As The British Aren’t Coming … Nearly 80% of Americans Want Congressional Approval Before Obama Attacks Syria
Welcome to Obama’s War: The Imperial President Barack Obama could care less what “We the People” think or the US Constitution and the separations of power.
As stated in a NBC News poll, nearly 80% of Americans want Barack Obama to get Congressional approval before the United States military attacks Syria. Let alone 50% of Americans want no military intervention what so ever if Syrian President Bashar Assad attacked his people with chemical weapons. Just yesterday, the British Parliament voted down their countries participation in any such attack. So the questions remains, will Obama ask Congress for approval to attack Syria? If he does, what happens if the Congress says No?
So does this mean the the US is going to attack a Middle East country on its own with no mission? Oh that will go over well on the Arab street. But how is Obama treating this any different than Obamacare, ram it through at all cost. This president has no idea how to create any consensus, they just assumed it. Right now, Obama has a ‘Coalition of None’.
Nearly 80 percent of Americans believe President Barack Obama should receive congressional approval before using force in Syria, but the nation is divided over the scope of any potential strike, a new NBC News poll shows.
The nation loses a key ally in its consensus building efforts, as Britain’s parliament votes against supporting any U.S. strikes in Syria. NBC’s Andrea Mitchell reports.
Fifty percent of Americans believe the United States should not intervene in the wake of suspected chemical weapons attacks by Syrian President Bashar Assad, according to the poll. But the public is more supportive of military action when it’s limited to launching cruise missiles from U.S. naval ships – 50 percent favor that kind of intervention, while 44 percent oppose it.
Still, a whopping 79 percent of respondents – including nearly seven-in-10 Democrats and 90 percent of Republicans – say the president should be required to receive congressional approval before taking any action.
From The Weekly Standard … No Regime Change—and Maybe No Strike At All.
Hmm, I wonder if Obama is going golfing this weekend?
