    Obama has already done it with Libya so it would be no problem for him to repeat the process, though 'leading from behind' with no Allies would seem more difficult this time around. He is going to Congress in order to share responsibility in the decision making process, just as he is now weaseling out of his Red Line comments.

    His courage appears to be in telling ever greater lies and expecting people to continue to believe them.

    I think it's fair to say that presidents particularly of late have been increasingly violating the constitution. That old republican Nixon said, "........if the President does it, it's not illegal." Which is to say that the president, by virtue of being president, can do anything. And then faithful little partisans, ignore, cover up or excuse it when their president does it and bitch the whole time the president from the other party is doing it. Obama supporters, the same ones that were raising hell over Bush (rightly so I might add) are largely silent now that their boy is in office. You who are raising hell, right now over Obama (rightly so I might add) I'm sure were silent when Bush was president. So..........it's the partisans that are destroying our democracy!

    Dang it Monte, the partisans are supposed to attack the forces of the occupying enemy not aid and abet them.

    What truly bizarre reasoning. Your advocating Obama violate the law, agreeing that he did in the past and urging him to do it again!! I MUST be in the twilight zone.

    Help I'm steppin' into the Twilight Zone
    Place is a madhouse
    Feels like being cloned
    My beacons been moved
    Under moon and star
    Where am I to go Now that I've gone too far
