When all else fails, give up:
Senior House Republican aides are frustrated that the Obama administration has done little to reach out to rank-and-file House GOP members to make the case for why military action is needed in Syria.
“Mr. McDonough has been meeting with Democrats, but the administration has shown no strategy, no effort to talk to rank-and-file House Republican members,” one senior House GOP leadership aide told CNN.
At least, “giving up” is what I read into this. Doesn’t look like President Wiggleroom thinks he can win, and isn’t even going to try. But that’s OK, because he can just turn the whole mess over to Putin, now that the election is over and he has all that flexibility.
