I thought you might want to see the interview President Obama did with George Stephanopoulos of ABC’s This Week. I mean, you might not, but you might. It ran today.
The big takeaway? Obama thinks criticism of his handling of Syria is based on judgements of “style.” That is, it might have been a bit messy, but he got a great result.
Well, if we’re talking style, the rest of the world thinks the United States is A FASHION DISASTER. And, really? We trust the Russians and the Syrians, who are both still saying the rebels committed the chemical weapons massacre, to cooperate in collecting and dismantling Syria’s WMD during wartime?
Obama wants to check the box and move on. He’s already “pivoting” back to “the economy,” by which he means establishing new government programs that there’s not money to pay for.
Oh, and Iran better look out, he said, because next time we’re going to stop being unserious.
