Remember this past May, when we learned that Obama didn’t really mean that stuff he said about the “red line” on Syria? Yeah, well, as it turns out, that “off-the-cuff” gaffe wasn’t Obama’s; it was humanity’s.

According to Nancy Pelosi, whatever happens is our collective responsibility. It’s humanity’s problem now.

And shook his hand:

Or maybe that was just “humanity” grinning at Assad. So hard to tell, you know?

In any event, when push inevitably comes to shove, we need to remember that Obama had nothing to do with any of this.

The resemblance really is uncanny.

Yep. Obamacare was totes humanity’s doing, too. Serious, you guys.

Pathetic.

Damn straight. The buck stops with Obama, whether he — or Nancy — likes it or not.

    This should be a surprise to no one. The Democrats have to support this en mas. To do otherwise is to make Obama the lamest of lame ducks, denying the Dems any chance at further socialistic advancement.

    Yep, and Obama didn’t call for war against Syria……….. it was Pelvis Pelosi’s 5 year old grandson……………..

      No, that’s not “humanity,” to them, that’s Conservatives. We don’t count as humanity to Libs, or babies.

    Sarin gas attack in 1988 killed an estimated 5,000 Kurds in the northern Iraqi village of Halabja. Hussein also reportedly employed the gas on several occasions against Iranian military targets, but Iraq had no WMDs, right?

    Where was this red-line of humanity back then, Nancy?

    Why are we going to ally ourselves with AQ the enemy and supply them the best air-force /navy in the world ? So Ahmed kills GI’s in Afghan and Mohamed gets US air cover and missile support in Syria – and they could both belong to the same AQ brigade. At what point will the U.S learn Islam is the enemy! Mythical moderates are the same ones who allied themselves with the u.s Sept 11. There are no MODERATES in Syria, its relative to the size of rock they throw or how high they hang gays or the amount of free speech they suppress and womens rights they destroy! They hate us.

      So right. Assad could be removed from power tomorrow and the civil war would not end.

      • Marvin Nelson

        Yeah, getting Mubarak out of office worked pretty well, so why not oust Assad while we are in the area?

    Obama didn’t draw the red line, trying to save Obama’s presidency did.

    NOPE NOPE NOPE, Pelosi. I saw and heard it for myself, Obama drew that red line.

    There are no good guys to support here, there are no US interests at stake no matter how they try to spin it while the odds chemical weapons will fall into the hands of terrorists is very real if Assad falls – so naturally Pelosi supports the idea of the US making a largely useless gesture for appearance sake in the stupid belief it will improve Obozo’s image after he showed the entire world he is incompetent, possesses zero leadership skills, made a shambles of US Middle East policy and alienated our closest and most reliable allies. So now he and Pelvis Pelosi want to send a clear message the US will only support chopping off body parts one at a time until dead, “normal” bombing of civilian women and children, sawing off heads of the living, cannibalism, gang rape, evisceration, forcing children to watch the barbaric, vicious torture and execution of their parents before getting a bullet in their own head – “war” as practiced by Assad’s terrorist enemies. Because those practices are acceptable “civilized behavior” in the world of Obozo and Pelosi and we need to show we have no problem whatsoever with any of that -by bombing Assad’s interests. Hezbollah has vowed to strike Israel if the US bombs Syria -and a part of me suspects that prospect bothers the Israel-insulting Obozo not at all.
