Reuters says that President Obama has asked Congress to delay voting on the authorization to use force against Syria. The delay, supposedly, is being driven by the proposed deal in which Syria would hand over its chemical weapons to the “international community.

“What he (Obama) wants is to check out the seriousness of the Syrian and the Russian willingness to get rid of those chemical weapons in Syria. He wants time to check it out,” Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin told reporters.

Levin made his remarks after a lunch meeting on Capitol Hill that Obama attended. On Monday, the Senate began debating a resolution backing U.S. military strikes against Syria, which was requested by Obama on August 31.

What is taking place between Obama and Putin is a very large version of something that has been going on for years and years all across the country: it's a totally unqualified and incompetent quota-filler, in completely over his head, making a thorough mess of his responsibilities.

If you've worked in a big-enough organization then you can probably recall any number of instances of this that you've obseved or were even involved with. Usually there is at least one other (non quota-filler) person around in the organization who can clean up the mess and save the QF's sorry butt. However, there's only one POTUS at a time so there isn't anyone else here.

So who had to step in to save this carmel-colored, quota-filling, lying one-man cluster-f**k's miserable hide? The white, male ex-KGB Prime Minister of RUSSIA!!!!

Jimmy Carter must be grinning his largest, dopiest grin ever. Not only is he no longer the worst POTUS in the country's history, Obama has retired the trophy.

I trust Assad and Putin because they haven't lied to me yet. Obama lies every time he opens his mouth....which is way too many times. Why doesn't he just resign for the sake of the country and go back to community organizer? I almost get sick to my stomach when I count the ways he has destroyed this country, both economically, politically and internationally. Do the people that voted for him really have any idea what they have done? Lord have mercy on this country.

Here's some rich irony from Peggy Noonan...I know she's past her sell by date, but it's a good example of the smarty pants Beltway media types who slurped up the Obama snake oil in 2008 and now are butt hurt.

This is the money shot sentence:
"Obama, a self-besotted charismatic who can’t tell the difference between showbiz and strategy, and who enjoys unburdening himself of moral insights to his peers."
Sorry Peggo, but that was obvious from jump street to anyone with a tad bit of street smarts; Obama has never been anything but an empty suit, an affirmative action cypher who stood for nothing ,but he was "special" because of his skin tone. You and your "conservative" media hack buddies were enablers for this flim flam man in 2004 so can the sudden gravitas.

Obama is a great man as he has somehow managed despite his mind numbing stupidity to not blow up the world … … yet anyway.

Ptin/Russia asked Obama/US to withdraw any missiles (aircraft carriers,amphibian boats etc.) Da,da Vladimir,da,da. It will be once in a blue moon that US is acting like a Banana Republic. The regular Syrian National Coalition (not Al Qaeda and its affiliates) are fit to be tied- they cannot believe Obama's Magic Tricks . Watch tonite- Obama will tell 'the world-which drew his red line' he is the Nobel Peace Prize recipient and let's give Bashar al-Assad another chance since 'regime change' was never on the table. US Treasury is allowing NCOs to go to Iran ($500,000 spending money and keep books- this is for all humanitarian,democratic initiatives).

Add on- US Secretary of State Kerry- Russia's FM Sergei Latrov and Syrian FM Walid Mullen will meet in Gevena,Switzerland on Thursday September 12,2013 to discuss the whole shebang and time tables. Russia' Pres.Putin told Pres.Obama that Syrian chemical arms handover will work only if US/Obama calls off strikes.

I wasn't going to bother to watch Obama's speech this evening (you've heard one of his lies, you've heard them all), but now I'm beginning to think that it will be entertaining to see how he tries to spin this mess.

Putin is insisting that Congress take a vote. If Obama won't do it then chemical weapons are back in the Syrian arsenal. Yes I know that the Russian/Syrian deal is all pretend, bit it's the central move of the game.

If Obama starts again to talk about attacking Syria then he'll have to do it without a vote in Congress. Haven't we just been there? didn't Obama just blink on that one?

Obama will have to find a new spin cycle where he can pretend that doing Putin's bidding and taking a vote in Congress is some kind of "you can't scare me" defiance of Putin.

No vote in Congress then no face saving chemical weapons "handover". Vote in Congress and Obama gets to pretend that he made Assad hand over his chemical weapons. Either way the world laughs.

Every day another way for Obama to screw himself and his country.
