Skip to comments.No Syria Attack Without Congressional Approval, Obama Aide Says [Both Sides of Mouth Alert]
Posted on 09/09/2013 6:14:51 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
With support tanking in Congress for a US military strike on Syria, the big question is whether President Obama would go forward with an attack if Congress does not approve one...

The president, of course, has the authority to act, but it is neither his desire nor his intention to use that authority absent Congress backing him, Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken told NPRs Steve Inskeep this morning.
The same mentally ill, empty moralism on Syria, agendas of Obozo Liar, Queeg McAinal, Kerry the Faux Vietnam hero, and congressional rats wanting to bomb Syria could apply to 9/11!
Tonkin Gulf like incident to follow.
You can reach Boner’s office at: 202-225-0600; press 1 for a staffer.
Soon as it looks like a loss bho pulls his request for Congressional support and calls bho a great statesman.
No attack. Just an “aerial ordinance police action”....
Here's the new threat, brought to you by sycophantic ABC: "If you don't play the game my way, I'm taking my ball and going home, and no Iran attack."
This has always been more about Iran than Syria. Iran now has access to forward Syrian bases for its short range ballistic missiles. Unless there is a regime change in Syria and Iran is forced out of Syria, Israel will not be able to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities with impunity. A “limited strike” will achieve no strategic goals. Regime change will require a prolonged conflict with American boots and blood on the ground.
Call Cantor too. Phone: (202) 225-2815.
When he cancels the attack due to intense political pressure, the media will hail Obama for his “great restraint in the face of an international challenge”. /sarc
Personally I think Putin has brokered a deal where Assad will hand over some canisters of strong pesticide and Barry will then declare victory and back down.
Putin approached Obama in private at the G-20. And now Kerry gives a one week deadline. Consider it.
The GOP-E will line up like little puppets behind Hussein (after all, the NSA has provided Barry with certain compelling info on most of them). Also, it will give Hussein a scapegoat - the GOP and congress, if things go sideways.
ANY member of congress that votes for this is a TRAITOR and shsould start cleaning out his office - NOW!
Obamas interest in invading non-enemy Syria has nothing to do with Syria, poison gas, or children.
Obamas interest in bombing non-enemy Syria has everything to do with creating a long-lasting, controversial, DISTRACTION for Congress in order to keep Congress from defunding Obamacare/Boehnerkare.
Obamas Red Herring for the 9-11 Benghazi Massacre Coverup was Susan Rices fake Video story.
Obamas Red Herring for distracting Congress until Obamacare/ Boehnerkare kicks in October 1 is Obamas Crossing HIS personal Red Line distraction speech.
Obama speaks only for Obama, not the US Federal Government or America.
REMEMBER BENGHAZI !
Jellyfish Spine Boehner as Speaker of the House is essential to Obamas continued destruction of the US Constitution.
Nothing will change as long as cave-in artists Boehner and Cantor are in leadership roles in the US House of Representatives.
If Boehner is replaced as Speaker with a fighter such as Col. Allen West, then the Articles of Impeachment for B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, can be quickly issued.
The problem is not with Obama, as he is just doing what Communist Trrants are trained to do.
The problem is not with Boehner, as he loves to lose and wallow in the disgrace of being the worst Speaker of the House, EVER.
The problem lies with our sorry, spineless, RINOs in the House who refuse to replace Boehner with a proven fighter.
BTW, the members of the House can choose anybody to be their Speaker, even if that person is not a current Member of the House.
DeathCare is the next Holocaust in my opinion. Big Bro and Big Sis will determine who lives and who dies. Bend over and kiss your rears goodbye. The Liberal enemies list will be used by their Death Panels. How does that differ from the SS/Gestapo standing beside a boxcar and deciding who went to forced labor camps and who went to the gas chambers?
B. Hussein promised to “Fundamentally change the United States of America,” and by my count, that is the ONLY promise that he has kept.
Why are they giving Syria a week, before a vote is taken? That tells me they’re going to strike regardless of a vote.
