Legitimate Much?

President Obama held a press conference Thursday in which he said that Assad had “lost his legitimacy to govern” and that “he needs to step down.” He did not spell out what gives him the authority to dictate the actions of other heads of state, but he does so as a matter of course.

He went on to say that Assad had “lost his legitimacy when he began killing his own people,” which is an interesting thought. Just a couple of years ago Obama said that giving the order to kill an American citizen, and his son, was “one of the easiest decisions” he’s made since he became president, so, what does that say about Obama’s legitimacy?
