Obama Didn't Draw the Red Line, His Line Was More of a Shade of Maroon

As one comment in this article says, 'Facts are stubborn things, Mr. President.'

Today, President Obama said that he didn't draw a red line about what it would take to get the United States to respond to the civil war in Syria, where President al Assad has been busy killing his fellow countryman by the thousands for several years.  Last week, news revealed that al-Assad had used chemical weapons on the freedom fighters.  Now Obama is saying he did not draw the red line, the people of the world drew that line.

However, read this article.  There are two videos attached. One clearly shows him stating what I just said, "I did not draw the red line" and the other CLEARLY showing him say, "a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized."  Go to the 43 second mark and you can hear it clear and plain.

Oh, President Obama.  Why do you deliberately try to deceive us and the good folks of the world?  Do you really think that people won't remember what you said previously?  We have this little thing now called the Internet where we store video of EVERYTHING you say.  Before you do your next speech, do a Google-search of the facts.  I'm an idiot behind a laptop and I can do that.

So now Obama wants us to get involved in a fourth military action during his Presidency?  We have Iraq.  Obama says we have withdrawn.  Tell that to the 35,000 troops that are still there.  We are drawing down in Afghanistan.  We've taken action in Libya, though President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decided to wait until U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was dead, even though Stevens called and asked for help because they were under attack.  And now we want to move in on Syria.

I don't know about you, but I'm about done with this war thing for a while.  Let's fix Detroit first.  What do you think?
