‘AMATEUR HOUR’: Krauthammer
slams Obama’s sudden
decision to delay Syria strike

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:CarrotFarmer87, 8/31/2013 3:04:30 PM

Immediately following his statement from the Rose Garden on Saturday, which President Barack Obama said he would delay a strike on Syria until seeking authorization from Congress, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer took to Fox News to slam the president. Krauthammer criticized Obama for the way he has handled the unfolding of events surrounding the crisis in Syria. “[T]he most astonishing thing is the lack of any urgency,” Krauthammer said. “As you say, Congress will be back in a week. He says, ‘I can strike in a day or a week or a month,’ as if he

Comments:
Whether you agree with Obama needing Congressional authorization or not, this is very poorly handled by 0bama

Charles, I hate to tell you, big boy, but you are a heap slower than Obama. How many YEARS did it take you to see that Obama was a terrible president??

since WH had given away their targets in advance, had given away their strategy of brief action (pinprick), had been rejected by England(our closest ally), had been unsuccessful in building an international coalition, had been met with a tepid response from Congressional leaders -- Obama decides to pass the hot potato to Congress. after Kerry had given a passionate build up the day before. astounding mismanagement even for this crew.

Obama definitely boxed himself in with his "Red Line" statement and is desperately looking for a way out after someone in Syria called his bluff. So he has punted the problem over to the US Congress. If the Congress eventually votes against military action look for Obama to try to change the focus of the debate and blame the Republicans.

And what if the rebels are responsible for those chemical attacks?

http://www.examiner.com/article/breaking-news-rebels-admit-gas-attack-result-of-mishandling-chemical-weapons

We´d be going into battle on the side of the perpetrators to put the real WMD users into power in Syria. Kerry´s argument is for what they want to do which is fight on the side of the MusBros who according to the above story got their chemical weapons from Saudi Arabia.

Why the hurry to start a war with wider war possibilities? And why choose sides between two loathsome groups of terrorists or tyrants? And why worry about what they´ll think of us?

Let us hope that less and less are willing to immunize him. And that many wake up out of the Land of Innocence to see on whose side he truly is.

This character is an unscrupulous con man. If Congressional approval is the right thing to do here, as he says, why was it not the right thing to do in attacking Kadafi??? Since he cannot get the British to go along, nor NATO, nor the UN, he will settle for the paltry support of the United States Congress and the citizens they represent. The guy is ridiculous.

And will we ever get an explanation why he did a U-turn in the past 24 hours with respect to going to Congress. In his always conniving way, he said that he reached this decision. No, wise guy, you changed your mind 180 degrees on Congressional Approval and I for one would like to know why? Of course no explanation will be provided from him or his regime. Sickening.

The President´s recent decision to seek congressional approval for an attack on Syria is anything but amateurish when you consider that, for Obama, every problem is, first and foremost, a personal political problem. As loath as Barack may be to cede any amount of executive authority, passing the buck to Congress is a cunning solution. What does Obama gain? Delay, any delay, will help to erode the sense of urgency established by The One´s red lines. But more importantly, Obama now has perfect cover for whatever he eventually decides to do. With all those congress critters voting one way or another, Barack has a cast of hundreds that he can blame for any strategic consequences. And, in the meantime, he will be giving the Syria question much serious thought as he high steps from one tee to the next.

Obama was in a lose/lose situation. He could bomb Syria and watch the subsequent chaos in the Middle East be blamed on him. Or he could (amazingly) go the Constitutional route of referring the mess to Congress and let the media put the entire red line brouhaha into the Memory Hole.

He made the wisest choice, and soon we will be talking about something else.

With all the political strategizing that goes on with this group - 24/7 - Sundays holidays - it never stops (they spend more time on strategizing than anything else), you would think that one of his strategists would advise him against going out on the links shortly after his Secretary of State spoke on so serious a matter.

And what do some or any of the score of behavioral scientists the administration has on its payroll think about such behavior?

Dr.Krauthammer has made an accurate diagnosis. I wonder if he read Edward Klein´s outstanding biography of Obama, The Amateur, published before the 2012 election? Sadly, not enough voters read it. Here is a stunning quote from the book regarding Obama´s NSS (National Security Strategy).

In the publication World Politics Review writer Miles E. Taylor explains how BHO repudiated Bush´s NSS:
"Obama´s NSS downplays the promotion of American values when compared to those of his predecessors. The words ´freedom´ and ´liberty´, for example, appear only 14 times in the text. This is stunning compared to the Bush NSS, released in 2006, which stressed those core principles no less than 110 times....The Obama NSS declares that ´American values´ like freedom and democratic governance are ´the essential sources of our strength´. Why, then, are they given short shrift in the document itself?

