    What De Niro has done is admit Obama is a failure but he gets a pass.

    I am tired if the country playing politics. The right reason should win though the debate process, and right now, that debate is not happening. The UK did it right.

    We haven't really had a national debate. The most compelling reason to drop some bombs would be to send a message to Iran and other nations. But I am kind of leaning to no. Kerry keeps citing classified reports.

    Given the facts, I am glad Obama and Kerry are going about this as they are. They aren't being pushy with propaganda and misinformation. Thank God for that.

    But the other side of this issue is the lack of leadership and character in Congress and senate. They all seem chicken **** to take a stand one way or another, they aren't having the passionate debates like the UK did because they are worried about reelection or whatever.

Yes, it's a political calculation, and some things could have been handled better, but this was the right political calculation and it needed to be one. We expect the President of the United States to take a tough stand on issues of grave foreign policy interest, be it a nuclear Iran, genocide, or chemical weapon use on civilian populations. He gives one, which was what we expected, and the coalition around him evaporated. This simply makes sense.

    What mistake do you want him to admit? He wants congressional approval, but he doesn't need it. And from what I heard, he is willing to go in without congressional approval as well.

    "Tough stand" my dairy aire. He's a sniveling weasel that rather than own up to his own mistakes is more than willing to not only blame everyone else - INCLUDING his own country and people - rather than man up to his incompetence and stupidity and admit he made a mistake.

    We are too, the Dems and Reps in Congress are getting ready to hand Obama a big NO.

    Don't you think he made a mistake by not going to Congress right after the chemical attack? What exactly is he going to bomb now? Is that a new military tactic, tell your enemy you are going to bomb them and give them time to move their mobile launchers and hide their chemical weapons in populated areas? Everyone is seeing first hand what a mistake they made electing this incompetent to the highest office in the land.

    Barak Obama's accomplishments as President of the United States--------------being the first African American President of the United States. It pretty much stops there.
