Syria ‘One of the Most Humiliating Episodes in Presidential History’

Obama is an all around embarrassment.

The National Journal’s Ron Fournier says a Democratic strategist “who works closely with the White House” told him that Syria “has been one of the most humiliating episodes in presidential history.”

Fournier says the Democratic operative “requested anonymity to avoid political retribution.”

In the wake of Obama’s address to the nation Tuesday night, other progressives have expressed frustration with his handling of the Syrian crisis. Progressive Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank said Obama’s speech contradicted statements by Secretary of State John Kerry just 11 hours prior to the president’s remarks.

“Kerry can be forgiven for being at odds with the president,” writes Milbank. “The president, in the space of his 16-minute address, was often at odds with himself… Nuance can sound a lot like a muddle.”

Before the speech, progressive New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd blasted Obama’s “flip-flopping, ambivalent leadership” on Syria.
