Syria Mess, Bush’s Fault?
Posted by Warren Peterson on September 13, 2013
The chief flack for the Left, James Carville, set the table and President Obama served the meal. Yes folks, the Syria mess is Bush’s fault. Nothing is ever Obama’s fault. It’s enough to make one wish George W. Bush was still Commander and Chief. Just think.
If W drew a red line on Syrian use of weapons of mass destruction (poison gas counts) and threatened swift and massive retaliation if they crossed it, Assad’s regime would think more than twice before using them.
Would you rather have French-speaking John F. Kerry negotiating with the Russians from a position of weakness or Bush’s Russian speaking Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice going one on one with Putin? She would not have to worry about President Bush pulling the rug out from under her. They would be on the same policy page. One almost feels sorry for Kerry when his strong call for action is immediately contradicted by a faint of heart President Obama.
A popular bumper sticker shows a picture of G. W. Bush with the words, “Miss me yet?” Yes!
