Skip to comments.On Syria strike, Obama administration ramps up pressure on Congress, shows flexibility
Posted on 09/03/2013 2:26:31 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
As the [Clown's] administration launched what it described as a flood the zone campaign to persuade Congress to authorize military action against Syria, officials said Monday that they are willing to rewrite the proposed resolution to clarify that any operation would be limited in scope and duration and would not include the use of ground troops.
Their signal of flexibility came amid indications that Obama is picking up tentative, conditional support in what promises to be a difficult battle for approval of military strikes.
...Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) who has been among the leading Syria hawks warned that if Congress rejects the resolution, the consequences would be catastrophic. The credibility of this country with friends and adversaries alike would be shredded, and there would be not only implications for this president but for future presidencies as well.

Uh, I've got NEWS for ya, John McKook...your buddy's credibility was shredded long, long, ago. He has been laughed at and ignored from day one, when he sent $900 Million to HAMAS in the very first WEEK after he seized power....and tried to close GITMO....and tried to get the Olympics to go to Chicago....and ate ice cream while women were being slaughtered in Tehran...
No, Johnny boy, the Clown's credibility has been shredded along with yours....how is that Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt workin' out, John? How is that Benghazi attack being blamed on a youtube video workin', pal?
Arizona, do us all a favor and replace this mumbler with a person who respects the Constitution. Please.
Zero’s flexibility will be tested by his swishy friends, I’m sure.
Russias early warning radars have detected the launch of two ballistic rockets in the eastern Mediterranean, Russias Defense Ministry stated. The launch reportedly took place at 06:16 GMT Tuesday.
The trajectory of the missiles is reported to have been from the central part of the Mediterranean Sea towards the eastern landmass.
The Syrian embassy in Moscow currently has no information on the incident.
Armavir, an early warning system against missile attack, is situated in southern Russia. It is run by the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces. They provide radar coverage of the Middle East. There are two radars there, with one of them facing southwest and the other southeast.
Rodeo clown diplomacy...
All he needs to do is get his nose in the tent with the approval of Congress and then it’s no holds barred and he can blame it on Congress. Can’t people wise up to the evil in the white hut that is permeating out country?
I hope whoever is controlling the US ballistic and space defense systems have been able to keep Barry’s grubby paws off of them, but I doubt it.
Good Lord, I had to apologize for Carter, Kerry, and now McCain.
Dear Republicans.....VOTE NO!!! Is it better to “save face” or “lose lives”??
What is a rodeo clown for?? To take the bull's (ours) attention away from the fallen cowboy's (Obama) situation (IRS Scandals, Benghazi, F&F, etc) that could get the cowboy (Obama) gored or killed!!
THIS is INDEED Rodeo Clown Diplomacy!!
Let me see, Iraq which used chemicles as long ago as in its war with Iran, and more recently against the Kurds was not seen by the dems and his majesty as a treat BUT Syria which may have used them against its own population, not outside its boundaries is a threat to the entire middle east and more laughingly countries his majesty considers our allies?
Vote no, embarrass the jackass on the international stage and let him go it alone. Do not give him cover for what would be a violation of international law as he has zero backing outside of a few puppet states.
In a hood thugs eyes, saving face is better.
We are lead [ruled] by a hood thug.
The NSA must have a lot on McCain and Graham. They sound desperate. Any Republican that caves to Obama and these quislings is suspect.
The American people are lemmings,the Congress has no balls,this is all a pile of crap.Allahu Ackbar
