That's not it.
If the House votes "no" and Obama orders military action, he will have to be removed.
Boehner dreads that, more than anything.
Dreads that? Hah! He has been told to avoid that, told by the people that hold his ‘secret’ files. Bonehead is an owned whore.
Obama will narrowly win the vote in the Senate and he will go ahead at that point. Same as Kosovo.
I don’t think the Senate feels it **has** to do ANYTHING, even if it is known that the White House has been overtaken by a foreign enemy combatant who is running roughshod over everything America is. They’d view it as an opportunity to giggle about the weirdos who think America is worth preserving.
