President Obamaís liberal activist base is adamantly opposed to military strikes in Syria, according to a new survey the Progressive Change Campaign Committee released Wednesday.

PCCC says more than 57,000 of its activists weighed in, and 73 percent of them opposed the U.S. taking action in Syria. Just 18 percent supported strikes, and just 14 percent said the U.S. should go ahead unilaterally if it canít find any allies.

“Progressive Change Campaign Committee”.

Abbreviated PCCC. Spelled backwards is CCCP.

Oh, the irony...

Indeed, a majority of the activists don’t believe Mr. Obama and Secretary of State John F. Kerry are being honest when they lay out their justifications for taking military action.

Baraq and Jacques LYING?

Say it ain't so!

Well, then, why aren’t they in the streets by the hundreds of thousands chanting, “Obama lied. Children died.” and other well-worn slogans used against Republican presidents? Cat gotcher tongues?

HA, Pelosi will bring them in one by one and start pulling out their fingernails, like she did over Obama-care, to get their vote for Obama’s red line. She doesnt fool around.

She is NO Bohner p...y

What happens if Odumbass sends a few planes over there to bomb, and they get shot down?

Or worse... the pilots taken prisoner?

I trust John Kerry.
This is the man who should have been president.

Anyone who beheads charlie in nam and then attaches electrodes to their genitals and then rapes them is what we need against these terrorists.

That's right! I forgot what a cold hearted bad-a$$ Kerry was in Vietnam. Didn't he also have like 10 purple hearts and stuff?

No one has considered that Syria’s Air Defense systems were supplied by Russia, and probably manned by Russians. What will happen when we start killing Russians??

Hmmmmm...in 2009/2010, seems these were the same percentages against 'Obamacare' . How did that work out?

I believe he was KIA three times and lost an arm and a leg at some point. He chewed the limbs off a corpse (or was it corps) and sewed them on himself with the threads from the shreded remains of the shirt worn by the corpse now missing it’s extremities.

And he did it with no pain killers. But this was because he was still dead from his second KIA.

Kerry has voted against almost every weapon system and military action since he had become senator but he is now suddenly Totally gung-ho over attacking Syria and arming the Al-Queda rebels with advanced weapon technology.

WOW, This must be totally serious.
Thank God we have the keen minds of team kerry/hussein, Both working hard to protect us and somehow get us through these dire straits....

Not only did Code Pink turn out, Medea Benjamin put on quite a show. She interrupted Kerry and he acknowledged her presence with comments.

Yes...and also the bailout numbers. Seems our "representative" government no longer cares what the people think. I'm pretty sure we broke off with England so that we could be represented...or maybe I am wrong..did they rewrite that history as well?

Well, here they are, late but here they are. Good.

Mind you, it's rather harsh to suggest that Kerry and 0bama might be lying through their teeth to attain a political objective.

I want everyone here to know I typed the above sentence without breaking out in screaming laughter.

27% of ANYONE supporting this is a shame. It was only 8%. Then the Negro, or colored president, came out and spoke, they started have tingles up their legs and all of a sudden became hawks.

Yet they’ll vote for democrats now and forever and the democrats know it. So their protests aren’t convincing anyone.

Yes. Media mileage, manipulated numbers, faux photos, rinse and repeat, does rework those numbers in remarkable time.

I bet we go, and surprised if the vote is “no”.

May be public outcry will prevail, but Obama in a corner is not a pretty sight. He has to go or be DONE.

I believe he was KIA three times and lost an arm and a leg at some point.

I heard that in a prior life that is happening right now, John Kerry was actually Chuck Norris. Only he can live in different time continuums as different people at the same time. That's what a douchebag he is.

John F’n Kerry should go to Syria himself and throw some of his medals at the soldiers who are killing the terrorists. That will show them.

I want to know why these liberals are so adamant about going to war with Syria. They are acting like they are possessed. It's been like a full court press over the last few days. What is their real motivation? We all know they don't care about dead Syrian’s.

At long last the far left and far right agree on something—Obama lies and his ego driven actions may well see lots of folks dead and not just in Syria too. It could spill over into our own land.
