Pew Research Poll: 48% of Americans Against Military Strike against Syria, Only 29% Support It, 48% Against … ABC/WAPO Poll: 36% For, 59% Against
America has finally reached a bipartisan consensus, they are against Obama’s actions of wanting a military strike against Syria …
A PEW Research poll shows that Barack Obama, John Kerry, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the new found Democrat military hawks have little support among the American people with regards to a military action against Syria for Assad’s use of chemical weapons against his people. According to the poll, 48% of Americans are against military action, while only a meager 29% support it. The numbers against any military action against Syria are negative for Obama across party lines. Finally we have bi-partisan agreement, (Democrats: pro 29% – against 48%) … (Republicans: pro 35% – against 40%) … (Independents: pro 29%, against 50%).
But does Obama care what “We the People” think? Hardly, look how we got Obamacare rammed down our throats. Remember the lies were were told about that as well when the “Campaigner” in Chief misrepresented that as well? Most Americans understand that the using of chemical weapons is hideous, but how is it different from the 100′s of thousands of people previously killed in this Syrian civil war? They also understand that with a “chicken hawk” like Obama at the reigns, an attack on Assad and taking out his military and infrastructure would only allow Al-Qaeda to swoop in to power. So why doesn’t Obama, or does he?
President Obama faces an uphill battle in making the case for U.S. military action in Syria. By a 48% to 29% margin, more Americans oppose than support conducting military airstrikes against Syria in response to reports that the Syrian government used chemical weapons.
The new national survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted Aug. 29-Sept. 1 among 1,000 adults, finds that Obama has significant ground to make up in his own party. Just 29% of Democrats favor conducting airstrikes against Syria while 48% are opposed. Opinion among independents is similar (29% favor, 50% oppose). Republicans are more divided, with 35% favoring airstrikes and 40% opposed.
The military action is resoundingly looked upon by Americans as doing little good and in fact making matters much worse in the Middle East. A whopping 74% believe that U.S. airstrikes in Syria are likely to create a backlash against the United States and its allies in the region. Gee, ya think? Barack Obama claims that GITMO is a vehicle for terrorist recruitment, um, what the hell does he think a solo US strike with no, none, nada collation would do? Another 61% of Americans think that such a military action could lead to a long term military action in Syria.
CNN also is reporting that another national poll, an ABC News/Washington Post survey shows that only 36% of the public supports launching missile strikes against the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad if the U.S. has determined that Damascus has used chemical weapons against its own citizens. 59% of Americans oppose military action.
Nearly six in 10 Americans in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll oppose unilateral U.S. missile strikes against Syria, and even more oppose arming the Syrian rebels – a complication for Barack Obama and proponents of military action in Congress alike.
Even given the United States’ assertion that the Syrian government used chemical weapons in the civil war there, 59 percent in the national survey, conducted Wednesday through Sunday, oppose U.S. missile strikes, far more than the 36 percent who support them.
The American people have lost trust in Obama and his foreign policy because frankly, he has none. Obama’s vision has worked so well in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and now Syria.
Obama’s Shot Across Syria’s Bow, Limited Military Operation … But What is the Point of Military Action … Does He Realize he is Siding with Al-Qaeda and Now Great Britain, France, German and Arab League Say Not So Fast
President Barack Obama calls for a shot across the bow and a limited military operation in a strike again Syria for their use of chemical weapons. Obama has called for a “Decisive but limited” military action. WHAT? Does this chicken hawk have any idea what he is talking about? So he wants to strike Syria, but does not want regime change. Does Obama realize that helping the rebels actually means that the United States is aiding Al-Qaeda? Yes, the very folks that killed nearly 3000 individuals on 9-11 in NYC, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. President says Syria’s use of chemical weapons affects US interests. How, exactly? One might say that an attack on Syria by the US, especially standing alone, would have a greater consequence on US interests.
Obama claimed he had support from foreign countries in the strike against Syria, not so fast. Great Britain calls for restraint and a political solution through the UN. And upon further evaluation, France changes its tone and seeks a political solution the ultimate goal for Syria. Germany not on board either.
Barack Obama, the community agitator has backed himself into a corner. This is why you do not draw a line in the sand that you are not willing to back up. Don’t play a game of chicken with people who do not care and do not respect you. Speaking of playing a game of chicken, Russia sending warships to the Mediterranean.
President Barack Obama promised Wednesday that any U.S. military strike at Syria would be a “shot across the bow” that avoids seeing America pulled into “any kind of open-ended conflict.”
