By kids, I mean his American constituents
His Syrian policy is really a story of “Epic incompetence,” so states Charles Krauthammer , or what about this slant, “Unbelievably small” presidency as Marc Thiessen puts it or that, “No one is afraid of him” Ruth Marcus argued. These opinions are from the writer’s of the Washington Post.
However, the most recent developments from Syria have been generally positive from America‘s standpoint anyway. The President has accomplished goals that many American citizens endorse, but then, the menu of choices has been few and mostly unpalatable.
Polls (you have to take them with much skepticism) imply that the public prodigiously is behind BHO on this round. A full 79 percent endorsed the U.S. Russian plan to get rid of Syria’s chemical weapons as opposed to missile strikes. Yet, Syria nor Russia can be trusted, can they?
I mean is Russia really going to destroy Syria’s chemical arsenal? They have, after all, supplied them with much military equipment. Getting rid of those weapons and making the playing field more equal has been the goal of Obama for close to 2 years maybe.
But Barack has an affinity for being on the wrong side of things; maybe this time he’s gotten it right! Obama garners little respect so that even when he proposes what the country wants and succeeds at it, he still gets blasted as a failure, which in many respects, he is…
