‘Dude, knock it off’: Lapdog Ezra Klein celebrates White House’s awesome Syria ‘strategy’; Update: Doubles down

Nancy Pelosi isn’t the only one marveling at the Obama administration’s “strength” on Syria. Journo-doofus Ezra Klein has a swooning couch of his own:


Clearly Ezra’s had enough:



The depth of Klein’s lapdoggery is truly inconceivable.



Ezra’s back for more:

Serious, you guys.



Twitchy coverage of Ezra Klein

  • JeffWRidge

    They just keep floating one explanation for this farce after another hoping that people will buy it. Either that, or they really are delusional and actually believe that Obama planned it this way.

    • trixiewoobeans

      Maybe he lost a bet? Drew short straw in the office pool to serve this crap sandwich? His family’s being threatened? Injected him with Sally Kohn’s hormones? Hypnosis?

    • conservative2012

      Don’t kid yourself, they really are delusional, and actually believe everything that comes out of this administration, and the MSM.

      • JeffWRidge

        Undoubtably you are right about most of the left. However, I do think that a segment of the left knows better and are cynically trying to con the American people into believing that Obama has done better than he has.

  • Sir_Ronald

    This guy is a joke!

    • World B. Free

      Naaah, jokes are funny. Ezra Klown in just sad, very sad.

  • Brandon Goeringer

    He, like many other MSM “journalists”, is the Joseph Goebbels of this Admin.

  • adam

    For liberals there can be no loser… everyone gets an award. Here you go Obama, brilliant strategy. Only you could have hired Kerry knowing he would bumble his way to a victory. Keep up the good work.

  • Magnifico

    It’s like scoring a suicide-jumper’s diving form as he plunges to his death.

  • https://twitter.com/Captain_Cy_kun Cy

    So “win” now means “destroying American credibility overseas and letting one of our biggest diplomatic rivals take our spot as the world leader on foreign policy while also completely failing to achieve the goal we started this mess to achieve”? I just…don’t understand how people can be this abysmally stupid. Every time I think the left can’t possibly sink any lower, they dig down another mile with their fingernails overnight. It’s depressing.

    • Rightturn

      What, in your opinion, was the goal we started this mess to achieve?

      • https://twitter.com/Captain_Cy_kun Cy

        Actually there were two, 1 was supposedly to keep Assad from using chemical weapons which this thing with Russia isn’t going to do and 2 to keep Obama from looking like an idiot because of his “red line” statement which, yeah, definitely didn’t end up happening.

        • Rightturn

          How would taking Assad’s chemical weapons not keep him from using them?

          • https://twitter.com/Captain_Cy_kun Cy

            Because they’re not really taking them from him. They’re saying they’re going to put them under international control and dismantle them, but refuse to sign any binding resolution about it. And even if they did take them all away in some fantasy world where Assad would actually turn all of them over, Iran could easily resupply him within a day if he ever wanted to get more.

  • avid_reader

    Just as Limbaugh predicted, the lap dog media spins the fact that Obama could not get the American people nor Congress to support him, and his being played by Putin and Assad, as a win.

  • TDS

    Obama has the enemy right where they want him…

  • dogwonder

    Win, he’s farking nuts. Putin humiliated Obama before the global media, and now Obama looks like a sulky child threatening to go home and take his dolly with him.

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    I replied and had to ask if there was an actual human being manning that account.

  • John Titus

    If anything this is yet another blaring example how this administration is in over its head. These guys would mess up a community volleyball game if they were left to organize and plan it. What a display! And with useful idiots like Ezra why try? He probably thinks the WH did brilliant in Egypt as well.

    Ezra Klein ✔ @ezraklein

    I can’t believe the White House’s strategy on Syria is working out this well. I doubt they can, either.
    Yeah ….. blindly grasping at straws like clueless fools on the world stage.
    We’re so proud ….. and so impressed!

  • therealguyfaux

    Some Presidents are born to devise winning strategies, some achieve the ability to devise winning strategies, and some have “winning” strategies thrust upon them by Vladimir Putin.

