Tuesday’s speech may be the first I ever stomach for more than 2 minutes.

“Frazier goes down!”

Obama’s “credibility” is the liberal way, the media way, to sell democrats on the need to stand by their man. It’s, they think, what will keep defense conservatives rooting for a Syrian campaign.

The truth is that no member of America’s military should die just so a president can save face.

And, America should never be Al Qaeda’s Air Force, Ground force, or sea force.

If they thought there might be a few white people they could bash, yes.

This is a propaganda piece aimed at the supporters of dear leader. They can’t get the ‘rat base to follow dear leader into war, so they have to make it about his “presidency.”

Ed Asner revealed the truth - The anti-war Left won’t speak out against our PINO/Usurper in Chief because HE IS BLACK - of course if it were a Republican Black President, do you think Eddie would be holding his tongue??? Alas, one must be Black & a Leftie to retain fellow Leftie support.

It’s impossible to be black and conservative. In those cases the color chart says dark, dark white.

This whole thing is fishy. This is way too public for the Democrats. If they seriously wanted to attack Syria, they would have gone quiet. Harry Reid is involved. Nancy Pelosi is involved. Over Syria? Syria? There’s more to this agenda. And in this case, I’m not sure that it’s money. If it was all about money, they’d go quiet, like Libya. There’s a reason for the Democrats to draw attention to this.

Hah - so true. Black conservatives obviously have “sold out” to the Man, and therefore can be totally discounted and ignored.

If obama’s credibility is not on the line, as he says, then why would he go ahead and attack if congress votes “no”?

He believes he can go on TV Tuesday night and “explain” it to the dumb people and they’ll see it his way. Unfortunately, he’s probably right.

Only those within the clueless, putrid realm that is the MSM
believe there is a presidency to salvage.

“My credibility is not on the line,” Obama said...

Obama NEVER has had an ounce of credibility!

"Few could show such calm under so much pressure to “evolve” his thinking, while warning that another use of chemical warfare will come with swift and sure justice. It kind of creeps me out just to type that drivel."

Don't forget his "calculus", flexibility, equations.

And, as he said himself, he will always side with Islam. So, he doesn't side with America.

McCain said he would start impeaching if he went after a no vote or put boots on the ground.Has he back tracked on that yet?
