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.

If you keep focusing on Bush, you will never solve the problems created by Obama. It doesn't matter what Obama says, it's a lie.

Wow. Obama wants to go to war all of the sudden, just like Clinton did in Kosovo. I didn't even know Obama had been getting bj's from a White House intern!

Think Obama had second thoughts and now wants Congressional support in case the "shot over the bow" goes wrong. So instead of one patsy we can blame each and every politician if this attack fails. I certainly will be checking those I vote for and if they vote to give Obama power, they will not get my vote.

Just when the tea-baggers are screaming about President Obama acting like a dictator and saying that he needs to go to congress… and that was after them screaming about him needing to attack Syria because of chemical weapons…
President Obama has brilliantly shown the world how a Democracy works and how his strong leadership skills places him in positions to maneuver as necessary… Osama bin Laden is all you have to say to destroy any talk about Obama on National Security. Obama got Osama, and the worst terrorist attack in this nation’s history happened while a republican was in Office.
The Congress has the ball in their court… and they know that Obama has brilliantly bowed them in once again, LOL!
Let me guess: NOW there are WMDs?(With made in Iraq stamped on them)
Maybe O'Bama is after Syria's oil? Yeah, that's the ticket!
We need to stay OUT of Syria and stop supporting Al Queada!! Let the prez go back to community organizing and leave us out of the job of the World's police force.
You leftist hypocrits! It wasn't good enough to attack Iraq for humanity's sake so let it be so now for Syria, right?

What did you expect from RINOs? They probably taught O'Bama how to capitalize on the war machine like all the other folks in DC.
O'Bama was against wars before he was for them. Hahahahaa

That is why this vote is important and I appreciate President Obama going to Congress so those folks can be counted.

Gotta give you your blood sucking venom so you can demonize the ones you hate depending on what side of the fence this issue falls on. Never mind the issue, it is the agenda.

Since he has the power to attack he also has the power to start a global war which could become nuclear! Hopefully his administration can act rational for once! The us has no business in syria!
