You Democrappers complain 24-7 how Bush got us in two wars, but now Obama has to get us in a few too. Bush was feared and hated, obama is just laughed at.

He's only seeking Congessional approval because he's afraid of making decision on his own. This way, he gets to blame Congress.
He has been told that congress also drew a line in the sand and Valerie Jarrent his handler told him to fold in his cards. He couldn't bluff with two's. Impeachment would be next.

That would be quite a change of tactic for the Congress to say yes to anything!

Good move to get Congress to vote - looking forward to it.

Yes a pivotal moment for Congress ...

... "He added that this is also a pivotal moment for members of Congress who have a long history of carping about foreign policy on the sidelines without taking a clear stand."

If this was of urgent importance why doesn't Obama just call Congress back in Session? It was so important to Obama he went golfing. Congress won't even come back from vacation early. Yet next week, for no reason apparent to the people in the United States, these old men, many who are known cowards like Hanoi John, will vote to send our young into harm's way possibly to die because they will be exposed to chemical warfare. All to help rebels made up of 50% AlQaeda fighters. This doesn't make any sense. Any Republican that signs onto this idiocy must be replaced in the next election. The American people are the Government, we should not be a party to this.

Congress?...... What a joke. They are more loyal to Israel and its policies then they are to the U S. This is one of the underlying considerations being put forward by the Administration. The need to protect Israel from Syria, Israel and Hezbollah, and Oh yea.... a few other countries . Obama knows how deep The Congress is to American Zionists and that they will go to no ends to placate them. So America get ready to go to war for Israeli interests again. The gassing is as good of a reason to use as any, although we have been lied into wars many times before.

McCain is unsure because the C in C has no viable plan. You cannot follow a man child into war. We need grown ups to make the decisions now. You also never go into war with a plan to lose the battle. Obama has no idea what he is doing. That is a bad decision right from the beginning. Even Uncle Joe would be better at making this decision then a man whose loyalties lie with AlQaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood.

You stupid people always get caught.I hope Congress calls your bluff,and says yes. Then your'e up a creek!!!

I know your President is totally incompetent, and will never be able to make a competent decision on his own. He is like a child who had no guidance, and therefore cannot make adult decisions. He is already lying about the limited use of force, and has no sense of direction. Senator Leahy has already said the senate will rewrite his War Resolution, because it makes no sense. So tell me some more about Obama's readiness to be President. The Supreme Court had to rewrite his healthcare Act. Where government is concerned Obama is as useless as tits on a boar!!

Tony you are loosing it, cussing up a storm for what? a community organizer who uses the race card anytime it benefits him and his agenda, making stupid comments when off his telepromter. He is a divider not a reuniter. Instead of focusing on the economy and American jobs he pushes Obamacare, gay rights and immigration, how messed up is that, I would think high unemployment for a record number of months would give him a clue.
