Obama: “My Credibility Is Not On the Line, International Credibility is On the Line.”

Obama’s credibility? Perish the thought. Sure, he’s the one calling for unilaterally bombing Syria, policies that he opposed earlier. But that has nothing to do with his credibility.

As a national and international moral authority, he has decided that it’s the credibility of the world and Congress that are really at stake.

“My credibility is not on the line,” Obama said. “International credibility is on the line.”

He added: “The question is, how credible is the international community when it says this is an international norm that has to be observed? The question is how credible is Congress when it passes a treaty saying we have to forbid the use of chemical weapons?”

Now I don’t recall the world announcing that there would be a red line for Syria. For that matter, Obama opposed attacking Iraq, despite its use of chemical weapons.

So the international freelance moral authority hasn’t abided by his own international norm.

Turkey was recently accused of using chemical weapons against Kurds in Iraq. Obama’s red line not only didn’t move, but he’s backing a war by the same people responsible for that alleged attack.

He defended his earlier statement that the use of chemical weapons by Syria was a “red line” that Assad must not cross.

“That’s not something I just made up. I didn’t pluck it out of thin air.” Obama said, referring to international standards prohibiting the use of chemical weapons in combat. “I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line.”

No it didn’t. Obama did and he might as well own it.

    O’Bozo’s credibility has been in the ‘Toilet’ since he first ran for office!

    Obama’s credibilty? That is like talking about an elephant’s wings. The pathologically lying SOB hasn’t told the truth about anything during his entire presidency, and probably his entire life.
    How scared should everyone be that our president thinks he can deny comments that are on video and instantly alter people’s clear perception and memory? He believes he can control what people see, feel, and think. No wonder he is so enamoured of Marxism and Islam. Obama is a delusional megalomaniac that believes he possesses superhuman powers.

      What scares me more is that we have a voting public stupid enough to re-elect him

        Certainly, ignorance is an enemy not so easily vanquished.

          “Ignorance” ….now that is an interesting word. Our modern understanding of the word “ignorance” is that it means uninformed or uneducated, but if you look at the meaning of its root, “ignore”, you can see that over time we gradually, and collectively*, chose to define “ignorance” so that there is no moral responsibility to the meaning. Ignorance should still mean knowing something but choosing to ignore it….kind of like American voters have been doing for years.

          Obama failed miserably in his first term — not to mention did nothing of worth in any elected office he has ever held — but far too many people ignored his record, or lack thereof, and voted for him for no other reason than the color of his skin. Is it any wonder than that they assume those who voted against him did so for the same idiotic reason?

          In his legendary prose poem, “The Generous Gamester,” Charles Baudelaire asserted that “the worst sin is ignorance.” Obama is the ultimate proof of that truth.

          BTW, The Generous Gamester is the devil.

          *See what deception results from collectively altering definitions so that moral responsibilty is expunged? Today we know it as Political Correctness, only now, the meanings are changed selectively and in strict accordance with the Left’s political agenda.

            Pride, ignorance, and treachery are a dangerous combination. For sure.

      When you have a slavish media that will report what he said today and ignore everything he said before, why wouldn’t he blatantly lie? We have always been at peace with Oceana. We have always been at war with Oceana. Whatever he says, they’ll just report it and it will be “true” until the next “truth” emerges.

  • nomoretraitors

    Of course Obama’s credibility isn’t on the line. He has no credibility to put on the line, so he’s quite correct

    Obama: “My Credibility Is Not On the Line,

    it never is for some reason and yet he holds (hostage) the highest office in the world

    strange how that works that way.

    Notice that inane smirk on obama’s face ; trying to look like he is a serious man imbued with gravitas, when all he is is a hollow shell endlessly amused at his own self of importance , striving for sheikdom.
    the imam of the WHITE HOUSE ON PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE continues his
    mission of change waving his unearned peace prize before him and obliterating any sense of pride america once had. It is a mad dash to save face and cobble together some kind of patriotic unity lest everything america once stood for goes completely down the toilet history , aided and abetted by the chief FLUSHER
    OBAMA.
    That GOP members mccain and boner are in support of this buffoon epitomizes the moral morass the usa finds itself in , a directionless wallowing around like pigs in trough , churning up the swill for all to see and gawk at wondering how
    after such nadirs of common sense and dignity have been achieved, how they could possibly sink any lower into the scum of their political degeneracy.
    No doubt between obama and his camarilla of equally inept buffoons , they will find a way!
    the new short CHANGED America. No refunds unfortunately!

    The only red line Obama cares about is the one Reggie Love gave him on his glory hole.

    So tell the international community (e.g. the UN) to fix it or pull the US out of the UN and create an effective international community.

    Obama now blames his red line on the rest of the world. He is not the source. The rest of the world hasn’t shared his angst at doing something because it was crossed. The rest of the world listened to Obama’s speeches and thought Obama would take care of the problem himself. Obama of course kicked the can down the course, Congress can be blamed as the source.

    This narcissistic mens’ room attendant is never responsible or held accountable for anything. That rodeo clown was right.
