Obama: Even Michelle's answer on war 'is no' By Mario Trujillo - 09/09/13 07:01 PM ET
President Obama acknowledged Monday that even his wife, Michelle, is skeptical of having the U.S. become embroiled in another overseas military conflict.
Obama, in a number of television interviews taped Monday, used his wife to drive home the point that he understands most Americans remain skeptical of his proposal for a limited strike in Syria.
If you ask somebody, if you ask Michelle, Do we do we ant to be involved in another war? The answer is no, Obama told NBC. People are wary about it, understandably.
The administration has consistently made the point that any action would be limited in scope, and it has denied that it would constitute a war.
In a separate interview with CBS, Obama said he didn't expect his address to the nation on Tuesday would "swing the polls" toward support for strikes.
"I don't expect that it's going to suddenly swing the polls wildly in the direction of another military engagement. If you ask the average person, including my household, 'Do we need another military engagement?' I think the answer generally is going be no," he said.
Obama faces an uphill battle in convincing the public of his plan to use military force in Syria after the administration concluded that President Bashar Assad used chemical weapons against his own people late last month.
Approval of a resolution remains uncertain in both chambers of Congress. According to The Hills whip count, the Senate is heading toward a tight vote while public opposition in the House has gained increased traction.
Nearly half a dozen polls released Monday show public opposition to a strike has actually increased since last week as the administration has made the case for a strike.
What does Amy Carter say?
Is he hiding behind or inside a skirt?
All this for a war?
Chew-bacca has belched her opposition so that should settle it once and for all. Now back to your brussel sprouts berry.
On weaselzippers.net, someone compared this to blaming the dog for farting. Heh.
Well glad that global catastrophe was avoided. Thanks Big Wookie!
So it’s confirmed; she is smarter than he is.
And what did the girls say?? And what about the doggies??
Has Mr. Obama’s mother-in-law been polled?
As a member of the Great Unwashed, I concede that whatever Moochelle says must be the Gospel, gleaned directly from God’s mouth to her ear. /sarc
So now the opinions of a fat a$$ed food Nazi with no class (remember the “damn flag”?) count as serious foreign policy musings?
Um, ‘scuse me, but she doesn’t get a vote.
The Mooch just doesn’t want to take any chance that he could be impeached for doing it anyway. She’s just thinking about her lap of luxury coming to an abrupt halt. That’s all.
No worries for her. They are set regardless if he gets impeached or not. They only thing that’ll cramp their style would be some well deserved vacation time at Ft. Leavenworth. Which isn’t very likely. At least king hussein could share a cell with the asshat who committed “work place violence” at Ft. Hood.
I am absolutely blown away at how unprofessionally this President speaks.
