    Nonsense. I am sick of the moronic argument that it is Obama, the man, and not his policies, and constant use of "end runs" around the actual law by executive order or having "unknown" folks inside executive agencies making "new policy decisions", that cause most of the republicant objection. Even with PPACA, often called ObamaCare, many demorats defend (explain away?) that huge mess as merely a "first step" toward UHC while saying any critics "have offered no alternatives" when the plain fact is that they will simply not accept any alternatives other than UHC (unless, of course, that "alternative" is PPACA).

    Can you explain just how "the country" benefits from lobbing a few missles into Syria? Obama has been all over the place with what the "ultimate goal" of U.S. military action in Syria is. So far it has changed from removing Assad, then to "stopping genocide" and now it seems to be simply "punishment" for crossing the, totally Obama defined, "red line" too many times.

    You can always tell when a liberal has run out of excuses for Obamas failures: they circle back to blame Bush. Seriously dude, Obama is in his second term as president. In Hilary Clinton, he had the (supposed) greatest Secretary of State in the history of Secretary of Statedom. Yet in the face of mass slaughter and WMD use, Obama cant cobble together a single ally to take action. And you blame Bush? Blind partisanship only serves to make you look, well, blind. Open your eyes. Obama botched this all by himself.

    re: Congress not rushing back for Syria vote

    Remember back when Obama argued vehemently for his constitutional authority for military action in Libya without congressional approval beyond 90 day? Now he runs afoul of the Russians and suddenly finds he can't do anything without congressional authority from the start.

    Guess that reset button with Russia didn't work.

    The people running the city are obviously unable to establish or even maintain a civilized, orderly society.
    Detroit was once a premier city in america.

    Yes; and what do we call the crime of giving aid and support to enemies?

    re: Congress not rushing back for Syria vote

    Explain the logic that says he's ready in a day/week/month to take action, but doesn't call congress immediately into session (as Great Britain did), and would rather wait a week for them to reconvene ?

    The FSA is infested with al Qaida, reporters have documented dozens of stories throughout this Syrian war in which they have kidnapped journalists and UN officials, destroyed Christian churches, tied civilians hands and shot them execution style, placed truck bombs in front of federal buildings killing civilians and host of other crimes against civilians. The CIA should never have been training them in their Jordanian camps, arming them and sending them in there to begin with. Even that is something that should have been debated by congress. The Assad government is recognized by many nations as the legitimate Syrian government. China and Russia absolutely will not allow the US to obtain authorization for use of force at the UN. So unless your advocating our president attack another country that has not first attacked us, in violation of international law, he has no other alternative. And, you can't even get Rumsfeld on board with this one!!!
