    These brief moments of insanity always help to put things into perspective.

    Ordinarily I think McGovern is a liberal progressive dolt, but I may have to agree with him as it may be Obama's only way to limit the amount of damage to the Presidency and his Presidency.

     

    Obama's red line has become a check he can't cash.  He has no support for it and there is no support even though we all know that it damages the power of the Presidency.  So let's agree with the President and say its an international red line not Obama's ; OK he's a flip flopper like any good liberal just ask our new Secretary of War John Kerry.

     

    So once we agree its an international line; we can only act with international action. Not individual or what's known as make me a target action.  Obama can backtrack; let him lie and say the info isn't as compelling, let him waffle that he's concerned that the rebels US action might help may not be any better then Assad.  Let him withdraw the request and say he's studying it, and let him study it for another 1200 + days.

     

    McGovern's idea is Obama's best shot to get away from of this sticky wicket.

    As far as diplomacy goes, the thinking behind Powers logic makes sense, and is certainly something a civilian leader would want to explore especially since a positive outcome would prevent the need for our military to become engaged, thus endangering the lives of our people and more people on the ground in Syria.  That the plan didn't work doesn't matter, ruling out good options that may yield results is what matters.
