    The Obama war criminal is already responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent women and children and this week he has added to his list of death.

    You really need to pick the right argument to make your points... You certainly have a valid line of argument for the right debate; this is not the right debate to make that point. Obama is at the United Nations and Congress voted themselves a vacation. Obama is doing something about the issue; Congress is in hiding. Congress returned from recess to face a series of difficult decisions and positions, but without so much a taking a debate, much less a vote on this issue, they decided to vote themselves a vacation and head for the hills so they wouldn't be caught taking a position.

    To use a line from Evita: ".... our nation's leaders are a feeble crew...." These people are suppose to be part of the leadership, yet they lack the courage to make any policy decisions (other than really stupid ones, like shutting down government). When we actually have a question of importance (what should we do about ISIS)... Congress has literally run as far away from decision, from position and from moment of truth as they possibly could. These guys are WEAK.

    In the matter of what to do about ISIS, Obama is on-the-job; congress has shirked responsibility. Not sure how you can argue otherwise?

    Greetings, apdst.

    So Congress voted themselves a vacation. Okay, I would be interested in knowing if the vote was close, and who voted no; or was it nearly unanimous from both parties? Since Obama made the decision to do his bombing thing alone, should we be surprised that Congress decided to let him have it his way? That way, they won't be blamed if it goes sour. - Obama will own it.

    Point out the part of The Constitution that allows the president to do what he wants, when Congress doesn't let him have his way.
