I had to sit in a room most of today with a crowd that would be best described as "Democrats since grandpa came over from _____" borderline flyover types. I don't believe that more than two knew each other, but this group of men and women started talking about the Middle East, and I came away convinced that any politician who sticks American troops into Syria is going to become anathema. More of these people have had it with the current CinC than I would have thought.

Or what Boehner?
You’ll cave, again?
Cry about it?
Give it up, loser.
You know he won’t, and you know you won’t do anything about it either!

Poll seems to reflect war weariness, perhaps futility of “reforming” muslims.

You are suggesting that muslims "can" be reformed?

Maybe dear leader did not get that memo.

The whole thing is insanity! These weapons have been in Assad’s hands for decades. They have never been fired or given to Islamist terrorists and could have been negotiated out of Assad’s hands long ago more than likely. No one even bothered to my knowledge....why? Same thing with Quadafi..he kept these animals at bay..so did Mubarek.

Now? Who knows? Obama has his Islamist AQ animals running all over the Syrian countryside and entire Middle East with manpad rockets from Benghazi for Christ’s sake!! They have taken over WMD storage sites, beheading and killing Christians, Muslims,Alawites, Jews, etc now.

It won’t be long...with our open borders..one of those WMDs is going to go off in a major city....thanks to Obama, Hillary and McCain.

If the United States is not at risk, does the 60 day statutory “free war pass” apply?

I see no threat to US national Security justifying intervention.

In fact, there are more threats to the US if we do intervene.

Does Obama really think that the opposition not react at all?

Or does he want that reaction, so he can further clamp down on our civil rights?

A problem presented, a reaction demanding action, and a solution provided. The formula for dictatorship.

Right. See Mr Boehner putting an invisible phone up to his ear and mouthing the words “Call me” with a wink.

“Consult” with Congress? Shouldn’t Congress declare war? Consult? I think Boehner is confused about Separation of Powers, t the very least.

What’s this? Boehner sobered up enough to make a coherent utterance?

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

We don't want them running Washington either, but they now do.

Whether the reason or not, Obama would like the “Syria Attack” on the news when the monthly unemployment numbers come out IF Gallup’s mid-month survey was correct about it jumping back up to 8.9% or so.

If we take down Assad’s regime which rebel power group will take over. I heard that there are 9 of them and that 7 of the 9 are linked to al Qaeda in one way or another.

So, take down Assad in favor of al Qaeda. Been there done that. Doesn’t work.

Or what, Boehner? It’s not like Obama faces any real consequence in doing so. This ‘man’ and his objections are a joke.

No such thing as must when it comes to The One. I would think he'd want to share the responsibility on this one. There being no good guys in Syria, the good guys won't win.

And if he DOESN’T, Boehner will cry and pull a tantrum. He might even pout.
