Friday, the beginning of a four day weekend, by all rights, should be a tremendously slow news day, and it was, until Secretary of State John Kerry, in efforts to gain support and approval for a strike on Syria, stated, they, meaning the White House, had proof, there was chemical used against Syrians, completely without verifiable sources.
How could that be when the United Nations’ investigators, a day or two before, wrapped up their gathering of samples to test? This statement quickly became, a ‘he said, she said,’ and as such, it was back to the president and his claims of constitutional authority to act on his own, if Congress declines to give him permission.
If he had the constitutional right to strike Syria, why is he, on a daily basics, trying to gather support for this strike? Why has he now, punted, or fumbled the ball to the halls of Congress? Most important, if he had the constitutional right to create unrest in regions around the world, why haven’t he done it already?
From day one of this individualized administration, the president has decentralized Congress and transferred their powers to the White House. Every since that transfer of power, Congress has been groping around in the darkness of uselessness, trying to find any sought of light source, that will, at least, return them to the surface area of Washington.
What’s so important about a strike on Syria? Egypt’s former president, Mohamed Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood leadership was suppose to be the launching pad of Muslim domination in the Middle East. His power was to prove legitimacy for the Muslim Brotherhood, but now that he’s a failure, the launch pad has shifted to Syria and if the al Qaeda backed rebels fail, so does the entire Arab Spring.
The president’s punting, or fumbling the ball to a decentralized Congress only serves to protect his failing rating from around the world. This move would indeed, render America, and not him, the distinction of loosing creditability.
It’s not complicated at all. The first African American president has never succeeded at anything in his life, including aiding and abetting the spread of Muslim domination around the Middle East. You have to remember, ‘he was the one the world was waiting for.’