    If by “winning,” you mean that now, just like the fellow in the old country song, The Winner, by realizing you’ve just been made an ass of, but that you’ve been saved from, in the long run, making an even bigger ass of yourself, well, yeah, that’s “winning.” And unlike the cowboy in the song, Super Barry-O may not have gotten it yet.


  • Billie Slash

    What a douchebag. No, a douchebag with a lisp.

  • © Sponge

    Just like we “won” in Libya, right Ezra? I guess the band Better than Ezra was right all along. They ARE better than this douchenozzle.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Not so fast, Ezzie. In the famous words of Yogi Berra, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” And between Putin and Assad, I’d say this is farrrrrr from ovuh.

  • grais

    Looks like Putin is about to save America (and her reputation) from Obama.
    And Klein thinks that was Obama’s strategy.
    smh till it hurts

  • Spasmolytic

    Strategy? Democrats should be thanking Putin, not Obama. The great liberal ‘messiah’ was schooled by Putin in the art of diplomacy.

    Obama should have asked Putin for advice during The Benghazi attack. I guarantee the result would have been much different.

  • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

    Hey Eza, can you repeat that please? Your voice is a little muffled from being STUCK UP BARRY’S BACKSIDE.

  • J. Cox

    He spelled spin wrong…there is no w….unless they are going to blame W.

  • SpaceRacer423

    So Ezra truly believes that Obama planned this from the beginning?
    Step 1: go “off the cuff” and mention a red line that was already crossed.
    step 2: do nothing for a year.
    step 3: back peddle and call the remark “off script”
    step 4: deny you ever said red line.
    step 5: blame congress
    step 6: decide you may have to bomb people in order to look credible
    step 7: thank Allah Putin threw you a life line.

  • KhadijahMuhammad

    “I can’t believe the White House’s strategy on Syria is working out this well.”

    The strategy was to turn Putin into the most respected leader in the free world?

  • Gordon

    This must be what it was like in the last days in the Bunker.

  • stillinthe60s

    Looked up Obamabot in slang dictionary and Ezra Klein was displayed as the definition.

  • Clete Torres

    Ezra Klein: the hilarious gift that keeps on giving.

  • rippersnort

    Another under the rock thrower. Crawl out when you still have nothing to say important.

    When barack goes in for a colonoscopy, they have to pull Klein out first.

    • tops116

      I’m pretty sure there are more people in there than just Klein. It’s more crowded in there than that underneath that bus Obama keeps tossing people under.

    • 1azuce

      They”ll ask “Ezra, what are you doing up there”.
      Ezra answers “I was trying to pull Chris Mathews out”.

  • http://twitter.com/archaicsteam Archaic

    So Ezra Klein is using Charlie Sheen’s definition of win.

  • Corey Dennison

    Kind of amazed I’m saying this, but the White House may really be about to win on Syria

    Yeah, kinda like the way Denzel Washington’s ‘Alonzo Harris’ character proclaimed that he was winning at the end of the movie ‘Training Day.’ Just after he lost his money, got shot in the a$$, and right before he got filled full of holes by the Russian mafia.

    Unfortunately for the rest of us, we’re all about to ‘win’ the same way.

    Thanks Obama, ya jug-eared moron.

  • TocksNedlog

    “Kind of amazed I’m saying this, but the White House may really be about to win on Syria”
    — That makes ONE of you. Color the rest of us un-amazed that you said it.

    • tops116

      “Yes, we called Assad the next Hitler, but we can trust him to honor a treaty, right? Right?”

  • Forrest Carter

    Damn Ezra how do you deal with your lips always being chapped kissing the “O’s” ass so much, did you start out to become such an idiot in life or did you just happen upon it?

  • tops116

    Uh-huh. Remember last week when Obama was “winning” with his strategy to go to Congress… after a week of insisting he didn’t have to go to Congress?

  • The Jackal

    Who the hell is Ezra Klein and why does anyone care what he says.
    Sounds like an effing moron.

  • Paul C.

    What is he reading Odumbo’s teleprompter

  • Bruce Livingston

    Who is Ezra Klein?


    The sad part is that…

    A. this guy truly believes it

    B. he would deny being an Obama apologist