Speaking in a wide-ranging interview with PBS Newshour, Obama insisted he has not made a decision on how best to respond to the alleged massacre of civilians by forces loyal to Syrian strongman Bashar Assad using chemical weapons.
But “if, in fact, we can take limited, tailored approaches, not getting drawn into a long conflict — not a repetition of, you know, Iraq, which I know a lot of people are worried about — but if we are saying in a clear and decisive but very limited way, we send a shot across the bow saying, stop doing this, that can have a positive impact on our national security over the long term,” the president said.
That would send the Assad regime “a pretty strong signal, that in fact, it better not do it again.”
Obama, making his first public remarks on the crisis since a CNN interview that aired Friday, rejected claims that rebels fighting to topple Assad were behind the Aug. 21 attack.
“We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact carried these out. And if that’s so, then there need to be international consequences,” he said.
“I have no interest in any kind of open-ended conflict in Syria, but we do have to make sure that when countries break international norms on weapons like chemical weapons that could threaten us, that they are held accountable,” he said.
The US and UK on Thursday appeared to have backed down from an immediate punitive military strike against Syria, even as embattled President Bashar al-Assad vowed that his country would emerge “victorious” in any confrontation with America and its allies.
A strike by western forces had appeared imminent but US allies were increasingly reluctant to act before hearing the results of a UN probe into the alleged poisonous gas attacks in the war-torn country on August 21.
President Barack Obama has said he had not yet decided whether to attack Syria in response to alleged use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime, but a strike still appeared likely as the US stopped seeking a UN mandate.
This is why the United States was out of their collective minds for reelecting a community agitator, a Campaigner in Chief, a misleader as President.
Russian President Vladimir Putin & Kremlin Cheers Obama Victory …They Can’t Wait for His “Flexibility”
Following the election of Barack Obama Tuesday night for a second term, the Kremlin cheered Obama’s victory. Why you might ask? They were looking forward to his new “flexibility” after his last election of course as Obama told Russian President Dmitri Medvedev when Obama thought no one was listening.
MOSCOW – Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent a congratulatory note to President Obama after his re-election Tuesday, his spokesman said. The Kremlin says it will make the text public after the Americans have received it. Putin is also expected to call Obama personally “in the near future.” “In general, the Kremlin took the news about Barack Obama’s victory in the elections very positively,” spokesman Dmitri Peskov said, according to the Interfax news agency. “We have the hope that positive initiatives in bilateral relations and in Russian-U.S. interaction on the international arena in the interests of international security and stability will be developed and improved,” he added. It is perhaps not surprising that the Kremlin is pleased with the outcome of the election, especially since President Obama told then-President Dmitri Medvedev earlier this year that he would have more flexibility after the election to negotiate NATO plans to place components of a missile-defense shield in Eastern Europe.
Former Iranian Hostage Don Cooke Compares Obama’s Foreign Policy to Jimmy Carter … Using the Same Ambivalence as Carter in the 1970′s
Here is a ringing endorsement against Barack Obama and his foreign policy failures.
Don Cooke, former Iranian hostage who was taken hostage by Islamist students and militants at the U.S. Embassy on November 4, 1979 in Tehran at age 23 and held for 444 days, was interviewed by FOX News over the weekend and stated that Barack Obama is showing the same ambivalent foreign policy as Jimmy Carter. There is something to be proud of, having the same ambivalent foreign policy as another failed Democrat president.
From the FOX News Insider:
Cooke said the crisis started during a period – under President Jimmy Carter – of “ambivalent” foreign policy toward the Middle East. He said only after the election of Ronald Reagan did the Iranian government realize the U.S. was serious and release the hostages.
“At this point, (Iran) sees ambivalence in the U.S. foreign policy and they don’t see any particular reason to stop (their nuclear program). … The sanctions are starting to bite, but I wish we had gone to these very punishing sanctions a bit earlier. Maybe we might see results by now,” Cooke said.
LVRJ Rips Obama over Benghazi Terrorist Blunder, Lies and Cover Up … Obama unworthy commander-in-chief
No truer words have ever been spoken … the Las Vegas Review Journal reports that President Barack Obama is unworthy of being Commander in Chief.
The LVRJ blast Barack Obama for his handling of the Benghazi attacks that gave rise to the death of four Americans including US Ambassador Stevens. The Obama administration botched Benghazi before, during and after the attacks. We are always very critical of the MSM; however, we give kudos when it is deserved. It certainly is here.
