    Who Will Look More Ridiculous?

    Putin played Obama & Co. like a fiddle. They can't very well sit there with a comical look and an awe shucks, they have to try to save face...

    So, when trying to take credit for what Putin did, who will look more ridiculous?

    Because there are gradations? Not a bit of it.

    Putin didn't score any points. He's as self-absorbed as the Second Coming in the White House. What he has done is to extricate himself from his own initial bravado, with greater foresight than Obama. Make no mistake, Pukin' just genuflected on the world stage.

    I have a military mindset in that I blame the person in charge, regardless of who actually screwed something up. The NSA scandals, Benghazi, Syria, etc. All of these things happened in his organization under his watch, and because of that I place the blame squarely on his shoulders.

    A good leader takes responsibility for his organization, so yes, Kerry will look like a jackass (as usual), but ultimately Obama was his superior officer who blessed off the decision.

    Did you catch the prez's speech last night? OMG, what a joke. Calling for a pause on a vote in Congress, when the votes aren't even there? Really? As far as your poll goes.... my vote goes to Obama but that jackhammer Kerry proved himself just as much the idiot this past week. Can I vote twice?

    Will Assad be more compliant than Hussein was?
    I may be wrong.

    I did not, but Peg Noonan basically summed it up in a nutshell earlier in the day. From what I have heard of it, she nailed it.

    As Kerry is considered a jackass amongst his own, it really does only fall on the other one's shoulders...

    You forgot to include yourself as an option. As this poll is nothing more than an Obama hater's glad handing pep rally.

    Obama had painted himself in a corner. The diplomatic developments were his only way out. And he saved face rather nicely. This was the only way Obama and Putin stood a chance to both back down and save face at the same time.
    By the time people realize that Syria will not comply, the spotlight will be off of the matter and we can get past this distraction and focus on bigger issues such as Iran, our debt, and the 45,000 Americans who die every year due to lack of proper medical care.

    Are there degrees of ridiculosity?
