    Can't wait to hear how horrible this decision was and how awful a leader Obama is.

    Then I can't wait until sixteen pages later, it's shown that the wingnut criticizing Obama called for exactly the same thing a month ago.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Can't do worse than Iraqi airstrikes.

    The US doing it instead of Iraq is surely a relief to civilians.

    First they sue Obama for Executive orders.
    Now they want executive orders when they can't get their own bill on the House floor.

    When will the mission be accomplished? When they finish the genocide or conversion of all non believers and the black flag of Khurasan flys over a worldwide Islamic caliphate? Go bury your head back in the sand!
