BillO says conservatives oppose Syria because they want to hurt Obama; Mark Levin RESPONDS

Charles Krauthammer says he believes anti-war Democrats will eventually support Obama on Syria because, as some have admitted, they will be loyal to the president. Given that, BillO argues to Krauthammer that some conservatives oppose Syria because they just don’t like the president, because they want to hurt him politically. He says it’s all about ideology but Krauthammer disagrees:



While Mark Levin doesn’t call out BillO by name, he’s clearly responding to BillO’s attack on conservatives and says opposition to Syria has nothing to do with Obama and everything to do with Syria having nothing to do with our national security interests.

Nukeman tvlgds weird- I replied to this and it’s nowhere -it may eventually show up as a duplicate. I agree with you-I watch maybe SIX of those channels, and if I could get a digital antenna that would work in my house, so I could get my local channels, I’d cancel uverse completely. It’s a vast wasteland of CRAP

When he said the Blacks still needed help with affirmative action. I couldn’t understand. He did that last week. He protested to much about the race baiters. Then said that last week. Still don’t grasp.

Bill o is not a conservative or a liberal.. he is a capitalist.. he has been desperately trying to appear neutral politically since obama ran against mccain. In fact, when he had obama.. he went soft on him. On purpose, so he could expand hia audience. I for one have had enough of bill o and his slobbering over Huddy. Its enough. Get a room bill.

It isn’t his red line. This man would and could spin anything that makes him look bad. Faster than a top. He brought his campaign crew it to spin this. This morning I’m hearing Oh The Children. What about the Children in Africa killed with machetes. That isn’t gruesome enough. You want to help children. We shouldn’t have pulled everyone out of Iraq. That has gotten to be a problem why? Oh let me guess it is Bush’s fault. Look at Libya. It is much better since we attacked it and left. Everything our Pres. touches turns to crap.

BS61 Isn’t it amazing that we can watch these debates nowadays, on both sides of the Big Pond! I’m watching your Committee Hearings, House or Senate, and wish that our MPs would be as sharp in their committee hearings as yours.
But yes, the debates in the House of Commons are something else again – and that one was definitely a great parliamentary occasion.

BillO is beginning to sound just like a Dimocrat; that won’t help him with his audience and if his audience dwindles so will his sponsors……then it might be bye, bye BillO.

CTBtweets Exactly right. More than that, Obama is high maintenance. Self destructive and high maintenance. He will destroy everything in order to blame someone. He doesn’t want to go it alone in Syria because then he will own that war. So he goes to Congress and doesn’t immediately call them in because he wants this to fail.
He always wants to be the target of adulation. When that doesn’t work, he goes to the blame game. That’s textbook high maintenance.

He didn’t bluff about the WMDs…he sent them to Syria before we invaded. One of Saddam’s generals said he had an agreement with Syria that if invasion appeared imminent, Syria would take them.

Well I still like O’Reilly…he is the only person who speaks like him with any kind of clout among the general population. Hannity, Levin, Limbaugh are only heard by their fans while Bill is heard by the liberals all the time. More importantly, he is the only one who can seem to bring change when he chooses to. Almost every time he stands up for something and states he isn’t going to shut up until it changes…it changes within days or weeks. Whether we like it or not he wields a lot of power and is a useful asset.

P.S. I strongly disagree with him on Syria and this is the first time in a while that I think he is 100% wrong.

@Nukeman I just found RuralTV – because I turned off Barbara Boxer on CSPAN supporting war and couldn’t take it. and couldn’t put on Fox’s the Five with Bob Beckel, so I ended up on rural tv.  This city girl was fascinated.  They had on a quilt history and how it was used for the slaves – maybe other people were aware but I was not!

Obama has only gone for congressional approval because he has not found it elsewhere and he desperately needs someone to blame for his foreign policy failures.  In the case of Republicans they will be damned if they do support Obama and damned if they do not.  The ineptness of Obama’s policies and presidency will never be discussed.

This is why tv personality based news is dieing. You ostracize your base a bit for a little shock factor just to garner some minuscule attention. What people want are facts & Bill obviously hasn’t been keeping up w/ them.  Here’s the biggest fact Bill needs to know – the one fact all Libertarians/Conservatives know:  
Obama has never gone to Congress for anything he couldn’t execute himself.  In FACT Obama executed a LARGER  military role in Libya than what he wants to do in Syria – no Congressional approval there.  So why the show to go to Congress now?  Its a joke to our form of governing & a slap across the face of America. How can anyone take American leaders seriously if we can’t even abide by our own rules & chose to follow them when it suites our needs?

Most of these morons on Fox News aren’t calling out the illegality of the strikes, especially against Peter King who keeps claiming the president has the authority to do so.  He is absolutely wrong, and he has absolutely not read it.

The Syrian Civil War does neet meet this criteria for the War Powers Resolution.
(c) The constitutional powers of the President as Commander-in-Chief to
introduce United States Armed Forces into hostilities, or into
situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly
indicated by the circumstances, are exercised only pursuant to (1) a
declaration of war, (2) specific statutory authorization, or (3) a
national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its
territories or possessions, or its armed forces.
I understand the humanitarian compassion of people, but it’s misguided and misplaced.  There are other ways to be compassionate, and dropping bombs isn’t one of them.

I was VERY surprised on Bill O’Reilly’s stance on Syria as well! We all know that Bill is no Obama fan, but we have Russia, China, and the U.N. saying that it was NOT President Assad who was responsible for the gassing of the Syrian people, and the Canadian Free Press, BBC, and other Foreign Correspondents are reporting the same thing! They are all saying that it is the REBELS (al Qaeda) backed by Obama who are resonsible for killing the Syrian people! Why would we want to fund and arm al Qaeda? PLUS, 400 surface to air missiles are STILL missing! What kind of damage could they do to our Navy ships, men and women over there? Obama has all of the GPS information, and MANY Americans DON’T trust him at all! Remember our Seals? Remember Benghazi? We have a TRAITOR in the White House, folks. And as far… Read more »
