GOP will attack Obama no matter what he does

Charles Krauthammer’s Sept. 14 column, “Epic failure,” reminds me of an old joke. To paraphrase, if President Obama was filmed walking on water, right-wingers like Rep. Chris Collins and pundits like Krauthammer would say, “Look at that! He can’t even swim right!”

I thought the goal was to stop Syrian President Bashar Assad from using chemical weapons. If that was the case, it looks like Obama’s going to succeed without firing a shot. If there’s any failure, it’s in the GOP’s desperate desire to get traction out of an issue and Sen. John McCain’s desire to get buyers for the excess inventory of arms dealers.
