So, I'm watching Fox Special Report (DVR)...and the question was asked, "Will Congress vote to attack Syria, and if they vote no, will Øbama act anyway?"
It suddenly became clear to me what's happening.
Speechifying Øbama wanted to sound "Presidential" and like a "World Leader" when he talked about his red line...threatening other countries with the might of the United States...reminding everyone he is the "Most Powerful Man In The World."
But basically his mouth made a promise his ass can't keep...and now he's in a bind. He called out the bully in front of his friends...never expecting the bully to show up on his doorstep ready for a fight.
Now all he wants to do is hide under the bed....but if he does that, everybody will know he's a coward. So he came up with what he thinks is a pretty clever manipulation:
1) Ask Congress to pass his resolution to attack Syia
2) When they don't, he can shout and shake his fist at the bully, claiming that if only his friends weren't "holding him back", he'd kick his ass!
He'll grudgingly, with bellicosity and supercilious moralizing, "submit" to the will of The People/Congress...and do nothing...which is JUST what he wanted to do in the first place.
Because he's, you know, a feckless dildo.
That's my opinion....and I'm stickin' to it.
