That's a given

Who knows with this guy. My guess is that he wants to rule unimpeded with a democratic house and senate after 2014. He may well listen to the public opinion polls and not further risk 2014.

re: If Congress votes no go in Syria, Obama's reaction


I'm kind of curious how the public (and the politards) would react if congress voted no, and the administration simply threw their hands up and said "ok, no war."

How much of a curveball would that be

We all would lose our fricking minds man. It would be insane.

Odds of that happening are slim to none.

Do any of you actually think if we commit an act of war against Syria this administration would admit we were in a state of war?

I would be shocked but they have already been embarrassed by Britain not supporting war. It's great cover if you ask me.

He reiterated yesterday that he didn't need them for action...

So I think he blames them as obstructionists that hate the people of Syria and then..... I don't fricking know!

If he doesn't strike, he looks like the biggest fricking coward to any anti-US group in the world. He talked so much shite and then he doesn't follow through.

David Cameron certainly got embarrassed by the British Parliament, but I don't see how it embarrassed Obama. By the way, France's François Hollande will likely soon be embarrassed by his parliament as well, and then what?

By the way, does anyone else remember how Bush 41 was nearly embarrassed by Congress before Desert Storm? He was so busy being a diplomat, assembling the greatest coalition in the history of warfare and getting U.N. authorization that he overlooked the fact he still hadn't gotten Congressional approval. According Colin Powell, Bush knew that there was a real possibility that it would get voted down, so he had to decide what he would do if it did. After hearing from all the members of his war council, Bush decided he would go to war with or without Congressional approval even if it meant impeachment. Luckily for him he did get Congressional approval, but only five days before the war was due to start with a 52-47 squeaker in the Senate.

This would not surprise me at all. BO has positioned himself perfectly, again.

Congress votes 'No", BO tried, but those bastard Republicans blocked him.
Congress votes "Yes", it goes well, BO takes credit.
Congress vote "Yes", it goes bad, BO blames Congress

He's not as good as Clinton, but he is very good (politically speaking).

This is Obama's out. They will vote against and he will say congress and America has spoken. This lets his pussy arse ,big talk ,red line in the sand comment taste alittle bit better. Assad,Putin and The rest of the world leaders have no respect for Obama,do they respect the Office of the President of the US ? Absolutely ,but they have no respect or fear for Obama,he is an idiot.
