Rice: White House has 'no expectation' of losing Syria vote



quote:

National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Tuesday said the Obama administration was "quite confident" it would prevail in a congressional vote authorizing a military strike in Syria.


quote:

Rice defended the administration from critics who have charged that seeking congressional approval could give the Assad regime time to prepare. But Rice said that the administration had not "announced our intentions to the enemy."

And if things don't go Obama's way, what then?

He does have authority to take limited action. Would he?

If he didn't look foolish before, he will be completely incompetent if- after asking permission and being denied- he does it anyway. His ratings will tank to unprecedented levels, and he will be a liability to his party in 2014.

None of these a-holes seem to realize that this is not a game.

If only we actually had some adults in the fricking room.

Who does she think Obama is, LBJ? Obama's biggest weakness as a President is that he has neither the stomach or the skill to twist Congressional arms the way LBJ could.

Well clearly that makes everything he has ever done perfect. So I will assume you voted for another hero called McCain?

What makes McCain a hero? He got shot down and caught. To be a hero, you need to fight your captors. He was cooperating within a week by his own admission.

Can't link a whole book. Read Faith of my Fathers.

He was a high value prisoner and the son of an admiral in the Pacific Fleet. He wasn't tortured. He sustained all his injuries before he was captured and imprisoned.

Yes, he was a prisoner for five years, but he was a high-value prisoner that cooperated. He wasn't buried in a hole in the ground and left to rot like an enlisted man.

News flash sport. Every single POW gave up what they considered information. if you have ever spent any time at the Col Bud Day SERE school you would know that.
