The US Congress appears close to crushing President Obama’s dreams for a punitive Syria military adventure, thus ostensibly rendering the President’s credibility to a state of suspended animation at best.
Reading the bones on the ground, what’s Team Obama’s next brilliant idea to get as many “Yes, you may bomb Syria” votes as possible?
Simple: CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS TO THE RESCUE!!
Just like THAT MOVIE where the seldom seen nor heard Knee-gro employees of the firm were stored in some virtual basement until an urgent matter concerning “their people” arose, President Obama will present a case for war to the CBC next week, and has dispatched National Security Advisor Susan Rice to make that subterranean trip to the lair of these (pre) post-racial relics and get them jacked about the idea.
Of course there are a few problems with that proposal.
First, some CBC members are likely pissed about being more or less ignored by the White House for the past five years.
Second, some of these members are already beefin’ about the idea of Missles for Syria Humanity.
Third, some CBC members are likely pissed with being told to shut-the-hell-up about Syria!
Meanwhile, Obama needs their support for this war. Badly.
So…what kind of shiny, new pony will this President need to promise these folks in order to have his way?
