“Unbelievably small” describes a number of things about Sec. of State John Kerry

Posted by: ST on September 9, 2013 at 7:07 pm » 6 Comments

Not the least of which is his brain!  Via Slate‘s Joshua Keating (bolded emphasis added by me): Over the weekend, Kerry described the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons as “our Munich moment,” telling an audience in France, “This is not the time to be silent spectators to slaughter. … This is not the time to send a message […]

 

Ever get the feeling @BarackObama does not want the #Syria resolution passed?

**Posted by Phineas I mean, why else would you include in your “full-court press” of members of Congress a known liar (1) like Susan Rice? From John Fund: Up until now, the White House lobbying effort has been dismal. In an astonishing display of either ignorance or brazenness, the White House will mark the first anniversary of the […]

**Posted by Phineas I think this is final proof that The One and his band of happy progressives have been into the wrong mushrooms. According to Samantha Power, our UN Ambassador and key mind behind the fatuous “Responsibility to Protect” doctrine of humanitarian intervention (1), thought that a UN report on Syria’s use of chemical weapons […]

 

CONFLICT: Media spin on opposition to US military action in #Syria predictable, pathetic

Posted by: ST on September 7, 2013 at 9:07 am » 3 Comments

Have y’all noticed the emerging liberal media spin on the opposition to US military intervention in Syria where the mediots insinuate or outright say that the reason most Americans aren’t behind us taking direct action there is due to the “deception over Iraq” – translation: Blame Bush? Of course, liberal politicos like Nancy Pelosi have […]

 

Before we trust John McCain’s judgment on #Syria…

**Posted by Phineas Senator McCain said in Arizona this weekend that he was “unalterably opposed” to using American ground forces –“boots on the ground”– in Syria. Andy McCarthy thought that sounded familiar and recalled that John McCain also said he was “unalterably opposed” to Muslim Brotherhood participation in Egypt’s post-Mubarak government. Right before he became in […]

Before we attack #Syria, let’s look at Libya, shall we?

Posted by: Phineas on September 5, 2013 at 1:01 pm » 4 Comments

**Posted by Phineas If Obama wants to launch us into another humanitarian intervention against an Arab dictator (1), perhaps we all should look at how his last Big Adventure turned out? That would be in Libya, where, according to The Independent’s Patrick Cockburn, things have gone from bad to God-awful: A little under two years […]

 

Tweet of the Day: On Democrat war actions versus Republican war actions

Posted by: ST on September 4, 2013 at 8:09 pm » 3 Comments

From @divadoll123: Liberal Logic: Republican Presidents who use military force are war mongers. Democrat Presidents who use military force are humanitarians. — divadoll123 (@divadoll123) September 4, 2013 Sounds about right, unfortunately. Any number of Democrat “leaders” fall under this double standard – Pelosi, Kerry, etc. Anyway, as to the latest developments on the President’s quest […]

**Posted by Phineas What’s the Swedish for “Don’t blame me?” Oh, yeah: Klandra inte mig!

Via NRO’s Andrew Johnson: Nancy Pelosi told reporters today she consulted her five-year-old grandson over the weekend about whether or not to support intervention in Syria. The minority leader explained that when she was home this past weekend, her five-year-old consigliere pressed […]
