The petulant narcissist is not to be trifled with ... the temper tantrum that one will throw is going to be epic.
It's nice to know that Obama's credibility is on the line. If a "no" vote, or even cancelling the vote, means Obama becomes a lame duck, that will be the best thing that has happened to America in these five terrible years.
If Obama is hobbled, he can’t play golf. Oh the Humanity!
Let’s see. Rooters thinks that Obama will be MORE popular with the anti-war left if he goes in and starts bombing women and children in support of a gang of church-burning, Christian killing Mohammedan fanatics?
The more evil he does, the more popular he will be? Even though at least 2/3 of the country are against this war?
I hope all this craziness just means that the Obama worshippers feel their backs against the wall, and are absolutely desperate. But who knows?
I’ll take a somewhat contrarian view - I’m starting to think that the won will use the congress as a fig leaf to slowly back away. Putin called his bluff and now he needs a way out.
The Joker is on us.
I think freepers need to lead the charge to ensure this bill makes it to a vote. Obamas war plan voted down by a huge margin will have an impact
I want a recorded house vote.
Nothing but loss in it for democrats and nothing but gain for republicans who vote no. The democrats can throw their president overboard or support a war than the vast majority don’t want. The republicans can vote no and show that they are the party of restraint.
Meh. This is America. Regardless of what happens, no one will remember in three months. We’ll be on to some other disaster. Except for here and a couple other places does anyone talk about the IRS, Benghazi, etc? Nope. And they won’t talk about this. And when 2014 rolls around, this might as well be a million years ago.
Sadly, that is the nature of America.
I actively want to destroy is presidency!
I wonder how they care going to manage to stock archives in his library that leave a favorable legacy. I can't imagine what it might be like if he tries to build one. Could he be the first president since Roosevelt to not have a library?
It is still unbelievable to me that we have such amateur in the Presidency. If the “One” was even contemplating establishing “a red line”, before he announced it, why didn’t he round up domestic and international support (if any existed), before he started flapping his lips? Either the State Department or the “One” or both are incompetent in putting our reputation on the line like this.
We need to somehow make sure that Boehner doesn’t cancel the vote to try to save anybody’s face on this one.
The few real conservatives that can't be bought will be opposed and undermined by a big (Saudi) money RINO GOP-E until there are too few to stop a use of force resolution.
The solution to this is to put the Saudis and company out of business and let Europe beg for their oil and gas.
Go to war to save Obama’s presidency.
Or don’t go to war and have Obama humiliated and embarrassed on the world stage.
What a (white) guilt trip! What tripe!
That sounds like something out of the Middle Ages when feudal lords went to war because someone pissed in their Cheerios (okay, gruel, because Cheerios hadn’t been invented yet).
I’d say ALL their a$$es are on the line. That includes those in the Senate and the House who vote “YES” for military action.
It will be a NO vote.
Tuesday’s speech may be the first I ever stomach for more than 2 minutes.
“Frazier goes down!”
