    Notice the two people in the picture, a minority and a woman.
    This is a Conservative Con. Dis., 85% White before the remap.


    So, how does the sheep of that district make up for knowing about the National and the Physical Security of the US.....doesn't matter if they lean Right or Left. Sheep are sheep no matter where they live.

    Yeah and Mark Kirk supported him too......that's also despite knowing that Rebel/Terrorists had used Chems and that's with the UN saying both sides committed atrocities.

    Course you already know over half the Democrats in the House don't support him with this action over Syria.

    Obama went to the G-20, saw Putin, Putin leaned on the Syrians, all sides will claim a win-win, Syria went from not having Chemicals to giving them up overnight, the hope that the civil war will end with Putin's help, a good time at the 2014 Olympics, Putin looking like the NOBEL, and the World is better.

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

    What you are seeing is everyone understanding that the bull crap Obama's diplomatic team has been running with over the last month has forced us into a catch 22 where there are no good outcomes for the US in this crisis. This frustration is compounded by the fact that it didn't have to happen. All Obama had to do was not make stupidly specific threats in public when he obviously had no expectation of having to act on it.

    Out looking for friends as usual? Illinois is all over the International stage on Syria, with Durbin trying to whip Schumer. Reid to the rescue again, delaying the vote. Mitch would have scheduled a vote to embarrass Obama. Sorry to break the news. The USA won this one.

    Haha, no. The Civil War ends when one side is dead. Putin's involvement in hastening the end of the civil war would only involve sending Assad more ammunition and running interference in the UNSC.

    The only real outcome of this, in the end, is ensuring Russia stays involved in Syria and the US stays out.

    In the end that isn't the worst possible outcome that could be, but it exposes the US as an inept diplomat and toothless and it could have all been avoided if our idiotic president were more careful with his words.

    Kinzinger has a Veterans' Home in LaSalle. Before his remap, he lived in Manteno, where there is another Veterans' Home, where my Dad ended up. His office in Ottawa does a great job for the Veterans and other local issues, even if he is a Repub. We're like that downstate. We trust Kinzinger and Durbin, both on Foreign relations.

    Me?.....nah. I lead the way. Sua Sponte.

    Maybe that's cuz of all those defense contracts Durbin is part of, only #2 Behind Johnny Quest.....sorry to break the news. All the Headlines across the globe are talking about How Obama has backed down. Backed off. Was looking for a political ploy to save face. Now he just needs to wash his face. Maybe it will help with that SourPuss he has been sportin lately.

    Note.....the Clue should have been. Obama had no Cheshire grins. Wake up and smell the coffee.

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

    And here I though you'd be positive if you posted on me first. Give Peace a chance, Bro, but deal from strength, as Obama did by showing Putin some of his toys...

    repetitive...

    Quid Pro...

    pure hackery, like calling Obama "schuck and jive" by Limbaugh...
    it could have all been avoided if our idiotic president were more careful with his words.
    this hackery is in every post of yours and has nothing to do with my OP
