish anything but to say that he kept his word. Also lets not lie, America isn’t exactly very strong right now. Borrowing 40 cents of EVERY dollar spent by the federal government, mostly from those thugs in China, should make all of us hesitate at least a little before starting another middle eastern adventure. Having said that the fact that Obama has now gone to congress to seek political cover (something no president has ever done for a limited military action in the modern era, not even Carter was that weak) after trying to talk tough against Syria has made America look pathetically weak to exactly those people who need to fear us. America has not looked this weak and vulnerable since the failed bid to rescue the hostages in Iran. Furthermore the president’s about face has had just the opposite effect of what the strike was supposed to have done, it has now emboldened ALL of our enemies in the region. To say that this is amateur hour in the White House is an extreme understatement. Our country now desperately needs someone with a new vision and decisive leadership to fix our many problems at home and abroad because it sure isn’t going to come from this White House. God have mercy on this nation because we have incompetents in charge of us now.
