Look, I’m against Obama as much as anyone, if you doubt that, read my past posts.
That being said, I’m pro-America more than I’m anti-Obama. I think we’re all pretty much in agreement here that NOT going into Syria is the best thing for the country. IF, and this is a big if, going to Congress is Obama’s way of backing away from his rhetoric while trying to save face by saying he didn’t have Congressional authorization as an excuse...well, I’m okay with that, because the end result is NOT going, which I think is the best thing for the country.
I love rubbing his nose in crap as much as anyone, but we can’t have it both ways. If we’re going to criticize him going into a civil war when we are best served letting both sides kill each other, its not honest or to our benefit to block all the exits and dare him to proceed.
No one on this thread, at least, is daring the One to go ahead. We are just enjoying watching him lead from behind one more time.
I predicted this speech would happen because he is going to St Petersburg, Russia, next week as a guest of Vlad Putin. How could he show up with the many ‘world leaders’ who will be there at the G20 Summit, if US missiles were raining down on Syria. The following week contains September 11, on which day a “Million Muslim” march is scheduled for our National Mall. Another bad time to be bombing muslims.
So he had to punt. It was inevitable.
And of course the answer to what will he be doing for the rest of the Labor Day weekend: playing golf, of course. No problem. No worries!
