When you've lost William Rivers Pitt...
Apparently, the lie direct sticks in Pitt's craw. Why now, after so many lies, I don't know, but I guess everyone has their own tipping point:
[I]t was President Obama himself who deployed the line to beat all lines during this demented catastrophe of a rush to war. During a presser in Sweden on Wednesday morning, he actually said with his bare face hanging out for all to see that, "I didn't set a red line, the world did," regarding the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
Got that? Mr. Obama absolutely did not tell Chuck Todd on August 20, 2012 that, "We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation." And he totally didn't box himself in with that comment to the point that his only recourse was to throw this hot potato at congress and hope they catch it, so stop saying that.
We've been hearing "shut up shut up SHUT UP SHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUP" for years from Obots, but now that Pitt's on the outside he hears it, too. It's a funny old world.
