Posted on 09/06/2013 8:23:58 AM PDT by quimby
Congressional aides in both parties tell me that the chances of President Obama winning House approval for military action in Syria are so bad they actually doubt the House would ultimately vote on it if failure seemed certain.
Two new whip counts of House members by ABC News and the liberal Firedoglake web site show a majority of House members firmly or leaning against intervention. The Washington Posts more conservative count stands at 204 no votes, only 13 short of the majority needed to kill the presidents request.

They better vote, and they better vote NO!
If they don’t, Odumbass will take that as a reason to continue
Prevents Obama from hiding behind GOP Congress, or blaming them for his in-action!!!
Doesn’t set precident of denying him the authority to act.
He said he doesn’t need their authorization!
I’m waiting for him to claim that without the vote, he’s unable to discern the will of the American people....
Cowards. Vote on it. Make Obama own it.
If you can’t figure out how our elected representatives have decided, by virtue of this in-action, then a billboard wouldn’t help.
Yes, I know, you want your guy on the record...big deal.
They're betting you'll keep on paying them no matter what.
and if memory serves me...the Democrats were very concerned about NOT humiliating BUSH during his term ;)
It's racist not to give the pres__ent what he wants.
You flipping morons, I want to know who is for and who is against.....names, I want names.

“What am I missing?”
The elites don’t believe the people should have any say in anything, so they’d prefer that the voice of the people not be heard, and the people speak through their represenatives in the House.
The idea that the people would rebuke the president is abhorrent to them!
It's pretty bad. But if it never comes up for a vote the media can ignore it more easily. And they will.
The shameless, America-hating rats would be chomping at the bit to humiliate a Republican president.
The House MUST vote, or get rid of the spineless leadership immediately. GOP reps must DEMAND a vote.
Why not vote?
Actually, the Democrat newsrooms would spin the story to paint the Republicans as racists, cowards, and traitors, etc.
The excuse they are using:
Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel. This is the GOP's chance to own Obama for the rest of his term. Apparently, the leadership prefers to keep the sweet deals going.
I’m up seeing Obozo humiliated.
He’s a humiliation just by his existence.
He played the vote to put the burden on the House, so pick up the burden and vote. He will NEVER appreciate a face saving move by the GOP so all the other important things coming up are still going to be contentious.
Well the British Parliament didn’t seem to be too worried about how it would look.
BHO is and has been a daily humiliation to the USA since the day he took office what else would be new?
