While President Barack Obama said on Saturday he would ask Congress to sign off on a strike against the Syrian government, Republican lawmakers had mixed reactions to the plan, with House Homeland Security Committee chair Rep. Peter King (R-NY) accusing Obama of sidestepping his duties as commander-in-chief.
“He should not be passing it on to Congress,” King told WCBS-TV on Saturday.“I should not be waiting until Congress comes back on September 9th.”
But Talking Points Memo reported that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and other Republican leaders argued just the opposite in a joint statement announcing the House would take the matter up for a vote after coming back from recess.
“Under the Constitution, the responsibility to declare war lies with Congress,” the statement read.“We are glad the president is seeking authorization for any military action in Syria in response to serious, substantive questions being raised.”

The Syrian solution is now in the hands of the House Republicans that criticize Obama regardless of which way he goes. This should be interesting.
