Bill O’Reilly: Obama May ‘Never Recover’ From Syria

Bill O’Reilly sees no way President Obama gets out of this Syria debacle “unscathed.” On his show Tuesday night, O’Reilly and Charles Krauthammer rolled their eyes at the plan now being offered by Russia about Syria handing over its chemical weapons. Krauthammer dismissed it as “entirely a Russian ploy,” bashing Obama’s strategy as “all talk and no action.”

O’Reilly said in his Talking Points Memo that Obama may “never recover” from the fallout, even with Democrats trying to credit him for bringing this new plan about. Krauthammer said Obama simply “walked into a trap.” O’Reilly sighed at how much Putin has been manipulating the whole process. He cried, “You can only emasculate a man so much!”

Krauthammer shot back, “With Obama, you never know.”

O’Reilly asked Krauthammer about the idea that Obama’s long-term plan is to diminish the U.S.’ power in the world. Krauthammer suspected that Obama holds a “great skepticism of American power,” and the only reason he decided to take action on Syria is because he has advisors pressuring him to do so, but the president simply has “no stomach” for military engagement. But Krauthammer doubted it influenced Obama’s missteps on Syria, saying it’s better to believe in “incompetence” over “conspiracy.”
