Obama must be terribly stressed at the moment, honestly he's been pretty good with this so far. Juan McCain would have bombed Syria to death a long time ago. He's sitting on the fence. He's already going to be on Mt. Rushmore in the Weimar, but he could actually make a difference if he talked about his family instead of Trayvon. Tell A. Bynes and Silly Cyrus that they need to knock it off and that they are out of control. Other whoes would hopefully listen. No one is listening to Bill or the Bush boys. People would listen to Obongo, but all he ever does is race-bait. He needs to tell the 'groids to knock-off the black on white attacks, but he never will.
President Obama could have started the closure process on many of our racial problems. Instead the progressive agenda is followed until it can't be. His buddy Rahm with all his bluster has problems in Chi town and somehow is not quite as progressive now. Plenty of other progressive politicians have done the same thing because if they go to far, cities die completely. He still has three years left. Maybe he will open his eyes and become president of all the people, instead of agenda driven. Maybe he will back off the wars for someone else.

Where's all the liberal outrage? Congress has not approved? Chemical weapons were used in Iraq and liberals did not care.

Right. Republicans go to war if it means that someone
else does the fighting and dying.

Dick Cheney: I had "other priorities."

No, Ann, going on a Mormon mission in Paris
is not the equivalent of fighting the Taliban
in Afghanistan.

Saddam actually did use chemical weapons on the Kurds.

This thing in Syria is made up bullshit.

Over 100,000 people have been killed in Syria over the last couple of years.

But all of the sudden 100 people are "supposedly" killed in a chemical attack, and we have to invade?

It's all a lie.

I'm not buying into the need for U.S. to enter this conflict, seems we've been down this road before and things never turn out right.

The French, British, Isreal can deal with it. Let them share in the worlds hate towards us.

Between the Arab Spring, Kaddafi and the killing of Osama bin Laden… this is exactly why we elected and trust this President. These are complicated issues; and President Obama is a brilliant former Harvard Law professor who graduated Harvard with High Honors and that is the king of smarts and intelligence that we want in the Oval Office.

Cruise missiles are like .44 ammo.
Not much fun unless you get to crank out a few rounds every now and then.
BUT
One should be careful of whose friends you're going to piss off when you do pop off some ordinance....
This seems like a VERY bad idea.
