GOP Congressman Floats Syria Conspiracy Theory

Rep. Joe Wilson asked Wednesday if the administration's decision to attack Syria was made to distract from other "scandals" like Benghazi and the IRS.

WTF? So this is why the tinfoil markets are surging...

"Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) -- the congressman who yelled "you lie" during President Obama's 2010 State of the Union speech -- asked Wednesday if the administration's decision to attack Syria was made to distract from other "scandals" like Benghazi and the IRS.

"On April 25, the White House legislative director Miguel Rodriquez wrote that ... the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons. With the president's red line [crossed], why was there no call for military response in April?" he asked Secretary of State John Kerry at a Foreign Relations Committee hearing.

"Was it delayed to divert attention today from the Benghazi, IRS, NSA scandals; the failure of Obamacare enforcement, the tragedy of the White House-drafted sequestration, or upcoming debt limit vote?"'

Is Crazy Joe drinking from the same water cooler as Michele Bachmann? Does he really think that John Boehner and Eric Cantor are "in on it"?

If this were a conspiracy, it's one that works for the GOP, as it distracts from the Do-Nothing Congress Critters who haven't yet passed a budget and are putting our economy in even more peril, and causing more suffering for citizens through harmful budget cuts. Do Republican voters even have a problem with paying their elected officials to sit on their asses for eight years and doing absolutely nothing useful just because a Democrat is President?

Hat tip to Jed Lewison.
