Those same folks now portray him as "weak" because he went to Congress, most often claiming it is an abdication of responsibility, or some sort of cop out. Well, you can't have it both ways. Being upset with him because he was going to launch some missiles, and then being upset because he DIDN'T launch missiles is quite frankly disgusting, and does nothing.
He had the opportunity a looong time ago to seek out some solid advice from his military, and foreign affairs advisers when all of this Middle East crap began to unfold with chemical weapons and Assad.
I'm totally against an idiotic missile launching target practice debacle @ $1.3 million
dollars a pop so that he can try to save a little face.
THE CACHE' OF CHEMICAL WEAPONS HAS BEEN MOVED TO CIVILIAN POPULATED AREAS
First he tells us there's no terrorist threats to the U.S. anymore, and doesn't acknowledge, (to this day) whether or not the takeover in Syria was a coop.
He draws a "red line" mos. ago.
He moves a whole Naval battlefleet into the region, ONLY because of the pressure/critisism from both media and his colleagues from both sides- THEN decides he'll act without the blessing from the U.N., and without Congresses' approval, and without
any supporting allies, (other than France).
THEN decides he'll appeal to Congress.
So the battlegroup SITS there, the chemical weapons get re-located, he goes and plays GOLF.
SOMETHING should have been done a long time ago to avoid all of this crap.
He did it-
Let him fix it.
If he had a son NOW, who would he look like?
Back at the ranch,.. we're still wondering about Holder, the IRS,, perjury, and WHEN are we going to get some answers about Benghazi?
