He’s got the whole world, in his quote. He’s got the whole wide world, in his quote.

No, really. During his visit to Sweden, Obama said, “I didn’t set a red line,” on Syria. “The world set a red line.”

The world.

Yep. Before, when Obama said chemical weapons use in Syria was a “red line,” it was an “off the cuff” remark we should disregard. Now, it was the world’s red line. Apparently words don’t matter.

And it’s not his credibility on the line, natch.

So, how ’bout it, lapdogs?

Same as it ever was.

Not holding our breath.

      And he is working diligently to fix the problem that he had nothing whatsoever to do with causing. Diligently, I tell you!

      As long as the loony libs believe that Obama is ‘working to fix’ whatever, they forgive him everything, since his incompetence shows them he is just like they are, slow, stupid and incompetent, and that he IS a leader they can relate to.

    • Acethepug

      They CAN Lie to our faces — because the Propoganda Arm of the Democratic Party, the Media, covers for him.

      Imagine this President undergoing a thimbleful of the media hostility and scrutiny GW Bush got. Obama would never have been nominated, nevermind elected (or re-elected).

      But the Media dons their Kneepads happily and continues to spin the narrative to suit President Boyfriend.

      Remember the media firestorm over “You Lie!” and how, in retrospect, it was (and continues to be) completely correct?

      That’s the problem — the Media is as much as enemy as the Libbies are.

    • SWohio

      I was attempting to watch him deny his red line (and the red line is so very very sad to have been denied by him) and hoping to see the faces of the people around him or in the audience but the camera didn’t appear to leave Obama’s face.

    The red line was drawn when the Chemical Weapons Convention was signed even if Syria did not sign it.

    mind, he is the one who laid down that marker. He’s the one who
    directed that we provide this information to the public. And he’s the

    this information so that we can establish in credible, corroborated,

    Two words: Affirmative Action

    When, for example, employers or college administrators, hire or admit applicants not because of the applicants qualifications, which are always lacking, but because of the content of the melanin in their skin, it’s called “Affirmative Action.”

    The current resident in the White House is sorely lacking in his qualifications as the “Leader of the Most Powerful Country in the World.” He never worked a “day job.” His only “executive” experience was as a “community organizer.” We know little about him, except for his ghost written autobiography, which is only a carefully crafted PR number. What did he do while he was an Illinois State Senate? We don’t know. His record as U.S. Senator from Illinois? We know very little. Who was his REAL father? We don’t know because he still has never provided his REAL birth certificate. (You don’t really believer Obama Sr was his real father, do you? If you do, I have a bridge I’d like to sell you.)

    Anyhow, since Obama is sorely unqualified to be POTUS, it’s obvious he was elected solely because he was Black, or semi-black. Thus, he is not only America’s First (Semi) Black President, he is also America’s First Affirmative Action President. As such, as with everyone who is hired, admitted or elected for the purpose of affirmative action, the rules are relaxed or waived for qualifying. And the AA subjects must be judged by relaxed standards.

    So please, my fellow readers, let’s do as the mainstream media has done for the past five years: let’s give our First Affirmative President a break and not judge him harshly. He is trying his best, after all. We just have to relax our standards.

    (This message was endorsed by Obama.)

    This matters. If we are going to shoot expensive missiles into another nation (likely killing innocent people as well as ‘the bad guys’) to maintain the credibility of the United States… then the fact that our President has no credibility on this issue and lies about it matters. I am willing to back him up to maintain his words- but if his words mean nothing on this issue- as he himself demonstrates here- then none of us should be willing to spend lives and resources backing them up. Words mean something- unless they don’t, in which case they don’t, and Congress should vote against the authorization here.

    Let me be clear. The red line does not belong to me. I was merely borrowing it from the world.

  • spaceycakes

    ah, I see, but it begs the question…who let the ‘world’ get hold of his teleprompter?

  • GrumpyOne

    It doesn’t matter that he mentioned a red line a year or so ago on TV. Nope, that doesn’t count. But count on this… Valerie Jarrett who is the puppeteer will surely save the day even though she slip up on this one.

    Oh happy days aren’t here…

    • SWohio

      I’m sure there’s some serious paper burning and page deleting going on in the WH press room. They better destroy this one before too many people get hold of it, or ValJar will be a very po’d shadow president:

      The White House
      Office of the Press Secretary
      April 25, 2013

      “it is absolutely the case that the President’s red line is the use of chemical weapons or the transfer of chemical weapons to terrorist groups.”

      “We go on to reaffirm that the President has set a clear red line as it relates to the United States that the use of chemical weapons or the transfer of chemical weapons to terrorist groups is a red line that is not acceptable to us, nor should it be to the international community.”

    So, the reason the USA should get involved is not the reason of the duly elected President of the USA. Wow, what leadership. Fucking Barry is trying to distract from his very, very,very long list of failures by getting involved in a war on the side of the people who destroyed the WTC. I’ll never forgive this bastard and anyone even remotely connected to him for this dark, dark period in American history.

    “The buck stops at the red line. But I didn’t draw the red line even though I said I did. So the buck stops somewhere at a line I didn’t draw. The world drew the line. So the buck stops somewhere in the world, but not at a line I drew. And Congress’ credibility is on the line, but, again, not on a line I drew. My credibility is still completely intact, because I didn’t build that red line.”

    That ain’t my Red line, I ain’t never seen that red line before. I was just holding it for a friend. I had no idea what color that line was.

    And this press announcement from the WH Press Office – this is just another ‘off the cuff’ remark? I don’t know if these people are beyond stupid or what – they have to know that everything public can be found and replayed or reprinted. They are supposed to be brilliant at using social media to advance their various schemes – guess they forgot about this:

    The White House
    Office of the Press Secretary

    Just like he said “you didn’t build that.” President Zero, indeed.

  • AmericanMom

    Blamed it on the world – not himself. The guy couldn’t/wouldn’t take responsibility for anything he’s ever done. When Obamacare officially becomes the catastrophe we all know is ahead next month, he’ll likely give a speech insisting it not be named after him. Infamy is ugly after all.

    The President: “We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized,” the president said. “That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”

  • John Free

    Are we POSITIVE that BUSH didn’t set the ‘Red-Line’?

  • Get Real

    Obama forgot about the ‘red line’ because of the yellow line up his back.

  • 24601

    This red line idea apparently goes back to WWI, when mustard gas was a thing. Obama is trying to claim that his remarks are based on that idea.

    If that’s true, he didn’t do a good enough job at the time trying the history of it together, and he certainly hasn’t used that concept in an effort to persuade other nations to help put pressure on Assad.

    But I’m expecting him to act like the leader of the free world — maybe my expectations are too high.