The Obama administration sat by doing nothing for seven hours that night, ignoring calls to dispatch help from our bases in Italy, less than two hours away. It has spent the past seven weeks stretching the story out, engaging in misdirection and deception involving supposed indigenous outrage over an obscure anti-Muslim video, confident that with the aid of a docile press corps this infamous climax to four years of misguided foreign policy can be swept under the rug, at least until after Tuesday’s election.
I have to admit I am impressed by the LVRJ and their extremely truthful accounts of this story and Obama’s failure as Commander in Chief. However, the MSM has all but avoided it, namely the TV media. Instead of providing answers to things that he knows first hand, Obama has dodged the questions so the the outcome is done after the election. Is that what we need as a Commander in Chief, a president that would hold off on the truth of the death of 4 Americans for his own political gain?
Not only did the White House do nothing, there are now reports that a counterterrorism team ready to launch a rescue mission was ordered to stand down.
Read the full story HERE, it is an eye opener, especially coming from the MSM. Could this have an affect in Nevada voting? The end result is that Obama has lost the right yo be president.
FOX News Catherine Herridge: State Department Culpable in Death of Ambassador Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty & Sean Smith
Is this the “SMOKING GUN” … Just imagine America if the rest of the MSM did their jobs and covered the Benghazi murders and Obama White House cover up like they did “Watergate”?
Last night FOX News foreign policy analyst Catherine Herridge went ‘On the record’ with Greta van Susteren and made a damning but factually correct statement … “From what I see the State Department has culpability in the death of the US Ambassador and three Americans.”
This followed the release of the “classified” cable from Ambassador Stevens on August 15 to the State Department that stated the consulate could not defend against a “coordinated attack.”
VIDEO Hat Tip – The Gateway Pundit
“What I see is a growing body of evidence that the State Department has culpability in the death of the ambassador and those three Americans. The warnings were specific. They were direct. They named the enemy and they said that this consulate needed more support. And it also indicated in the cable that the consulate should probably move long term into the annex. We now know that’s the CIA facility in Benghazi… I think it’s important that the people who died have themselves honored with the facts and I think we’re starting to get the facts.”
However, instead we are presented with no answers and stonewalling from President Barack Obama and his Administration. Obama claims we must wait for the investigation, yet he refuses to tell America what he knew and when he knew it. Sound familiar America? Barack Obama, the Democrat Obamamessiah is nothing more than Richard Nixon with a “D”.
In the below video, former Bush AG Michael Mukasey is questioning why Barack Obama needs an investigation before he reveals what he personally knew and when he knew it about the Benghazi attack and whether he took any action to stop it. Heck, how about help once the attack began! The reason why not … his reelection.
Classified August Cable Signed By Ambassador Stevens Warned Benghazi Consulate Couldn’t Withstand ‘Coordinated Attack’ and Obama Administration Did Nothing
The Obama Administration knew and did absolutely nothing …
A little less than a month before the Benghazi, Libya consulate attack, Ambassidor Stevens sent an cable to the State Department that the consulate could not defend against a “coordinated attack”. As reported by FOX News and ignored by the rest of the in the tank for Obama MSM. The classified cable was sent on August 15 and addressed to Hillary Clinton and the State Department stating that terror groups were on the rise such as Islamist militias, Al-Qaeda, QRF Brigade and Ansar al-Sharia, to ‘Takfirist thugs.
The U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an “emergency meeting” less than a month before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, because Al Qaeda had training camps in Benghazi and the consulate could not defend against a “coordinated attack,” according to a classified cable reviewed by Fox News.
Summarizing an Aug. 15 emergency meeting convened by the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Aug. 16 cable marked “SECRET” said that the State Department’s senior security officer, also known as the RSO, did not believe the consulate could be protected.
“RSO (Regional Security Officer) expressed concerns with the ability to defend Post in the event of a coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities, host nation support, and the overall size of the compound,” the cable said.
According to a review of the cable addressed to the Office of the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Emergency Action Committee was also briefed “on the location of approximately ten Islamist militias and AQ training camps within Benghazi … these groups ran the spectrum from Islamist militias, such as the QRF Brigade and Ansar al-Sharia, to ‘Takfirist thugs.’” Each U.S. mission has a so-called Emergency Action Committee that is responsible for security measures and emergency planning.
As we are reminded by Hot Air, this was not the first of such warnings, it was at least the third. There is no way that the State Department can claim that they were not aware of the dangerous situation on the ground in Benghazi as the consulate had been attacked on multiple occasions. It is also impossible to believe, as stated at NRO, that this escalation of violence and danger had not been passed on to the White House and President Obama.
However, Obama continues to stonewall and refuse to answer questions as to why Ambassidor Steven’s pleas for security went unanswered and why Steven’s cries for help on 9-11 were denied. The result, Stevens and three others were murdered by terrorists as the Obama WH blamed a video tape knowing full well what the truth was.
