We are all set to hear you speechify this evening about why we need to spend American treasure and lives to intervene in a civil war in Syria. I am more interested in the why now? The cynic in me remembers how Bill Clinton bombed an aspirin factory when the Monica Lewinski affair first came to light and words keep popping in my brain: Benghazi, NSA spying on Americans, using the IRS to target political opponents, Fast and Furious, Growing discontent over ObamaCare, declining workforce, unemployment in the minority community, Keystone XL Pipeline, sluggish economy, assaults on the Second Amendment, skyrocketing electricity costs...Why?, indeed.
I assume, Mr. Obama, you will be boxing up that Peace Prize and shipping back to the Nobel people this week? More importantly, I just have to know how all of this is Bush's fault.
