From Barack to a Hard Place to CYA (Congress Your A**) The Teri O’Brien Show 9-1-13

Obama, Biden

We might not know who used chemical weapons in Syria, but it’s not as if this latest international crisis hasn’t taught us here in America anything. Barack Obama knows there’s a Congress? Who knew? Just last week, the Regime unilaterally decided to restrict our 2nd amendment rights with a stroke of a pen.

I never thought I’d say it, but at this point, I’m starting to feel a little sorry for Sec. of State, John “Lurch” Kerry, who will today do the “full Ginsberg,” appearing on all five Sunday shows to present Barack Obama’s latest brilliant foreign policy move in the Middle East. Yesterday, after last week’s stunning rebuke of U.K.’s Prime Minister David Cameron, the first British PM to lose a war vote in over 200 years, now Barack Obama, without conceding that he does not have the authority to act against Bashar al-Assad without the consent of Congress, is seeking their approval. I think that all of my SL’s (Smart Listeners) know what’s going on here. Jackass Obama, off the PrompTer, shoots off his mouth, now wants Congress to bail him out by voting against any intervention in Syria. Like everything else he does, it’s cynical political calculation. If they vote no, they’ve gotten him off the hook, helping him avoid looking like a feckless fool for all his talk about “red lines,” which were crossed months ago. If they vote yes, he can pin the blame for another war on them, and have some great fodder for the 2014 election campaign. I know exactly what you’re thinking. I smell leadership!

Maybe this is an obvious question, except I don’t hear any of the brainiacs on TV asking it, so I will: Why didn’t Obama deal with this Syria this mess instead of going to Martha’s Vineyard? I have other questions, and I know that you do, too. We’ll unpack the whole thing on today’s show, and of course, hear any Sunday soundbites worth hearing.
