    Who wants another weak President?
    Hopefully, the next president will be one who governs and doesn't campaign all the time.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

If he goes against congress, his approval rating may fall into the 30 percent range. That might make anything he tries to do from now on irrelavent.
    Good afternoon Pero - I think you're right about both the Senate and the House - I see Harry Reid pulled back on a scheduled test vote in the Senate scheduled for tomorrow and has not rescheduled yet - not sure if that means he's nowhere near the votes or the President has some new twist he's about to announce tonight.

    As for being irrelevant, I've been saying that ever since he travelled the country in his campaign bus claiming that sequestration had to stop or it would be the end of civilization as we know it - that's the snapshot in time when the majority of people in America saw him for what he is and started tuning him out.

    Re: Obama : I Might Lose Congressional Vote on Syria....

    In a series of six network interviews planned as part of a furious lobbying campaign in Congress, Obama said statements suggesting that Syria might agree to surrender control of its chemical weapons stockpile were a potentially positive development.

    At the same time, he said they were yet another reason for lawmakers to give him the backing he is seeking.

    "If we don't maintain and move forward with a credible threat of military pressure, I do not think we will actually get the kind of agreement I would like to see," he said on CNN.

    Which is why, as Commander in Chief in full control of the US military, you don't go to Congress until you have exhausted all diplomatic options, genius.

    I am thinking the republicans need to fire people like gingrich and rove and hire assad and putin to run their party. They are just as corrupt and freedom hating as the republicans, they love religion, and they seem to win against Obama.

    Not sure what you are referring to.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    I find it interesting to note who is more interested in discussing how the events in Syria might affect the nation and who is more interested in discussing how those events might effect Obama

    IMO, it's a pretty good way to separate the hacks from the non-hacks

    Myself.....I tend to look at who knows what National Security is really about. Then the Physical Security of the US. Tends to put it all into perspective when it comes to the sheep.

    Our Repup congressman who you know as an active Air National Guard pilot who is a veteran, Adam Kinzinger, has been way out front supporting Obama's call from the beginning. Link soon. He complained on Sunday TV about noone from Obama contacting him yet, which they promptly did.

    The Times
    This paper is a huge supporter of the Congressman.
    Notice the two people in the picture, a minority and a woman.
    This is a Conservative Con. Dis., 85% White before the remap.
    The editor was none too subtle with TODAY's picture.
