    Those ears should be back in the stewardess station making drinks.
    O stepped in a pile and now is begging for somebody to tell him what to do.

    Dems love trying to rag on a Rep for going to war for all of the wrong reasons (they think), but when their guy does the same thing, somehow it’s different? Hypocrites all.

    Republican leaders are being very supportive of the President’s position, though they are highly critical on how the POTUS came to his decisions. It is hard to see their support as anything more than protecting their own interests when they have one of their own in the Oval Office. By supporting this President, they firm the foundation for future Presidents.
    Too bad they, and their Democrat counterparts, can’t put the same effort into their stated goals of 2010 and show some laser focus on creating jobs for non military businesses.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    For all of you who missed his speech in 2007.

    all the troops in the world won’t be able to force Shia, Sunni and Kurd to sit down at a table, resolve their differences and forge a lasting peace. In fact, adding more troops will only push this political settlement further and further into the future

    " Well except for “my guy.”" Thanks for the chuckle! This makes a good argument for term limits on all of them.

    A government of imbeciles (a full complement of which the U.S government maintains at all times, in war and peace) works only when one imbecile has no greater voice than the another. It is on the basis of that assumption that the U.S. constitution was composed: to be imbecile-proof, especially in limiting the power, authority and unilateral actions of the imbecile at the top. If government were devoid of imbeciles, this story might be quite different; but here we enter into a world of fantasy and wild conjecture.

    If Assad falls Al-Qiada,Hamas,and Hezbolla get chemical weapons.The dems friends Russia,China,and Iran are on Assad’s side and have little respect for Obama.Only France is willing to help.The money for the war will have to be borrowed from China.
    I guess Eygpt should give back some of those billions borrowed from China since they threw out the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama needs it to support some Islamic extremists in Syria.

    @Clark Kent

    Who was it Clark that declared in no uncertain terms that there would be “dire consequences” should anyone (yes anyone not just Assad) be so bold as to use WMD’s such as toxic gas on civilians?

    The elephant?

    It is simple and yet you miss it entirely.

    By their fruits you will know them.

    David: the transcript of ACTUAL words used IS important. The point on humanitarian aid, and the fact the “whole bunch of chemical weapons” changing the calculus, not MANDATING an automatic response, is also important.


    While I don’t support military action in other peoples’ civil wars, the fact Obama was discussing re-calculating an appropriate response, not just jumping in “whole hog” is an important difference from our actions in Grenada, Panama, Iraq, Afghanistan, and back to Iran/Contra where we only broke the law to finance the killing.
