Call Hillary! now!
POTUS looks pasty and withered.

Maybe he shouldn't be such a war vampire.

He's backed into a corner. Not much support worldwide for military intervention in Syria, but he will look weak if he doesn't go ahead now. Russia is not backing down. So, does he start WWIII or look weak? I'd be a looking a bit shaky in his position too.

Ah, the presidency will do that to you. Imagine what Hilary will look like after a term or two: probably like Margaret Thatcher in her last public appearance, with a mindless expression on her face and her gray hair in a 1970's style coiffe, clueless to her whereabouts and her Depends needing a change.

Obama has been a huge supporter of the military-industrial complex, so he has only himself to blame for getting himself into this mess.

It was going to happen anyway no matter who is POTUS. Syria is one of the last Arab states yet to be attacked on the NWO hit list.

All US presidents age at a rate of 5 years a year. British PMs also - did you see Tony Blair by the time he left office?

How can a black man look pasty?

Certainly not more than any other president

With both this Syria thing and the domestic spying issue, I get the feeling he's really not on board. It doesn't go with his general personality or character. So having to take the positions he's taking is causing him inner conflict.

His incompetence is finally catching up for all to see.

Who the fuck is crazy enough to want that job?

Okay, FISA was my first hint that he was the same boss as the last boss.
He needs to make more speeches. I cum my pants when he speaks.

This whole Syria thing is mess and appears to be lose/lose. Sending it to Congress just turned it into an even bigger cluster fuck. I still don't get why he did it.
Hilary would have covered her tracks in a more sleazy but less openly messy way.

I believe he sent it to Congress so it would lose, giving him the out he wants to avoid a strike and the possible ramifications with Russia, Israel, and/or Iran.
Meanwhile, he and a small group of leaders get to hold the moral high ground.

Losing in Congress makes him look weak and hurts US credibility (which I guess is already hurt). But I guess he does walk away with the moral high ground. Pelosi and the Dems who have to carry his water must hate him.

R21, yes, but it beats the consequences of an attack on Israel by Syria or Iran, or even a military exchange between the U.S. and Russia, with the resulting escalation in any of those scenarios.

But he could have avoided that by taking very limited military action in Syria or just sending humanitarian aid.
I still find the situation very confusing.

He must be sharting up a storm over this.

I'm pretty sure Congress will give him a green light on this, but it would almost be better if it didn't.
When I think about Obama I think about someone who had to learn on the job in a massive way. He was truly inexperienced as a leader when he ran for POTUS.
I wonder where he keeps his Nobel Prize medal and the diploma...

My representative is super Dem and I guess follows ALL party talking points. He's spouting off on Facebook about why we have to get involved in Syria and all his constituents are are responding saying "Um, no, we really don't and we really shouldn't."
All those posts on Reddit of the soldiers holding up signs saying "I didn't sign up to defend terrorists" is really destroying any potential support amongst the younger demo. The only people supporting this are those with ties to military contractors and those who just memorize Dem. talking points (the latter is usually a good thing...not in this case).

The video of McCain being shouted down at a town meeting in AZ says it all.
We do not need this burden.
