Ted Cruz Warns on Syria: U.S. Military Shouldn’t ‘Serve as Al-Qaeda’s Air Force’
Mediaite ^ | Sept 3, 2013 | By Josh Feldman

Posted on 09/03/2013 7:27:49 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Senator Ted Cruz said on BlazeTV today that while he credits President Obama for giving Congress a chance to vote on Syrian strikes, he’s still very much opposed to action, arguing that it would be a massive mistake to come to the aid of rebel forces with ties to al-Qaeda.

Joe Pags, filling in for Glenn Beck, told Cruz that Obama will likely steamroll Congress even if they vote no, noting it’s not really clear who the good and bad guys are in this fight. Cruz agrees, saying that any attempt to arm the rebels would be senseless because you “don’t give weapons to people who hate you.”

Cruz accused the president of pursuing action to “protect… his public relations,”...

Of course he’s right! Who in Congress will oppose him?

The more I think about it, the more convinced I am that Obama wants to create refugees to flood into Jordan and stir up the islamists there.

I do not know how Bummer thinks this wag the dog war will help his image. The majority of the populace do not support it, so it is just his elite shenanigans with the rest of his comrades.

Nothing to do with the rest of us except loss of friends, family and tax dollars.

Sen Leiberman was on Hannity's show, today. He basically confirmed what Sen Cruz said about 0's "public relations".

Hannity asked if 0 has lost credibility on the whole Syria debacle. Leiberman said something to the effect of no, not at all...but we need to go forward with this strike to achieve ... credibility.

Agreed...The Narcissist-in-Chief has no aversion to helping the enemy we’ve been fighting for over ten years, it doesn’t affect him or his family. This turkey is pathetic.

You know, there's probably very little I agree with Dennis Kucinich about politically, but I have respect for his being consistent and not being a hypocrite. Watching Kerry beat the war drums is just too much.

You know, the day that Kucinich said this I mused to my conservative buddy that it’s a pretty sad day when the GOP is spouting BS, and Kucinich sounds sane. Bob

We souldn goto war and give those keys to a Prez who cancels the F22 and other war safeties.

We should send the DHS if we are doing a first responders chemical mission over there. Syria is now the affirmative action subsidized food stamp Obama family colony.

Leiberman was an idiot yesterday. Lieberman is what he is... a progressive socialist. He sold his soul long ago. He is doing satan’s bidding as surely as obama is.
