    then all of them need to be dismissed from office.

He wouldn't have much weight going forward if they don't support him.

    But this would still humiliate him even if they didn't take a vote. MS media will jump all over it.


    I just don’t believe that if defeat is certain, the House leadership will want to see a president utterly humiliated on the House floor in a public vote,” one top aide to the Republican leadership told me.

    An attempt would be made to let the whole thing go away. I don’t think it would be done to give the GOP any extra leverage in debt-ceiling or budget negotiations — Obama isn’t the grateful type — but simply because the weakness it would demonstrate wouldn’t be good for the country,” the aide told me.....snip~
    Real power is having every justification for attacking, for crushing, for destroying and yet, staying your hand. When Syria or anyone in the world have a clear realization that the tides of their breath rise and fall on the whim of the US, that the only reason they are here on this little planet of ours is because we will it, we allow it, and they're on borrowed time that we've lent them -- that's strength, not weakness.
