Obama aide: Sarin dropped on Syrian people? No big whoop! Not our business

http://twitter.com/#!/jimgeraghty/status/331043388151439363

Whoa. What exactly did the aide say?

U.S. official to New York Times: “If he drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?”

— Blake Hounshell (@blakehounshell) May 5, 2013

Foul. As we reported, the White House is now playing off Obama’s “red line” comments about Syria as an “off-the-cuff” remark. It was totally just a gaffe, people!  That article also mentioned the despicable sarin remark made by an Obama aide.

“@drudge_report: ‘If Assad Drops Sarin On His Own People, What’s That Got Do Do With Us?’ drudge.tw/YnK6zI” what?!

— Rosie (@ladymac_rosie) May 5, 2013

The unnamed White House official said, according to the New York Times, “How can we attack another country unless it’s in self-defense and with no Security Council resolution? If he drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?”

who’s surprised? MT @antderosa: Obama advisor “If he drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?” nytimes.com/2013/05/05/wor…

Perhaps not surprising, but outrageous nonetheless. Sarin is a nerve agent used in chemical warfare. More from the CDC:

Nerve agents are the most toxic and rapidly acting of the known chemical warfare agents. They are similar to certain kinds of pesticides (insect killers) called organophosphates in terms of how they work and what kind of harmful effects they cause. However, nerve agents are much more potent than organophosphate pesticides.

That sarin quote is really, really bad…I’m on the fence about military intervention in Syria, but shouldn’t be cavalier abt sarin’s use…

So use of sarin has nothing to do with us…unless there’s a Security Council resolution? nytimes.com/2013/05/05/wor…

Telling.

Somebody should enroll Obama foreign policy advisers in remedial quote school–the sarin line is as damaging as “leading from behind”

#Obama aide tells NYT: “If he drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?” WTF??? Moral Bankruptcy of Obama admin complete

— Edisa (@EdisWorldView) May 5, 2013

“If Assad drops sarin on his own people, what’s that got to do with us?” is the new Obama admin version of “what difference does it make?”.

— Julie (@MsIntervention) May 5, 2013

Unreal.

‘I’d rather have Ebola’: Gov. Cuomo has a sickening idea for people under quarantine

http://twitter.com/#!/JohnEkdahl/status/526805517436334081

Think that sounds crazy? Well, think again, because it may very well explain this:

Yeah, he’d have to be joking. Because no person — sick or otherwise — would willingly subject themselves to something like that except as a last resort.

Now, in the interest of fairness, here’s what Cuomo said, in full context:

‘Shameful’: Sen. Kay Hagan invokes Trayvon Martin shooting in campaign spot

http://twitter.com/#!/FirstTeamTommy/status/526135767203336193

Those of us living outside of North Carolina have likely missed it, but residents of the state have been marveling for nearly a week now at a Sen. Kay Hagan campaign radio spot that attempts to tie Hagan’s GOP opponent, Thom Tillis, to the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida.

Friend of Twitchy Sister Toldjah captured and posted a broadcast of the radio spot.

American Commitment president Phil Kerpen makes the point that has been lost on so many who followed the George Zimmerman trial.

“Quite appropriate’! Dan Bongino endorses Obama’s stupid ‘Bear’ nickname

http://twitter.com/#!/LibertyBelleCJL/status/490230819731283968

Plenty of Americans are fed up with the Obama administration’s “bear is loose” B.S. every time the president ventures out among the Great Unwashed. But according to, Maryland GOP congressional candidate Dan Bongino, the nickname fits this POTUS perfectly:

http://twitter.com/#!/dbongino/status/490194757998505986

Good point! Well played, sir.

http://twitter.com/#!/SarcaSticous/status/490195810198765568

Ain’t that the truth.

Editor of The Nation asks ‘what do the Kochs really want?’ Answers provided

http://twitter.com/#!/JasonBWhitman/status/450482212102627328

Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor of the lefty mag The Nation, recently linked to an article alleging that it’s the goal of the Koch brothers to “discredit science and government.” Vanden Heuvel teased the article by asking what the Kochs are really after:

http://twitter.com/#!/KatrinaNation/status/450088170428694528

At least vanden Heuvel grabbing the anti-Koch baton might temporarily help give Harry Reid five minutes to catch his breath before launching into another Koch brothers fear-fest:

http://twitter.com/#!/derekahunter/status/450091478849945600

What do the Koch brothers want? Plenty, according to tweeters attempting to live up to the fear mongering the Left tries to gin up:
