Why? He asked Congress for approval; which is what you rightwingers whined about; why? Because you thought the right was against Syrian intervention.
I am against striking Syria; I disagree with the President on this one; why are the Republicans in favor of it? Is this the only issue that the Republicans can be in favor of? War? Not healthcare, not jobs?
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON —
House Speaker John Boehner (BAY'-nur) says he will support President Barack Obama's call for the U.S. to take action against Syria for alleged chemical weapons use and says his Republican colleagues should support the president, too.
The Ohio Republican says the use of chemical weapons must be responded to. He says only the United States has the capability and the capacity to stop Syrian President Bashar Assad and warn others around the world that such actions will not be tolerated.
Said Boehner: "This is something that the United States as a country needs to do."
He spoke at the White House Tuesday after he and other congressional leaders met with Obama
Maybe Boehner is doing some super-jujitsu where he gets people to think "Hey, Obama is just as bad as Boehner!"?

Syria is a worse shthole than Libya, my own preference would be to pull back and let all those crazy mofo's kill each other off. There's nothing there__oil makes up a quarter of the GDP and then agriculture in the absence of drought, olives and such. Beyond that there's squat.

I vote no on bombing Syria so Obama doesn't have to admit his "red line" comments were the ramblings of a moron who is in over his head.

I agree; but we went to war for oil in Iraq and it went to the Chinese and they didn't have to use one bullet or lose one life or kill anyone to get it. They should pay the US a finders fee at least.

Republicans Offer Syria Strategy:“We Must Defund Obamacare”

Posted by Andy Borowitz

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—As the debate over Syria moves to the United States Congress, a leading Senate Republican said today that the only way to resolve the crisis in the war-torn Middle Eastern country is by “defunding Obamacare at once.”

Appearing on the Fox News Channel, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told host Sean Hannity,“If we’re trying to send a strong message to [Syrian President] Bashar al-Assad, I can think of no better way to do that than by defunding Obamacare.”

Elaborating on his strategy, Sen. Cruz added,“By defunding Obamacare, we would basically be saying to Assad,‘This is how we attack our own President, so just imagine what we’ll do to you.’ That would make him think twice before he pulls another one of his stunts.”

“You can fire off as many Tomahawk missiles as you want,” said Sen. Cruz.“But they won’t have the same impact on Syria as defunding Obamacare.”

Shortly after his appearance, Sen. Cruz’s statements drew a sharp rebuke from a fellow Republican, Arizona Senator John McCain, who called the prospect of bombing Syria “the only thing I have to live for.”

“Look, I’ve been in a very dark place since the 2008 election,” Sen. McCain told reporters.“There have been a lot of mornings when, quite frankly, I haven’t had a reason to get out of bed. It’s all well and good for people like Ted Cruz to criticize Tomahawk missiles, but hitting Syria is all that’s keeping me going.”
