WASHINGTON (AP) — Two Republican foreign policy hawks said Monday that President Barack Obama needs to make a strong case for attacking Bashar Assad’s Syria if he wants to win congressional backing.

At the same time, Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said it would be a mistake for Congress to reject Obama’s request.

Why? McCain is a progressive liberal. THEY really believe that IF they say it , it is true.

Go Home McCain, you jackass. You are a disgrace to the United States, who saved you.

If this congress passes the Syria war with no additional evidence of info about the goals and exit plans, we are looking at president Rand Paul in three years.

Your turn McCain. Okay, you got double snake-eyes. Let's see, Broadway? No, it's chance. Alright. Pick up the card Mr. McCain, and read it to us.

ADVANCE PIECE TO ARIZONA. DO NOT PASS GO. DO NOT COLLECT $200 DOLLARS.

P. S. YOU LOSE YOUR TURN FOR THE REST OF THE GAME.

When, as is inevitable, John McCain passes on, I will rejoice in the same way and with the same fervor, that I did when Ted Kennedy did.

Notice how the two guys who went to Egypt to visit with the Muslim Brotherhood are the same two guys hyping a Syria strike??? Hmmmmm.. I’m thinking McCain and Graham are working to create a situation (Syria) which overshadows revelations about 0bama’s dirty plots with the Muslim Brotherhood in Benghazi resulting from the upcoming trial of the MB in Egypt.

I disagree. We’re led by kakistocrats.

FRiends, I gotta wonder about all this Syria stuff. Are we being played for suckers?

Lemme explain. As we all know the ‘rat operating philosophy is to “never let a crisis go to waste.” The timing of this is certainly suspicious. Its not like this is the first or last time the Syrians have used this stuff. Probably not the first or last time this year. So why the sudden urgency? Why now? And then why was it suddenly OK for this to wait till Congress reconvenes?

Could the underlying issue be the upcoming fight over boehnercare? I found it very interesting how the gop wing of the uniparty went into hiding over the Syria issue. Then they came out very quickly with their response after the Saturday I-love-me fest. Gosh. It was almost like it was all ready to go. You don’t think it could have been, well, coordinated do you?

The fact that mcqueeg is beating the war drum shouldn’t surprise us. But is it possible he’s just part of the distraction? Cover for boehner and friends to simply ignore the boehnercare defunding because, well gosh golly gee, we had to talk about Syria?

More questions than answers I’m afraid....

The president thing is up in the air. Never underestimate the stupidity and short memory of the American voter.

What is for certain is we will be looking at a mess and another domino in the Rube Goldberg machine the communists have designed to destroy this country.
