WASHINGTON (AP) Officials in the Obama administration and on Capitol Hill say President Barack Obama intends to seek congressional approval for action against Syria.
Obama will speak on the developments in Syria from the Rose Garden on Saturday.
The officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak ahead of the president

Just say no.
He makes me want to puke
Yak, yak, yak....I really dislike being talked down to by monkeys with hand grenades.
This was Comedy Central. And we wonder why people around the world laughing at US?
Look at this idiot painfully trying to weasel out now that he finds himself standing alone.
Mr - I’ll go it alone - tough guy
Suddenly he now needs congressional approval, its the Limbaugh doctrine. There must be someone else that made the decision, avoid any accountably at all costs.
The Saudies must be pissed
p.s. any idea why the live thread was locked?
Watch for Boner and McLame to run to rescue Bozo.
A resounding NO. Obama looks like an idiot.
looks like? He is..
Obama’s in a bad place... Call your congressman and say no to bombing Syria!
the cheese stands alone
the cheese stands alone
hi ho the dairy oh
the cheese stands alone
Let him twist in the wind.
He’ll blame Congress in either event if this escapade FUBARs anyway.
Smart way to save face for Obama.
Now, it’s time to pressure Congress to just say no, and certainly say no in the absence of indisputable proof that Assad did it.
It was already posted by kristinn earlier. Scroll down the Breaking news, and you’ll find it only a couple posts down.
‘Obama looks like an idiot.’
Because he IS an idiot.
Over and over and over again thus jack wagon referred to our nation as a democracy.
Not once did he rightly call our country by its correct incorporation as a Republic.
Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised but, it is so old describing my country for his own invention of that which we are not, as a people, nor what we can never become.
Good ... soon America will have every congressperson on record .... Good.
Looks like Barry has unpainted himself from the corner...
Congress says no => 0bama rescinds his decision to attack 0bama => Nobel Prize Committee and the Press praise him as ‘peace warrior’.
Congress says yes => Nobel Prize Committee and the Press again call Republicans ‘war mongers’ => 0bama’s action is justified.
Obama looks like an idiot.
You're on the right track ... but personally, I think the term festering idiot is more appropriate!
Save face he looks like a raving wuss
looks like those Russian warships may have made their point...
Obama and his henchmen are looking for a way out of the bad situation they made for themselves.
I bet Aunt Esther is kickin’ his ass right now!
Obama BLINKS on the world stage. (I just watched the speech here in Russia).
Obama votes “Yes” and beats his chest - “See, I am a DECISIVE President. Strong as a bull.”
Congress votes No. “I MUST obey the Constitution”. (Aside to Lefty and Islamic friends) “I NEVER REALLY did not want to do it anyway!”
And the buffoon says what ?
The clown Obama , lying lame duck , is still talking ?
Bring eggs and tomatoes for that criminal who must be sued .
The UN inquiry then is useless .
Your buffoon president dare to speak about “democracy” as he IS NOT a democrat . He decides alone without proof ....
What is the hidden agenda and the true goal of the buffoon .
Let the Mooslims kill each other.
The republicans will roll over for him in one vote.
My super secret source says that Assad is ROFLHAO.
I say give him the damn approval. IF he rides point in AF One. Tip of the Spear, Boy....Tip of the Spear!
Ok, folks. Cooler heads have gotten to Obama, but it’s now up to We The People to burn up the telephone lines to our respective members of Congress (both houses, preferably).
Please, please, make these calls. Let Congress know we are opposed to any military action in Syria. Give Obama a way to save face, if you will.
It is up to every US citizen to do his or her duty.
My spouse and I’ve already made the calls, so I will turn it over to my fellow patriots.
If my Congressman votes to give it to him, I am going to raise holy Georgia Mountain hell on him.
0bama telegraphed his intentions without regard to Congress. Now they’re a convenient scapegoat for his mishandling of Syria. He really IS ‘The Amateur’.
It’s to be expected. It saves face, because he’s on record as saying that the POTUS can’t do these things alone, absent a clear national interest. Biden’s comments are even stronger (he says it would be impeachment material).
This way he passes responsibility over to Congress and makes himself look consistent in his principles.
And he knows darn well Congress won’t go for this. He doesn’t want to go in, but unless they help him, he has to do something. Every something is risky.
Benghazi, he couldn’t pass the buck. This time he can.
Can’t make this sh!? Up.
NOW it’s WE instead of ME.
Also there are other atrocities that have been given a blind eye to like the plight of the people of the Sudan.
>0bama telegraphed his intentions without regard to Congress. Now theyre a convenient scapegoat for his mishandling of Syria. He really IS The Amateur.<
True, that. But, he’s very conveniently forgetting the UN. That’s because a certain member of the Security Council will veto any action every single time. Can we all say, Russia? I knew we could.
Look, I do not care if he passes the buck. A confrontation with Russia over Syria would be catastrophic for the US. It must not happen.
As they say “Let’s hope profanity remains the only stranger here”.
Wasn’t congress supposed to be too “special” to consult?
Why would they want to listen to people with such a loooooooooooow approval rating now???
I’ll take it. We might get a few more months to prepare — or even to live, if it goes 10,000-suns-hot.
“I think the term festering idiot is more appropriate!”
Suppurating is even better!
Always been his escape plan he passes the buck congress will vote no (which is the only good thing) then he’s off the hook and tells his terrorist buddies he tried but his hands are tied and he also gets to label republicans in 2014/2016 election cycle as hippocrites that didn’t go after real WMDs while people are slaughtered etc... Once again he floats a total false flag op and we are swept out of power by low info voters and bleeding hearts...The End
I can't prove a thing ... but I'm convinced the mulatto bastard (but I repeat myself) is doing everything it can to keep from having the congress roiled about impeachment for Benghazi .. or F&F.
I believe, and again, I can't prove it ... the US is part of whatEVER is going on in Syria and that the timing of this event is too suspicious.
I also believe the mulatto bastard will occupy our time for the next year and a half with boojit.
I said it earlier, went to town and did some errands, back now, and it is even worse...
What a sordid stinking mess.
Dafuq is a boojit?
>Ill take it. We might get a few more months to prepare or even to live, if it goes 10,000-suns-hot.<
You’ll be around longer than will my neighbors and I. We’re about 4 1/2 hours (assuming no dang 18-wheeler wrecks along the way) from D.C.
Besides, you’re younger than me. (c;
