    so he let it occur with full knowledge it would happen?

    well, that's not very bright.

    But **** his political skill. If he doesn't know that commenting on something he hasn't seen makes him look stupid, then his perceived skills are moot.

    So? Are you saying that if the President, or SoS that they can bypass congress in any deal that this is acceptable?

    Why must you go from one extreme to another? Are those the only two options you see? When you got frustrated playing a game as a child, did you just turn the board over and pronounce that playing it was stupid anyway?

    Repeating that lie is not going to help. Iraq would never have had a Shia government while Hussein was there. You have always supported a loosing republican agenda, and your freaky civil war era avatar diminishes your stature.

    It appears, like usual, Obama thinks he can bypass Congress.
