Bipartisan is in demand with republicans. This Syria issue will illuminate even further the rift fraction amongst the republicans. The chasm widens.
Well its good to know that Tea is going off the menu. Red Herring delicacies of the republicans will remain. Boehner, Lindsey and McCain on board are but a few examples of the divide.
On July 16th 2013 Tea favorite Senator McConnell of Kentucky, senate minority leaders was admonished by the core conservative republican party. McConnell’s offer to Obama of having only 7 of his nominations, will be allowed an up and down vote.
Senator Harry Reid frustrated with these obstreperous hindering tactics, which have only achieved to having the least productive House senate in history. Harry put forth the measure that they would hold the republicans accountable to the abuses to the filibuster rules as set in 2005. Citing the “Extraordinary Circumstances” passage. This will be the bulwark of his accusations to remove all filibuster rights from the republicans.
Senators John McCain, Arizona {R} Senator Lindsey Graham, South Carolina {R} and Senator Ayotte New Hampshire formed an alliance to organize action against such extremist agenda’s of Senators McConnell, their senate minority Tea republican leader.
They delivered a proposal, bypassing Senator McConnell’s naive attempts at leadership, to Senator Harry Reid that assured all of the Obama nominees will be confirmed except for two. Senator Harry Reid easily changed those two and all was acceptable by both parties. Passing with a 66 yays to 34 nays.
Senator Harry Reid now declines to pursue the actions that would have held the republicans accountable to corruptive exploitation of the filibuster rule of 2005.
Senator Lindsey Graham was quoted as saying,“ That’s no reason to deny someone their appointment. We were Wrong!” He was referring to the unreasonable holding up of the nomination of Mr. Corday to the Consumer Protective Agency that was constructed by Senator Elizabeth Warren, back in 2010, under the Obama’s administration. An agency that is to hold the executives’ of Wall Street and Bankers accountable for their investments after the 2008 debacle.
Traditionalist Conservative are now distancing themselves from their insidious extremist elements within their party. This is but one example of this ever increasing rift / chasm that is now fracturing through out the nation.

Obama doesn't have to ask Congress to bomb Syria. But should he?

There is ample precedent in recent history -- and with precedent, the more recent, the more authoritative -- to support the view that the president does not need a joint resolution of Congress, much less a declaration of war, in order to initiate hostilities on a valid constitutional basis. The rescue of the Mayaguez (Ford), the Iran hostage rescue attempt (Carter), the invasion of Grenada (Reagan), the intervention in Lebanon (Reagan), the invasion of Panama (Bush), the air attacks on Serbia (Clinton), and the cruise missile attacks on Afghanistan and Sudan (Clinton) are all recent examples.

Beyond the presidential case law, the history and text of the Constitution support the president's authority to take unilateral military action, though that may come as a surprise to many people

Many here have a short site of vision which is obscuring what lays ahead, if this chemical attack goes without reprimand.
Allowing Syria to ignore their obligations to humanity by using, prohibited lethal chemical weaponry, without reprimand, will send a negative message. Perforation of chemical aggression would be entertained by less than scrupulous organizations will arise and increase. A limited demonstration to suppress the use of chemical weapons is required.
Obama has demonstrated his ethical responsibilities in answering to conflicting issues of violence by corrupted organizations. Some accuse Obama of some tyrannical conspiracy and yet the facts do not support their accusations.
Yes I see a pattern; Is it conspiracy?
Capture of Osama without archaic torture tactics.{Mathematical algorithms} No invasion of Pakistan with hundreds of $Billions for the military industrialist.
Libya’s war, without one American solider dying in its entire operation and objective. Completed within months.
Obtains a water downed Health Care system for our nation in spite of the most dysfunctional congress in our nations history.
Returned economic stability in record time, from the brink of the abysses of a Great Depression. Faster economic recovery, than Clinton, Reagan and F.D.R.
Seeking to expand our ruined higher education of which we are no longer the “best in the world”.
I have a dream that some day our nation will discover the benefits of Universal Education. Some Western Industrious Nations have, for years, proven its necessity and its benefits generating returns to their industrious nation for increase progress.

Matt Drudge:‘Why Would Anyone Vote Republican?’

Matt Drudge, the online news aggregator whose eponymous website is a favorite among conservatives, appeared disenchanted with the Republican Party on Tuesday.

In a pair of tweets, Drudge expressed his opposition to U.S. military action in Syria while arguing that the GOP has failed to give voters a compelling reason to support its candidates.

'Why would anyone vote Republican? Please give reason. Raised taxes; marching us off to war again; approved more NSA snooping. WHO ARE THEY?!'

Well, something works because over 100,000 have been killed. It's a quagmire that we should stay out of. Let Assad kill the AlQuaeda; who cares? Send humanitarian aid to Turkey and Lebanon for the refugees. Ever hear Assad being interviewed? He's not a dumb man.
Meanwhile, the Saudis have pledged to fill the financial void made by the absence of US aide. Good news. Let the Arab League pony up and take care of their own for a change.
Syria was a French colony until about 67 years ago and it's been a fkn shthole ever since the French left. The Ba'ath Party was born in Syria and it's all that has kept the Assad klan in power. The Ba'ath Party, like the Muslim Brotherhood and DB's beloved Wahabbists were all attempts at redefining Islam an already beyond fkd up religion.

Think about how Christianity was, cough, tweaked after it hit the New World. Same sht except US Christians have only taken up arms against one offshoot__that being the Mormons who were slaughtered.

It's hard to believe that any nation would befriend Syria__Russia for olives and oil (snicker) and Iran for the Shiite thingy maybe, but Iranians are Purrrrsians not lowly Arabs__and on and on it goes__doo dah doo dah.
