Matt Lee shows why he is known as a no-nonsense reporter who won't be satisfied with political jargon and non-answers.
From The Blaze:
Associated Press reporter Matt Lee does not mince words.
At a Thursday press briefing, Lee struggled to understand why Secretary of State John Kerry keeps referring to President Barack Obama’s decision to seek congressional authorization for a military strike on Syria as “courageous.”
And his argument is simple: How is it “courageous” to seek permission for something he believes he can do anyway?
“I don’t understand why he is so full-throatedly in favor of this,” Lee said. “He over the weekend said the president was acting courageously by taking this to Congress, and I don’t understand what is courageous about asking permission for something that you say you don’t need and to do what you believe to be the right thing not just morally but in general.”
“Can you explain why this is a ‘courageous’ move, and why the secretary would call it a ‘courageous’ move?” he asked.
At the heart of Obama's graceless offer to permit Congress to have a say in whether the United States takes military action in Syria is the president's indecisiveness. He still insists that the decision is his to make, but by including Congress, he hopes to have someone else to spread the blame onto if things turn out poorly.
what is courageous about doing something you are legally required to do? we are ruled by blubbering criminal morons.
“Can you explain why this is a ‘courageous’ move, and why the secretary would call it a ‘courageous’ move?” he asked. LMAO. She spent 60 seconds tap-dancing, finally gave up. If she was half as smart as she believes herself to be, she should have said “no, you’ll have to ask SoS Kerry that at your next opportunity. Next question?” These government people are MORONS, but what’s worse, is they’re morons with nuclear weapons under their command. If that doesn’t scare the bejeesus out of you, you’re NOT paying attention.
