So far, Coats is saying that Iran poses a direct threat to the U.S., but Syria does not.

Coats saying a limited strike on Syria will embolden Iran. Administration has not addressed this question.

Hmm. Maybe he will hold strong.

Blech. Still on the fence. Has major issues with Syrian strike, but wants to hear from the president.

Coats will wait until after President’s address tomorrow, before announcing his decision. Says there are many unanswered questions.

Everybody’s going to start up with “letting diplomacy work.”

This is so choice.

I can barely wait for Barry to have his “talk” with the nation tomorrow.

Obama’s interest in invading non-enemy Syria has nothing to do with Syria, poison gas, or children.

Obama’s 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 Obama”care”/Boehnerkare.

Obama’s “Red Herring” for the 9-11 Benghazi Massacre Coverup was Susan Rice’s fake Video story.

Obama’s “Red Herring” for distracting Congress until Obama”care”/ Boehnerkare kicks in October 1 is Obama’s “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 Obama’s continued unchallenged 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 Tyrants 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.

Tick-tock, long-time House RINOs, tick-tock - - - - .

Obama and Holder are publicly speaking about their ‘plan of the week’ that are just more smokescreen distractions to divert attention away from the incompetent manner Obama has handled his day job.

The best indicator of a PHONY ADMINISTRATION is the number of its REAL SCANDALS.

Commie Tyrant Obama’s current talking points are thus smokescreen distractions for the products of Obama’s first 4 years in office:
* Refusal to close US Southern Border to Mexican illegal alien invaders
* No known un-forged records of Place of Birth
* No known un-forged records of University grades
* Benghazi Massacre
* Dereliction of Duty as CIC during Benghazi Massacre
* Cover up of Benghazi Massacre
* Destruction of Seal Team Six
* Cover up of Fast and Furious murder of US Border Agent by Exec. Order
* IRS-Obama’care” Commune Death Grip on Wealth and Health
* NSA-Gestapo Death Grip on all citizen’s communications
* Use of Courts against News Media
* Use of Supreme Court to install Un-Constitutional Obama’care’ Tax
* Destruction of the US Coal Industry
* Refusal to permit XL Pipeline construction
* Trillion Dollar a year Federal Overspending
* Monthly violations of the US Constitution by Obama
* Use of Exec. Orders to bypass Congress.

REPLACE sniveling coward Speaker Boehner with a FIGHTER!

It is time to IMPEACH Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro.
_______________________

Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, (aka Barry Soetoro), continues his unopposed efforts to expand Totalitarian Obamanation in Liberty-based America.

Where are the Republican opponents of Tyrant Obama?

Why have the Articles of Impeachment for Tyrant Obama not been issued by US House Speaker Boehner, or Pro-Welfare Republicans Cantor or Ryan?

Have House and Senate Pro-Welfare Republicans formed a cave-in pact with Pro-Welfare Democrats to protect Tyrant Obama?

The main thing that Speaker Boehner is afraid of is being blamed for doing his job.

Speaker Boehner’s job now is to shut down the NON-ESSENTIAL parts of the US Federal Government until Obama’care’ is ABOLISHED, and keep it shut down for however long it takes.

Obama will continue to ruin America as long as Boehner is Speaker of the US House of Represenatives.

Four + years of Boehner has proven Boehner to be unfit to combat Tyrant Obama.

It is now up to the Members of the House to replace Boehner so that the new Speaker can shut down the non-essential parts of the US Federal Government ASAP in order to ABOLISH Obama’care.’

I here lots of crap about how bad theses weapons are, but I’ve heard nothing about how they know it was Assad’s forces that used them. Just more of the same. The sheep are suppose to just get upset because WMDs are bad, mkay.

Don’t know much about him, but it is very difficult to be an engaged listener.

Another thing Judge Nap mentioned was they should be exhausting diplomacy avenues before any military action.
He was speaking in reference to the Putin offer (drudge).

And another fecal floater democrip stinks up the feted fen of Harry Reid with ‘gun control’ fiction, rather than debate the complete stupidity of little barry bastard boy’s Syria/Middle East campaign of community organizing using the US military as his step and fetch its.

Is this US Senator Menendez really this ignorant and incompetent when stating: “This is NOT an act of war . . . “ Last time I read the rules of warfare, any attack on a foreign country, including a foreign countries embassy is an “ACT OF WAR!”

Could anyone imagine Russia, or say China debating a surgical strike in their respective countries on the United States of America and stating with a straight face, this is NOT an act of war!

The liberal socialist are so use to speaking to the law information voters, they forget exactly who they are trying to convince when making such an utterly feckless statement and then having the insane belief the American people would actually consider such a statement from a so called “representative” all designed to support this out of control socialist Muslim President who hates America to begin with!

Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh!!!!!!!!!!!

It is fascinating to watch how the media (enemy of the Republic) is fashioning the Russian proposal into something Kerry and little barry bastard boy came up with! We The People are dumbed down to the point that ANY LIE will be swallowed gladly. Sad really ... I know what I want to hunt after TSHTF.

That flicking tongue is a side effect of a very strong valium-like drug built up in his system. He is being evaluated as the alternative to cankles by the global elitists. He must maintain his calm at any cost during his evaluation phase.

I believe I just heard Dempsey blathering about all the planning and war gaming that goes on, including attacks on our embassies. I hope someone walks through that door to bring up Benghazi.
