My God! This president is

My God! This president is self-appointed. He sounds like he is beginning to believe his own lies. It makes me puke to hear this man talk of moral righteousness as he authorizes drone strikes that have killed more citizens including children than anything he is accusing Assad of doing. That takes some ego to think a foreign forum is going to be as complicit and protective of his BS as they are in USA.

I wouldn't want to be Obama

I wonder how he can live with the double moral, It must be hard talking softly all day while still having to ease the obsession of poking everything with a big stick.

But he is probably a psychopath else I can't see how he would be able to do it with a straight face.

"Let me refer you to the speech..."

Sorta reinforces the perception that Obama is nothing more than a teleprompter reader...

Presidenterrorist Warbama:

"And I would argue that, when I see 400 children, subjected to "Gas," or 1,400 innocent civilians dying senselessly."

Says the war criminal terrorist who has murdered in Pakistan alone, more than 2000 innocent civilians, inclucing hundreds of women and ~100 children.

I like that, as alternates.

I've already had "ObaMARX" in regular usage for a while now.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Yeah, I have a few, regularly used alternate names for Obama.

They usually all start with 'Presidenterrorist' and end with 'Warbama,' 'Liebama,' 'Spybama' or 'Conbama.' You are appreciated, Cyril. :)

Even if you buy the premise, the war still makes no sense

As Rand said, bombing the weapons cache but still leaving some around doesn't prevent Assad from striking again. And if he was (in theory) crazy enough to attack his own people right after the UN inspectors came in then why would he stop after a limited bombing strike? And if we're not after "regime change" then what signal does that send to the world?

This is not in any way to suggest that I buy the premise. I'm sure there is MUCH more to this story than we're being told.

Obama Redeemed US that is why he has Nobel Prize

The Swedish reporter doesnt get it.
Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize for us. Not for the Swedes. He is the President of Peace.

Half Caucausian, half African he became president so that people of Caucausian heritage might have two chances to be forgiven the sins of their racial history.

He promised us a path to redemption. A chance to make america a post-racial society. All we need do is vote for him and declare ourselves Democrat. Then at last we could be cleansed of any racial crimes in our past. If enough of us did it he promised we would no longer be a racist nation.

He was not selfish. He reached out to us twice to give us the opportunity to be redeemed. I hope no one voted for Romney the second time. If so you are responsible for Trayvon Martin.

Now I understand why Obama

supports, financially and militarily, the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda. I wonder how much money Saudi Arabia is going to pay to use our military this time around? A path to redemption? For whom?

This president has lied his way through 5 years of playing golf and going on vacation. He's killed innocent people, including children, in Pakistan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen. He has a kill list, he did away with due process and can abduct and disappear people at will. If Obama had a son, Trayvon Martin was an up and coming clone.

Who doesn't get it?

Who doesn't get it?

this is..

tongue in cheek, right?

yeah.

I heard people say he was the messiah. But I only just realized that it was because he is here to forgive our (possible ancestral) sins.

Why didn't she ask...

You yourself have openly killed hundreds of children with drone strikes in Pakistan. What legitimacy do you have to denounce Assads "supposed" killing of those 400 children you just sited?

and......

how many more lives are going to be lost when the "limited bombing" starts? I would venture to guess a lot more than was lost to gas....

"I have one word for you...predator drones. Oh, you think I'm kidding?" Obombya

If Obama then responded with the militant/collateral damage line

She should have followed up with:

"If Assad labeled the 1,000 gased Syrians as "militants" and the 400 gassed children as "collateral damage" would you be less likely to attack Syria considering YOUR & ASSAD's similar military strategies?"

At the 2:00 mark, he says something very profound...

We could answer his statement this way...how long do the American people allow ourselves to be so blatantly and arrogantly ignored and mislead on such a consistent basis, when it comes to the way this corrupt government is leading our country, before we stand up and take our country back from these criminals? They are at war with everyone, including our own countrymen and they are on the brink of taking us into World War III. All the time, we just sit quietly in the backseat like well-behaved children, while they drive the American bus full speed of the edge of a cliff. It is pathetic that we stand for it! Horrifically pathetic!

Idiot

Bumbling rumbling stumbling IDIOT

Reporter looks like she does not buy that answer.

The world does not buy his

The world does not buy his answer...only MSNBC does.

Well

My reply to this disgusting piece of crap is...what about drones? Talking about chemical weapons and how the Syrian Army killed 400 kids, which no doubt is tragic, but what about the statistics of innocents killed by drones by Obamas regime? Staggering...

"It's a struggle day and night. But you got to keep up the fight. Real eyes realize real lies. Revolutionize.
Break the chains and hold on tight. Your mind is your souls sight. Think for yourself, stay alive. Revolutionize your mind."

If Looking Down is a tell of a lie

Obama is either searching the ground for his soul, or lying his ass off

Obama: "I did everything I could to end the war in Iraq"

no you did everything you could to prolong the war and failed. Only then did the war "end". It was Bush's agreement with the Iraq government that ended the war when the time table expired. Obama tried to extend it but Iraq refused.

The only honest thing you said in your answer was that you were undeserving of the Noble Peace Prize. You should have stopped there

The thing they like to forget

The thing they like to forget is that you end a war by simply bringing all your troops home. If no one is there to fight, there is no war.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

In other words, no problem preemptively killing more innocents.

The logic here escapes me.

Obama

You are taking on a responsibility YOU do not have.

You said when bad stuff happens in the world the question is always what is the United States going to do about it.

I hate to break it to you, but YOU ARE NOT the United States.

You are currently its President. Big Difference. Your concern is NOT the world. Your concern is the United States. At least it SHOULD be.

You are only allowed to do what powers are granted in the Constitution of the United States. If you want to take military action then you get congress to declare war. Otherwise there must be imminent attack for you to use the military.

ALSO it is HYPOCRITICAL to say you're concerned for kids in one place and not another. I've seen footage of a little girl in Iraq have her stomach blown out by US Forces. Now, which country claims moral high ground again?
