What’s the most important issue facing the country today? If you listen to pundits on the right, it’s Syria. And yeah, there is much to relish in Obamster’s foreign non-policy bloopers. Personally, I like Sarah Palin’s take on the situation: Let Allah sort it out. But, lets face it, since our President declared that some sort of red line was crossed, it would be nice to deliver the consequences, belatedly, and even if he, our President, went back on his “red line” line and threw the ball into Congress’s court. (Since when does he defer to the legislative body?)
While I enjoy ridiculing of O’s foreign non-policy as much as any other blogger, I don’t think there is much at stake in this conflict. American boots are unlikely to touch the Syrian ground, and while we are going to waste considerable treasure firing missiles in the desert, I can live with that. Sure, it feels good to expose the failures of our first post-American President to the middle-of- the- road voter… but wait, what if this middle of the road is about to shift to the left, significantly?
Ladies and gentlemen, listen to Mickey Kaus:
But I’ve always wondered: How were they actually going to pass an amnesty bill in the GOP House without anyone noticing? Even if the MSM cooperates by playing down the issue? The debt ceiling/Obamacare fight isn’t enough to distract the base forever. We’re no longer shocked by the NSA and IRS tax exemption stories, everyone’s picked their side–another scandal isn’t going to do the job. You’d almost need a war or something. And that’s not about to happen.
I’m just a little blogger who typically writes about off-beat topics and leaves the big issues to big guys who cover them better than me. And yet, I am amazed by the lack of focus on the current version Amnesty this summer, even when it’s proponents sound confident. Did we concede?
