The President to address the nation tonight

The spin machine at the White House has been in overdrive since John Kerry’s gaffe providing a means of escape for the Administration…

Uh.. I mean Syria.

Both Russia and Syria have indeed accepted the offer of Syria handing over their Chemical weapons to the mighty United Nations, and now it looks like military action can be avoided.

The President in his interviews yesterday made the claim that he and Russian President, Vladimir Putin, have been working toward this solution.

This morning the President’s spokesman, Jay Carney, made the rounds and claimed, the only reason why we are at this diplomatic solution was because of the threat of military action by the President.

Wow! All this from a red line the President never created!

The President is still going to address the nation and try to sell the public the need f0r an “unbelievably small” assault on Syria.

Personally, I would like him to answer one question: How does he reconcile his desire to act now when he felt intervention in Iraq was dumb. Remember in 2002 he said:

Now let me be clear — I suffer no illusions about Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal man. A ruthless man. A man who butchers his own people to secure his own power. He has repeatedly defied UN resolutions, thwarted UN inspection teams, developed chemical and biological weapons, and coveted nuclear capacity. He’s a bad guy. The world, and the Iraqi people, would be better off without him.

Hussein not only commited the same crimes Assad allegedly committed , he was also guilty of defying UN resolutions, something Assad has yet to do. How does he reconcile his positions?

Don’t worry, I’m not expecting an answer.

In fact, I’m expecting his address to be more like this:

    Pay attention to Obama’s speech tonight. Ordinarily I won’t listen to his BS. Tonight might be a game changer for Syria, the United States and the World.
