No offense, but thats idiotic. Selling a decision to withdraw troops from a place where they were never supposed to be in the first place is preposterous. Thats like saying the President should have sold his decision to Congress on ending Obamas totally illegal DACA executive order before canceling it.
The president has implacable enemies in the house and Senate, they are called Democrats. The president has very unreliable allies in both those Houses and they are called Republicans. The president did not take the steps that virtually every president in this situation would have taken to at least give his allies in Congress a heads up and, where possible, secure their assent.
The failure to enlist Congress, the circumstances in which it was announced, the fact that it is on the eve of impeachment, the reaction of our allies in Europe, the implications for enlisting Muslims to fight and die against crazed Moslems, the impact on the Kurds, and the fact that the egotistical old lions in the Senate don't think that it is "preposterous" that he come to them and kiss rings, suggests this matter was bungled even if we approve on the merits.
No offense, but thats idiotic.
Spot on. I agree with you 110%.
