House committee bursts into laughter; Obama butt of joke

When President Obama bungled his handling of the Syrian crisis, he didn’t just embarrass himself and his country on the world stage.

He turned his red lines into punch lines.

obamabozo0929Republicans attending a meeting of the House Rules Committee on Saturday laughed out loud at a Democratic congressman trying to browbeat them into including money for Obamacare in a continuing resolution that would fund the government into the new financial year, according to CNS News.

The joke?

Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., made the mistake of trying to sound tough during an exchange with House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers, R-Ky., CNS News reported.

“You say the president has threatened to veto the bill?” Rogers asked.

“No. He hasn’t threatened. He said he absolutely will veto,” McGovern responded.

“He’s drawn a red line, has he?”

“Yep,” McGovern answered.

And the room burst into laughter.

According to CNS, McGovern wasn’t fazed, smiling as he added: “And, you know what? I  think he’s very serious about this.”

If the president is serious about this red line – as opposed to that one he drew over Syria then tried to deny —  it says a lot more about the fecklessness of his administration than it does Republicans in the House of Representatives.

The whole world — even his most insipid stateside supporters — knows what this president’s red lines are worth.

Do they laugh out loud in Tehran, too?
