One interesting moment in what was largely seen as a weak press conference for President Obama Friday was this moment when the Nobel Peace Prize winner referred to the process of securing resolutions from the United Nations as “hocus pocus”:
You know, there would be some resolutions that were being proffered in the United Nations and the usual hocus pocus, but the world and the country would have moved on. So trying to impart a sense of urgency about this, why we can’t have an environment in which over time, people start thinking this we can get away with chemical weapons use–it’s a hard sell, but it’s something I believe in.
To see the leader of the Democrat Party be this dismissive of the United Nations in the run up to his rush to war in the Middle East has to be disconcerting to the House Democrats Obama will need to win congressional approval of his Syria strikes.
