If the president can drag the nation into war against the the will of the people without a declaration by Congress, the republic of the Founders is dead and we have an empire.

Patrick....you are such a silly goose.

You expect Congress to act like men. If someone were to launch cruise missiles against us, that dome would be a nice target.

the president believes he can start a war with another nation to punish them and correct their behavior. This should not be seen as controversial for this administration.after all he believes government, actually his government, has a right and responsibility to punish and correct everyone’s behavior. All hail king George Obama The First. And last American king.

Congress should veto Obama’s war on American... but they make a lot of money from it, themselves, so they won’t.

Boehner should quickly and quietly conduct a poll of the house Republicans, to find out if they support or oppose a US attack in Syria. If the answer is “no!”, then he should immediately sponsor a recorded house resolution to that effect.

While he might argue that this would diminish the authority of the president, that is a fatuous argument, because the office of the POTUS seriously needs to have its authority reduced, no matter *who* is POTUS.

But a resolution *against* the use of force in Syria would split the Democrats, put Harry Reid’s senators in a bind, and would strongly raise the credibility of the Republican house.

It would also expose those Democrats who would support Obama as “war hawks” (though they are in fact ‘Obama hawks’), that would seriously upset their liberal constituents.

It’s a golden opportunity for Boehner to support Republicans with a very popular resolution, and to put Obama and his side on the spot.

baraq took out the leader of Lybia.
Congress did nothing.
baraq took out the leader of Egypt.
Congress did nothing.
baraq is working to take out Assad.
Congress appears to be following the same path.

Congress does not have the stones to refuse to raise the debt ceiling. They sure are not going to stop Barky from bombing Syria and starting WWIII.

In our post-Constitution country, His Majesty can do whatever he wants, attack whomever he wants, obey whichever laws he wants.

This is only the latest example of who really rules this country - and it isn't the people of the United States.

Give the s.o.b. an “assault rifle” with all the ammo he can pack, and set him off on the beach. Let the s.o.b. take care of it personally.
