Don't make me laugh.
Make no mistake- Obama has set a trap. A cagey, crass political trap. It is a trap designed to bail his a$$ out of the corner into which he's painted himself.
Obama has set the trap for the GOP.
A year ago Barack Obama blurted out the now-infamous "red line" words regarding Syria. The classic Obama hubris has boxed him in. He told the world how he would teach Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad a lesson- that the US has an "obligation" to attack Syria.
A war-weary United States has little appetite for another conflict and polls reflect this. Barack Obama is sensitive to one thing above all- his own political viability- and his plans for a Syrian attack reflect this. He said an attack would be limited in scope and regime change was not a goal. And now he wants to consult with Congress before he acts but lest anyone think he's become a weenie he's said that he's willing to go it alone.
Obama had no interest in Congress' approval when he toppled Gaddafi in Libya. So you have to ask yourself- why now? Why does Obama want to involve Congress now?

Meanwhile, while many look for the Machiavellian reasoning behind the chess-master, the rest of the world looks on and laughs at the fool they clearly see.
I would rather vote no, than lose 1 American life, spend 1 American dollar
or take the live of innocent Syrians. As Palin says, Let Allah sort it out.
Remember, Obama,.better.the whole world think you a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
The public does not support going to Syria.
Jesus, not everything is some elaborate plot by this idiot. Just f*cking vote NO.
I wonder ...
what if the Senate and House passed a resolution voting “no,” but on the condition that the President make the final decision in writing?
Mr. President your leadership sucks. I am not supporting you in any battle, much less a war. And get your damned foot off the desk. Where the hell were you brought up?
THE FOREIGNER no doubt looks the fool, because he is one.
THE U.S. can never look a fool, because we are not one. The stink from these mouth farts from the third world countries will never reach the american people.
This is not about regime change, nor war, nor supporting the MB or Assad.
This is about THE GOLD. The REAL GOLD (not the tungsten filled crap that has flooded the market) was being kept hiddin in Ghadaffi’s Libyan National Bank. The consortium of international bankers of the Western Allies had put it there (what we call the FED RES).
Obama went after Ghadaffi with Cruise Missiles to try and convince him to abandon the GOLD. Didn’t Work. Ghadaffi had shipped the GOLD out to a SAFE PLACE, impossible for WESTERN ALLIES to gain access to.
As payment for moving the GOLD and hiding it, we let Ghadaffi be butt-raped and murdered in the streets of Libya. Not just ‘let’, but ARRANGED IT.
So.... where did the GOLD GO ? Well, where is Obama threatening to shoot a bunch of CRUISE MISSILES again ?
SYRIA. It was hidden in Syria, and Obama (as well as leaders of other Western Allies) have been told by the Banking Elite to get it back, or else.
England, France, etc. were involved in this and willing to help, like they did in Libya. However, Obama has made a complete mess of it, and the other Western Allis are backing down for the moment because the citizens of their countries think Obama is an ass, and the mission is stupid, and won’t support it or the politicians tasked with completing it.
So.... Obama is out there by himself, willing to sacrifice Syrians, and US Soldiers to get the GOLD. The game is how to ‘swing it’ so the public supports it.
All the claims about Assad gassing or using biochem weapons are just ways to try and get the nation’s support.
International support keeps dropping, and Obama has to keep calling MULLIGANS.
The problem for us is that sooner or later, it will happen. The Consortium of International Bankers (FED RES), the High Rollers in Finance, and all the politicians who had their GOLD STASH hidden in Libya will have to act or perish.
This is what is happening with Syria, and as I keep saying.... It’s all about the MONEY (in the form of GOLD BARS). It always is.
“”And get your damned foot off the desk. Where the hell were you brought up?””
Just sent my email to the WH. Everyone needs to do it. I used the “contact” on whitehouse.gov to send it. I kept it civil but it was difficult!!! I said he probably wouldn’t see it but could someone please do him a favor, in case he was never taught any manners, to let him know that we, the people deserve respect, and the many fine men who have sat at that desk deserve the respect. For him to behave otherwise is tacky!
Pile on. Doesn’t make sense for us to complain to one another. The WH needs to hear from all of us - kind of reminds me of GWB’s words on 9/12/01..
Voting “present” would send multiple messages, all them in The Won’s face.
What a grand opportunity to give Obama a 'No'. This would not only slow down the crazy train heading for Syria, but would also undermine Obama on Obamacare and immigration.
Obama has handed his "opponents" a golden opportunity to turn him into a lame duck president one year into his term.
But of course the Republicans aren't really his opponents, so they will not see this as the grand opportunity it is and once more will let it sift through their hands.
What a bunch of schmucks.
I agree with you and Sarah that we should stay out of this conflict. Rather, we should just let them go duke it out on their own. Besides, what if they will blame the Republicans for voting no on going into Syria if it comes to that?
Since when, did do the right thing become a political decision?
Syria....one little problem when everything else is going so well for the Democrats.
Charge of the Light Brigade.
Perfect! Where do I get one?
