    The people I mostly run into that didn't vote for Obama voted for Romney. Those folks apparently think it's OK for the leader of the free world to think that when you die your spirit is teleported to a planet called Kolob, which is a planet that sits right next to a throne floating in space in our Universe that god sits on. They are cool with this cult being founded by a horse thief that thinks he came from a secret tribe of Israel that magically found it's way to New York three thousand years ago. They also think it's cool for the leader to come from a family where the grandfather had a dozen wives and was being chased around North America by Federales for being a polygamist. And don't get me going on Lyin' Ryan; who said he was "one of us" but then gets caught by Congress and the IRS for lying and not telling Congress that he had $5 million stashed in a secret account. Us "common folks" don't actually have a secret $5 million dollar account hidden off somewhere.

    And while I voted for neither of these parties since it is my belief that both platforms require a supporter to be insane because the GOP and DNC platforms are so offensive to common sense; I do however believe Obama is a very fair minded President and has the utmost integrity. Unlike Reagan; he did not sell arms to Iran illegally while at war with them and then use the hidden cash to fund a terrorist war in Central America. And unlike Bubba Clinton, he wasn't boning 21 year old girls in the Oval Office or paying back Walmart with his power because Sam Walton put his wife on the Board of Directors and wanted to see profit from that ex job. And unlike Bushtard II, he didn't give tens of billions in no-bid contracts to his VP's ex company Halliburton as a favor, even though that ex company got busted for ripping off Americans, which culminated in hundreds of millions in fines and some officers of Halliburton going to prison. Or Jimmy Carter, the scum sucking pig that after being an employee of Coca-Cola goes on to be President and makes sure that Congress passes a law giving Coca-Cola unlimited sweetener at $1 a barrel (called the Coca-Cola Law) with the rest of the cost being paid for by taxpayers and then championing Coca-Cola into communist countries as a payback for his previous job. Or Nixon and Watergate and his illegal paybacks to Pepsi as a return for being their Lawyer before being POTUS. Obama has the highest integrity of any POTUS since I was born (when JFK was in power).

    re: Congress not rushing back for Syria vote

    So why do we have to enforce the rules especcially when it cost us money??? I am still waiting on Iraq to pay us back for the Bush war?? Sorry we need to set this one out. We are not the worlds police, lets take care of our own for a little bit before the rest of the world.

    re: Congress not rushing back for Syria vote

    It looks to me like Obama is following David Cameron in going to his politicians for backing, should be interesting. If US politicians are as 'in-tune' with their populace as UK politicians (for a change) seemed to be, we will get another thumbs down for action.

    The Congressional GOP leadership supports this move by Obama.

    Maybe it bothers these people that we are not killing innocent civilians as collateral damage with out drones.

    Looks like Carter Jr. want's to finish what his father, Carter the first, didn't finish. Jimmy Carter destabilized Iraq and Iran. Look what happened since. Obomba (Carter Jr.) is doing what his daddy did. Using the way they do things in the Middle East as cause to change rulers. Ayatollah Khomein ruled with an iron fist. Hi struck down rebels with no mercy. The country was stable and wealthy. Citizens who obeyed the laws lived well.

    Libya was Jr's attempt to follow in daddy's footsteps. He's not stopping there, and the rebels are not the good guys. Their culture is not like ours. The rebels need to be taken out fast and hard, or else we get those like Osama Bin Laden to rise in ranks, power, and destructive capability.

    Absolutely. Just look at Iran, before and after Carter aided in leadership change in '79.

    Sorry but I dont like excuses.

    Unless our government can prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt that Syria poses a direct and imminent threat to our security here at home, we should not be getting involved in their civil war in any way, shape, matter or form.

    Further evidence that the GOP & DNC are one and the same. Neither one is concerned over the limitations the Constitution places upon them...they will just ignore it anyhow.
