United States President Barack Hussein Obama prepares to address the nation scam the American people concerning Syria and chemical weapons. I pity his speechwriter, trying to put into words a policy that does not exist, changes from minute-to-minute, and is based on gaff statements by both Obama and John Kerry. This is what happens when you have amateurs in control.
Are the American people supposed to believe one word out of Obama's mouth? Should we trust the likes of John Kerry? How about Russian President Vladimir Putin? Do we trust him to have American interests at heart?
A few random statements about the upcoming speech are below. Add your own thoughts in the comment section. This post will be updated when the text of Obama's speech is available. (image via SodaHead)
Tuesday night’s speech now becomes one more event in a haphazard and unpredictable process that has shifted repeatedly over the past two weeks. No one appears in control,... -- Dan Balz
... It will be a White House address in which a president argues for an endeavor he is abandoning. It will be a president appealing for public support for an action he intends not to take. --Peggy Noonan
“This has become a circus of weirdness,” ... “As it’s headed, I don’t see
it as a textbook example of ‘what to do’ in the Naval War College.” --Douglas Brinkley, a
presidential historian at Rice University (Boston Globe)
