It's dishonest because it's motivated from the right's perspective as opposing Obama. And of course, the mainstream right will win the day I suspect anyway and the tea party/libertarians will be sidelined. And as for the American left, I don't see any real motivation to call the propagandists on the obvious lies of Assad using chem/bio weapons. I hear them quickly crumbling on that notion and reverting to an argument that Assad has it coming anyway. I don't accept that but I would find it too tedious to argue.
