Weekly Standard ^ | Tuesday September 3, 2013

Speaker of the House John Boehner says that he'll support President Obama's "call for action" in Syria:

"The use of these weapons has to be responded to and only the United States has the capability and capacity to stop Assad and to warn others around the world that this type of behavior is not going to be tolerated," said Boehner after meeting with Obama. "I appreciate the president reaching out to me and my colleagues in the Congress over the last couple of weeks.

Boner can support the “action” but hopeully the rest of Congress will actually vote NO if there is no U.S. national security threat.

“I support the military industrial complex and the millions of dollars they have contributed towards my many reelection races.”, is actually what he is saying.

If McCain were president, how would Obama vote regarding a Syrian attack? We all know he’d vote “no”.

This from Facebook:

I just called his office at 202-225-0600 and waiting on hold forever to speak to his representative and being told there is a higher volume of calls than normal and after waiting on hold for about 15 minutes, THEN get a voicemail type message from John Boehner about leaving him a voicemail.

You can opt at the beginning to leave a comment and you won’t have to wait.

No big surprise that Boner is supporting Obama against the desires of most Republicans. Considering his record, I would not expect him to do otherwise. The question I have is what exactly does Obama have on Boner, courtesy, no doubt from the NSA that allows Obama to so easily pull his strings.

If using gas warrants a US military response then equally strike each of the parties that used the gas. It isn’t rational for the US to choose sides between these two bad guys.

WWII support for USSR is a much different argument, but if it applies in the least it would support a strike solely against Al Qaeda.

It’ll pass, at least 60% of the House will support it, all the Democrats and most of the RINO’s too.

Maybe. Or maybe he’s just saying “I’m too stupid to think for myself, so I delegated it to the president.”

blackmail
gotta be

no reasonable explanation for committing the US to a unilateral non-UN sanctioned act of war where no direct US interests are threatened, where intelligence about the perps and motives is murky at best, where people assuring us it was Assad are the same team of liars who are still stalling on lying to us about Benghazi, and in a such a volatile region where there are no winners, only losers and worse losers

Whatever “they” have on Boehner must be BIG. And Boehner is a SMALL man to cave in. I keep hoping the “times create the man” and he will show up one day...it is obviously not gonna’ be Boehner.

So John Boehner, like the Prophet Obunghole, is for joining forces with Al-Qaeda to defeat just another rag head.

There are NO good sides to this fight. Stay the hell out of it. No matter what we do we will be hated so the best we can do is save our Troop’s lives and our money.

If killing hundreds of thousands of Kurds was not enough for our communist democrats to give Bush a pass then 1429 Syrian rag heads should not be a blip on the radar.

Rapidly coming to an end? Mine ended long ago. The last thing I sent in response to a GOP begging letter was a fake million dollar bill with Obama’s face on it.
