Pres Obama has bumbled this just like he does almost everything else. He made public his desire to go into Syria before he even knew how the Senate would react. He allowed Putin to upstage him. He sent his Sec of State on TV before himself to trumpet the cause. He began this prior to the G20 instead of waiting until he got back therefore losing what little momentum he had on Capital Hill. He hasn't been honest and said what he would do if his proposal were voted down in the Congress. I could go on and on with this. The guy's incompetent and in over his head in matters like this. He doesn't seem to think his way through things. Now, you want to give him credit for that? Sounds like some Kool-Aid drinking to me.
