We are finally seeing Liberals turn on Obama over Syria. I am happy about it but let’s put this all in context.
They’ve seen him do nothing on the economy, they still supported him.
They’ve seen him fail to create jobs, they still supported him.
He’s overseen racial tensions getting worse, they still supported him.
They’ve seen him take away our liberties by spying on us with the NSA, they still supported him.
I could go on and on but you get the point!
MSNBC.com executive editor and MSNBC commentator Richard Wolffe tore into President Barack Obama on Friday following the conclusion of his address to reporters at the G20 summit in Russia where he discussed the need for intervention in the Syrian civil war. Wolffe said Obama looked “tired,” and his performance was “embarrassing.” Wolffe added that the case the president attempted to make for intervention was “muddled and unconvincing.”
Wolffe began by agreeing with the panel on MSNBC’s Now with Alex Wagner that the “service professionals” quoted in reports strongly questioning whether the administration had a clear and achievable goal in Syria were out of their depth. “I’m afraid we have civilian control of the military for a good reason,” he said.
However, Wolffe clarified that civilians, too, are unconvinced by the case for intervention the president has been making.
