Shorter Obama: Congress gets to decide what color that line is.—

It’s no secret now that while President Obama might have talked about drawing a red line in Syria, what he was actually doing was painting himself into a corner. Harry Shearer seemed unimpressed with the president’s statement this afternoon that he’d seek approval from Congress before taking military action.
Wow, maybe it was just an “off-the-cuff” remark after all. Shearer’s betting that today’s statement, though, was carefully planned.
Secretary of State John Kerry will do his best to pick up the pieces by making the rounds of Sunday morning talk shows.
Is there anyone left on either side of the aisle who believes President Obama does what he says he’ll do?
