Paul Craig Roberts Article -The High Cost Of Saving Face For Obama

The High Cost Of Saving Face For Obama — Paul Craig Roberts

Will Congress Now Save Obama’s Face By Selling Out Democracy and the Syrian People and Setting the Stage for World War III ?

As I observed in previous columns, obama was pushed out onto the end of the limb by Israel and the neoconservatives. The UN, NATO, the British Parliament, and the rest of the world left the White House Fool there, out on the limb where Israel put him, to make war on Syria all alone.

This proved to be beyond the Fool’s ability, but instead of crawling back off the limb and finding an excuse to get down, obama decided to buy the Congress and to tell more lies.

The White House and its presstitute media are telling Congress that it is too humiliating for the President of “the world’s only superpower” to have to crawl back along the limb and get down just because he told a lie. Congress must ”save face” for the liar who is “America’s first black president,” or the prestige and credibility of the US will be lost.

What this really means, of course, is that the credibility of the Israel Lobby and the neoconservatives will be lost unless America again commits a war crime and destroys the life and prospects of many more people in the Middle East.

"Congress should be voting to impeach Obama and Kerry"

"Instead of voting on whether to allow obama to attack Syria, Congress should be voting to impeach obama and kerry. Their blatant lies, dictatorial claims, and arrogant inhumanity are powerful arguments for removing them from office.

The lies told by the obama regime are so transparent that it makes one wonder just how stupid the regime thinks the American people are. Little doubt the white house is relying on its Ministry of Propaganda, a.k.a., the presstitute media, to undermine Americans’ confidence in their common sense and to make them accept the latest fiction. The tactic is to use the peer pressure of the prostitute media to silence Americans’ conscience."

(I think Mr. Roberts hits the nail on the head in that article! He is as outraged as we all are!)

I'm sure there's all kinds of blackmail and bribery going on- both sides of the ocean!

Ah, exactly!

What has the “socialist” Hollande been promised that makes him so willing to demonstrate that France is Obama’s whore?

Ah, exactly!

God, I HATE our French "president".

This Hollande piece of sh:t of a bureaucratic thief, leech, silver-spoon-fed parasite has NEVER produced anything in his FREAKING entire "life", but new lies, new ways of plunder, and demagoguery!

Help yourself, meet "the man" :

If your election system is as corrupt as ours and your media as complicit, along with widespread ignorance and apathy then that explains it!
