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

There are 20 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.

Kerry the liar about his military service in Vietnam and Obama the liar about everything. As the song goes ... ebony and ivory, two greater liars can we see.

Obama shot his mouth off about them crossing the line, so he has to attack to save fACE-BUT HE'S SCARED. He's gonna let Congress make the decision-so if they say no-he can blame them and he doesnt look like such a coward.

Interesting that the congress have been screeching about their approval (or not) and now they have been asked, they know they will have to decide one way or another.

They will all come back refreshed, relaxed, golfed out and ready to state their votes.

Interesting, n'est-ce pas!

Interesting Obama can't make a decision on his own. But Syria already expects for the U.S. to chicken out. Kerry said Obama doesn't need their approval, and Obama has never used it in the past-so why now? Its only because he's a Wimp!

Obama got Osama!

It just gets better every day…

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!

You are right. Its a beautiful thing. Hiding the craziness is harder now. it looks good to you because the payments are still going out. But it has been reduced slightly even with massive tax increases and printing of trillions of fiat dollars. It will continue that way.

To bad Obama's blame game, has finally backfired. Syria already knows that Obama was trying to talk tough but can't back it up. Now he wants Congressional approval and Syria knows why-cause he can't take responsibility and has to blame someone. Its to funny, the World is laughing.

Obama used Bush's policies and information from Gitmo to find bin laden, phoney boy. You've been proven that many times.

Obama has gone to congress because even top democrats threatend him with impeachment if he didn't..........Clintons ignoring al queda led to 9/11, mudface.

You don't know shit from shinola, boy. Your posts get more amusing every day.

Pelosi also owns a winery and hotel in N.Ca. She takes campaign contributions from the unions, but will not allow her employees to be union.

When the "minimum wage law" went through Pelosi deliberatly exempted American Soma so that the employees of the Tuna cannery would not make more money, thus affecting her investment.

Liars, beggers, thieves, con artists...the American demorat party.
