    Obama Blinked (sad day in American history)

    The guy just made are country look incompetent and weak. If he wanted to have Congressional approval for the military strike on Syria he should have asked for it in the first place. This 180 degree reversal makes the guy look like a bumbling idiot. I now wish I had my Presidential vote back. I would have never voted for him had I known that he was this incompetent and weak. My bad. Sad day in recent American history.

    • I wonder why people would vote for a man for president that had absolutely no qualifications. But you get what you vote for. Enjoy your higher taxes, ruined economy, and ruined health care system to boot.

    • Troll,

      Have you ever thought about the word Politician?

      Poly means many and Tic means lies.

      Politician is one who tells many lies. Did you really have a real choice? How can you trust someone that is a politician,

      It's not like they even try to cover it up and call themselves something else.

      At least an escort makes the attempt to rename her occupation.

    • Yeah, He made the country look weak, by seeking a vote....and enforcing democracy.

      If he didnt do that, repigs woulda itched about how their useless voices werent heard.

      Go home toiletalert.


    • So are you so strongly opposed to Democracy? If Obama wants to launch an unprovoked attack against the Syrian people, he should get approval from Congress. Bush did the same before he invaded Iraq.

    • He did what a prudent President would do. Let the Congress decide and any blame is not on him any longer.
      Further evidence is needed and the entire world needs to be persuaded to not risk alienation of the large nations of the World that hold your debt.

      If China gets #$%$ off they can just dump treasuries an masse and raise those rates to 10% overnight. That would bankrupt the US or ruin the PetroDollar.

      • ""If China gets #$%$ off they can just dump treasuries an masse and raise those rates to 10% overnight. That would bankrupt the US or ruin the PetroDollar""

        No that would not bankrupt the U.S. The Fed could buy all treasuries.

      • A day ago he was not going to seek Congressional approval and now he is. That makes him look incompetent, indecisive and weak. If he wanted to get Congressional approval then he should have asked for it from the get go and not after he encountered strong resistance from Congress. If I was a dictator some where in the world right now I would not be worried in the least about Obama after this move. The Syrian government is probably laughing their a(sses off right now. He is also a fool because the Republicans would love nothing more than to embarrass him in front of the whole world. If he loses the vote, his Presidency is effectively over. Can you say lame duck?
