I have a new post up at American Thinker entitled “Obama and Syria: Words versus Deeds”:

In trying to puzzle out what might be going on with President Obama’s muddled, non-strategic, and fundamentally “unserious” approach to Syria, it helps to remember that Obama believes that words are as good as deeds, perhaps even better — especially when those words are uttered by Obama. He has concluded that words serve a convincing purpose in the moment, that one utterance does not have to be consistent with the next to be credible and serve that purpose, and that none of it has to be followed up with action to be effective.

And why wouldn’t he? Words have gotten him to the pinnacle of the US presidency without deeds ever having been necessary…
