Breaking: Obama to make case for Syria strike in speech Tuesday

President Obama will make the case for a military strike on Syria during a speech to the American public on Tuesday from the White House.

"I'll make the best case I can to the American people, as well as the international community," Obama said Friday during a news conference in St. Petersburg, Russia, where he is attending the G-20 economic summit.


  1. I'm mystified by Obama's continuous calls for missile strikes. If Congress rejects his initial request, he can save face by claiming they tied his hands and that he's adhering to the Constitutional limits.

    To expend political capital to turn the vote, it appears he's really convinced this is the right strategy, which leads me to believe he's either a puppet getting instructions from his masters, or that he's just not too bright.

    Either way, this man's actions are downright scary. Is he really willing to unleash an incredibly deadly world war over some sarin gas attacks?

    1. He's a puppet, for sure, but he may not be overtly aware of that fact. The guy is surrounded by handlers all day, every day. At this point, I think he fears a "no" vote would make him personally look weak and isolated to Americans and the world. That's probably what his handlers are telling him.
