    At least that's a 'strategy".

    So they can tell the world that we are flying manned and unmanned flights over Syria.

    In case you hadn't notice, we're still at WAR with terrorists, terrorists emboldened by the buffoon bragging "Bring It On".
    Those aren't 'terrorists'! They're "jayvees"!

    There is no leader anywhere in the world who has confidence in Obama, or respects him. How he has 40% approval at home is the real mystery.

    Is it really his fault that the guy who delivers his newspaper is always a day or two late?

    There is every chance that Barrack Obama will weigh all the evidence, calculate all his options, and then do the stupid thing.

    This is Romney here:
    Exactly. Every effing crisis Obama finds about on TV are like this. Really? He REALLY hasn't come up with a plan on Syria yet?

    Not one that he is willing to share with the Press/GOP yet.
    Such as the NYT telling the World we're flying manned and unmanned flights over Syria.

    I'm just disappointed it took the President this long to learn how to play the opposition's game .

    The President has always been a slow learner. Its going to lose him the Senate in just a few short months.

    Another conservative counting his chickenhawks before they hatch-
    I've never made a prediction like that until Election eve, and I'm the reigning 2-time Senate champ from Politico.

    Try this latest poll:

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epo...ryor-4049.html

    Cotton wanted to bomb Syria with McCain, Obama, et al.
    Cotton is also running to the left of Pryor on social security.

    The companion governor's poll shows DEM Ross with a +2 lead for the first time ever.
    These are the first Arkansas polls in over three weeks .

    When the entire middle east is ridden of violence and is a peaceful democracy, then mac declares our soldiers may come home.
    We left, now we're going back...for more war. Had we stayed we would have been able to bring the violence to an end....permanently. That's not being a war hawk, that's committing to do whatever it takes to stabilize a region and end the cycle of warfare. Just like we did in Europe.
