White House Blames GOP For $500 million Syrian Rebel Training Fiasco

We’ve had seven years now of Obama screwing things up and not taking responsibility for it, so it should come as no surprise that he is blaming the GOP for his latest fiasco.

Obama’s $500 million program to train and arm the Syrian rebels has flopped in spectacular fashion, so naturally the craven Obama regime is pretending they had nothing to do with it – it was all the Republicans’ fault.  Obama never thought it would work. He just went along because John McCain and Lindsey Graham were just so goshdarn insistent he couldn’t say no. He didn’t want to hurt John McCain’s feelings, so he magnanimously let him try something big.

It’s offensive frankly, that anyone would point fingers at this president, when the fault so clearly lies with the Republicans in Congress. Obama’s fighting to make the world a better place for you and me, and other people keep spoiling it.

Via The Washington Free Beacon:

JOSH EARNEST (9/16/15): Many of you have understandably asked me questions about the claims of our critics who suggest that the administration should invest more deeply in training and equipping members of the Syrian opposition, that that was the recipe for success … That is not something this administration ever believed, but it is something that our critics [Read Republicans] will have to answer for.

EARNEST (6/30/14): The president for some time has been concerned that the lawlessness and violence we’ve seen in Syria does have a destabilizing, dangerous impact … A way to address that, in our view, is to bolster the moderate opposition, provide them additional assistance.

BARACK OBAMA (9/07/14): We have a Free Syrian Army and a moderate opposition, that we have steadily been working with, that we have vetted … At the West Point speech I gave, I said we need to put more resources into the moderate opposition.

EARNEST (9/09/14): The president does believe that there would be value…to ramp up assistance that we provide to members of the moderate opposition.

JOHN KERRY (9/18/14) Stepping up the efforts with respect to the moderate opposition is an essential piece of any strategy against ISIL.

OBAMA (9/18/14): With this effort, we will provide training and equipment to help them grow stronger.

EARNEST (9/16/15): But I think it’s also time for our critics to fess up in this regard as well. They were wrong.

Is this not what we’ve come to expect from these insufferable A-holes?

FLASHBACK to Feb 2013, when Rush Limbaugh had a eureka moment:

You may have figured this out long ago, but it just hit me — and if you figured it out long ago and you’ve been trying to get through here and tell me, I wish you’d have gotten through. For those of you who figured it out and I didn’t, I’m just now getting to it. I apologize for being a late arrival to the party, but now — now — it all makes sense. For five years Obama has never once allowed himself to be seen as governing.

He is constantly campaigning against mysterious forces who have ill intentions trying to harm you and this great country. There are these figures behind the screen, behind the curtain. Romney was one. Bush was one. There are others. Obama’s trying to expose them.

Rush would go on to develop this thought into what he called the Limbaugh Theorem, which is that “Obama has mastered the ability to always be seen as opposing everything that’s happening, even the things he is causing to happen. He is on a perpetual campaign.”

Our Weasel Of The Week Nominees

weasel

It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!

Here are this weeks’ nominees….


Baby Parts Merchants Planned Parenthood !

 The Noisy Room: My nomination this week goes to Planned Parenthood for their condom encounter with Carly Fiorina. Planned Parenthood and Code Pink descended on Carly Fiorina in Iowa and screamed insults and profanities at her. Then they hurled condoms at Carly. Classy. Bonus… one of the morons protesting was dressed up as a birth control pill dispenser. Drolly chic, n’est–ce pas? Quite a feat being a clown and a genocidal butcher at the same time, but these radicals pull it off. Paging Stephen King. They were furious that Fiorina spoke out against them in the last debate. Carly handled the encounter with class and decorum. She was impressive in handling these asshats. Hope she didn’t keep a souvenir. She informed at least one protester that she was a cancer survivor and cared about women’s rights as well. She also pointed out that tax payers fund Planned Parenthood, who in turn fund the Democrats. It’s a political shell game. Why, yes it is.

All Planned Parenthood and the commies from CodePink know is talking points and propaganda. They are demanding their right to butcher the unborn. Imagine that – genocidal maniacs have rights too. The cold hard facts of what Planned Parenthood does in their horror chambers are clear cut and out there for all to see – literally. It would have been nice if Fiorina had turned around and called them the psychotic butchers they are. I know I would have. Small blessings… at least the condoms were still in their packages. This was at a tailgate party before a Hawkeyes game. These losers were shouting, “Layoffs, lies, no surprise, Carly fumbles for these Hawkeyes!” Seriously? That’s the best these brainless twits can come up with? Points to Fiorina though for the following… at one point, one woman asked Fiorina why she doesn’t support women’s health care… Fiorina responded, “Oh, I support your health care. I don’t support the butchering of babies.” You go girl! For being moonbat crazy, genocidally murderous and just plain gross, Planned Parenthood should get the golden statuette for being the pink weasels they are.


WGN TV’s Production Department!

Puma By Design : My nominee for Weasel of the Week are the boneheads in the production department at WGN-TV, Chicago who chose for last week’s news story on Yom Kippur that horrible image of the yellow Star of David that Nazis forced Jews to wear during the Holocaust.

According to the first news report I saw, once an editor pointed the offense of using the illustration, WGN-TV immediate issued an apology on social media. However, according to the Telegraph.co.uk, WGN, stated that “the image came from its image bank, and they ‘failed to recognise that the image was an offensive Nazi symbol.’”

The next day, WGN issued an on-air apology, “Last night we ran a story to recognize Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement. Regrettably, we failed to recognize that the artwork we chose to accompany the story contained an offensive symbol. This was an unfortunate mistake. Ignorance is not an excuse.”

While ignorance is no excuse, the production department, the journalists and those working behind the scenes should have immediately noticed the error before the news story went live.

Finally, who will be held accountable? Oh my bad, NO ONE. Yet if it were a Black person, Muslim or a member of the Gay Gestapo, head(s) would have rolled and a lawsuit pending by now.

Well, there it is. What a despicable group of  Weasels…ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!
