    Can't conservatives ever start an honest thread?

    Obama still has retained the authority to strike even without Congress. By getting Congress' backing he magnifies the force of the US's resolve and signals that the strikes will not be internally diminished by government infighting. It's not our fault that countries that have no concept of separation of powers might see the move as "weak."

    IMHO, the move projects strength because it shows that Obama has confidence that Congress will fall in line and back him up, and that he doesn't have to act as a knee-jerk reaction.

    Only conservatives find deliberations before rushing into war a bad thing.

    That's why you gave us Bush and his vanity wars, and Obama has deftly avoiding the military and foreign policy catastrophes that tea party types always bumble into

    Yeah that really explain those 60 Democrats and all their kinds of Deliberations. Nor why another Obamaton has walked away from the Kool Aid.

    Course it doesn't explain why Obama's Foreign Policy is a Failure either!!!!!

    You forgot to use the words meme, tea-baggers, and noise machine. You're slipping a little bit there.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    Somehow you think deliberations before bombing somebody is a bad thing. And that's what makes you a conservative.

    No not quite, I think when YOUR MAN says he welcomes the Debate. Pretty much puts it into context.

    Now like him you need to face the reality.....sometimes you're going to hear the **** you don't like.

    Especially with me.....when I got the Mic!!!!!
