Well, in all fairness, it is incredibly difficult for Jay Carney to defend Obama when Obama’s been flipping and flopping, zigging and zagging, playing some golf, changing his mind, blamestorming, dropping the ball and responsibility in Congress’ lap, playing golf, walking back John Kerry’s comments, walking them forward, walking them back, agreeing with Putin, getting tough, getting weak, giving a speech which was the fruit of his incompetence, rinse, lather, repeat.
(Roll Call) President Barack Obama’s Syria strategy may not have been particularly decisive, but that’s not a bad thing, according to the White House.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney defended his boss Thursday after a blistering few weeks of criticism in Congress and elsewhere over his handling of the Syria crisis.
Carney said the American people “appreciate a president who doesn’t celebrate decisiveness for decisiveness’ sake.” He also said Americans like that Obama is open to “new information” and adjusts his course accordingly.
Carney said that in the end, the president will deserve credit if the diplomatic initiative with Russia to get Syria to give up its chemical weapons arsenal succeeds.
Well, you do have to hand it to Obama. He is decisive when it comes to Blamestorming, particularly Republicans, and we all know that if the “diplomatic initiative” blows up….which it probably will, based on Obama’s history of coming to an agreement then demanding more, along with denigrating the people he’s negotiating with….he will Blame Others.
Maybe Obama should read this article on overcoming indecisiveness. As for the rest of us, we should understand that people who wear mom jeans are flighty, emotional, and prone to change their minds on a whim. Much like little girls playing with dolls.
