You people never pay attention to the details. Obama's proposed military action had nothing to do with overthrowing Assad. That is a Republican conspiracy.
Kerry's testimony in support of the resolution repeated that the Obama objective is regime change in Syria.

You and yours really have no common sense. McCain and Romney were disasters waiting to happen and YOUR choices for president. As I have said before, we should thank our lucky stars that they didn't get elected.

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- All U.S. states except for Delaware have escaped the possibility of falling back into recession, as they reap the rewards of strong private-sector employment and a burgeoning energy sector, according to an analysis released on Tuesday.
Moody's Analytics, which tracks state and metropolitan economies, added Illinois, Wisconsin and Alabama to its list of states in recovery. That left Delaware alone in its "at risk of recession" category.
Moody's Analytics, a unit of Moody's evaluates economics and financial risk around the world. A separate unit, the credit ratings agency Moody's Investors Service, recently said the outlook for states is now stable, after five years of being negative.
"The labor market recoveries in those three states were lagging behind," said Moody's Analytics Associate Economist Brent Campbell.
But over the last six months, private-sector jobs have grown in Alabama. Chicago, where the financial services sector is strong, is leading the Illinois economy into stable territory.

So you know O'bama gets up and yada yada yadas about Assad and then yada yada yadas about the children, and then yada yada yadas about some videos and the yada yada yadas about letters. Sure the O'bama looks like he doesn't know what is going on.
he's really got you wingnuts running in circles.

tomorrow Putin will say 'Let's bomb them!' and the conversion of American conservatives to communism will come to a screeching halt.

tomorrow Obama will say 'Let's not bomb them!' and you will suddenly find your neocon side that you had to suppress so you could keep hating on Obama.

big circles. hating is hard work eh?

I can't imagine anything worse than two million bikers driving down the street and disturbing everyone else's peace. Hopefully police will take this opportunity to cite bikers for modified mufflers, driving without eye protection, illegal handlebar height, lane splitting, and/or driving without a helmut. Their heart might be in the right place but their total disregard for the rights of everyone
shouldn't be applauded.
The District of Columbia chose Muslims over American patriots and deserves whatever they get.

One thing we know for a FACT, "there is a direct link betweem smoking and brain damage." And, I might add, smokers die an early death. You should probably start thinking about what you are going to put on your tombstone. A quote from your protest sign seems appropriate: Here lies a "petite, white, female (chain smoking) Hymie" who chose allegiance to Israel over her homeland.

Syria chemical attacks: What we know

Since the early hours of 21 August when graphic footage started to flood social media sites of an alleged chemical weapons attack on civilians living in the agricultural belt around Damascus, experts have been piecing together the evidence to try to establish what happened.

A report from the New York-based Human Rights Watch is the latest to blame Syrian government forces for carrying out the attacks, which left hundreds of people dead in the Ghouta area on the outskirts of Damascus.

Human Rights Watch says 330mm surface-to-surface rockets were used to attack Zamalka in Eastern Ghouta on 21 August. At least four strike sites have been found.
From remnants of the weapons, HRW has reconstructed the characteristics of the rocket, which, it says, was capable of carrying up to 60 litres of chemical nerve agent.
The payload of the rocket consisted of a large, thin-walled container. A small explosive charge at the front detonated on impact and ruptured the skin of the payload, dispersing the chemicals.

Initial reports and video footage of the attack emerged from social media sources, making the claims difficult to verify and causing many to reserve judgement on whether chemical weapons were actually used.

Despite this, chemical weapons experts said the large volume of visual evidence would be difficult to fake.

Three days after the attack, medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres confirmed that three hospitals it supports in Damascus had treated about 3,600 patients with "neurotoxic symptoms" on the day of the attack. They said 355 of these had died.

Medical experts said large numbers of patients displayed convulsions, pinpointed pupils, excessive saliva and difficulty in breathing - all tell-tale signs of nerve agent poisoning thought most likely to be sarin. They were treated with atropine and other known antidotes, which the medics said worked in many cases, despite the hospitals running out of treatments.

In truth, Obama had dug himself such a deep hole that the Putin move bought him a few days...until Putin reveals his true position.

Obama may still bomb Syria, without the approval of Congress, to save face.

LMAO. You are starting to get caught up in your lies. Guess you have forgotten all the whining and crying you did when they increased the cigarette tax. Take a deep breath sweetie. You're losing it.
You mean the cigarette tax that O'bama bestowed on the poor? after O'bama himself said he would not raise taxes? that tax? yes it pissed me off-because poor people who smoke cigarettes will be paying more instead of feeding their children. O'bama taxed the poor. That was the point. Don't call me sweetie, makes an old feminist bat like you sound queer.

Have you ever had a basic economics class?
The market crashed twice within a couple of weeks. The first crash was when it could not be ignored any longer that the interwoven investments were tied to worthless traunches comprised of failed CRA mortgages.
The second crash a couple of weeks later happened when the Democrat-controlled House refused to pass a bill to prop the failing banks up.
Both crashes happened in September, right after both conventions ended and the campaigning began.
It wasn't until after the election that the Democrats passed virtually the same bill they had rejected during the election campaign.
You really need to go get your money back from whatever institution pretended to educate you.
I'm not the one claiming everything was great until that date in September. That was you demonstrating how little you understand about economics.

I like your new pathetic excuse - it was the Democrat's fault for not stopping the Republican fueled economic mess.

What policy did the Democrats change in those first 10 moths? What could they change with never more than 50- Democrat Senators Cheney tie breaker) & Bush's veto?
