Charles Krauthammer Slams Obama … “It’s Amateur Hour” … “Obama Boxed Himself into a Corner and Now He’s Looking for a Out
Barack Obama, the Amateur in Chief …
Charles Krauthammer ripped President Barack Obama a new one in his analysis following Obama’s Rose Garden presser this after noon where he said he would wait until Congress comes back from vacation on September 9th and ask for approval to strike Syria. Krauthammer called it “AMATEUR HOUR” in the White House. Well, it’s been that for 5 years and counting. Krauthammer was most astonished by the speech was the “lack of any urgency” Obama and his minions have been railing that the attack on Syria had to be immediate, even before any one was sure who actually was responsible for the gas attack.
“But the idea that you make the case, you leak the details, you tell the world that this has to be done and then you say, Well, I will take my time. I’ll go to Congress and we’ll see. This should be done in three days.”
Looks like the UK Telegraph agrees with Charles Krauthammer: Barack Obama is proving an embarrassing amateur on the world stage compared to George W. Bush.
From The Daily Caller:
Krauthammer criticized Obama for the way he has handled the unfolding of events surrounding the crisis in Syria.
“[T]he most astonishing thing is the lack of any urgency,” Krauthammer said. “As you say, Congress will be back in a week. He says, ‘I can strike in a day or a week or a month,’ as if he is a judge handing down a sentence and the execution can be any time in the future. There is a war going on. Do you think everybody is going to hold their breath, hold their arms, step aside until Obama decides when he wants to go to Congress?
“Look, I think he should go to Congress,” he continued. “I think it is absolutely necessary. But he has done no preparation. What they should have done — I mean, this is sort of amateur hour. When there were the first attacks six months ago or if you like, when we had the current attacks, he should have immediately have called in the Congress the way the prime minister of Britain had called in the parliament, had a debate and got a resolution and then went out and told the world we are going do x or we are not going to do x.”