How can anyone justify not only not securing the facility, but abandoning them and leaving them to die? This is why Obama refuses to answer questions. Benghazigate is worse than Watergate as people died, yet the MSM refuses to cover the story because it would harm their candidate. Shameful, simply shameful.
Charles Woods, Father of Murdered Navy Seal, Tyrone Woods, Blasts Obama: “Like Shaking Hands With Dead Fish” & Hillary Clinton “Not Sincere”
Another Obamanation …
Charles Woods, the father of murdered Navy Seal, Tyrone Woods, who was murdered in Benghazi, Libya at the hands of radical Islamic terrorist is speaking out and blasting President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Charles Woods was extremely critical of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton stating, shaking hands with Obama was ‘Like Shaking Hands With Dead Fish’ and Hillary Clinton “Did Not Appear To Be One Bit Sincere At All” He appeared on the Lars Larson Show, listen below.
Father of Former Navy SEAL Killed in Benghazi Recounts Meeting President, Sec. of State: Shaking Hands With Obama ‘Like Shaking Hands With Dead Fish’…. Hillary Clinton “Did Not Appear To Be One Bit Sincere At All”
Charles Woods, Father Tyrone Woods calls into the Lars Larson Radio Program
CHARLES WOODS: “I could tell…He kinda mumbled, I’m sorry. His face was looking at me but his eye were looking over my shoulder like he couldn’t look me in the eye”
How could you blame a father from being so critical of the Obama Administration who refuses to provide a family answers to the death of his son and is covering up what really happened? Obama and his minions have stonewalled those he want the truth in a political four-corners offense to make this “not optimal” reelection story of the death of four Americans do away. They pretend like they care, but from the mouth of a parent of a deceased son, that is hardly the case.
Did You Miss This … Rush Limbaugh Discusses the Drive By MSM Shocked by Focus Group Voter Reaction to Debate between Romney & Obama
More MSM bias … they just were stunned that voters reacted positive to Mitt Romney, Just Stunned!!!
If the liberal MSM was shocked by the reaction of focus group voters following the third and final presidential debate, they are in for a doozy election eve. The CBS focus group of undecided voters in Ohio gave the debate win to Mitt Romney. OUCH, that was not what the liberal media wanted to hear.
Rush Limbaugh discusses the shock of the MSM as only he can.
To the audio sound bites! This morning on CBS This Morning, I have a portion here of National Correspondent Dean Reynolds’ report on a panel of undecided Ohio voters who watched last night’s debate and what they got from it.
Now, you can’t see it, obviously. This is radio. But Norah O’Donnell’s face in this sound bite is priceless. These people cannot believe what they are hearing. What we have here is an undecided Ohio voter on this panel, Norah O’Donnell and the cohost Charlie Rose. And they start off here with Dean Reynolds, who is a CBS correspondent in Ohio.
REYNOLDS: When it was all over, they were asked who won. The president got two votes. Governor Romney got six. All had made up their minds, at least for now.
Chris Wallace Provides Post Debate Analysis on FOX News …“You Would Have Thought Romney Was The President” … Romney Said, “Mr. President, America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators.”
Attacking Romney and Snark is not a foreign policy or Presidential …
Last night following the third and final 2012 Presidential debate from Lynn University, Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday provided his post game analysis. Wallace said, “You Would Have Thought Romney Was The President.”
Mitt Romney’s objective was to appear Presidential and capable in the eyes of America being President of the United States. Obama’s goal was to trivialize Romney. In the end through his snark and smallness Obama trivialized himself. Many focused on Obama’s snark of horses, bayonets and ships; however, that was hardly the line of the night.
The Presidential line of the evening was when Mitt Romney blasted Barack Obama for his apology tour after taking office and bashing America. Romney stated, Mr. President, America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators. AMEN!
ROMNEY: We’re four years closer to a nuclear Iran. We’re four years closer to a nuclear Iran. And – and – we should not have wasted these four years to the extent they – they continue to be able to spin these centrifuges and get that much closer. That’s number one.
Number two, Mr. President, the reason I call it an apology tour is because you went to the Middle East and you flew to Egypt and to Saudi Arabia and to Turkey and Iraq. And by the way, you skipped Israel, our closest friend in the region, but you went to the other nations.
And by the way, they noticed that you skipped Israel. And then in those nations, and on Arabic TV, you said that America had been dismissive and derisive. You said that on occasion America had dictated to other nations.
Mr. President, America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators.
