Boehner aide: Obama must consult with Congress on Syria



quote:

An aide to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) warned the White House on Monday it must consult with Congressional leaders before taking any military action in Syria.


quote:

“More than just to Congress, the president has an obligation to the American people to explain the rationale for the course of action he chooses; why it’s critical to our national security; and what the broader strategy is to achieve stability,”

Boehner will probably fold on this issue too.

I remember when Rex was running around saying that one of the main reasons not to vote Romney was because he would bomb Syria.

so, is Rex the town crier or is he agreeing with Boehner? Don't think Romney is in this race - O I C: Rex was sharing his feelings about Brother Mitt.

re: Boehner aide: Obama must consult with Congress on Syria


Only problem is that much of Congress is in a war mood on Syria for some reason.

Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker
“I hope the president will … do something in a very surgical and proportional way, something that gets their attention,” he said. “At the same time, I hope it's the kind of action that doesn't move us away from the policy we have right now where we want to see the Syrian opposition group taking the lead on the ground.”

Corker’s comments followed a top Obama administration official saying there is "very little doubt" Syrian President Bashar Assad and his forces used a chemical weapon on civilians Wednesday near Damascus, killing at least 100 people


Corker was joined on the show by New York Rep. Eliot Engel, the top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, who called the alleged civilian attacks last week “horrific" and urged the U.S. to respond with its NATO allies.

“But we have to move, and we have to move now,” Engel said

It is a bizarre world we live in when level-headed Americans are looking to Russia to prevent us from getting involved in yet another useless act of war.

Our "betters" in DC know we are coming to the end.

The only hope their addled minds have is that a "war" will help to entrench them because of the need for "stability".

So they go and beat the war drums...and the good people rely on a KGB agent for help. Strange days indeed.

Involvement in Syria at this point is a lose/lose proposition for the US.
Which means that Obama will do it.

If I need another reason to regret my vote, this is it.

At least Romney was right about naval policy.

Our allies are already undermining the UN process. Tel Aviv called it a 'joke', and the UK declared that it was 'too late'.

Obama will do whatever he wants regardless of Boehner's council.

You actually voted for Obama?

You should've went with Gary Johnson.

I know, right?

I was a single issue voter. It really came down to foreign policy and I felt Obama offered a more traditional conservative approach.

I miss the George Baker era.

I hate to say it but you thought wrong. Obama loves himself some war like Bush did and Romney would be doing the same things Obama and Bush have done.

Obama is basically a neocon with some socially liberal ideals.

This is no offense to you but Obama voters in general....

Jokes on me.

In fairness, Romney's team was full of people like Eliot Cohen. That was reason enough to steer clear.

You have to laugh at what little to no value that has now.

It's fricking worthless now.

They gave the peace prize to a warmonger.
