Karl Rove does not agree with how President Barack Obama is dealing with Syria and the potential U.S. response to claims that country’s leader used chemical weapons on his own people.
“This is an unmitigated disaster,” Rove told Fox News Sunday. “It’s amateur hour at the White House.”
As The Huffington Post reports, Rove also chastised Obama’s push to get Congress to OK a military attack in Syria. “He got right up to the edge, and then on Friday has the forty-five minute walks, pulls back and heads off to Sweden and the G20. The energy behind it dissipated.”
The White House continues to battle to win congressional support for military intervention in Syria, amid widespread public opposition.