"The answer," Taylor continued, "Is that the Obama team has been consistently cool toward the idea of democracy promotion since winning the White House, partly to avoid the appearance of being similar to Bush and partly to avoid ruffling the feathers of rogue regimes with which it hoped to engage.",(bold is mine).

Do you think we have engaged "rogue regimes" enough?

Help out a foreigner here. When Obama says he will "Go to Congress" what exactly does that mean? Is he going to send them a letter asking them to pass a declaration of war? Or is it a request for money, to pay for an attack on Syria? Is it just a "mind of the House" declaration, like "We think that an attack on Syria would be the right thing to do?"

And whatever his approach, does Congress HAVE to respond to him? What if they just say, "That´s very interesting, we´ll put the matter on the agenda and deal with it...some time. Maybe next year. Anyway, after we´ve passed a budget." If this is all just an execise in passing the buck and saving Obama from looking like a fool, then why should Congress play along if they don´t have to? Let everyone remember that HE was the one who made all the loudmouthed promises, and now not only did he fail to deliver, he´s left kicking his heels in the waiting room while Congress decides if MAYBE they´ll take the time to look at his little problem.

I think you people are being unkind to the President, he was all over this. In fact, he was for bombing, before he was against it. There was proof that the Syrians has gassed somebody, before he could prove they had gassed anybody.

He was going to bomb them, before the Russians said that would be foolish Comrade.
He was going to hit them with Cruise Missiles, before he discovered we were out of them. Then he was going to make a speech, before someone forgot the Tele-prompters.

The highlight of the month was when Assad´s 11 year old kid reamed him out on Facebook. After that threat, he went into the Rose Garden and cried. Where is Reggie when you need some lovin´

The world wanted obama and now has him. wanted an end to American hegemony and he is delivering that also. War weary and world weary Americans may be watching the historical moves being made in the world with either a self-protective or a jaundiced eye.

obama´s red line isn´t based on a clear line in this one. Republicans, whom he has denigrated in a way unprecedented, to my knowledge, by a president, should refuse to support any move he makes--look to Pelosi and Reid for an example.

GOP always plays the "have to act like a responsible adult" card. At this point, the responsible thing to do is not to prop up the president because that is not in the national interest. Hitlary the author of Libya and Egypt fiascoes waits to go onstage in 2016, giving us 4 more years of socialist/Marxist students and/or flower children or their offspring.

Meanwhile the Tea Party strutting Cockerals flap their wings and crow about their power--new-found power and could be used for the good of all if Pride (and his Father)didn´t make them instead into a dividing force that will make a GOP victory against Hitlary impossible. Making the case for "Our weaknesses sometimes our strengths and our strengths our weaknesses"?

There is always the possibility someone actually pulled out a copy of the Constitution and found what he is/was trying to do is an IMPEACHABLE offense and polls show he has extremely low approval ratings. This and the number of Dems who are now questioning him. That would make any dumbazzzzz think twice.

A Ramirez inspired cartoon might be: the ship’s crazed skipper, without captain´s papers, staring back over the stern, at the wake of confusing rapid course changes of the rudderless Ship USS President. Of course, he´s lousing up his responsibilities. He was never qualified to run the ship. Can you imagine, that he´s a raging enlisted man impersonating himself as a qualified, high ranking officer, without a single document or license? The whole thing is tragically absurd, and continuing ad absurdum precisely because the Congress Gate Guards are passed out drunk, and his Court of parasitic sycophants, is packed full of royalty kissing, knee pad supplicants, like Diane Sawyer, Brian Williams, Scott Pelley, David Letterman, Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters, Tom Brokaw, who with religious fervor, continuously say, "He can do no wrong". This is still a great country, despite the crazed leader and the fanatic old media, still a country that brings us a higher quality of life for all productive people than ever before in history. Time for a 50 million citizen march to impeach and peacefully protest the failed and criminal leadership. Krautheimer, always wonderful but too soft on the would-be-dictator. (And impeach fascist Jerry Brown, while we’re at it.)

I´m one that happens to agree with Dr. Krauthammer. Obozo IS acting like an amateur. But, he has done so since his first election as a US Senator.

And has anyone even considered what would be if(and I seriously doubt it will happen) Congress were to vote to attack Syria? At this point in time, Obozo has told the world just what the attack would be, where it would be, what the targets would be, etc. So, even if he launched missiles today, all he would be hitting is some sand dunes. By now, Syria has already move any and all valuable military targets. So, a few weeks from now, just what would be the results? Any military commander worth his salt will tell you that military actionable intelligence decays rapidly after about 24hrs. Usually, after 48hrs it´s useless. Think about it.

What Obama is attempting is what he always does---trying to put the blame on someone or something else, in this case Congress. The man who has had no qualms about recess appointments, special appointments, stringent EPA rules on an already ruled coal industry (and this from a man who uses Air Force 1 as a taxi service......some carbon footprint there) is now trying to say the Devil (Congress) did or did not make him do it. And all of this is because Obama drew that red line in the sand a year ago, and looks a fool. If he SERIOUSLY cared about poison gas victims he would do more than a 2 day missile hurl.

I don´t fall out with Dr. K now. Now he sounds like the smartest man in the room.

Where I fall out [fell out] with the good doctor was in the run up to 2008. He sat night after night after night on the Hume Report and other talking head shows, telling us that we had nothing to fear from an 0bama presidency. Every time someone brought up
Ayers and Dorne and Wright and Frank Marshall Davis and the grandparent´s adherence to Marxism, and Indonesia and the madrasas where 0bama was schooled, and the lack of any background information, and 0bama´s declaration that he would redistribute America´s wealth, Dr. K assured us that as soon as 0bama became president, he would have to become a moderate in order to govern, and we had nothing to fear from him.

Apparently, Krauthammer ignored ValJar´s assurance that Barack would be ready to RULE on day one.

So when did Dr. K. get his new-found religion?

And never forget, Krauthammer was a speech writer for Carter.

Dr. K lost me in 2008 also. I couldn´t believe he was unable to see obama for what he was.

I´m no politician or ´so called´ journalist - but I can connect the dots and see what was being foisted upon us.

Now, Dr. K is read and appreciated only when I´m sitting next to a ten pound salt lick. His opinions have to be weighed against his 2008 blindness.

Obama has repeatedly insulted our British allies with his returning of the Churchill bust after his first inauguration, his chronic placing of his feet on the Resolute desk, among other actions.

The recent footage of a rebel commander cutting out and biting the heart of his enemy shows us who Obama´s friends are. The gas attacks against Syrians have been going on for a year. Itt is reported that 100,000 Syrians have died in the conflict. One hundred Coptic Christian churches have been destroyed in Egypt at the hands of Mubarak´s enemies. Is it any wonder that Barack Hussein Obama stands alone in his "red line" position?

I think most of the above commenters are completely wrong. I believe this was completely calculated. Just another step in bringing down a once great country from within.

Interesting to see how the press are all saying the Congress needs to give Zero authority to attack. I say BS. I say that NOT ONE REPUBLICAN should vote to have this guy lob a couple of cruises into Syria, just to make him look tough. Let this POS twist in the wind. Let his presidency die here and now. The weaker he gets, the easier it will be to finally put a stake through the heart of Obamacare and all the other socialist crap he´s done. That is of course, if Boehner and company have the guts to do that.

Let his guys twist in the wind and let these factions of terrorists kill each other.

To answer the Bat´s procedural question in brief, general terms: The War Powers Act (post-Vietnam) gives the president the power to respond to an immediate threat without asking Congress-- voting on shooting down attacking planes being kind of ridiculous, you know? But he still is supposed to get permission for operations longer than 90 days. If the danger is not immediate, he is supposed to get authorization from Congress, which is today´s substitute for a former Declaration of War, which we haven´t had since 1941. Presidents have more-or-less honored it, at least retroactively, but Obozo went into Libya without one, and obviously is only seeking one now because he has his thing in a vise. Hope that helps. (And if you wonder why he can act without authorization, the only ways to stop him under our system is for Congress to defund the action or impeach him.)

Someone here said his poll numbers are falling. Looks like they are rising in fact (see Rasmussen unless, like me, you have decided he is delusional). Is the majority of this country so ignorant and ill-informed that they cannot see this emperor has no clothes?

Krauthammer is five years late to the game. While many of us here had a damned good idea what the election of the Muslim Marxist would mean for our country, the "good Doctor" was spilling ink by the barrel assuring us that the Current Occupant was a decent fellow who, once in place, would "govern from the center."

Sorry, Charles. You blotted your copybook, but good, with that piece of blinkered thinking, and unless and until you ´fess up to it, everything you say will carry the mephitis of intellectually damaged goods.

