Skip to comments.‘AMATEUR HOUR’: Krauthammer slams Obama’s sudden decision to delay Syria strike [VIDEO]

[T]he most astonishing thing is the lack of any urgency, Krauthammer said. As you say, Congress will be back in a week. He says, I can strike in a day or a week or a month, as if he is a judge handing down a sentence and the execution can be any time in the future. There is a war going on. Do you think everybody is going to hold their breath, hold their arms, step aside until Obama decides when he wants to go to Congress?
But the idea that you make the case, you leak the details, you tell the world that this has to be done and then you say, Well, I will take my time. Ill go to Congress and well see, Krauthammer said. This should be done in three days. It isnt as if people are not aware of the arguments. You should go out there, bring them in [and] have it done by the end of the week. And the world, I think, will have higher respect. But this looks as if you are a cynic, meaning if you are sitting Syria, Iran, Moscow, it looks like a president who boxed himself into a corner and is looking for a way out.

There is a reason for that.
I sure am glad Krauthammer isn’t sitting anywhere near the levers of power.
Can hardly wait for the news. Even Dem loyalists are tired of him.
Goooood evening NSA
As Rush so often says of Zero - Never be around when a decision is made.
So he will wait for Congress to return in 10 days so he can blame them for delays and the more deaths that happen in the interim.
Meanwhile, go golfing. Maybe this will all blow over.
He just received an order from ValJar that he couldn't refuse.
In other news, I wonder what entertainment Barky and Reggie have planned for tonite?
Krauthammer was hoping for an unconstitutional war and is understandably disappointed.
Now if war is declared, at least it will be constitutional and we’ll know the names of all the neocons in congress.
Good move. Perfect way to save face: Its Congresss fault; they wont let me.
Yep. He is slipping more and more
Obama is probably using a dartboard in the Oval Office to decide foreign policy.
Thing is, what happens if more WMD’s are used before the big vote?
no sh8t what is his problem
HE can strike in a day a week or a month?
This idiot really thinks he is tough-$hit doesn’t he...The little turd-wad is not doing anything himself
Let the republicans take the fall for voting against something Barry has suddenly lost the stomach for.. This is the epitome of voting "Present"
Did you know he actually did go golfing again today, at 3 p.m.?
