17. I actually see this as a way out for Obama, he did not jump when the report went out Assad had used

Gas and all the talk was about him not taking action. When the UK voted down taking action it left the US holding the bag for the world. Obama can not claim he did all he could and has sent Kerry out to sell the strikes but the Congress has voted down the possibility and he will abide with their decision. Here is the cover he may have preferred but could not say and he would have fallen victim to many attacks. I don't think after the invasion on Iraq on false intelligence many Americans are tired if protecting the world. I heard one representative say this morning Obama did not act swiftly enough but when he took action in Libya he was criticized for not getting Congressional approval. I think the messed up invasion has turned Americans from wanting to go from war to war. Take your cover, President Obama, enjoy the luxury afforded to you. The GOP can not say their colors don't run, well now they are in the same book as Democrats.
