Syrian Intervention

Not being a student of American history can be painful. For example, President Obama has been struggling to remember Teddy Roosevelt’s dictum on foreign policy “speak softly and carry a big stick”. Initially he seemed to think it was “bow a lot and throw a hissy fit”. Lately, though, he has been convinced that he made an interpretation error. The World’s Most Powerful Man™ has concluded that the most correct interpretation of what Teddy Roosevelt really meant was “stomp around and step on your dick”.

*sigh* The legacy of the Obama administration: Foreign policy through drive-by missiling because he was dissed by somebody . And he’s just going to show THEM. Whoever THEY are.

I note in passing that the killing of actual American citizens in Benghazi doing the job that he sent them to do only initiated a cover up, not retaliation of any kind.

Update: Steve has an even better example in the comments: “Speak grandly and wave a limp dick.”

        There were those among my friends who believed it was ‘ignorance’ on the part of The Current Occupant, Swampie – you know, he “just didn’t realize,” or some such dreck – right up until he let those Americans be slaughtered, while he pissed around…realization has come hard to many…but it’s too late now, I’m afraid…

    OTOH, it’s kind of sweet when he gets all stompy-footed as if he were really scaring someone. Or it would be if he were 4 years old and not POTUS.
