Candy Crowley: ‘Who cares’ that Russia got diplomatic edge in Syria?

U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., said recent developments in the Syrian chemical weapons agreement brokered by Russian President Vladimir Putin weakens America’s international credibility.

“Well, obviously I’m skeptical,” Rogers told CNN’s “State of the Union” host Candy Crowley on Sunday. “But any day that we can do something to take chemical weapons off the battlefield, take them away from [Syrian President Bashar al-]Assad, and/or stop them from being, from falling into the hands of Hezbollah or al-Qaida, it’s a good day.”

Rogers said the problem was that the plan was confusing to the American people and to members of Congress.

“The president couldn’t quite close the deal,” Rogers said. “So that indecisiveness, I think, gave the diplomatic advantage to the Russians. This is a Russian plan for Russian interests.”

Crowley jumped on that statement.

“Who cares?” Crowley asked. “If it has a chance to get rid of chemical weapons, do we really care that Russia got the diplomatic edge?”

Rogers explained why Americans should care.

“Well, if it were just that, that’s true,” Rogers said. “But if the president believes, like I do, that a credible military force helps you get a diplomatic solution, they gave that away in this deal. I’m really concerned about that.”

Reminding Crowley that the deal is still just a “framework,” Rogers said the agreement still has to go before the United Nations.

    Helloooo,,,Ms. Crowley Wake TF up…There is no deal yet…the game will continue to change as time moves on…it’s how Putin operates and he is a liar and murderer himself. Americans are so naive about the Russians (and especially our president and THIS Russian)…this man was head of the KGB. It’s the same guy who GAVE Syria its weapons and backed Assad’s genocide…and Hezbollah and Hamas who are murdering Israelis and everyone else in Lebanon and Syria…it’s the same guy who throws people in jail in Moscow who disagree with him and then sends them off to Siberian labor camps…and sends Iran nuclear reactors and processing equipment…and who was buddies with Caesar Chavez….WTF up!! I’ll bet Obama now wishes he would have actually placed those missiles on eastern European soil…welcome to the real world, Mr. Soetorro. And if she doesn’t understand the world power implications if Putin claims the moral high ground she is dumber than she looks. Memo to Crowley: the vast majority of the rest of the world understands better a big stick whack across the forehead than a touchy-feely speech from a world class weenie…they are afraid of Putin, especially the Euros.. Crowley better bone up on her Russian and Farsi…The Russians are interested in causing and maintaining as much turmoil as possible in the Middle East because that tension drives up oil prices…almost the sole source of foreign exchange for Russia, who remains one of the world’s largest oil producers. Please connect the dots, Ms. Crowley!

      Crowley doesn’t care about the facts. She’s so far up Bozo’s butt, it’s a wonder she can breathe on her own.

    Candy is a complete ditz who does the bidding of her liberal friends in the White House. Her “who cares” reminds me of Hillary’s “what difference does it make…” At least Candy is an obvious media hack. Hillary was supposed to protect and defend the Constitution and the people who represent it abroad.

    Millions of Americans care, Candy. Perhaps you should lay off the candy for a bit.
