Indeed, work is piling up around me as I waste time arguing with the likes of you.
Indeed. It does take a considerable amount of time defending the indefensible.
Really enjoyed AmericaFirst's massive swing and a miss in this thread.
Our elected reps selling us out again. I hope the midterms are unkind to all of 'em.
Boehner sucks! Cantor is the only Jewish member.
Did Obama seriously just say that Congress drew the "red line"?
No he said the red line was drawn by prior congressional actions and international treaties. And the Majority Leader of the House agrees.
You're a piece of work
This isn't a good stance for Boehner to take, from a political POV. The majority of American's do not support involvement in Syria, don't trust the "evidence" (I least I don't) and faces an uphill battle in congress. Not to mention that most of our allies will not be with us. Let France handle it.
There are bigger fish to fry and they need to be all about domestic issues.
The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have used up the public's taste for additional military action. I am not sure things will stop with bombs. I fear we'll see "boots on the ground" and conflict with Iran...
Then they are both wrong, deflecting, rationalizing, or idiots. Are any combination. We are not party to a treaty that compels us specifically to militarily enforce a ban on chemical weapon use, let alone against the wishes of the security council.
No one I heard is complaining about that. I just hope that the congress says no... and Obama listens to the congress if they do say no.
Rick, your comment reminded me of this interesting quotation from the article I quoted in the other thread:
Really the first time in a long time that I've seen a sitting President speak against aggrandizing power in the Executive branch.
I felt the breeze from here
Especially since he's been 'ruling like a king' all on his own for 5 years now. In fact this would be the first time that I can remember that Obama would actually do what the congress says.
This loan-ranger is out of control.
My take on all this urgency is that Obama is trying to put: Benghazi, NSA, Holder's stupidity, IRS, EPA, illegal Cap & Trade, Fast & Furious, and all the rest of his failures and scandals on the back burner. Plus, he has the added benefit to demand a budget (its coming due soon) that he'll completely dictate, because of a full on war we'll have to deal with... It's the perfect "Wag the Dog" scenario.
My post said "a sitting President," not this one specifically. Aggrandizement of executive authority has been a Presidential practice, irrespective of party, long before this administration took office, whether it be Japanese interments to the "unitary executive" theory.
Forgive me if you think I'm not impugning both sides of the aisle. But, never in my lifetime have I ever wondered if we'll turn ourselves into an enslaved society, dependent on Nanny State for our existence. Wilson is long dead, but now we have Obama... Aggrandizing his office to royal stature.
