Obama didn't "mishandle" anything. He worked as a member of the United Nations which is exactly what he should be doing. I understand his frustration with the inability of the Security Council to take appropriate action but he certainly followed proper procedures.
One thing is for certain, if we take action against Syria without the approval of the United Nations, Israel can be assured that the United States will no longer be in a position to save their azz through the use of our Security Council veto power. Israel's half century of occupying parts of Palestine in breach of UN resolutions will come to an end. That would be a good thing.
You seem to be of the mind that the U.N. is the world government. I got news for you they are not. They are a useless waste of money (mostly ours) and the US needs to get out and throw them out of New York at the same time.

World leaders have different PRIORITIES!

Tonight while Putin is grilling Snowden for more intimate NSA secrets, Obama will be getting more intimate with Russian poofs at a secret down low in St. Petersburg.

You lost your argument with "sociopath". What are you even talking about? Romney would have put people back to work. You can't care more about the middle class than that.
Progressive liberalism is poisoning any common sense we have left and weakening the very foundation on which most of us once stood.
Give me a leader who happens to be a Mormon any day.
I didn't lose anything you clueless twit. Mitt Romney does have sociopathic traits. He's outwardly charming but has no empathy as evidenced by his interaction with the guy in the wheelchair in New Hampshire.

He lies like a rug. He claimed that Chrysler was shipping Jeep production to China when in fact it was expanding production for that model right here in the US. He claimed that Obama "gutted the work requirement for welfare when in fact he was giving waivers to states to come up with better plans to get recipients to work. Something Romney himself had requested as Governor of Massachusetts. Even Republican Governor Sam Brownback called that a lie. He claimed that Obamacare would get between patients and their doctors when there's nothing in the ACA that would do any such thing.
How do you know he'd be putting people back to work? Do you have some portal into an alternate universe where Romney won? We should have more people working but the onus is on the GOP controlled House which has refused to even consider any legislation put forth by the President that would have done that. Romney's record in the private sector shows him to be more of a job destroyer tan a job creator.
You seem to keep forgetting that he had his shot in an executive position as Governor of Massachusetts and when he left office he had a 34% approval rating and the citizens of that state again soundly rejected him in the 2012 election by a 23% margin.
Contrary to your asinine statement, historically the middle class has always done better under progressive policies and foundered under the right wing.

Dream home in Detroit? Yes, if one considers nightmares as dreams.

A lot of Detroit homeowners with insurance pray that their home gets selected for the annual Hell Night

Australian billionaire: Rupert Murdoch discovered wife Wendi Deng was a Chinese spy so he ‘got rid of her’

She’s been spying on Rupert for years, giving money back to Chinese intelligence. She was trained in southern China. I’m telling you the truth,” Palmer said.

“Wendi Deng is a Chinese spy and that’s why Rupert got rid of her.”

He continued:“And this guy (Murdoch) wants to control Australian politics. He wants to control what you think.”

Good grief, FYI
"
The Swedish Army trains land combat and air defence units which, in concert with Air Force and naval units, can be deployed operationally on both national and international missions.
The Army’s land forces are being reoriented towards an increasingly clear rapid-response, mission-oriented role which includes participation in international operations."
http://www.forsvarsmakten.se/en/Organisation/...
In the Oval Office in December 2002, the president met with a few ranking senators and members of the House, both Republicans and Democrats. In those days, there were high hopes that the United States-sponsored ''road map'' for the Israelis and Palestinians would be a pathway to peace, and the discussion that wintry day was, in part, about countries providing peacekeeping forces in the region. The problem, everyone agreed, was that a number of European countries, like France and Germany, had armies that were not trusted by either the Israelis or Palestinians. One congressman -- the Hungarian-born Tom Lantos, a Democrat from California and the only Holocaust survivor in Congress -- mentioned that the Scandinavian countries were viewed more positively. Lantos went on to describe for the president how the Swedish Army might be an ideal candidate to anchor a small peacekeeping force on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Sweden has a well-trained force of about 25,000. The president looked at him appraisingly, several people in the room recall.

''I don't know why you're talking about Sweden,'' Bush said.''They're the neutral one. They don't have an army.''

Lantos paused, a little shocked, and offered a gentlemanly reply:''Mr. President, you may have thought that I said Switzerland. They're the ones that are historically neutral, without an army.'' Then Lantos mentioned, in a gracious aside, that the Swiss do have a tough national guard to protect the country in the event of invasion.

Bush held to his view.''No, no, it's Sweden that has no army.''

The room went silent, until someone changed the subject.

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/10/17/magazine/17...

''No, no, it's Sweden that has no army.'', that Sweden?

you guys actually voted for that idiot? what were you thinking?

Oh, how I long for the days when liberals wailed that "the rest of the world" hated America, rather than now, when the rest of the world laughs at us.

But I guess that's what happens when a "Community Organizer Goes to War."

With the vast majority of Americans opposing a strike against Syria, President The-Buck-NEVER-Stops-Here-Obam a has requested that Congress vote on his powers as commander in chief under the Constitution. The president doesn't need congressional approval to shoot a few missiles into Syria, nor -- amazingly -- has he said he'll abide by such a vote, anyway.

Why is Congress even having a vote? This is nothing but a fig leaf to cover Obama's own idiotic "red line" ultimatum to President Bashar al-Assad of Syria on chemical weapons. The Nobel Peace Prize winner needs to get Congress on the record so that whatever happens, the media can blame Republicans.

No Republican who thinks seriously about America's national security interests -- by which I mean to exclude John McCain and Lindsey Graham -- can support Obama's "plan" to shoot blindly into this hornet's nest.

It would be completely different if we knew with absolute certainty that Assad was responsible for chemical attacks on his own people.

I'm still waiting to see if it was a Syrian upset about a YouTube video.
