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.

Yes, after intel reports from the Brits and congress, Bush went after Iraq based upon WMD (chemical weapons in todays liberal speak) and yet you libbies said the real reason was for oil. Remember now? No? Here, I'll hold your hand AGAIN.
"I mean, I think, Iraqis, I think, feel that if we drove smaller cars, maybe we wouldn’t have to kill them for their oil.”
Bill Maher
"I fear that our true motivation is about oil and our own flailing economy; about the failure to destroy Al Qaeda and about revenge. It is criminal to put our servicemen and women in harm's way and to put the lives of so many civilians on the line for the misguided frustrations of the Bush administration."
Dave Matthews
"The lie that brought us into war was that Iraq was a threat to us. Well, now it is a threat. Now it is a terrorist hotbed. The fiction is now reality. And now we have to deal with it. It was an attempt at a corporate takeover. This was about oil. It wasn't about human rights. It's not about human rights."
Janeane Garofalo
"George W. Bush's Ten Commandments: Thou shalt not steal...votes.(big applause) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's...country.(big applause) Thou shalt not kill...for oil.(big applause) Thou shalt not take grammar...in vain.(big applause) I mean, whatever fu--ing happened to separation of church and state? I mean, you can't like, impose your god on my god. God has many names. God is God, God is Jehovah, God is Allah, God is Buddah, God is Beyonce."
Margaret Cho
Sooooo, what is messiah going after Syria for, huh? Can't be senseless murders because Chicago does it everyday as well as Detroit, DC, whereever liberals lead the cause. Maybe it's the 1.5 million babies slaughtered every year that's OK here in America.
Perhaps the answer lays in the Benghazi coverup and the weapons cache funnled to Syria from the Benghazi consulate. Shhhh, don't give the secret away.
what Benghazi cover-up?

The Canadian paper is saying what I knew all along, (because I read it in 2002)Senator Rockefeller from W Virginia went to Iraq, told Saddam the Democrats couldn't stop President Bush from liberating the Iraqi's, so he sent his WMDs to Syria, and Saudi Arabia. Now Russia has to go into Syria, and pick them up, all because of Obama's diminishing Presidency. And not a word from the Democrats, not a word.

<quoted text>he reversed the record...no, historic, job losses of the Bush admin. and we were back to more jobs in under four years....
that would be historic job growth, now wouldn't it?
Yes. It would be, if it actually happened!
Obama's policies have led the USA into the longest recession in history. More jobs? More than what? Unemployment is still high and getting worse. Those that have jobs are being paid less. Thanks to Obamacare, part time workers' hours are being cut.

Isn't funny how these low info people can see a 7.8% unemployment rate, and think it is better then what President Bush had? They think 7.8 is the new normal. Everyone knows people who are unemployed, or underemployed, There are 3 times as many people on food stamps as there were before the One, and that is fine with them.

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!
well he can bow to them just like he did to the king of saudi arabia
