Because without the proper votes Obama isn't allowed to force us into FEMA death camps to have gay abortions.

What the President wants to do is an offensive, not defensive, action. It amounts to declaring war on another country for what he judges to be a violation of international law.

No that anyone pays attention to the US Constitution anymore but Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the United States Constitution says:
"To declare war, grant letters of marque and reprisal, and make rules concerning captures on land and water;"

What we are seeing now is nothing more than a political game though. The President said that the use of chemical weapons was a red line that if crossed would result in US action against those who used them. The idea America becoming involved militarily in another conflict in the middle east is not looked on favorably by many if not most people todays. By going to congress for permission the President wins either way. If he gets permission then he gets what he wants despite what the world at large thinks. If he doesn't he can blame Republicans and say they don't care about international law or more emotionally, the hundreds of men, women and children(watch for special emphasis on the children) killed in the chemical weapon attacks.

The US does not have the backing of the world in this. If the President had mustered support from our traditional allies and from the UN he would have bypassed congress and the reprisals would have already taken place.
