. . . On whatever the hell it had a grip on. I’m not sure what that was, other than approval ratings. . .
I just got done posting an article about how the Middle East has begun to solve it’s own problems (however feebly) without the White House, now it seems that the Congress has gotten into the act of moving beyond the idiot president and into negotiations with Damascus directly:
White House criticizes Pelosi’s planned Syria visit – CNN.com
“We do not encourage and, in fact, we discourage members of Congress to make such visits to Syria,” said White House deputy spokeswoman Dana Perino. “This is a country that is a state sponsor of terror, one that is trying to disrupt the (Prime Minister Fouad) Siniora government in Lebanon and one that is allowing foreign fighters to flow through its borders to Iraq.
Just wait for the “Hanoi Nancy” comments from The Right. Trust me, they’re coming. But this isn’t a celebrity negotiating surrender with the enemy. This is serious politicians dealing directly with serious issues that the White House simply cannot. The whole world is doing an end-run around the president. Sad. Very sad.
“I don’t know what she is trying to accomplish, and I don’t know if anyone in the administration has spoken to her about it,” Perino said. “In general, we do discourage such trips.”
Yes. We know, that’s why we’ve all stopped listening.
