Voting Present is the New Statesmanship: Jay Carney Says Americans Appreciate Obama's Unsteady and Incoherent Syria Positions Because They Respect a President Who Doesn't "Celebrate Decisiveness For the Sake of Decisiveness"

Little confession: I misread "Decisiveness" as "Divisiveness" and found this to be a funny joke.

But now that I see he actually said "Decisiveness," it's hilarious.

Obama, the president that people love because he makes such efforts to avoid being decisive.

If you're like me, it's going to take a few minutes for this to land. Then it's going to be very funny indeed.

“When it comes to our approach to this problem in Syria, the president has been very clear about the need to respond and why it’s important that [Bashar] Assad be held accountable,” Carney replied.

“I would simply say that, when it comes to being commander-in-chief, I think the American people, at least in my assessment, appreciate a commander-in-chief who takes in new information and doesn’t, you know, celebrate decisiveness for the sake of decisiveness,” Carney added.
