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

Sep 1, 2013 Full story: Politico 422

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.

The good news, cattie boy, is we will soon find out what our elected officials and Congress decide on - and that will be a good thing.

You might like what Obama wants to do, but neither you or the President will like what Congress has to say when they take the final vote.

Maybe it is because the President is on the wrong side. It was the AlQaeda in the Rebel military that gassed those people, and now Obama wants to reward them with Air cover. Get your facts straight. The Democrats are lying to you. Again. Still.
at least you admit you're anti-american and pro-terrorist

Whatever Congress has to say will be important and the final vote will be important.

How important will the final vote be if Congress tells President Obama No? He will still do what he pleases, because he believes he is some kind of King. He won't rule over the land ubtil 40 months from now, and just as Bush was blamed in 2008, and 2012, the Obama people will take the fall in 2016

if he has the "power to attack" (what is he, a transformer?), he should already have attacked. if congress gives him permission and he attacks, it's still warmongering and aggression, and very foolish.

and if he attacks after going to congress and getting turned down, he should be impeached.

If Congress says no, and Obama attacks anyway he will be impeached. Even the Democrats have already agreed to that conclusion.

I think Congress should give Obama what he wants.

Since they love to sneak shit into every bill, pass an authorization to use force with the repeal of Obamacare included.

Let's see how committed Obama and the Democrats are then to this "humanitarian" mission.

Yes the description "the warmongering chicken hawk" amply describes McCain, who some of you voted for and - rightly - lost his presidential bid.
