Today’s briefing in the Senate on Syria, starring Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, and Secretary of State John Kerry, did not go well for Team Obama. Hagel accidentally said the Syria intervention would be a “war.” Kerry envisioned scenarios in which there would be American boots on the ground, despite President Obama’s insistence that there will never been American boots on the ground in Syria. Kerry had to backtrack. Kerry acknowledged that if Assad survives the US strike, which is virtually guaranteed since Assad is not a target, that he will stand up and crow that he “defeated America.” Sen. John McCain tried his hand at Obama foreign policy, implausibly arguing that Syria’s rebels are mostly secular, moderate and democratic, echoing Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s statement that the Muslim Brotherhood is “mostly secular.”

Here are some of the best tweets I saw during the debacle on the Hill.

Obama wants to send a bow across the Muslim Brotherhood's shot.

John McCain, yet again, reinforces the Hobson's Choice confronting the American people 5 years ago. If Biden had been his VP ticketmate, it would have been a comedy act, where they were both Dick Smothers.

It took Obama months to paint himself into his own corner. It took the Atlantic less than a week to blame the Jews.

Just muscular enough to lead from behind. If you can't be inspired into war with that kind of leadership, you just aren't the right kind of patriot.

A coalition of the invisible. Finally...an appropriate use of the phrase..."You didn't build that".

Hagel, Rice, Powers, Kerry, Biden, Holder, Obama...a War Cabinet where the intellectual and moral cupboards are empty.

Before Kerry was appointed SofS, I read that he was clueless. Sounds like most of the administration and a good portion of Congress are as well.

I keep hearing that Obama is intelligent but I don't see it. His actions with regard to Syria confirm that he just doesn't understand foreign policy or maybe he would rather concentrate on screwing up our economy instead.

If this were a movie, it would be described a a dark, and twisted comedy. The poster blurb would read; "Funnier than Joe Biden's shotgun routine."

McKinley recognizes the shell game. Syria will now shift the weapons to another state while the weeks pass.

Mardre wins with...

"No boots on the ground." "You can keep your insurance policy." "You can keep your doctor." "Your premiums will decrease."

And yet Republicans once again feel the necessity to believe president pathological liar on this one. WTF?

The analogy here is cheating on your wife, once you do it and get caught, you will never be trusted again.

The wife is the USA.
The cheating is all the undermining of the Iraq war the Democrats engaged in when Bush was President.

The USA does not trust Democrats in matters of war.

I disagree. I think more than half the USA will follow Obama anywhere he leads them.
