President Barack Obama is "wet behind the ears" and "bumbling" on foreign policy issues, including the possible bombing of Syria, radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh claimed Wednesday.
"The Iranians, the Russians, everybody's watching this. They're understanding that we've got somebody that's really wet behind the ears in terms of qualifications for all this stuff, just bumbling through this," Limbaugh said on his radio show.
Limbaugh also called the president "unserious" over his canceled meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Obama is opting instead to meet with Russian gay and lesbian groups over their country's new law banning homosexuals.
"He says no to Putin at the G20. He punts Putin. But he's going to go to Russia and meet with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people. It's unserious. Obama's a clown," he said.
Obama's meeting with Putin was originally scheduled to take place as a part of the president's trip to the G20 Summit this month in Russia. Obama canceled the meeting after Putin overruled U.S. requests to extradite National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, then granted him temporary asylum.
Limbaugh expressed embarrassment over Obama's handling of the Syria struggle, given that the world is watching.
"To me this is embarrassing. This is just not how a great power goes about dealing with what we're told here is a terribly consequential matter," he said.
Obama first called for U.S. intervention in Syria in response to alleged chemical attacks by their government on citizens. In a turnaround last Saturday, Obama said he would take the issue to Congress for a vote, yet added that he might order an attack without their approval.
"Meanwhile, I'm led to believe, and I'm sure you are, too, that what's happening in Syria is a matter of gravity, grave consequences, ... chemical weapons, Bashar Assad, Muslim Brotherhood running amok, Middle East powder keg, all of this stuff," Limbaugh said.
"It's the theater of the absurd. This, to me, is incomprehensible," Limbaugh summarized.
"And yet it's happening."
