So Boner rolls over for Obama and says he will support his ill advised foray into bombing Syria. (H/T Drudge) Wow. I didn't see that coming. Here's what he said:
"We have enemies around the world that need to understand that we're not going to tolerate this type of behavior. We also have allies around the world and allies in the region who also need to know that America will be there and stand up whether it is necessary"So lets see. There has been no irrefutable publicly available evidence presented indicating that the gas came from Assad, lots of indications that it didn't, and we are to take the word of the same administration that still has not accounted for what happened at Benghazi. Boner misses a golden opportunity to tell him that no one trust this administration and instead rolls over for a belly rub.
Who exactly are the enemies here? The fundamentalist that are otherwise tearing that country apart? Who are the allies that we are standing by? I don't really see anyone in that conflict that are allies. The only reason I can see for Boner going along with this madness are two fold. One is that he hopes that the Republicans will gain respect of the electorate while supporting the president in time of conflict. The other is that he hopes the Bamster will screw up this so bad that the country will have no other choice but to elect Republicans.
Let's take those one at a time. First, the respect gained by supporting the President. Now if we were dealing with an honorable administration installed by conscientious electorate I would agree. Times, they have changed though. Take a good look at who is in the White House and how he got there. The electorate you are hoping to impress are laughing their ass off at your naivete. Next is what happens when the Bamster brings the Mideast into chaos? He has proven himself quite adapt at throwing others under the bus to avoid blame. The last finger he will point will be at Boner who allowed him to go forward. A willing press will not dare call him out.
Here's what Boner Benedict should have said:
"I have met with the President and listened to his reasoning for military intervention in the Syrian conflict. I do not share his belief that the US has any reason for getting mired in that conflict as we have no allies or enemies engaged in it. While he has presented alleged proof that Assad fired the gas shells, I cannot accept such indications from an administration that has failed to come clean about Fast and Furious, Benghazi, and the IRS manipulations. When he does so I will be glad to consider this 'evidence' that he has shown us. Until then I can't in good conscious agree to this adventure. Oh - and don't think for a moment I am distracted from defunding Obamacare."
Yeah - that's what a real leader would do. I'm sure he will stand up and be counted next time...
