That's rich! Obama is a laugh-a-minute!

Putin steals his lunch money, our allies pin a "kick me" sign to his butt and Assad gives him a wedgie. Yet the poor stumblebum yells "Victory!".

Of course, as with Jerry Lewis, he's been proclaimed an "artist of the highest caliber" in France. You know you are really screwed when only the French have your back.

Baggett anyone? LOL!

But, But, But Mr. President, what does the arms have to do with all your speeches.

President Barack Obama addressed the crisis in Syria on Saturday, saying he has decided the United States should take military action against regime targets, but that he will seek authorization from Congress before taking action.

"I will seek authorization for the use of force from the American people's representatives in Congress," Obama said during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden.

Obama said any action would "be designed to be limited in duration and scope."

Obama referenced an Aug. 21 attack at the start of his remarks, saying "this menace must be confronted."

"The world watched in horror as men, women and children were massacred in Syria in the worst chemical attack of the 21st century," Obama said.

"This attack is an assault on human dignity," Obama said, saying it "risks making a mockery" of the use of chemical weapons.

"Make no mistake -- this has implications beyond chemical warfare," Obama said.

There were only two decent French in history. Marquis de Lafayette and Joan of Arc, and they turned her over to the enemy.

We have been down this road before with Saddam, UN Resolutions/sanctions and the occasional air strikes. Did it work then? NO Saddam had to be removed by force. Which removing Assad wasn't part of Obama's plan. Just like removing Saddam wasn't part of the plan either. Will this work now, we don't know but history in that region is a good indicator it won't. It WILL have to be backed up with force eventually. WHO IS GOING TO DO IT?? Obama can't get a coalition of two for this now. Does he think its popularity is grow with time? Will AQ get its hand on one of those weapons or has that already happened? So thank you Obama, you flinched and you have just given the US another Iraq and more problems in years to come. Kids were sent to Desert Storm, they sent their kids to OIF, now they will send their kids to Syria in the next decade!

You know they're rooting for military deaths, so they'll have another talking point. The others worked out so well.

Worship nobody, dearie, and it is ok to criticize our presidents (you pick one) but the comments about their wives, their children, their college transcripts, their clothes, their ears, their birth certificates, their sex lives, their parents, their uncles, their shoes and all the other minutiae you guys obsess and fantasize about seem ignorant, puerile and sometimes worst.

The pasty looking Bush clone in the White House still manufacturing evidence of WMDs in Syria as a pretext in order to justify his plans to attack Assad and help the pro Al Quieda terrorist rebels take over? I guess Obama did get elected promising "more of the same".
