    ask the EIGHTY PERCENT of his party in congress

    sorry
    You may criticize him for being weak on this. I would agree. You may criticize him for not being able to control his own party. I would agree. But don't pretend he is acting as he wants with no influence or obstacles.

    Bush had congressional approval and two UN resolutions. Obama doesn't haven't anything more than his dick in his hand.

    may?

    LOL!

    I would agree.
    now you're getting it!

    You may criticize him for not being able to control his own party.
    again...

    I would agree.
    that's only part of it

    ie, kerry and reid and rockefeller and schumer and the other 46 might just have a point

    they certainly think they do

    but who listens to them

    But don't pretend
    pretending is for kids, chairman

    obstacles.
    ATTABOY!

    Prof, you may be the most immature poster I know. You offer little in way of reasoning and thought, mindlessly link articles, making little to no rational explanation, and seldom if ever actually listen to the arguments presented. This is why I seldom respond to you.

    But, you and others are pretending that two different things are qual when they are not, and that Obama has not had any obstacles in his path. It is also dishonest to do that.

    Not exactly. Congress passed the buck and did not meet their responsiblity. They did not declare war. And the UN decidedly objected to the US invading, so the US cannot in any way use the UN as justification.
