The cheese stands alone.
The cheese stands alone.
Hi ho the merry-o
The cheese stands alone.

Shamed by France of all places, Obama desperately looks for someone to listen.
Well, he's got a week to polish his speech and gather his evidence.
Meanwhile, we all wonder what this is all about.
If it's about national security, act now.
If it's about defense of humanity, act now.
If it's about neither, what can he say that will spur action?

Such idiocy... trying to strong-arm Congress. This guy reminds of the song about Hitler and Goering...

Hitler has only one ball
Goering has two,
but they are very small.

Maybe he'll remember what a fiasco he caused, next time he decides to tell another Country-they crossed a red line. He wasn't prepared for them to call his bluff, now he's up a creek with no paddle.

Knowing Congress, we can get this put on the fast track and have it out of there by July 2014 at the latest. While we're waiting, we really should tell Syria what targets we will be hitting and when. Then we might as well just get the money flowing too, so they can start to rebuild as soon as we're done.

and the media is STILL cutting this guy slack....

they would have totally disemboweled ANY other president by now, democrat or republican...

apparently, being honest about a black president is considered not only racist, but a hate crime as well!

Tough talk. Bluff called. But a shot across the bow in an already unstable middle east to save face? Do we really want to unilaterally start another war? We cannot be the world's only police force. We need the UN and our allies. Since we have neither right now, just admit defeat.

It's all politics now.

Neither side gives a rat's ass about Syrians.

The GOPasaurs will vote which ever way they think harms the President more than themselves.

When it was convenient for Obama to vote against raising the National debt he did so before he was for it.

When it was convenient for Obama to claim the President needed Congressional approval prior to any military action before he was against it.

Obama and Libtards are the hypocrites. Wake up.

The UN wants no part of it.

The UK's Parliament wants no part of it.

NATO wants no part of it.

Jordan, Egypt and most of the Arab League want no part of it.
