Ed Schultz: The “spite in conservative hearts” for Obama is the “only reason they are against war for the first time, ever”

posted at 12:41 pm on September 6, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

The intellectualism. The nuance. The insight. It’s overwhelming me.

Isn’t this an interesting collection of folks right here. What does it take to get a Republican to be against an airstrike? What does it take a Republican to be against a war or confrontation? Correct me if I’m wrong, folks, you can do it on Twitter — don’t the Republicans always run on the foreign policy that they are the experts? That the Democrats are weak, and that they are the ones that are so concerned about America’s security? You know, as the evidence comes in about the use of chemical weapons, how can they oppose the president? And a growing number of far right-wing Republicans are coming out and opposing an airstrike on Syria? Believe it or not, the righties like Rick Santorum and Marco Rubio and Michele Bachmann. And then, of course, there’s Donald Rumsfeld, Mr. Expert. They are saying no to an airstrike on Syria — and I agree with them. But for, of course, completely different reasons folks. The Republicans, they don’t hate war. They hate this guy: Barack Hussein Obama. They just cannot stomach the fact that they might be agreeing with him, ’cause they’d have a lot of trouble back home. They have fought this president, obstructed this president, their whole focus is to make him a failure. How in the world can they support him on going up against Syria? The level of spite in conservative hearts for this president is the only reason they are against war for the first time ever.

Yes, because as all of us here know, Republicans are unabashedly for war in and of itself, and not actually for the long-term goals and careful military reasoning behind war (which, by the way, the president is very much lacking in this case). Duh.

Gosh Ed, let’s flip what you liberals say and see the truth.

The Liberals love affair with Obama is the only reason they want this war or any war. That,and the fact that it will probably help your jihadist friends in al Quada to eventually take down the America you all hate.

I wonder what would happen to their numbers if HA decided that they had just become a fringe media outlet worthy of being ignored?

It’s gotta be good for at least 20% of the remaining stats given how often HA links to them.

This would be the ideal time to remind the media that those GOP members have been replaced by a newer, moderate GOP. Getting brow beat for 4 years over the wars, losing Congress, then the Presidency with a super-majority in Congress, you ain’t going to make that mistake twice.

If Assad wins, then over a quarter of the Lebanese population will consist of displaced Syrians, unable to return to their homes. This is just one of the hugely destabilizing outcomes of an Assad victory.

Syria will be similar to, but worse than Egypt.

And if the rebels win, wouldn’t the refugees thus created (the Assad’ supportes) be in the same situtation?? That of Seeking refuge somwhere, creating a humaitarian crisis, hugely destabilizing outcome blah, blah..

jimver on September 6, 2013 at 8:06 PM

To understand why most thinking AMERICAN PEOPLE do not trust new age Demoncrats contingency operations, or whichever politically useless term they fabricate to obfuscate a declaration of war, look no further than Vietnam .
Ike kept the troop count at 900.
Kennedy ramped them up to 233,000.
Johnson hiked them up to 536,000.
Nixon cut them gradually by about 150,000 per year until the Demoncrat congress cut funding which brought on the slaughter only communists seem to have mastered. He still get blamed by left-tards even with facts on his side.
IronicallyMoronically, Demoncrats like to keep company with commies.

Your inability to realize the failure of Iraq is astounding.

bayam on September 6, 2013 at 6:03 PM

Iraq failed entirely due to Obama’s inability to negotiate a post-withdrawal agreement, something similar to the SOFA that we have in place in in Europe and in other oarts of the world…but nice try anyways…

Much worse if the rebels win I suspect. Then all the Christians and Allawites could end up refugees or dead. One upside, maybe they will kill a lot of hezblahblah.

The whole point of 0bama’s ‘Arab Spring’ is to destabilize the entire middle east. He has been wildly successful so far. If he manages to get his brethren in AlQ / Muslim Brotherhood to take over Syria, soon after, Jordan will fall. Then the UAE,, then Saudi Arabia will fall. If the US installs the Jihadis in Syria, by 2016 the entire middle east will be run by people who want to cut your head off.

Assuming that the misadventures in Syria don’t cascade into a nuclear war with Russia, and wipe out the civilized world which is a distinct possibility due to your hero’s ego.

Oddly, the folks with ‘progressive’ values have allied with the evil constitutional conservatives to try to stop this debacle… It is only you lunatic 0bama fanbois and the shallow thinking moderates who continue to want to invade a country which is no real threat to us.

Wrong Schitz-After not seeing our national interests served by prolonged conflcts in Iraq and Afghanistan,and after seeing Obamao screw up foreign policy in the Middle East,we simply don’t see any reason to help either side in Syria.It is not in our vital interests to stop Syrian Islamo-fascists from slaughtering each other.We are tired of not having complete and total victory as our only strategy.If they were to gas Americans, I would expect us to wipe the damn country off the face of the earth.For now-let them gas each other!

Kenosha Kid on September 6, 2013 at 11:16 PM

Actually Schultz has a point, he’s just too stupid to see it.

The truth is, the character of the man who leads the nation to war matters. We will not be led by a man who does;t understand it, can’t explain it, doesn’t want to be responsible for it, doesn’t want to win it, and ultimately doesn’t want to lead it.

It’s pretty simple, Ed. Pul your head out.

Spite. Well, yes there is some spite…he pretends to want the conservative answer with the Generals, but then he undercuts them with not finishing the mission, and hesitation as a rule of engagement for our troops. The fighting in Syria is real, not based on Obama’s feminized Rules of Engagement that don’t result in winning.

Obama doesn’t want to win anything, he just wants to Demonstrate a lesson, and the critical timing to give the spanking has past. The only thing to do is make another forward looking threat and follow thru.
