Obama’s Syrian mutation

Fox News put together a little video timeline of the Obama Administration’s rapidly “evolving” positions on Syria.  It’s pretty striking when you see it all edited together into one five-minute clip, which Fox News was too professional to enliven with kazoo music and wacky sound effects.  I haven’t seen a politician mutate this rapidly since that evil Senator got blasted with radiation and turned into a puddle in the first “X-Men” movie.

In fairness, some of the conflicting statements don’t come from President Obama himself, but previous Presidents have been held responsible for the statements of their top officials.  In fact, I thought they spent a good deal of time in meetings, briefings, and conference calls, getting their positions straight.  Perhaps that’s another rule that has been changed to accommodate the current occupant of the office.
