Kerry: Obama 'knows he has the power' to attack

There are 422 comments on the Politico story from Sep 1, 2013, titled Kerry: Obama 'knows he has the power' to attack. In it, Politico reports that:

Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday said if the Assad regime in Syria "were to be foolish enough to attack yet again and to do something in the meantime," President Barack Obama "knows he has the power" to attack unilaterally and would likely "move very, very rapidly" - but "he feels we are stronger" moving with congressional authorization.

Really? Like the cons who voted to keep domestic spying?
or a pansy democrat controlled congress and president too busy pusing the "Affordable" "Care" Act (and it is an act!) rather than overturning the Patriot Act, using drones in the US, NSA snooping, IRS violating rights. You mean like that?

You mean like the Black Pathers intimidating voters and the DOJ turns a blind eye? Or maybe you mean the Ohio election official that was a democrat that bragged about voting several times to make sure Obama stays in office? Like that? Or how you pushed for Motor Voter law so minorities could register to vote at DMVs and now refuse to show the same ID issued at the polls claiming it's descriminatory but demand immigration papers and proper ID to sign up for the "Affordable" "Care" Act? Like that? OH yeah, it's in the Democrat passed law.

And yet there is silence from the mouth of "progressives" when it comes to the legalization and regulation of prostitution for fear a woman is not allowed to control her own body? Or, how you hate the idea of safety regulations at abortion clinics to protect a woman from unsafe medical practice? You mean like that?

Like the cons who can't create 1 job?
You mean like a president that has created record welfare recipients, record duration of excessive unemployment, record numbers at and below the poverty line? Skews unemployment numbers and claims computer problems for the oops in real unemployment? Or like how minorities are at a record 28% unemployment under messiah? Or how messiah's bailouts only funded his cronies and bankrupt "green" energy companies? Like that?

You mean like when messiah said "The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.

As Commander-in-Chief, the President does have a duty to protect and defend the United States. In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent. History has shown us time and again, however, that military action is most successful when it is authorized and supported by the Legislative branch. It is always preferable to have the informed consent of Congress prior to any military action." in 2007 aimed at President Bush? Like that? It's OK now but not back then? Putin made the community organizer look like the uninformed clown he is and you still worship him.
Conservatives will always get the last laugh.

Government can't create jobs? Well, let's get those con tax cuts for business off the table. They've had since flubs was appointed to work....and they haven't.

Are you that stupid? Government can NOT create even a single job in the private sector, that is the business of business. Government can help create an economic situation that would be beneficial to the growth of private jobs, however, again they can NOT create a job in the private sector.
As for Obama Care and what it has done, it is directly responsible for both IBM and UPS and their change of heart about having company health care for spouses and retired people above the age of 65. I would hope that you can read so you can look the two companies up yourself and see the health care changes.
Ever since Obama care was passed many local businesses that had health care for their employees have dropped it and they are getting outside consultants in order to help the employees find personal health care at the lowest price possible. Obama care has only helped two groups, the 18 to 25 year olds who are in school and or still living at home, ask any doctor or pharmacist about the very, very small number of people that age that use the medical system. The other group it helps is the social dependents as it becomes somewhat of an extention of the Medicade Program.
I have lived the results of Obama care as up until last November I paid 1,700 dollars a month to insure two relatively healthy sexagenarians and now that I am on Medicare the cost for my wife to have insurance is almost 800 dollars per month with a very large deductible.
You live with the results of being screwed by your insurance company. Find a better deal:

Typical cowardly punk, when unable to respond to facts all he has is jokes.
Charles Krauthammer told viewers Monday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that President Obama should have waited until Tuesday to give his speech on the fifth anniversary of the financial meltdown -- instead of during an ongoing shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C.
“The president in that speech was back to hyper-partisan mode. Slashing attack on Republicans, at one point, he's speaking of the Republicans, he said, and some of them are decent, which is quite a remarkable thing for a president to say if you expect cooperation.

The Great Depression started in 1929, but as late as 1933 Newspapers, and Democrats were proclaiming "Era of Fear is Declared at an end.." much like Obama is doing today as he brags about his new economy. After Carter's disastrous one, and only term it only took President Reagan 18 months to pull is out of our financial doldrums. We are into President Obama's 5th year as President, and there is still no light at the end of the tunnel. Makes you wonder how in God's name this guy ever got reelected.

You can't be that stupid. Obama didn't eliminate anything. Most all of Assad's WMDs are going back to Iraq where they came from. Assad will show Kerry a few to keep him in the dark as to what is really happening, and ship the rest out. Kerry will jump up, and down like a monkey on a string and all will be happy. Where do they get these pitifully dumb people.