On Laura Ingraham’s radio show on Thursday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer railed against President Barack Obama’s foreign policy gestures, specifically his referral Russia as a regional earlier this week. Krauthammer blamed it on the inexperienced advisers the president has surrounded himself with in his second term and his own worldview. “This points to the fact that Obama has surrounded himself in this term, in this kind of second-term arrogance, with midgets,” Krauthammer said. “There is nobody in the high command who had the stature of Bob Gates, for example, or even a Hillary Clinton

In an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s radio show on Thursday, Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) and Ingraham sparred over the issue of immigration. Ingraham accused the North Carolina congresswoman of being on the side of the Chamber of Commerce and big business with Ellmers insisting Ingraham didn’t have a grasp of the immigration issue. “I stand with my North Carolina farmers who say this is an issue that needs to be reformed,” Ellmers said. “I’m not going to take an ignorant position as you have on this issue.”

On Jimmy Kimmel’s ABC show earlier this week, “The O’Reilly Factor” anchor Bill O’Reilly called President Barack Obama a “patriot.” On his show on Thursday night, O’Reilly reiterated that sentiment, calling “almost every president” in the country’s history “a patriot.” “I said on Kimmel that both President Bush the younger and Barack Obama are patriots because they served their country,” O’Reilly said. “You may not agree with them, alright?

In November, the U.S. Postal Service reported it had a $5 billion loss for Fiscal Year 2013, its seventh consecutive year with loss. At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

On Wednesday night, the official MSNBC Twitter account posted a tweet celebrating General Mills’ decision to air a biracial commercial touting Cheerios during this Sunday’s Super Bowl. However, that tweet came at the expense of suggesting “the rightwing” was racist. Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new#Cheerios ad w/ biracial family. http://on.msnbc.com/1dPgQEU The commercial titled “Gracie” is part two of last year’s popular “Just Checking” commercial for Cheerios, with the father this time using Cheerios to explain to “Gracie” she will soon have a younger sibling.

On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” Monday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer unleashed a scathing critique of the Obama administration as more and more of the flaws of ObamaCare are brought to the forefront. Krauthammer explained that as we learn many promises of the laws promotion are being left unfulfilled, it is clear a “vast deception” was at play. “That is another truth emerging,” Krauthammer said. “I think what is happening here is not just a matter of what is affordable. It is a matter of a vast deception. The idea that you can keep your doctor, you keep your plan, was meant to say

Brit Hume said Tuesday that California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s call for a fix to Obamacare is a sign of just how bad things have gotten for President Barack Obama and his administration. On Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” network senior political analyst Hume explained to host Megyn Kelly that Feinstein’s shift, after a million Californians lost their health coverage, indicates the worst is yet to come. Many more Americans are expected to have their health insurance policies canceled. “This is as bad a political disaster as I have ever seen,” Hume said.

On Monday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, network senior political analyst Brit Hume speculated that President Barack Obama may not have been concerned about the rollout of his signature health care legislation, which has been fraught with problems. Hume noted all the problems with the law, which includes requirements for insurance coverage that the consumer couldn’t need and some of the failed promises made by Obama himself. “On ‘The Kelly File’ here on Fox News the other night, Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of Rahm and one of the designers of the Affordable Care Act

On Saturday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” Kate McKinnon played Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the show’s cold open and took on this month’s Obamacare rollout, which has been plagued by website troubles since its launch. “Hi, I’m Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of health under President Obama. Now, a lot of folks have been talking about our new health care enrollment website — how it’s been crashing and freezing and shutting down and stalling and not working and breaking and sucking,” McKinnon’s Sebelius said.

On Tuesday, Mediaite White House correspondent Tommy Christopher added another chapter to his ongoing self-promotional crusade masquerading as a career in journalism. And this time, it didn’t involve a shameless ploy to be an invited guest on whatever incarnation of Chris Hayes’ show MSNBC is currently airing. During Tuesday’s White House briefing on Tuesday, Christopher, whose name isn’t really “Tommy Christopher,” asked a question about President Barack Obama’s health-care reform law that incorporated his personal experiences with health insurance after his 2010 heart attack. “First of all, I don’t if you’re aware of this, but when I

On Wednesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer reacted to criticism from conservative radio host Mark Levin, who had taken to his radio show on Tuesday night to remind his listeners that Krauthammer once worked a speechwriter for the 1984 Democratic presidential nominee, former Vice President Walter Mondale.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
