"More than just to Congress, the president has an obligation to the American people to explain the rationale for the course of action he chooses; why it's critical to our national security; and what the broader strategy is to achieve stability," he wrote.

And if he doesn’t, what are you going to do about it Boner, cry? Write him a sternly worded letter?

I don’t want the Muslim Brotherhood running Syria and on Israel’s northern border.

Well, I guess Obama’s not the only one who can draw a “red line” that can be crossed with impunity.

“”And if he doesn’t, what are you going to do about it Boner, cry? Write him a sternly worded letter?”””

I think he is serious about this. The letter will be written in ALL CAPS!!!! Of course he will still cave and cry but he sure likes to sound tough.

Something is bothering me about about this. I can’t help thinking this is a distraction for something domestically...

By consult, he means have a beer with Obama while Obama tells Boner what he’s going to do.

The Republic will have to be safe with such a beer summit, I guess, because that is the only thing Congress has done to stop him.

All I hear from the leadership is silence.

These are the most significant issues of our time. The precedent is being set on a daily basis to disregard the Constitution and the rule of law. If we sleep on our rights, we lose them.

Yet, the opposition has been stifled as in no other time in history. The Republican party are the party of Eunuchs, hoping for a long life because they will not get testicular cancer.

The ennui of the party is palpable.

Why is that, Mr. (non)Speaker? What has hit your “off switch” when it comes to representing the interests of the American people, you know, the little guys that work for a living so you can feel privileged and elite?

0bama is itchin’ to install Al Qaeda as Syria’s new leader, just as he wanted to install the MB while asking Mubarak to step down. 0bama scoffs at Congress in dismay that they still think they’re relevant.

No time to consult Congress! This is an emergency!!! Just like Libya where all 0bama got was four bloody T-shirts. The Dictator is going around the world removing Dictators so that in the end he is the world’s only Dictator.

IOW you have let this pretender to the presidency become a dictator because of your own personal ambitions, skewed political views and consummate fear of what the New York Times might write about you. Bah! Humbug to you all!

Notice that Boehner did not even bother to ask for proof that the Assad regime even did this!

Fix is in.

Carney said today in WH presser that they knew that Syrian regime was responsible for WMD attack because they had control of WMDs stockpiles at all times.

Yet, right after Benghazi, Panetta admitted losing track of Syrian WMDs and said that some could have fallen into hands of ‘rebels’.

Both cannot be true!

Folks..they are lying!!

Bohener would have to have a spine and grow a set for him to do anything. nothing herr ober obama does is questioned by the GOP.They merely speak words and have no actions. I won’t even vote for one at this point.Voted since 1968 now i don’t give a tinkers darn what any of them say or do..the death spiral is ongoing. So I am getting myself ready for a bumpy ride.
there will be more gyrations than at a Miley Cyrus concert.

They are always lying. There is no way in the world for common people to know what the real truth is. We can only rely on God’s truth. I don’t know when... but eventually there will be a bigtime war over there. It is coming. That’s one truth we can know.

Instead of talking about it, he and McConnell should propose resolutions in the house and the senate. Even Reid might be hard pressed to deny his fellow senators a right to bloviate.

And if Obama violates the will of congress, it sort of clarifies things.

If he attacks Syria without Congress’s approval ahead of time, he will attack with a fundamentally weak hand unable to sustain any action for over 60 days.

Those camel jockeys are very perceptive when it comes to that sort of thing.

An attack without Congress’s approval will not end well for the Obamanator.

They already think he’s a pussy and an attack without the basic preparation will be a disaster for us.

Boehner should ask Obam, Panetta, Hillary, and Kerry how Syria manufactured all these chemical weapons right under the noses of the UN, the United States, Russia, England, France, etc.

How did this escape everyone's attention? Was it because we were all distracted by George Bush's lies that Saddam Hussein had WMDs, when it was really Assad in Syria who was manufacturing them?

Is that the excuse that we're now going to hear?

It's the lie that's been going on since Ted Kennedy made his 2004 "Lie after lie after lie" floor speech in the Senate.

Does anyone really think Obama cares what Boehner says?

Obama is going to ignore Congress and do what ever he wants to do knowing Boehner and the Republicans will do nothing about it, well in Boehner’s case he may cry.

What a sad pitiful man.

Exactly. This is the some of the greatest *leverage* these two clowns could be handed, and something tells me they'll completely blow it.

They'd even have a number of Dims siding with them, on this, yet they'll STILL bend over and hand 0 whatever he asks them to.

Geez....bribes, and no telling what else, have replaced love of country for most of the current DC crop.

Obama has absolutely no respect for Boner or the rule of law. That's what happens when the speaker bends over and grabs his ankles every time obama walks in the room. Obama will continue to act like a dictator because he knows that Boner is his sniveling bitch.

Another republican stooge tossing out Rose Petals on Obama's pathway to the New Caliphate.

Didn't it occur to any of these republican eunuchs and turncoats that every muslim insurgent group Obama has aided (with their help and support) has been more militant and supportive of Islamic terrorism than the government that we helped oust?
