Oh no… the tea-baggers aren’t going to like this one bit. They do not want anyone, (especially someone on their side) to support the Black guy on anything. President Obama will strike Syria with or without congressional approval… it is just great to see the tea-baggers fight with themselves because on one hand they love to send other peoples sons and daughters to war, they love blood and bombs and they love to see dead foreigners in the streets… but they hate their country and the Black President so they are conflicted with which is worst – not killing people or supporting the Black guy. Their deep seeded racist beliefs might prevail on this one.

Obama's neo-colonialism extends beyond his policies to deprive 1.6 Billion people on Earth of energy and a longer life expectancy. His control-freak mentality extends beyond promoting and funding the killing of more babies in the US. Even though previous UN investigations and overviews of top UN judges have established that those Obama arms and funds to cut off heads in Syria are actually the ones using Sarin, like his energy policies, he is able to threaten Congress, telling them basically he will support the terrorists no matter what Congress wants. Why any sane person would want to allow such maniacal desires to reverse the gains of our War on Terror is beyond reason. Maybe they too are monsters wanting to kill off a third of the world population and keep them in dung huts until they do.

Obama dropped the ball in Syria just as a book on Benghazi hits the shelves.
This mentally ill president doesn't know when to keep his stupid red lining mouth shut.

The GOPasaurs had no choice. Once again they got outmaneuvered by the President.

The warmongering Republicans have been banging the drums of war for the past 2 years, and now that Obama agreed to a military strike, they suddenly changed their position 180 degrees.

Typical of the Anti-Obama GOPasaurs.

One side had a small opening for freedom and it was closed. It is not being powerless against progressives as Repub voters are fighting the traitors in their own party tha tkeep being thrusted to them. You don't care because you adore progressive politics. And we are in decline because of it.
very well said...
but, the liberal progressives STILL have to have someone to point their finger at and blame...their ideology is totally impotent without a boogeyman...

This is a bell-weather vote.

It is going to have many Republicans and many Democrats in both camps. Of course, the decision is very easy-----Assad and Hezbolla versus the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. Stay out of the fight.

Hard as it may be for you to believe, there are people in this country that believe a weak president is bad for the country and as such, need to support him -- even when he makes boneheaded "red line" statements.

>>Tuesday’s show was devoted in large part to whether Congress should endorse President Obama’s request for a new Authorization for the Use of Military Force (“AUMF”), a Congressional action sought and received by President Bush just prior to launching the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001....

Call this AUMF 2.0 and count me as a supporter for reasons I have discussed here and elsewhere... Some, like my guest tonight, Victor Davis Hanson, have worries about the “second order impacts” with such a weak president at the helm. To be sure, the “SMAERLs”–”the social media amplified extremists of right and left”– are flooding every zone with their far right or left views, but there are some legitimate arguments against voting for the feckless president’s latest zig-zag, and VDH made them tonight....

My own view is that the damage to American credibility from an American president not following through on a “red line” threat is so immense as to overcome those objections and the lead article in the new Foreign Affairs magazine on the Supreme Leader of Iran, the Ayatollah Khamenei... reinforces my worries over the emboldening of our already deadly enemies via a collapse of the last shred of this president’s credibility....

The president has put the country in a deep hole. The GOP has to rescue him and by doing so save itself from its small but very loud isolationist wing and at the same time help address the concerns of serious critics of the weakest modern president like VDH and Ambassador John Bolton....

The Party of Reagan ha to act like the Party of Reagan and promote the national defense and protect the national interest even when the president won’t.

Your race baiting Critical Race Theory is tiresome, but it must really piss you off that 'so white he's translucent' Hugh Hewitt wants to save the President and the country from Obama's own words.

Of course they support it. People need to realize this, the people that support it and are so eager to get involved are not the ones fighting it.

Thank about that for a minute.

Will Obama, Cantor, Bonehead, Pelosi, McLame, or Patty Cakes Pat here be the ones that actually have to go fight it?

Nope, so since they are not in danger, they support it.

Only a phony marine would gloat over this. Supposing any military action on Syria is an act of insanity The united states has no dog in this fight More of you yo's get wasted by gang warfare than the number killed by this supposed gas attack.

If you were a real Marine you would see the insanity going on here

No surprises there that Boehnor and Cantor support more war spending---the GOP TEA Birthers show their true colors. It's funny though seeing the GOP TEA Birthers here call President Obama for not attacking Syria earlier....and now that he intends to....they still call him a coward. Is it no wonder that the GOP TEA Birther is losing relevance? They don't know what they want.
