    You do know that this thread reeks of hypocrisy about "politicizing war", right?

    Perhaps the wrong reasons could still provide the right outcome. Certainly some (R) will vote against Obama for anything, other will vote against because of voter pressure... I'm sure there's thousands of reasons to say no.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Re: Are the republicans voting against syria for the right reasons?

    There is a reason they are known as the "party of NO". The reality is, if the President had an R behind his name they would be whooping up they way the always do. This is just another in the Party of No's oppose everything and anything that Obama wants, they are so predictable.

    For the record...I don't support it any more than I would support it if the President were Republican. We don't belong in Syria any more than we belonged in Iraq. We are not the police of the world.

    Well compared to the other guy that evolved on abortion, gay marraige, health care, taxes, and almost any other issue you can think of, that doesn't sound too bad.

    I don't care why the GOP is blocking Kerry-Obama. THe war is a dumb idea. Chalk up a victory for all the wrong reasons.

    No more predictable than all the anti-war Bush impeachment crowd post 2003, who are now banging the war machine drum for (D) Obama 10 years later. The hypocrisy is so deep America needs hip waders.

    Who are you talking about? I don't see many liberals banging the war machine drum. Care to point out what the hell you are talking about? I agree that if there are, they are just as hypocritical as the party of No.
