.. Uhhhh, and in .. Uhhh summary,, uhhhhhhh
What message will WE send? Indeed, Pres__sent Obama.
If we don ‘t toss this bum and his cohorts to the curb,, can we blame the world for ‘hating’ us. It was and is all about him, y’know.
He must have felt so pressured by his ‘peers’ in his early years. His formative Islamic years.
Obama is wrong. This is not about who we are as a country. This is about whether we can strike a real national security threat to the USA and take it out. It is then in our national security interest. Otherwise, it is not. We’ll leave sending messages to Western Union.
Regardless, I’m totally behind any of our forces placed in harms way, whether on air, sea, or land in proximity to Syria.
Those who truly support our troops pray for victory!
I was under the impression our littler tin horn dictator Obdinga did not need Congress anymore and would bypass them on all decisions?
Come on lil Dicktator, make a decision instead of voting “Present”.
You do not have the nads to even make a decision against a land mass the size of Utah.
A bus load of rednecks would just kick the living crap out of your gay muslim goat humping rear and your brown shirts.
The noose is getting tighter for dictator in chief. He is standing on a very slippery slope and all real Americans are waiting for that one mistep. Pray that he takes that one step into the abyss.
Translation — the fix is in. He must know he has the votes. There are very few in Congress with a clue.
Just say NO.
>> and why it has such profound implications for Americas national security.
This would not be an open-ended intervention. We would not put boots on the ground. Instead, our action would be designed to be limited in duration and scope. But Im confident we can hold the Assad regime accountable for their use of chemical weapons, deter this kind of behavior, and degrade their capacity to carry it out. Our military has positioned assets in the region. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs has informed me that we are prepared to strike whenever we choose. Moreover, the chairman has indicated to me that our capacity to execute this mission is not time-sensitive; it will be effective tomorrow, or next week, or one month from now. And Im prepared to give that order.Wait for Pooty's next state visit and snuff him and his second-favorite dictator.
Of course we support our troops, xzins. I just hate to see us get involved here. I don’t trust the administration and their information as to who/how/etc. on the chemical weapons.
I think Obama is stirring another hornets’ nest here in the ME.
I will always pray for victory when our troops are committed to an action, though.
Ummm...hey dumbass... it's not your decision, you HAVE TO do that. or didn't you learn that as a 'constitutional scholar'
And they called Bush a stupid cowboy? This guy brings stupid to an entirely new level.
If he wasnt such a dumbass he would have said I have called this meeting to announce that I intend to ask the congress to authorize use of force
I can do this if I want to but I wont because Im gonna ask for permission first. Not because I have to, but because I decided to. I can really do this myself if I wanna. But I wont. So nyahhhh btptpttthpth
It's for the children!
I hate to say it, but this move of throwing it into Congress’ lap was the smartest thing Obama could do, after a bunch of really stupid steps to get here. He never should have made his statement about a “red line”, never considered the consequences beyond immediate politics, and regrets having painted himself into a corner. Now if he gets a yes vote he can say it was a bipartisan policy. If it doesn’t he can blame the Republicans for being callous and undermining the credibility of the US. Either way, he’s off the hook, and that’s the most important thing for the narcissist in chief.
I heard that, and was amazed nobody on FOX commented on it. I started wondering if I really did hear that right.
His intro made me angry right off the bat. “Everybody?” How about ladies and gentlemen. Everybody? Sounds like a teenager making his first speech in class.
Whaddya expect from The Emperor?
