    Re: Now he's lying about the Red Line...

    This administration can't get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi and don't really care that our own ambassador was murdered in our own embassy, but they are 100% sure what happened in Syria and are concerned about that? Gimme a break.

    You gotta give him credit though. He's playing women like Boehner, McCain, and Cantor like cheap whores on a dance pole eager for dollar bills.

    I'm not defending him. I don't want strikes in Syria....I'm defending the fact he's going to Congress to seek approval.
    I'm defending the idea that the International community has condemned the use of chemical weapons and has supposedly drawn a red line...that the use of chemical weapons requires consequences.

    I'm nothing like conservatives that hooped and hollered and blindly followed the Bush administration into a ground invasion of Iraq.
    I'm pointing out criticisms of him I think are just wrong. I don't agree with him that the US is the default protector of international norms. I don't agree we should strike Syria. I also don't agree with Conservatives that somehow have turned into doves...I guess since 2008...well unless Obama doesn't act...then they are hawks.

    Bwahaha! I'm against strikes in Syria. I know..it's tough for some people to understand but you can be nuanced in your perspective of the situation. I don't want us in there...but there sure as hell is a lot going on. I guess it's easier for some..It's Obama so they are against it.

    Right. Obama didn't say "you didn't build that, or "red line." It was all a figment of our tens of million of minds. Glad you cleared that up for us.

    Really? You think Congress will enhance its reputation by standing behind the words of a spineless President who can't even manage the courage to stand behind his own words? You think the international community does anything but laugh now when they hear the buffoon speak? And the American public's reputation was lost when after four years of this clown in office they choose to reelect him.

    Well of course he *said* it - but goodness, just because he said it, you don't really believe he said it, do you?

    Sad thing is, I don't think it's "our congress" any more than it's "our government" or "our president."

    We're so screwed...
