    Obama tosses Syrian hot potato into Republicans' laps

    By James Simpson

    Since first being elected, President Obama has made much of his determination to "go it alone" when he can't get his way from Congress. This has resulted in an endless chain of unprecedented, unconstitutional and illegal actions to advance his self-serving political agenda. At every turn, Obama has sought to make Congress irrelevant. Unfortunately the gutless GOP political leadership aided and abetted him, at the very least by doing nothing, and sometimes even colluding in his efforts. Marco Rubio's disgraceful illegal alien "reform" plan comes immediately to mind, but so do the countless "showdowns" with the President, in which Republicans have repeatedly blinked.

    But either through sheer stupidity, or likely, some much more malevolent, calculated strategy, Obama has painted himself into an impossible corner by pronouncing a very specific "red line" that, if crossed by our enemies, promised military action. So now when forced by his own words to deliver the goods, what does he do? Something he has never done before: he decides to "consult" Congress.

    What cheek!

    Do you see what has happened here? By giving the issue to Congress, he evades sole responsibility and makes himself look "principled" for pretending to follow the Constitution by acknowledging Congress's responsibility to "declare war" -- never mind that the contemplated actions don't rise to the level of a war declaration. Because our national media conspires with Obama on a daily basis, no matter what Congress decides, Republicans will take the blame, and you can be sure it will be used as a 2014 campaign issue against them. Finally, this whole controversy has taken the country's mind off Obama's many politically damaging scandals....

    Oil prices are rising and the stock markets are showing signs of uncertainty.

    What do John McCain and John Kerry have in common?

    They're both full of it and need to hush.

    Does this mean that we get to chant "No blood for oil" and accuse Obama of enriching his cronies?

    If McCain gets a colonoscopy, will they be able to recover Graham's nose?

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
