Lame duck

Mr. Obama has just successfully destroyed his second term as President. If he attacks Syria, he will have embroiled the US and the world in another quagmire — and expanded and produced an even bloodier and chaotic Syrian Civil War, with an even more massive refugee problem for Jordan and Lebanon, thereby destabilizing those nations as well. If he does not attack, he will confirm his indecisiveness and weakness in the eyes of his opponents… both in Congress and abroad (including Iran). Even if he does not attack, he will have already lost most of his enthusiastic supporters (me, for one). He will be a lame duck president for the next three years. What a tremendous miscalculation and waste.
