What Obama REALLY wants out of the conflict with Syria
He wants to create this situation so the Republicans can't consider not funding the government (more importantly Obamacare). It would look un-American for the Republicans to create strife at a time of war.
Funny they don't want to roll back the tax portions of Obamacare but just don't want to use the money for what it was intended. Their campaign of subterfuge and lies will cost them in the next two elections.
