Obama the wuss
For a short time I was proud of Obama for his stated attention to teach Syria a lesson for using chemical weapons, which he had previously told them they had better not do.
But now it seems that Obama is putting this off for at least 10 more days to allow Congress to approve it, and Republicans in the House of Representatives might not even approve it just because they hate Obama, even though they would have approved George W. Bush making the same request. Furthermore, the administration has been talking more and more about how limited the response is going to be.
One almost gets the impression that Obama is secretly hoping that Republicans in Congress will vote “no” so he gets to avoid doing anything but can put the blame for doing nothing on Republicans.
