Why are we getting so worked up about the Syrian red line?

August 20 2012

“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized,” the president said a year ago last week. “That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”

Currently the death toll in Syria is around 100,000 killed by various means other than by chemical weapons. 1429 at last count were killed by chemical weapons. So 100,000 vs 1429. Sometimes you have to put your foot down... according to Barry. I was under the firm belief... when your dead your dead!
BTW... Barry's track record in Egypt and Libya doesn't exactly inspire confidence. 
Weren't we told with 100% certainty Benghazi was the result of a video?
Was that not total bullshit?

I’m no fan of Assad but just what is a Syrian rebel? One of these so-called rebels (Al-Qaeda affiliates) cut a priest's head off about a month ago and Beck had a video of one gutting his enemy and eating his heart and liver.

Muslims killing Muslims. 
I could care less and we should stay the hell out of it!

Tomorrows news today:

FOX, CBS, ABC, NBC... 6 months after... (if) we rescue Syria.

GUARANTEED etched in stone!!!!

Barry's way out. 
He'll put it to the "do nothing" Congress and they'll vote no then blame them claiming his hands are tied.

But the real story is this:

 The internet and news shows claim Barry "boxed himself in" on the Syrian situation with his bravado red line rhetoric. "He painted himself into a corner" they say. In other words he made a promise he may not keep. Another report said if he doesn't act it will devastate is credibility. What credibility? The only promise he has ever kept was "transforming America" into what it is today. 

So what's the big deal? The road less traveled as he likes to call it is paved with broken promises and flat out lies. Christ... he's noted for it!

These are a few examples. 

1. Promise to Cut Deficit in Half during first term. 

Which means we should have been around $5.3 trillion. Instead we were at $16.1 trillion. More than 3 times more!

2.  “If we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home, we will end this war. You can take that to the bank.”

I did and the check bounced.

3.  Promises to close Guantanamo Bay. 
Still open last time I checked. 

4.  “If you like the healthcare plan and the doctor you have, you can keep it.”
Not so much.

5.  "The only involvement I had with Acorn was doing some stuff with the justice department."

They're joined at the hip.

6.  “My father served in World War II”

 His father was born 6-19-1936. 
Germany invaded Poland in 1939. Do the math.

7.   Most transparent presidency ever...."Public will have 5 days to look at every bill that lands on my desk". 

Really? I seem to remember Reid hammering it out in some back room in total secrecy. I'm still waiting for it to hit C-Span like he promised.

8.  Called Bush unpatriotic and irresponsible for a $10.6 trillion deficit yet Barry increased it to almost $17 trillion with 3 years to go!!!!

9.   Barry said in a news conference in the White House Rose Garden that he was committed to fully fixing problems (scandal) at the IRS, saying any employees involved in targeting conservative groups would be held accountable for their "outrageous'' actions.

"Low level rogue employees in Cincinnati" as grown immeasurably. So far not one targeted group has been contacted by the FBI. No one went to jail. Paid vacation leave seems to be the punitive SOP. Barry himself has now taken a different tack calling it a "phony scandal" 

10.  And speaking of "phony scandals" we have Benghazi which reeks with real scandal. 4 dead Americans and no one lifted a finger to help. Barry, Hillary, etc nobody knows anything. Wonder what would have happened if Trayvon Martin was in the Libyan Embassy?

11.  "ObamaCare isn't going to cost one dime."

We're now about to spend $700 million just to market it! That's before we get to any specifics concerning the actual (real) cost of the plan itself.

 Imagine W came up with BushCare
 and you were fined if you didn't sign up. 


Barry has a long history of  over promising and under delivering.  

He wanted to be president. 
But he never wanted to be A president.

And that's one hell of a big difference!
