Delusional Obama Adviser: We’ll Get Enough Votes From Congress For Obama’s Syria Folly

They’re so cute when they talk out of their asses.

Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes on Monday predicted that the White House would win enough congressional votes to strike Syria.

In an interview on CNN, Rhodes downplayed polls showing a majority of Americans oppose a military attack and weak support in Congress.

“We think at the end of the day the votes will be there in the Senate and the House,” said Rhodes told “New Day” host Chris Cuomo.

Rhodes conceded that it would be a difficult vote for many members of Congress.

We understand it’s a tough vote for members of Congress but we frankly think it’s important for everybody to come forward and to be counted through that vote because these are tough decisions that we have to make as a country,” he said. “We’re not going to win every vote but we believe that at the end of the day we have the strongest case to make that frankly inaction sends a message.”

Notice all the “we” talk now. How things change when you’re desperate.

    I’m struck by the curious placement of “frankly.” It didn’t modify any of the verbs–for instance, “believe”–that it ordinarily would. What it’s doing in front of “inaction” suggests that he was getting to the end of the thought and recognized that he hadn’t yet told us that he was telling the truth, which he wouldn’t have to do if, you know, he was telling the truth.
