CNN ^ | October 31st, 2013 | CNN

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee criticized the Obama administration at a hearing on Capitol Hill Thursday, calling the administration's reluctance to fully back Syrian rebels an “embarrassment.”

"Today's hearing left me bewildered that this government does not have a strategy as to Syria," Sen. Robert Menendez, D-New Jersey, said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."

Syria's chemical weapons post a threat to national security...

Apparantly, the fact that Americans are against the idea of getting involved in the Syrian civil war means nothing to Menendez.

Obama doesn't care about Syria. He doesn't care about the Middle East. He doesn't care about Israel. He doesn't care who likes him and he doesn't care who hates him. He only cares about one thing: takeover of the United States Government.

He's focused and he's determined. Few on the other side are so focused and determined.

They have no Syrian strategy, so what.

This admin doesn’t have a strategy for anything else. What’s the big deal?

To hell with Syria. He doesn’t have a strategy to stop the freeloader invasion of America!

Thought the killing of 400 children was a crisis a month or so ago.

Guess when you look at the 100,000 we kill each month with the mixer if the unborn child Syrians got nothing on us.

So true. Also, he doesn’t know that Putin OWNS Obama, that Israel isn’t going to let things threaten them and that the UN is in Syria and has dismantled the delivery systems and is in the process of getting rid of the chem weapons. ....The idiot Senator, Menendez, is another brain-dead legislator.

His timing is rather odd, as Syria just met a deadline to destroy chemical production facilities.

Ole' Bob was going to introduce the 4H clubs to the Dominican Republic but he never got beyond the letter 'F'.

Obama doesn't care if he screws up on these "peripheral" issues. He only does what he has to on these other issues in order to keep the ball rolling domestically. Contrast just about everything else with his determination to get Obamacare passed. As far as he was concerned, NOTHING was going to stop him or Obamacare from getting passed. On the other fronts, if he screws up or lets things slide, he knows if he waits long enough, the press will move on and so will the public. "No drama Obama" who stays focused on his Socialist agenda and goal.

Where are the laser-focused freedom lovers who, like Obama (and Reagan), will not be deterred by political expediency, the press, or public opinion polls? These are the ones who can overcome the Obama's of the world and lead our country back to freedom and wholeness.
