    Both of those incidence occurred in cars, 2 years apart, and they weren't on U.S. embassy soil. There's no outrage since they weren't killed in an embassy in which they knew was vulnerable, in which the ambassador requested multiple times for security and was ignored. You do understand no two incidents could be the same, and that maybe the criticism Obama is getting for Bengazi may be legitimate? Especially since the NY Times seems to have found at least one of the terrorists involved yet the DOJ cannot and has not arrested or found anyone for an entire year.

    If I had outrage it was 5 years ago. Your partisanship is only beaten by your lack of historical context and knowledge.
    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.

    His speech was comical last night.

    One would have thought Congress was beating the drums for war and Pres. Obama was desperately finding alternatives.

    Ultimately, no one is going to look ridiculous though. He and his administration have said repeatedly "this isn't a delaying tactic" but it's a delaying tactic. He kicked the can down the road knowing Assad isn't going to comply but his very loyal media isn't going to make any noise either. Ironically, following through with this proposal would require substantial boots on the ground but it's not happening anyway.

    I'm sorry, do you know me? Do you know my voting record or my stance on previous presidents?

    Jesus christ, what a snobby, straw man of an argument.

    This certainly looks like carrot-and-stick diplomacy, emphasis on the stick. While we in the US scoff at the ineffectiveness of strikes, apparently over there they are much more afraid of it than we thought. If that's the case, and if this plan works, then you must acknowledge that the bellicose statements of Kerry and the White House and the positioning of our ships in the region had their effects on Assad.

    What I don't understand, though, is why they chose now to resurrect the idea, when from all appearances the vote in Congress would have prevented military action. I can only guess that Russia and Syria don't believe that Congress could change the President's mind.
    Oh, c'mon!

    I see it says "Liberal" on your profile but you can't possibly be under the impression Pres. Obama was getting anywhere in his push to attack Syria or Assad was so scared he agreed to turn chemical weapons over to the international community. That's just too ridiculous to believe.

    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.

    So, when trying to take credit for what Putin did, who will look more ridiculous?
    They both look stupid enough already.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Obama had painted himself in a corner. The diplomatic developments were his only way out. And he saved face rather nicely. This was the only way Obama and Putin stood a chance to both back down and save face at the same time.
    By the time people realize that Syria will not comply, the spotlight will be off of the matter and we can get past this distraction and focus on bigger issues such as Iran, our debt, and the 45,000 Americans who die every year due to lack of proper medical care.
    Ah ta ta ta....

    Stick with the choices you were given...

    As this poll, every other poll, and every post should be an Obama hater's glad handing pep rally.

    The man is an abomination.

    Besides, there is some hate for Kerry too...
