“having just passed up on the chance to take military action in Syria.”

This is just a ploy to divide the republicans in congress. Obama probably got a call from Axelrod friday evening. He’ll still go ahead with the attack.

"a ploy to divide the republicans"

Ploy? Perhaps highlight. We're just divided on the issue.

Fall guys.

If he gets Congressional approval, and if resulting actions in Syria turn into a boondoggle, he will have someone to blame — the Republicans in Congress.

If he acts unilaterally, he only has Team Obama — SoS Kerry and SDEF Hagel — and the Joint Chiefs to blame.

Good catch!,p> Allowing congress to make zeros decisions,where no move is a good one, gets the monkey/problem off zero's back. Actually, making a decision is never in zeros "yob" description.

Remember its all political. If the bent axel can get a Congress full of pompass a-holls with a 9% like ability rating to make zeros decision for him its fire a few bombs Assads' way and then on to the debt ceiling and then amnesty.

All of the scandals of the summer forgotten. Exactly what they are after. Using us once more to solve their political problems and we always oblige.
