Even if that were true -- and today I'm not sure that it is -- it would be much less embarrassing than leading us (everyone!) into an illegal war. It is not about saving Obama's credibility. The American people are 2-1 against action in Syria. It would be most embarrassing if the oldest democracy on Earth ignored the will of it's people.
the US is not a democracy nor the oldest to use democratic representation.

Actually it would indicate the Russian president is backing down from their unqualified support of Syria because he realizes OUR President isn't bluffing.

More indication of the respect Obama commands in the world.

Putin beat Obama like a red-headed stepchild. Obama comes off weak, and like a simpleton before the whole world. He will huff, and puff for a couple days, declare victory, and go on to his next major failure. It will be like this until January, 2017.

Oblamer told Putin he would be more flexible in his second term.

This is exactly why the repugnantcans just cannot handle Obama as POTUS. Everything they hate the most about what he has done, said or decided during his presidency, has had nothing to do with Mr. Obama's concern for his credibility or being embarrassed. Compared to the problems he is solving, what people like this think about him is the least of his concerns, if of any concern at all.

unlike you, obama's smart enough to recognize a good plan (and a good out) when he sees one, and to go with it.

you don't know what you want, other than to mindlessly attack obama for whatever reason you can. you're a hater, not a thinker.

A good plan that Obama had nothing to do with. This whole episode is about the Russian President Putin, and the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov. They formulated the plan, took it to the UN Secretary General with no input from Obama or Hanoi John at all. It is as though the U S doesn't exist. And Obama is jumping for joy, because he had no idea what to do about this whole thing. Once he threatened the Syrians, and they called his bluff he was lost. We have become the laughing stock of the whole world.

Again, no one loves Putin, but you cannot pretend not to notice how he turned Obama everyway, but loose, and then took advantage of his incompetence, and made him look weak in front of the whole world.

You can't see that the Russian President made a fool of your President? Obama made a speech last night, and hardly anyone listened. It isn't just foreign leaders that are making Obama look bad, he couldn't make his case for his attack on Syria. He first wants an attack, for the Children, don'cha know. Then he doesn't want an attack because his new BFF, Putin wants to talk to Assad instead, and see if he can't solve Obama's diplomatic mess. Where are the half way intelligent Democrats that are supposed to reign in this pitiful man, President Obama when he does something stupid like draw a line in the sand!!!
