(RedState)   Why is the GOP Congressional leadership backing Obama's Syria plan? Apparently John Boehner has confirmed to people he thinks doing so will give him leverage over Obama to get Obamacare defunded   (redstate.com) divider line 52

Yeah, that plan will definitely work and is not at all incredibly stupid.

I heard the Illuminati are behind it. They control the world's supply of fake tanning solution and Scotch, so Boehner has to do whatever they want.

Obama has really turned this into a win-win-win situation.
Congress doesn't approve? No unpopular war and he can blame civilian deaths in Syria on Congress.
Approval without Obamacare defunding? Obamacare continues on.
Approval with Obamacare defunding? Veto, and gets to upbraid Congress for trying to save Syrian lives at the expense of Americans getting medical coverage.

Michael Hastings had info that a false flag operation using chemical weapons was being planned in Syria.  With Iraq over and Afghanistan soon to be, the military industrial complex needed new demand for their products.

It was never about Israel or Iran or even Syria.  Those are all just red herrings.

Nah.

Boehner - pressure from AIPAC, too tired of this shiat to argue anymore. Just wants another drink.
McCain - "There's a war vote? Go ahead and put me down with the 'Ayes'. I'm almost breaking even here, couple of more hands and I might be up a bit."
Obama - "Hey guys, chemical weapons are bad amirite? Anyone? Aww, farkin' come on, guys."

Oh that is easy, lets keep our healthcare and not go to war.  The GOP options are perverse, kill people overseas and the poor die at home all in the same bill.
 
2013-09-04 02:50:10 PM  
This could get fun.

Consider: declarations of war, as a power vested solely with Congress, do not require the President's signature to take effect and are not subject to vetoes. A law defunding the ACA would require the President's signature or veto.

I can easily envision the following scenario: the Senate passes a Syria AUMF. The House passes a bill that includes the Syria AUMF, plus an amendment defunding the ACA. Since the Senate didn't pass the bill with the ACA amendment, it doesn't get sent to the President and he doesn't have to veto it, but does the AUMF take effect since it's now been passed by both Houses of Congress?
 
2013-09-04 03:04:06 PM  
Not sure why they think this is a winning strategy.  In no way does action in Syria correspond to defunding a massive domestic program.  Not sure why this won't be laughed in their faces.  But it's contemporary America, so who knows.

I can't wait to see how Saxby Chambliss walks back the shiat he was peddling on Face the Nation. Oh wait, he won't, he will just pretend he never said it and his constituents will forget he ever said it because the GOP base approaches politics like something between a witch burning and NASCAR fandom.
