He warned Syria not to cross his little ‘red line’ in the sand. They did and now he refuses to own it.
“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.”
The video of Obama setting a “red line” in regard to Syria, from over a year ago:
He just assumed the world, which heretofore adored him, went along.
He’s backpedaling so fast the objects in the rear view mirror are closer than they appear:
‘We may not be directly threatened’:
“We may not be directly imminently threatened by what’s taking place in a Kosovo or a Syria or a Rawanda in the short-term but our long-term national security will be impacted in a profound way and our humanity’s impacted in a profound way.”
“Point number two, my credibility is not on the line. The international community’s credibility is on the line. And America and Congress’ credibility is on the line because we give lip service to the notion that these international norms are important.”
His penchant for being a scatterbrained crapweasel is nothing new.
I wrote this back in 2008, while he ran for his first term:
Incredible. The MSM complicity with and blatant favoritism toward Obama and his campaign, is sickening. He’s constantly given a free pass in spite of convoluted thinking, inept approach to foreign and domestic policy, and history of associating with nihilist shitbags.
After listening to Obama ‘articulating’ his thought processes, it’s painfully obvious that he is unable to grasp the seriousness of his character flaws. The consequences of an Obama administration is not lost on those who want to keep him as far away from the White House as possible.
A slew of right-leaning investigative journalists, pundits, and bloggers revealed the ominous defects in Obama’s personality and background, but the slobbering media and a cesspool of human garbage in the electorate, foisted this worthless turd into office, twice.
Don’t say you weren’t warned.

It is all performance art. Every spin has a purpose. While we fixate on Syria, the obamanation of an economy, obamahellscare, obama debt, all worms its way through the shit we call Washington, D.C.
