    House Might Not Vote on Obama’s Syria Resolution

    House Might Not Vote on Obama's Syria Resolution | National Review Online


    This would be the absolutely WORST thing the House could do. A House vote against Syrian action would be the BEST thing for this Country. It would show that this is still -- albeit in some miniscule, ridiculously impuissant way -- a country OF THE PEOPLE.

    The House not voting is tantamount to giving Obama unquestionable and unlimited authority.

    With Republican leadership as it is we might as well bend over
    and kiss our butts goodbye!

    Boehner is a useless speaker & Cantors not much better.
    We as a country deserve better but it isn't gonna happen.

    “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.
    Well, I can only imagine the exploding heads when reading that.

    Which should be evident to everyone, excepting partisans of course, that the country is getting trashed by both parties and our democratic system is not working. I still maintain that Jimmy Carter is right on this.
