AFRET, turn off Faux news. The President DID brief Congress! Get some facts. Wow, consulting Congress and briefing them--that hasn't been done in years! It will be a hoot to see what the GOP does and WHY they do it.

I wonder why some misinformed folks here label Dems as welfare people.

Did you know that all the Red States has the most welfare takers? Red states are the poorer states? Income the lowest in red states than blue?

So, the conclusion here is that these Republicans are the biggest drain on our system, The biggest welfare hicks, The poorest. Yet the pea brains in the red states continue to vote Republican making fun of others while on their Reagan phone, eating their food stamp grits.

Hey Earl,,,,try this one for size.

Most Democrat voters are welfare moochers who are'nt too smart or educated enough to think for themselves..that's why they have their gods Rachel Maddow and Al Sharptonto tell think what to think.

You are a idiot if you think political rhetoric can only go one way.

We do not belong in Syria. They hate the United States and they cheered on 911. I am glad the line has turned a shade of yellow (for caution).

Obummer is Caught in His own Trap. Running His Mouth on the Red Line has come back to haunt Him. If he can get Congress involved then he can create a Scape Goat if things Go Bad.This has been His pattern.

I believed Colin Powell when he showed us satellite imagery of "evidence" of chemical weapons of mass destruction. The average guy doesn't know who or what to believe at this point.What about the Saudis? What is their stance on this one.We have given them jet fighters.What do they think about what is going on in their own backyard?Syria is to Russia what Israel is to The United States. Do we really want to rattle the hornets nest over there? Do we really want to arm rebels who may be helping the Islamic Brotherhood?We tried to rally other nations to no avail.Isn't that enough on our part? There is NO WAY we should jump in with or without France of all the countries in the world.Stay out,I say. STAY OUT.

Earl: This is downright funny!!

How can "Most repubs voters are mimimum wage earners who are'nt too smart or educated enough to think for themselves" when the republicans are always portrayed as the wealthy?

The rhetoric cant work both ways, pick one and stick to it, please! LoL!

According to reports by long time middle east Associated Press reporter Dale Gavlak,the chemical attack came from Syrian REBELS with chemical arms supplied by Saudi Prince Bandar.

It is also reported that the CIA is believed to be working with Prince Bandar directly since last year in training Syrian rebels in Jordan.

It is apparent that the US military has become mercenaries for the Saudis.

Yes, there were war crimes committed, but it is far from certain who actually committed these crimes.

And obama wants America to rush off to war before Americans and the world realized just who did what to whom.

Are people, killed by chemical weapons, more dead than people killed by bullets, bombs, and shrapnel?

Why should the president seek this corrupt congress' approval,they've obstructed,stonewalled & blocked everything,even healthcare..the repubs in this congress cannot be trusted. Btw,abelincoln you voted for that genius MR. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED twice and has the nerve to call someone foolish while the country is still engaged in two wars because of his lies. I don't think america should do anything about syria,there's problems HERE that need to be dealt with starting with ridding congress of these TRATIORS/COMMUNISTS called republicans who are trying to sabotage & destroy democracy in this country. If repubs advocate for war in syria,put their kids on the front lines to prove how much they love this country. Mission Accomplished !!!

Obama put this issue squarely in the lap of the Republican controlled House which will be split in half by the issue for a long time no matter how the vote turns out. He has the votes in the Senate. I like his tactic. Make the Republicans in the House decide something for once that normally is a clear cut conservative issue vote of YES. I wonder if they will include defunding of Obamacare in this bill too?

God forbid that congress interrupts their 5 week vacation to actually do something. But it may be good news. The party of no hopefully will say no again. But then again we are talking about the GOP here.

"Here is the resolution that Congress MUST pass to bail my sorry a.s.s out of the mess that I created by drawing phony red lines in someone else's sand without thinking about step 2.

Someone else's blood and the tax payer's treasure just to save face for obama's ranting in public.
